Charming farm BnB off the beaten track. Spectacular karoo landscapes, peace and quiet and charming character. A working farm and the lamb supper is a must. Well equipped cottages. Very friendly hosts make you feel right at home. Our third stay over and one we will repeat time and time again. Very reasonably priced.

A little hidden gem on a sheep farm. One of our most favorite places we have had the pleasure to stay at. Stumbled upon it when we needed a place to stay for a night, and now we can't wait to go back for a longer visit. If you love peace & quite with farm land to explore then book your next visit soon. Many outdoor activities and bring your own mountain bike to enjoy the trails. You can hike and view some game. Food is home cooking and just beyond amazing. Affordable price and the owner and his family loves sharing stories with you. Family friendly.
