Skeiding is a working ostrich farm, close to the N2 and halfway between Cape Town and Knysna. This makes us the ideal stopover. A friendly family farm, an education for city slickers, a place to relax and enjoy beautiful mountain views as the farm is situated on high, open rolling terrain. We, Neels and Anné-Lize, are two energetic people who love life. You need to be to run a farm, a young family, two dogs and a guesthouse in the same lifetime.
Spoil yourself and stay Bed and Breakfast or even better, have dinner. Otherwise relax next to your own fire and stay self-catering.
Enjoy home cooked country cuisine prepared by Anné-Lize and her small team of able and enthusiastic assistants, Allen and Aletta. Neels is the meat chef on the open fire, unless farm work calls him away. A three course menu is served every evening at the family dining table. Please let us know of any dietary requirements for the best culinary experience. Also let us know if you are celebrating a birthday or any special occasion that you would like us to cater for.
We have four rooms and four cottages that have all you need to feel pampered. There is a honesty bar, tea and coffee making facilities, en-suite bathrooms with strong showers, heater, ceiling fan, electric blankets, ostrich leather slippers and gown, hair dryers and good South African port on the house, to enjoy on the patio as a sundowner. The rooms and cottages are named after plants, animals and birds commonly found in our area, which is a real birders paradise.
One of the highlights of your stay will be the farm tour with Neels. A hands-on experience every morning at 07:30. Feeding the ostriches, watching the working dogs, a Border Collie and Australian Kelpie, work with the sheep, ostriches or Nguni cattle. We do believe that we can really add value to your life, staying with us.
