Beautiful setting. Bathrooms clean. Got lost a few times on farm, but they sent 2 guys in bukkie to lead us to campsite. They are very helpful, smiling and cheerful. Owner, Susan & son Henry so ready to help and very pleasant to talk to. Spa beautifully set out. Pity,, due to being stronger a touch cool. Folk with low car might also find middelmannitjie a bit high. Hope to go back again. Martin & Jenny.

This is a hidden gem - rustic and charming. Deep on the farm. One should spend a week here and just relax...

Would recommend taking the N6 instead of R701 when coming from the north, otherwise you will drive on an awfully long dirt road to get there. The location itself also has some dirt roads so make sure your car has some ground clearance.The rooms are cosy, and the rock pool is nice to visit. Note that the pool has a natural sulphur smell, but it is not overwhelming.
