It is a quiet, peaceful farm thats not too far from Grahamstown. However it was really cold in our room at night and there was no heating. Some extra blankets were provided, but the gaps between the door frames and the walls let in the cold air. I think filling in those gaps would improve the insulation and make it more comfortable in winter. I am sure it must be better in summer.

We had a really nice stay. The Silo room was exactly as described and everyone was helpful. It was dark coming in off the highway so I recommend arriving during the daylight hours.
