We had a most wonderful long weekend stay at Vrisch Gewagt. The accommodation is excellent and the farm is really beautiful. The owners and manager are extremely accommodating and friendly and they made sure that our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Will definitely visit again soon!

After 12 hours on the road, it is the perfect overnight (and longer) stopover. The stillness and beauty of the farm is so welcoming. The farm is well managed by Chantelle who is always available for the smallest request. The cottages are very tastefully decorated and are well stocked for self catering. Doggy heaven too!

This place is absolutely perfect. The pool the dams, the view ,the cottage . We loved every single corner. We spent 3 days at this gorgeuos farm and the manager Chantelle made us feel at home. The braai and the fireplace pack with wood and ready for us to use is just an example of how they pay attention to the needs and the comfort of their clients . More their products ( oil, olives and meat) are really really good. The owner Lara and Chantelle the manager are really wonderful people.. we can' t wait to visit them again and spend another long weekend here. This place is good for your heart and your soul.

I have to tell you that I cannot thank you enough for convincing us to stay for 2 nights on the farm! And it still wasn’t enough! We were so busy we didn’t actually have time to unwind there BUT we will be planning a future trip there and STAY on the farm to enjoy the walks and the surrounds because WOW it is GORGEOUS!

Chantelle was amazing and the Sheep, Cows, Springbok and Big Doggy came to visit us too!! 😊 We walked to the stunning pool and can only image having a swim on a hot summers day in there!

The Lamb Chops were out of this world as was the Milk from Andi! And it was so divine to enjoy your Olive Oil, Olives and Wine too!!

We saw the Moon Rising over the mountains on the Tuesday night it was soooo Beautiful!

The room was well thought out, clean and had absolutely everything you could want or need.

The Bath Ducks were too cute and the attention to detail is exceptional!

It was absolutely perfect and a magical place indeed and we have left a bit of our Soul there! I definitely want to be marooned there for a week in the future with a good book to fully unwind…

We had a family big birthday weekend at the Vrisch Gewagt Farm 30k outside Prince Albert There is a variety of accommodation and the farmhouse and cottage we occupied were excellent. Spacious and very well equipped on a working farm. Chantelle our host was very attentive and efficient with a great personality. In fact all the staff were very good and we even had a go at milking the cows.
If you want a quiet chilled weekend in the Karoo in top quality accommodation this is the place.

The rugged beauty of the Karoo and great accommodation made this one of our more memorable and special holidays. Lots to do keeping three generations entertained and happy. Also a treat to the nearby Swartberg Pass covered in snow and visit to the quaint town of Prince Albert. We are already considering our next visit to beautiful Vrisch Gewagt.

It is the second time we stayed at Frisch Gewaght. One time at Wintertime and now in Summer. The clean and well stocked cottages, a roster, wood, karoo lamb tjops ordered before our arrival and a full moon, created a perfect night of the stars moment in the beautiful to remember.

Absolute bliss! The quiet calm of the Karoo is Vrisch Gewagt. Beautiful accommodation, amazing service from Chantelle & team, long walks in a peaceful Karoo paradise & cosy fires at night. Could not ask for more. Highly recommended if the busy buzz of city life is getting to you.

We have found a place we absolutely want to visit again.

We love the layout, the quiet, the natural and built beauty, and the whole offering! We drove around as much of the farm as we could, in between the odd walk, to see and appreciate as much as we could of the property over our 2-night stay. Even though we didn't use it owing to the weather, the swimming pool and decks on each dam are wonderful.

We appreciated the braai being set up and ready for us - and the fantastic fresh food to go with it. (Great to be able to order from farm stocks.) Thanks too, for the olive oil, olives and red wine on arrival. And the peaches we picked were incredible! It really was a delicious experience all round.
