We did battle to find the farm as we were driving at night and the signage as well as the directions were not very clear.
Also for one night stay I thought it was a bit pricy, considering there is no tv and 2 people have to sleep on the floor.
If you are looking for a really rustic escape then it would be ideal, beautiful morning views.
But don't think we will be going back.
We have a very adequate directions page that is copied from my neighbour Bill Harrops Hot Air Balloon Safaris….and is adjusted for our last mile distance.
There is a google map position on safari now site
There are correct GPS coordinates also on the site
We have suitable and numerous direction signs within a 15klm radius on our access roads.
Cell phone call made would assist with directions.
We do not have people sleeping on the “floor” …..how the client describes sleeping on a sleeper couch as “floor” is way off from truthful.
We are a farm and it can be a challenge to find us after dark, but with correct planning and preparation this should not be an issue.
We do not have TV and this is depicted on the Facilities page on safarinow
This client arrived at 11pm and left at 6.30 in the morning for an adventure race.
Giving us a thumbs down on just about everything without having experienced or even looking at, is severe and I would ask that this review be removed as it is inaccurate and unfounded.

Very friendly welcome and beautiful setting, right next to a lovely river and bicycle path. The chalet was clean and quaint, but there was little attention to detail - bulbs in lamps missing, no toilet paper.

Nicely spaced out chalets. Lots of fun outdoor activities to do.

A little more rustic than what we were expecting but ended up to be a really fantastic weekend. Hardly saw our kids for the whole time we were there as it was secure enough for them to wonder and play with the animals. The one disappointment was that the bathroom doors don't close properly and lights in toilet sections weren't working so really dark when door closed. Over all we were really happy with the accommodation.

We had one of the best weekend getaways ever and would return in a heartbeat. I loved the personal touch and felt like I was part of the family from the minute I got there. My children wished they could have stayed longer. Thanks so much for such a wonderful experience.

We arrived on Friday midday and stayed till sunday midday. We wanted to get away from home for a family weekend. Hollybrooke was the ideal place for this at the end of the stay. The kids enjoyed the cottage, horses and bike rides. My husband enjoyed the "braai" and nature, I enjoyed the peace and quite and fire place in the cottage. Although the weather was bad, the stay was wonderful. Sure to return for another great relaxing family break-away
