About Oakhurst Forge
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 two 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 two adults and maximum of three 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.
