My family and I had a wonderful 4 night stay at Manor House, which comfortably accommodated 6 adults and 3 young children. It was a beautiful peaceful setting and the children loved exploring the rambling garden and feeding the farm animals every day. The host family were really helpful and welcoming and it was wonderful to be able to purchase freshly baked bread, biscuits and homemade produce. There is a beautiful kloof to visit, plenty of farm roads to walk/run on and a lovely little hike up the koppie to enjoy the view. The bird-life and spring flowers were beautiful too! A tranquil spot for a family getaway to escape city life.

Superb. 5 out of 5

The Country Garden is always a wonderful experience for us, especially the children. We slept in the Manor House this year and found it very charming and well equipped.

Actually I liked my stay in The Country Garden Farm, it was an amazing time, a quiet and peaceful environment.
Host family were helpful without interfering and their kids were so kind and polite. My kids enjoyed the spent time with the animals.
All in all its a perfect place to go away from city noises and have a spiritual break.
