About Oakhurst Forge

 Sleeps 5
Check-in: 2:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM

Oakhurst is one of the original large properties of the Garden Route. Situated in the Wilderness district, near George. It lies on the undulating plateau between the indigenous forests of the Outeniqua Mountains and the steep forest gorges sloping down to the Wilderness "lake district".

The farm covers the area of 640 hectares, 200 hectares of which is forest and fynbos. Five years ago, Jake and Claire decided to restore the Old House on Oakhurst in which they live today. The Old house had lain derelict for decades. Today it had been preserved to its original state. Here they live with their three daughters. In the bottom of the garden is the beautiful stone building in the 1800's, it was very dated, dilapidated and tired. Two years ago, Jake decided to restore the Forge and turn it into a very unique, comfortable and beautiful farm cottage. Built out of rock and huge yellowwood beams, the cottage sleeps four adults and maximum of two children comfortably. It enjoys a quiet setting overlooking the most beautiful forests and fields grazed by herds of jersey dairy cows and Aberdeen Angus beef cattle.

We stayed at Oakhurst for three nights in December 2014. Clare and Jake were wonderful hosts - we were so impressed that a bowl of freshly laid eggs and a bottle of farm milk was delivered to our door shortly after we arrived. The cottage is quaint and comfortable. However, for us, the best was having coffee and rusks on the deck, with the early morning sun and the abundance of birds in the fore... Read more

What a lovely little cottage. The indoor/outdoor living is great in summer, but I wondered if it might be a little cold in winter. Claire was very welcoming and we would definitely consider returning for a slightly longer stay. There were one or two small details overlooked - for example there was no soap in the bathroom, but nothing that would prevent me recommending this idyllic spot.
