About Lord's Guest Farm

Rest in the seclusion of a rustic Eastern-Karoo farmstead nestled at the foot of a beautiful mountain range and overlooking the open Karoo plains. Lesley and Michael Lord invite you to the tranquility of their farm in the Eastern Karoo. Leave your stress at the farm gate and allow the scenic beauty, rustic farmhouse, fresh air and open spaces to fill your soul with peace.

The farm has no electricity but there is plenty hot water from wood-burning geysers. The lighting is solar powered and paraffin lamps and candles are provided. The farmhouse has a gas stove and a fridge for self-catering. The courtyard offers braai facilities and wood is supplied. The house sleeps up to 14 people and the farm is entirely private so guests have full use of the property.

We offer a challenging 4x4 route, hiking, mountain and quad bike trails amidst magnificent mountain views. Together with these activities, the mountain splash pool, birdwatching and photography offer an outdoor experience which will delight you.

      Having stayed at Lord's for four days, I would echo what the previous reviewers have said. In addition, I would comment that Michael and Lesley are the nicest people you can meet, and the kind that you would wish to have as friends living alongside you in your neighbourhood. I met Lesley only once at the end, but noticed in my several dealings with Michael that he has a sensitive, caring nature that is quite unusual. I live far away in KZN but would really love to meet them again. Stay well, both of you !

      Lovely setting and relaxed atmosphere. Appreciated the home-baked pie at our arrival! The inconsistency in cooling of the gas fridge might be the only issue - but easily overcome by filling up your cooler box with extra ice in Steynsburg. We really enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend Lord's Guest Farm.

      Muchael and Leslie are exeptional.hosts, their personal touch and extra effort puts this place in a legue of its own. Only two things for possible inprovements, we would have welcomed space in the wardrobes to put our clothes. Matress in main bedroom very hard.. But we will visit again and reccomend to friends!

      We recently stayed over at Lord's Guest Farm on our way to the coast. It was a great experience and a beautiful old farmhouse situated on a quiet and peaceful farm. Michael and Lesley were great hosts. We were spoiled with homemade apple pie on our arrival and also when we needed some extra freezing space Michael quickly sorted that for us. I would recommend Lord's Guest Farm and would definitely visit them again!Establishment Response:Hi Hanneri Thank you for your review of your stay with us; much appreciated.We trust that you had a wonderful holiday at the coast.Kind RegardsMichael & Lesley...

      Every time we stay at Lords guest house they show hospitality that is beyond. We arrive late on our way to the coast and they always provide us with a welcome that is rarely seen. The accommodation is great and love that old farm feel that we get to stay. Not only is the view and surrounds something we rarely see in JHB. All I can say is thanks guys for a great stay.
