About Roodepoort Farm Self Catering

Under angry cumulus clouds and ancient sandstone cliffs, we rear fine Angus Cattle, grow beans, soya and maize on Roodepoort Farm. It is here where we have built, restored & renovated two warm and glad cottages flanking the stately centarian farmhouse. Every Friday night there's a steady cloud of dust that leads to Roodepoort Farm from the metropolis. Coolers in the back, and exited kids on the backseat and eager folks wanting to kindle friendships and relationships. You can have a lot of fun in a Jozi minute, but there's some things you can't do inside those city limits.
And that is what we bring to you.
You can come as you are as there ain't no dress code, just some rural rules that you need to know:
Don't mess with the bull as he can get real mean.
Don't forget to shut the gate.
Stay out of the beans.
Don’t step in it.
Respect all things great and small.
Do not play with fire.
Treasure the memories

Roodepoort Farm consists of three rustic yet comfortable self-catering units situated on 1400 acres of natural land in the picturesque Clarens district. It is the ideal getaway from the fast pace of the city and is great for relaxing and enjoying Eastern Free State nature right on your doorstep.

The units cater for different accommodation needs, with Mila’s Place having three bedrooms, Lexi’s Quirky Cottage having one bedroom and Lara’s Homestead having five bedrooms. Each unit is well-equipped and has BBQ facilities. The Farm also offers guests secure parking.

Roodepoort Farm compromises of bird-watching, cycling routes, picnicking or simply relaxing outdoors with a good book while soaking up nature.

                          This cottage had an exquisite view! Very neat and spacious place with awesome rustic decor. Very secure with lovely hiking trails. All downside was that the cottage did not have blinds or tinted windows which made it uncomfortable as other guests could see you while you wanted to use the bathroom or enjoy the view from the bath.Otherwise an amazing cottage with an amazing view and very friendly staff (Austin) that was well organised. Would definitely make a booking again! Thank you.

                          I had a great time for some peace and quite and to just reflect.This is just a great place for that.

                          We liked a lot of the facilities. Nothing was missing from what was indicated would be there. However, this is not a place to reserve if there's rain in the forecast. The 10k of dirt road that leads to the farm is not nice when wet. And when it rains, rivulets of water run through the long house to pool inside the front wall.

                          The peace and quietness away from the business of the city. The tin tin trailer was beautiful and comfortable more than what I expected looking at it from the outside. I would recommend visitors to use a vehicle with a high ground clearance or a 4x4.

                          What a surprise was our first time visit to Roodepoort guest farm, to be in such a beautiful environment, the grazing cattle and sheep was an experience! We will definitely return to the Tintin trailer
