An Unforgettable Farm Lodge Experience Join us at Penwarn Farm, located in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, for a stunning farm lodge escape. Rustic yet modern, Penwarn Farm Lodge can be found just 25km from the quaint, little town of Underberg in South Africa. As you drive down the Khyber Pass, you’ll be greeted with the all the beauty that Penwarn has to offer. The farm lodge lies in an exquisite valley surrounded by lakes, and borders Highlands Farm which was established in 1886. Over 3400 hectares of land is farmed by the fifth generation of Nicholson’s, raising cattle and sheep and planting maize and potatoes for the market. Sharing the grasslands are zebra, hartebeest and blesbok. Birdlife is of abundance and the cranes and wild geese can be spotted from the comfort of your room. Penwarn truly is an animal enthusiast’s paradise! The ambience of the farm is relaxed, rustic, and modern, and is perfect for a variety of occasions including weddings, conferences, family adventures and romantic getaways. Penwarn Farm Lodge has its own chapel, which is situated near the beautiful lake overlooking the Drakensberg. Within the venue, we also have the famous Penwarn Bar which offers guest a thirst-quenching drink and a place for a bit of banter. We look forward to welcoming you to Penwarn Farm Lodge and providing you with an amazing farm holiday experience.

Great venue for a relaxing weekend. Very nice A- frame chalets in a natural setting. Very clean and comfortable chalet with everything you need for a good stay. The only thing we can complain about was the bed which was quite hard and uncomfortable to sleep on.

We haven’t been on holiday in 2 years and this getaway was exactly what we needed. The walks to the waterfall and rocks, braaiing marshmallows on the fire will stay with us forever. Thank you Kate, Babsie and Zandile for looking after us.

I really enjoyed my stay. The place is nice and quiet and it is the value for money. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly and easy to communicate with. I am really considering coming back with my friends as soon as the pandemic is over because I still want to experience riding a horse and swimming in the Rocky pool

An ideal venue for a family holiday. So much to do - hiking, fishing (trout & bass), canoeing, birding (amazing sightings ) , jogging & cycling in amazing surroundings and much much more. We did not switch on our TV once and the grandkids did not even miss it! Our lodge was overlooking the vast waterways & the mountains. Spacious rooms & spotless bathrooms and comfie beds. Our hosts Kate, Toy and Ryan made sure all our needs were met . Many thanks all.

My family and I had the most amazing time at Penwarn. The farm is SERIOUSLY BEAUTIFUL with loads to do if you aren’t sitting back and enjoying the view and amazing bird life. Our hosts Katie and Ryan were very friendly and helpful. The rock paintings only visible by kayak was a highlight as well as the rock pool. Last point, the bed linen was crisp, white and very comfortable. We look forward to going back next year, and the next, and the next...
