We booked this farm stay in March after much consultation with the manager Daan and looking at current reviews. It seemed perfect to have some downtime and do safari. I contacted the property before arrival about meals etc and was responded to but not by Daan. Thought nothing of it dinner was confirmed for arrival. We drove from Storms River so arrived early evening. Drove in but thought it must be wrong place as very run down long grass, loose dogs barking and no sign of life. Then a woman appeared who showed us rooms. The first was creepy so she showed us others all the doors were open and available! She then said we hadn’t booked dinner and we couldn’t have as she had nothing to cook? With a restaurant? Eventually she agreed to get some food and give us dinner. At that point we wanted to leave but we were miles from anywhere, in the bush, and it was dark. We were then told the owners had returned to Netherlands and Daan had left. Dinner was actually good. Unlike sleep which wasn’t forthcoming and I was bitten badly. There was a problem with hot water. We had breakfast then told the chef we were leaving. We had prepaid of course through a large company but struggling now to get a refund. The whole experience was awful and has cost us dearly to find alternative accommodation at short notice.

For a quiet relaxing break in tranquil surroundings Seven Fountains farm about a 20 minutes drive from Grahamstown is ideal. The young Dutch host, Daan is charming and attentive. The food served is delicious with the coffee being as good as available in the Netherlands. We will certainly be back!

What a find! A piece of history that has been lovingly restored. Excellent service and absolutely delicious gourmet dinner. Surrounded by game reserves and peach farms, particularly enjoyable to lie in one of their hammocks and relax in nature, swim in the heated pool Or go for a walk. Very hospitable manger, attention to detail is good. Highly recommend

We have spent 6 nights at Seven Fountains Farm. Very quiet and welcoming atmosphere. We stayed in the self catering house accommodating up to 6 people, lots of space and comfortable. Old building originally dated from 1717 renovated recently with taste. The chef cooks nice breakfast and delicious dinners. The staff treats you as a vip. Nice common areas in the nature- pool, bird viewing deck, hammocks, boma and path around the property. Really a great stay !! Easy to drive to Addo elephant park, Kenton on sea, Grahamstown and Port Alfred.

Where do I start, the hospitality was amazing! This place is a gem, pity it’s “hidden” away. Not even 5 minutes away from game farms and the chef is absolutely amazing at her job! We felt like VIP guests the whole time we were there. Nothing was ever a problem.

What a gem! Farmstay with a gourmet restaurant. Win win in my book. Great for some r&r. Wonderful vibe throughout the premisses. We (7 people) stayed in different 'units'. The chef is amazing and so was the warm welcome. It's a slice of paradise.
