No noise, relaxing environment.

I loved the peace and quiet of the place. It's a great break away from home. We've never experience a farm stay before and the picking of the fruit was the ultimate highlight. We will definitely be visiting again and will recommend it to everyone. Just two things that we needs that wasn't there was a bigger bowl for pancake mix and a blind at the aluminium doors but overall we love the place

My partner and I loved the isolation of the cabin, it was so quiet and secluded and peaceful. While water levels are low, we still managed to paddle across the dam in skis (provided). We braaied both nights, drank rum and played chess. Perfect break from the business of life.
