About Franshoek Farm and Polo School
The Franshoek Farm and Polo School is host to a beautiful sandstone cottage stratigically positioned on the edge of the hillside overlooking the polo field in this picturesque valley.
The Stables is a converted stable with two bedrooms and a kitchen for self-catering. Opposite the cottage is a superb braai area with firewood. The Salt Room is an extra out building, located behind the Stables, which can accommodate and extra single or older children joining the group. The complex is rented as a unit.
The farm has natural mountain dams where guests can swim or just relax and enjoy some sun. Excellent polo tuition, or mountain horse rides can be arranged during your stay. The 1 500 hectares boast an abundance of flora, fauna and wild animals for guests to enjoy. There are plenty of great places to hike, and or walk.
Family friendly: We have a herd of 50 thoroughbred polo ponies and offer horse rides upon arrangement. There is a cave and waterfall on the farm, and many lovely walking trails through the mountains.
