Lydenrust Guest Farm prides itself on its reputation for its warm, friendly, hospitable staff that are always willing to go the extra mile.

                      I can just say.... what a blessing to have met the wonderful people and to stay on the farm where there are so much love and peace.Alison Botha is a wonderful hostess. Her care and support form the beginning was a blessing. I asked her to prepare a welcoming gift for me and my husband to ensure that he knows how much I love him.Alison did more that I asked and it was such a surprise to find the welcoming note, two bottles of red wine and our names written on a horse shoe with the our marriage date.For people whom love nature and farm life, this is the place to stay. You can book a horse riding...

                      A great break, truly pet friendly; complete with bedding, bowls and an entire farm to ramble around. The hosts are very attentive, and we didn't want for anything.

                      We loved our stay! Even though the weather was clod and wet, we were made to feel welcome in every way.

                      My family had a great weekend at the farm with farm animals. The highlight for us was horse riding, oh! What an experience of a lifetime. My baby was riding a pony by the name of Boo-boo, she cant stop talking about her Boo-boo. I also loved and enjoyed riding Scotty, he is such a 'gentleman'. The place is perfect for a family, the picnic place, the braai area and the play area for the kids. there are other facilities that we did not get used due to time frame and the season. We would definitely like to come back in some. Ali, thank you for your hospitality and friendliness. You made us enjoy...

                      Great place for a family breakaway. I had an experience of the best host, Alison, her grandchildren, the staff are the best. Very accomodating and great care for the guest needs, felt like a home. The animals are good company as well, enjoyed the rides. I would definetely recommend this to everyone and will look forward to go back again. The hosts always go out of their way to make the stay comfortable at odd hours as well.
