We stayed at Mara Farm from 22 June 2013 to 29 June 2013 in the main house. The main house is an amazing old farm house with 4 bedrooms. All the bedrooms are very large with excellent decor and bedding. The warm electric blankets removed the cold from our bodies. The kitchen was average fitted and very large (the toaster was faulty and did not work). The large combined dining room and lounge was very pleasant. The small fireplace was well positioned and we spent most of our early evening hours in front of the fire! The lapa is well fitted with a weber braai and a gas braai. We were supplied with a constant flow of wood without any failure. Three out of the four bedrooms had their own bathroom with showers. There was another separate bathroom with a bath. Plus another guest toilet. All the bedrooms had no build-in cupboards, but this did not bother us at all. All-in-all it is an amazing place to spend a winter holiday. We used Mara Farm as a central base from where we visited Clarens, Golden Gate, Harrismith, Ficksburg as well as Lesotho (AfriSki and Katse dam). It is a great place to stay with value for money. Our hosts, Steve & Sally, are friendly and made us feel very comfortable and at home away from home. We will most definitely return to Mara Farm and will recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely beautiful surroundings. One of the nicest places I've visited in the Eastern Freestate. Convenient location, not far from Clarens. Sally and Steve warm and welcoming. Enjoyed the stay despite the weather.

Sally and Steve were really welcoming and the views are to die for. Peace and quiet, feel really rested. Not for people who do not like animals.
The accommodation was luxury for us as we are hardened campers in tents sleeping on the ground, but adequate for anyone who wants to self cater.
Thanks a lot for sharing this lovely place with us.

Mara Farm is lovely for big groups or families to get together. Friendly and very hospitable.

What a great weekend at Mara Farm. Although freezing cold, the warm welcome made it so worth it. Very friendly hosts with the most spectacular view of the Maluti Mountains. We will definitely return in the future! Thank you.
