Kinmel guest farm, a place to break away, reflect and rejuvenate! Come visit and enjoy the magnificence of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains.

Just past the picturesque town of Rhodes, recently declared a conservation area, you will find the outstretched fields and mountain slopes of the farm Kinmel. We offer a complete break away from it all, as Kinmel is only reachable by gravel road.

The old barn were transformed and divided into 2 comfortable, private, fully equipped, fresh and easy to live in chalets. Full kitchen, 2 bathrooms (bath and shower), perfectly furnished and spacious enough for groups of up to 8 per chalet, and at the same time, still cosy enough for a break away weekend for 2.

Wilgerboom chalet can sleep up to 8, Bergstroom chalet up to 11. Combine both chalets for a relaxing getaway and get-together for the whole family.

Kinmel is perfectly situated at the heart of some of South Africa’s most spectacular mountain passes. Very near to the foot of Naude’s Nek pass and a mere 20km from the Tiffindell ski resort and mount of Ben McDhui (the highest peak in the Cape). Ten of the country’s top and most spectacular high altitude mountain passes are within easy reach from the farm.

Apart from our child friendly chalets, complete with fireplace, the perfect ‘stoep’ for a ‘braai’ and out-stretched lawn, Kinmel is also a fully functional and active farm. Many a sheep bleating away adds to the farm’s peaceful and refreshing atmosphere. Only topped by trout meandering in the farm’s crystal clear personal stretch of the Bell River, a mere 500m from the chalet, making Kinmel a fly fishing hotspot.

Daytime hiking offers a possible glimpse of the endangered Bearded Vulture as well as various other wild life and spectacular flora. Night time offers unparalleled star gazing.

Come Winter, Kinmel’s outstretched lawn can transform overnight into a white and snowy wonderland!

Kick your day of with an early morning hike, take a drive up some of our countries most spectacular mountain passes, spoil your fly-fishing rod with a scintillating sunset stroll down river…and as the quiet darkens settles….sit, breathe and put your feet up next to the crackling flames of a cosy fireplace.

Kinmel …where eagles come to stretch their wings!

The cottage was well equipped, with good quality linen, towels and kitchen utensils. A lovely view greets visitors as they arrive, and the hostess was waiting for us when we arrived. Hot showers, comfortable beds and a verandah with a lot of chairs where we sat and just took in the beauty of the surroundings. We'll definitely visit Kinmel again, and can recommend it to all visitors

What a wonderful experience! Our hosts were amazing in every way, they went the extra mile with my small boys allowing them to touch and feed one of the lambs. We will definitely go back

Beautiful area, great people and fantastic roads for adventure biking!

The scenic beauty of the area is spectacular. The road from Barkley East was quite bad in places, and it took a long time to travel, the town is almost empty of residents, with a "closed up" feeling. No coffee shops or restaurants available in town. It is a good birding destination for high altitude special species, but high clearance vehicle is necessary, and 4x4 is essential for travel along Naude's nek pass.

Amazing scenery. Naudes Nek was an awesome experience. Hours of dirt road getting in and out of Rhodes though - suggest 4x4 only.
