About Korfskop Self-catering Farmhouse

Excellent for a break away. Will definitely recommend it to other.
What a beautiful location! We enjoyed the ambience of the old farmhouse. Everything was there that we needed for our stay. Great hospitality from Ronel, who even picked up something that one of our party had forgotten in Harrismith. A great mountain to explore and find your way up in the 'backyard' if hiking is of interest. We hope to return another time.
Spacious, well kept house in tranquil surroundings, just what we needed.
Dis 'n heerlike plek as jy net wil rus. Jy het alles wat jy nodig het, sonder Gauteng se gejaag.
Wow...a place full of tranquility, simplicity and fundamental convenience. We were really reminded of the importance of taking time off the hustle and bustle of City life. Our brief stay at Krofskop Farmhouse was peaceful, re-energising and fulfilling. Our expectations we exceeded; so much so we have decided to go back for a longer period sometime in April.
