Savour the serenity, peace and rural charm of a working farm within easy reach of our nearest town, Somerset East. We invite you to wander through the extensive park-like garden with its beautiful trees, rich bird-life and natural vegetable garden. We feel privileged to live on such a beautiful property 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. When the citrus, vegetables and 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.
The farm has historical connections to the Craib and Hofmeyr families as well as the Gardiol Oaks at Delville Wood.

Beautiful tranquil setting ideal for a break from the city. Small lambs making noises in the background while you take in the beautiful gardens. Room spacious. The hostess and her husband are both so friendly and helpful... Scrumptious breakfast.. I would highly recommend this guesthouse. Thank you Debbie for five star experience.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Our few days stay was enjoyable and wonderful surroundings and very comfortable all round. I understand that the facility has only been in operation for a short time. Well done to the host.
Superb. 5 out of 5
