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.

We had the most relaxing time at Penwarn Farm. A place you can really unwind and kids can just be kids, fishing, hiking, rock art trails, playing in the mud and just all in all good quality family time. The staff are so helpful, a special thanks to Bapsi, he is so accommodating in every way and just goes that extra mile. Penwarn Farm is a piece of heaven on earth for sure. We will be back :).

We had a group of 15 who stayed at Penwarn Manor. The house was so spacious and comfortable with a beautiful outlook onto the dam. There was a big living space and kitchen which was more than adequate for the rainy day. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you need to self cater and good quality cutlery and crockery etc.All bedrooms en suite which is great and two of the bedrooms have lovely picture windows looking onto the dam, very special. The staff were so friendly and obliging. It was a wonderful place to gather and in the most beautiful settling. A perfect place for a big group! We loved the fire pit and our bonfire each night and the two fire places in the living area for the cold day. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

A fantastic weekend away with great trout fishing. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. This is a underrated weekend away that you won't regret. Definitely value for money. One of the more beautiful farms that I have seen in a while.

Absolute incredible getaway. The setting, cleanliness & helpfulness of the staff was excellent. We were also fortunate enough to experience snowfall over the weekend that we were there, which made our stay at Penwarn that more memorable. Keep up the excellent work!
