Blackwoods Farm Cottage can accommodate up to 6 guests, and comprises 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burning fireplace and looks out over the rolling hills of the farm valley. Firewood is available with our compliments. The farm is off the Grid and powered only by solar energy and is supplied with fresh Maluti mountain water. This is the ideal getaway for those who love the outdoors.
The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering with a gas stove, microwave, toaster, fridge, cutlery and crockery. There is a round diningroom table and chairs. The lounge opens onto a covered patio with lovely views.
The cottage is surrounded by nature's finest such as horses, cattle, sheep, river, mountains, hiking, fantastic views, and most importantly peace and quiet. Please be mindful that it is on a 2km gravel farm road, please drive slowly.

In Room Facilities:

The main bedroom has a queen-size bed and the second has 2 single beds. A sleeper bed/couch for up to 2 people is available on request in the lounge. A toddler camper cot is available on request for a small fee.

Area Information:

The Eastern Free State town of Fouriesburg is in the scenic Brandwater Basin, surrounded by the Maluti, Rooiberg and Witteberg mountain ranges, on the border of Lesotho.
Fouriesburg is named after Christoffel Fourie, on whose farm, Groenfontein, it was established in 1892. During the Anglo Boer War, it was declared the capital of the Orange Free State Republic – a proclamation yet to be rescinded!
With a primarily agricultural economy – wheat, cherries, asparagus, sunflowers, beans and mielies – it also offers unique scenic beauty, activities for nature and adventure enthusiasts, arts and crafts, places of historical and architectural interest, and small-town hospitality.
A quieter alternative to the bustling village of Clarens (just 35km away), Fouriesburg is a comfortable commuting distance from three of South Africa’s major urban centres: Johannesburg (350km), Durban (400km) and Bloemfontein (250km).

Sit back and relax, that pretty much sums up the beautiful location of Blackwoods. The cottage is really well equipped with all the essentials and much much more than traditionally found at self catering accommodation. The farm has an amazing setting with the backdrop of beautiful mountains which remind you of the Golden Gate mountain range. The friendly horses and cute pot-belly pigs really let you embrace the farm style holiday.

Superb. 5 out of 5

We spent an amazing few days at the farm. I can't say enough about how tranquil and lovely the cottage and farm is. The cottage itself is elegantly decorated and has all the facilities one could need. We were extremely comfortable there and lacked nothing during the stay. The hosts are warm and genuine people and made us feel right at home. Blackwoods is a must and I would highly recommend it as a place to recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
