This was just the perfect distance and time away from the hustle and bustle of Jozi. In just under 3 hours we arrived, were welcome by lovely young Helena who showed us to our cabin, and we soon settled in.The stables and the friendly horses that were preparing to bed had the perfect aroma.Icing on the cake was my 22 month old daughter going on 2 maiden pony rides, which she thoroughly enjoyed.Driving from Joburg, I'd highly recommend the Machadodorp/Lydenrust route as the Mashishini/Lydenrust route is terrible (something out of control of the establishment unfortunately).We will be back next...

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...
