Lovely to be able to walk around the farm and enjoy the view and fresh air. Cottage is well equipped, neat and clean. We enjoyed a good night's sleep and the aircon was most welcome on a hot Karoo day!

Our stay at Melrose Guest farm was perfect. The accommodation itself was perfect - clean and the cottage had everything in one might need for self-catering. The setting of the cottage was perfect - saw 2 kudu cows coming into the land to feast on the green pastures. The farm is just far enough from town but near enough to nip into town. It was perfect....

Our family stayed 2 nights at Melrose Guest Farm. Johan and Hanfi went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The farm is beautiful - you can see their passion and attention to detail everywhere. Our 'city kids' enjoyed walking over to see all the farm animals. Lovely stay! Will definately visit again!
