Travellers' Choice
A forgotten land found far away from the big city lights, where we could connect back to the peace of nature. The Farmstead is ensconced between the mountains and water of Franschhoek. A carefully curated cultivation of self-catering child friendly lux-cottages. Farm stay luxury with six cottages; two four bedroom cottages and four two bedroom cottages. All rooms with their own bathrooms and each cottage with an outside bathroom. Secure, quiet and peaceful with mountain and farm views to come back to nature while exploring the winelands. Recently added a riverside deck for sunsets and picnics by the river.

The Farmstead is a stunning venue and was just what we needed to get a break from everything. We loved having the chickens run around and the river deck really was outstanding. Just a beautiful few days.

The entire stay was amazing and we can only recommend to book this place. Very Idyllic, clean, safe and beautiful. Yoga is offered at the Yoga room and there are so many places on the farm one can enjoy. Service and communication was excellent.

Fabulous, remote, rustic, modern and quirky. We loved everything from the arrival (driving through a river) to the chickens roaming around the grounds. The decor is great, the outdoor bathrooms were unique and fun, yet still private and clean. The views are amazing. The arrival was a little unconventional and lacked personal service, however it worked with the theme of the place and didn’t affect our experience. Would 100% recommend. (It is 15mins outside the town though, uber was super easy mostly)

The rooms were decorated so well and the views were lovely. The bed were comfortable. The river side area was tranquil! The yoga studio and instructor were great. We would definitely come back and stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Farmstead. The surroundings are beautiful and the amenities are fantastic, making for a fun-filled family getaway. In particular we enjoyed sundowners and a dip at the river. The location makes exploring Franschhoek very accessible. Visiting in summer meant that the absence of fans in the two smaller rooms (of the 4 bedroom unit) made for some uncomfortable evenings.

What a wonderful experience. From the freshly baked bread at arrival to the beautiful fine details through the unit. Everything is clean and fresh. What a added bonus to have 4 bathrooms for 8 people, two indoors and two outside! The fynbos toiletries give it a unique experience. The view of the mountains is stunning and gardens well maintained.

Me and my husband came from Israel to celebrate our engagement with my family and it was the perfect place. The simple accurate design of the place and the facilities were perfect. The rooms were very comfortable and the whole setting was just so beautiful. Will definitely recommend.

We loved everything about The Farmstead. It is beautifully designed, the cottages have everything one could want for a weekend away. It is also in a wonderful location - so easy to pop into Franschhoek but still get the benefit of staying on a farm.
