About Chane Cheese Farm and Lodge

Nestled between Mtubatuba and St. Lucia and surrounded by lush forest Chane Cheese Farm and Lodge is found. It is a small family run cheesery only 4 km on a dirt road from the main R618 road.

Shortly after starting to produce cheese a small shop was built. Here the public were invited to taste and buy the cheeses. This soon became very popular and had to be expanded to accommodate the many guests who visited.

The lodge offers four comfortably furnished self-catering units as well as four family units.

There is a restaurant where you can have a great breakfast, lunch and dinner. Children take pleasure in the way of milking goats.

The farm offers a range of exceptional cheeses, a farm shop, Guided Horse Rides,kids play area and mini golf, a swimming pool and Cheese Tours.

The Cheese farm is open all year for farm and dairy tours and all your events.

Family friendly: Cheese Tours, trampoline, Kids Play area, touch farm, pool (bring your own towels)

Thank you it was a great stay and the kids loved it.

It´s located about 15 minutes away from St Lucia. It´s a beautiful and peaceful place. My kid loved all the animals, and the owners had many details with her, like letting her play with a puppy and with a baby goat. Service was good.Beware the restaurant has a schedule, be sure to check it and make any special requests in due time. The room was spacious and clean, with a small kitchen. We did have a few problems with the heater of the shower, as it was difficult to maintain the desired temperature, and at 4.30 am didn´t heat up. They worked on it promptly, but i suggest you check it at arrival...

Pictures are misrepresenting the place. There basically no place to have picnics, no place to tan in the sun, no open grass plains which you expect from a cheese farm. The swimming pool is very small and situated in the middle of the restaurant areas. The rooms aren't sound proof. There's no view from any of the windows - unless you fancy the owners' boat. Need to drive a 4km gravel road to locate the place which can be quite bumpy in a sedan.
