We enjoyed our stay at Old Mill Drift Guest Farm very much. Beautiful scenes, friendly horses and dogs and the call of the eagles greet you every morning when you wake up. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We explored the farm from all different angles, from walking on the road next to the river and exploring the different trails. Exploring the view from the escarpment was a highlight, because you can see for miles down the valleys. For nature photographers, this is a must.

A great place to get away from work and wake up every morning to wonderful views of the mountains. Our daily 30km drives into Clarens were scenic and really gave the feel of being in the mountains. Friendly cleaning staff and comfortable furnishings helped make our stay a pleasant one. We had a great time and we all wish we could have stayed a few more days. We will definitely be back soon.

I cannot emphasize enough on the importance of visiting this farm retreat. Yvonne and her farm is the biggest hidden gem nestled between the mountains of South Africa and Lesotho. Add a 360 degree of breathtaking scenery, the most amazing dogs in this world, a lot of horses and the feeling of home and you start painting the masterpiece which is Old Mill Drift. This farm is for any traveling soul. For the lazy escape artist, there is a comfortable hammock in which you can sink into all day, beautiful cottages, enough wood to set the mood and (if you're lucky) some very theatrical thunder storms...
