About Korfskop Self-catering Farmhouse

Experience the peace and tranquility of the Eastern Free State. Korfskop is only three hours' drive from Gauteng, Bloemfontein and Durban on the N5 between Kestell and Harrismith.

The old sandstone house with its beautiful Oregon pine floors was built in 1868 and has four bedrooms that sleep up to 12 people on either single or queen-size beds. The 2.5 bathrooms are shared between the rooms. Linen and towels are provided, as well as electric blankets and hot-water bottles. A fully equipped, self-catering, farm-style kitchen with its original Oregon pine furniture add to the nostalgia of yesteryear. A large spacious lounge, with anthracite stove and a sunny living room can be enjoyed, especially in winter. The lounge has a TV and DStv, but guests have to bring their own smartcard. Braai facilities and servicing is available by arrangement and at an additional fee.

Huge sandstone boulders and indigenous umbrella trees add to the beauty of this area. Water is provided by fresh water springs and a borehole. Enjoy a family outing and view and pet the farm animals or have a swim in the dam on warm summer days. Nearby places of interest include The Golden Gate National Park, Clarens, the Sterkfontein dam, Jagers Rust Hydro Electrical Scheme and the Basotho Cultural Village.

Excellent for a break away. Will definitely recommend it to other.

What a beautiful location! We enjoyed the ambience of the old farmhouse. Everything was there that we needed for our stay. Great hospitality from Ronel, who even picked up something that one of our party had forgotten in Harrismith. A great mountain to explore and find your way up in the 'backyard' if hiking is of interest. We hope to return another time.

Spacious, well kept house in tranquil surroundings, just what we needed.

Dis 'n heerlike plek as jy net wil rus. Jy het alles wat jy nodig het, sonder Gauteng se gejaag.

Wow...a place full of tranquility, simplicity and fundamental convenience. We were really reminded of the importance of taking time off the hustle and bustle of City life. Our brief stay at Krofskop Farmhouse was peaceful, re-energising and fulfilling. Our expectations we exceeded; so much so we have decided to go back for a longer period sometime in April.
