About Meijer's Rust Guest Farm

Meijer's Rust Guest Farm is a working farm which offers a wide variety of accommodation options within the heart of the stunning Meiringspoort, just outside the beautiful village of De Rust.

Meijer's Rust offers guests a choice of staying in the lovely Stone House, a Chalet, the Milk Barn or the Campground in the mountains. The romantic Stone House is located on a plateau and is ideal for two people. The house is furnished with a comfortable double bed and has an outside bathroom that consists of a bath and shower. The unit is equipped with a gas fridge and a stove, as well as a built-in braai area. The house is also a good starting point for the farm’s wonderful hiking trails.

The open-plan Chalets are furnished with comfortable queen-size beds and have sleeper couches for two children. Extra bedding is available and each en-suite bathroom consists of a bath only. The units are air-conditioned and each has a kitchenette equipped with a stove, microwave, fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The air-conditioned Milk Barn is located near a Chalet, but offers privacy. The cottage has two bedrooms that are furnished with a double bed and bunk bed for children. The bathroom is shared between the rooms and consists of a shower only. The kitchenette is equipped with a stove, microwave, fridge and tea and coffee-making facilities.

The Campground is located high in the Swartberg Mountains and offers spectacular views over the Kamanassie and Outeniqua mountains. Ablution facilities with hot water and braai facilities are provided, but please note that the Campground can only be accessed by 4x4 vehicle or motorcycles.

Meijer's Rust offers lovely hiking trails that take you to the top of the Swartberg Mountain and can lead to natural waterfalls and pools, as well as rare San rock art. Really fit guests can enjoy mountain bike trails with an elevation level of 500 m. Birders will love the area as over 180 species have been recorded on the farm and a wide variety of plants can be seen.

Family friendly: We are a working Cattle farm with Horses & Eland, endless space for children to run and have adventures, dams to swim, hiking trails, for the very adventurous you can find the waterfall and swim in the icy cold mountain water.

Romantic: The Stone Cottage has been the venue for many a romantic moment, proposals to weddings have taken place at this magical spot on the mountain overlooking the beautiful fields, where you are secluded and can be one with nature

                                      The 4 chalets are 2 buildings with separating walls between 2 chalets, but we did not have neighbors and had a lovely quiet stay in the spacious unit. The walk on the road to the stone cottage in the mountain was a bonus which we really enjoyed and would love to come back for with enough time to explore in more detail.

                                      We loved the Stone Cottage! It was everything and more that we were hoping for! Barry and Vivienne were wonderful. Beautiful surrounds with great walking trails. Enjoyed the cattle , a heard of 34 Eland and the visiting Baboons that did not bother us! Would go back any time!

                                      We booked for 4 adults and 2 children and was asked if the kids would sleep on stretchers. We agreed, but upon arriving found a double bed and blankets on a corner unit couch. We had to basically beg the staff to make the"beds". There was also no wifi as advertised and also no cellphone reception. The undercover parking could not be used as it would block any other guests to drive through. A notice stuck on the wall says to not drink the water, but no drinking water is provided. The staff is Meijers Rust biggest downfall. We were not shown the room or how to get there. We were pointed in the...
