                  We had a lovely stay at the Rondavel near the back of the property. The Doornberg Farm is situated quite far down a dirt road and you pass through the actual farm before reaching the guest houses. It’s so soothing to watch the chickens and ducks near the main house and I definitely could have spent more time there. One thing that could be improved is the cleanliness of the Rondavel; we found a large spider in a web (that we put outside) and the refrigerator was a little dirty.

                  The road from Nieu Bethesda to the farm is spectacular. Stepping onto the old farm house was a blast from the past. Wooden floors, big rooms and high ceilings. We experienced countryside hospitality. Especially from Cindy the Labrador and Sam the Dachshund. Open spaces and beautiful trees.
