                      We really enjoyed this opportunity to relax in our private suite while experiencing personal contact and interaction with our gracious hosts. Especially enjoyed the walks to the Caledon River. What a lovely weekend!

                      Dit was heerlik om die stilte van die Vrystaat te kon geniet, te stap en heerlik te kon braai, baie dankie

                      We had a pleasant long weekend away with our kids. It was a nice get together and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The accommodation was great, we had everything we needed and the owners were friendly people. We felt welcome and would definitely stay there again.

                      We enjoy the comfortable stay and well managed guest farm.Thank goodness for no tv! The sheltered place to braai on the stoep was a bonus as well as the prompt hot water in the taps! Thanks Bob, we enjoyed your place with all the well kept roads and paths to ride and walk on.
