Fairbairn Guest Farm is a hidden gem of the Eastern Cape. The setting is absolutely magnificent and Linky, the host, could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The breakfasts that we enjoyed every morning were delicious. I will definitely stay at Fairbairn again the next time I am in the area.

Our hostess was caring and efficient. The farm is lovely - we managed to spot some Blue Cranes and two Crested cranes. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast in the dining area with a lovely open fire burning. Our room was quite small but well-equipped.

We traveled from Port Alfred to Durban with our 2 furry kids and we found this oasis. We were welcomed by a friendly and very helpful host. Our furries were welcomed and there was a fire waiting for us to add to the welcoming atmosfere. The accomodation was clean and very comfortable. The only problems we experienced were Internet connection and the condition of the dirt road but they were overshadowed by the positive experience. Thank you very much!!!!!!

Fantastic hosts Linkey and Jan, fantastic food, fantastic accommodation. A real gem of a place. Looking forward to returning and exploring the farm and area more than we did this time. Nothing was to much bother for them. Stay here you won’t regret it.

Outstanding, quaint old farmhouse fully restored and immaculate. All facilities in house top notch. Location was stunning and the beauty of the surroundings spectacular. Sorry we only stayed one night as the tranquility was endearing and could/should have stayed much longer. Road to the location was a bit challenging but well worth the effort. Meals provided the host were delicious. Really felt at home immediately we arrived. Linky is to be commended as a superb host. Thank you.
