We enjoyed every minute of our stay on this family farm. There are fishing ponds, ostriches, hiking trails, pony and bunny play park, a river, etc. Situated outside Oudshoorn and almost at the foot of the Swartberge. This made for a beautiful view and relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant has amazing food. Owners and staff were very friendly and added to the farming experince. Will stay here every time we visit the area.

Not good!! On arrival we found a very dark double bedroom allocated to us which was not self catering as requested. The bathroom towels were dirty and stained and needed replacing which the management did on request. The linen was certainly not up to standard although clean. The Breakfast was very mediocre for the standard that we are used to . My honest opinion is that it needs capital put back into a very old establishment to upgrade it to more modern standards

A brilliant place to stay. The old Mill Restaurant was lovely, food and service was 1st class. The hosts were very friendly & welcoming. Fully recommend.

Very good facilities; our room was excellent with everything we could have wished for and a beautiful view of the Karoo mountains. Breakfast in the morning was superb! The grounds were lovely with a nice pool area and deck restaurant with antelope wandering around below. Only complaint is that the air-con and ceiling fan in our room were both so loud it was difficult to sleep. Overall a fantastic stay with great staff. Highly recommend.

Rust en Vrede is a lovely little waterfall that runs 365 days a year – even though it is found in the Klein Karoo. During the summer many people enjoy a picnic or braai under the trees at the entrance followed by a walk and a swim at this gorgeous...
