Seldom does one in life have the privilege of meeting and sharing a short part of your own life with the genuine people of our country. This soon became apparent with Ernest and Stella who run Peters Place, a simple, clean and welcoming stopover for 2 nights. Wholesome food, definitely not cordon bleu, but really good, with a twinkle in Stella’s eye when I put the cumquat in and chewed! The request for home-made soup delivered with aplomb with home-made bread, top class.
Oom Cornelius (owner of the farm) who shares the meals and chats around the fire, telling life stories, is a genuine SA gentleman who gives the most enduring of hugs, and knows the area history and roads like no other. To own a property of such staggering beauty can only be exulted by the kindness shared by these 3 people, and will definitely be on the list for any future visits to the area.
Engage and enjoy SA treasures, as these folk are just that.

After a full day's travel on the dirt roads in the area and exposure to the unsophisticated homesteads around, we should have perhaps been more aware of what we had booked for. The farmstead is very rustic and basic and it took a little while to realise that we were far from the comforts often taken for granted. We learned the Peter had passed away the week before after a lengthy battle with cancer and Stella and Ernst were running the show. They were very friendly and because the accommodation included dinner (just as well as there's nothing else for miles around)as well as breakfast, the comfortable 'lounge' enabled friendly conversation among us and contributed to the stay being quite acceptable after all. This is a typical rural farm with generators and Gas and wholesome meals.
