About Marshall Farm
Marshall Farm is a traditional thatch family-friendly farmhouse set in a magical place that nurtures mind, body and soul. It’s nestled along the Duiwenshok River; one of the Overberg’s best kept secrets, in the wildly beautiful and charming hamlet of Vermaaklikheid.
The farmhouse is home from home; private, comfortable, open-plan and offers contemporary luxuries. The outdoor patio area flows from the living and main bedroom onto a rolling lawn down to the river. An outdoor lounge and BBQ is the perfect setting for family and friends to gather after the day’s activities. One of the highlights of Marshall Farm is the enchanting outdoor lounge and jetty built right on the river. This special place is a perfect retreat for lazy afternoons and sundowners or early evenings spent with a crackling fire overlooking the river.
The unspoilt river meanders through this pristine valley and is sublime for swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing and exploring; or head for the surrounding hills on the many nature walks, mountain bike trails and a spot of bird-watching.
Minimum stays: Easter - 4 nights; Long weekends - 3 nights.
