We loved our stay! Even though the weather was clod and wet, we were made to feel welcome in every way.
My family had a great weekend at the farm with farm animals. The highlight for us was horse riding, oh! What an experience of a lifetime. My baby was riding a pony by the name of Boo-boo, she cant stop talking about her Boo-boo. I also loved and enjoyed riding Scotty, he is such a 'gentleman'. The place is perfect for a family, the picnic place, the braai area and the play area for the kids. there are other facilities that we did not get used due to time frame and the season. We would definitely like to come back in some. Ali, thank you for your hospitality and friendliness. You made us enjoy... see more
Great place for a family breakaway. I had an experience of the best host, Alison, her grandchildren, the staff are the best. Very accomodating and great care for the guest needs, felt like a home. The animals are good company as well, enjoyed the rides. I would definetely recommend this to everyone and will look forward to go back again. The hosts always go out of their way to make the stay comfortable at odd hours as well.
Very secluded; quiet and charm. Back to nature.
