Explore the extensive park-like garden with beautiful trees, rich bird-life and natural vegetable gardens. The farm has historical connections to the Craib, Hofmeyr and Schonland families; read about the Gardiol Oaks at Delville Wood. Enjoy the serenity, peace and rural charm of a working farm within easy reach of the town. Stroll the country lanes and breathe in the space. We feel privileged to live on such a beautiful property and encourage you to wander through the garden with its majestic Oak, Stinkwood and Yellowwood trees. Relax on the lawns, enjoy the mass-plantings of agapanthus, irises, arum lilies, red-hot pokers and cannas. Stroll through the natural vegetable gardens (a work in progress). Venture into the Berry House. When blackberries are in season, we’ll provide you with a basket for your pickings. Stop by at the free-range chickens which provide our nutritious breakfast eggs. Birdwatchers will enjoy spotting, among others, the paradise flycatcher, the giant kingfisher, three owl species and the resident fish eagle pair.
