Peaceful, quiet views of the farm while catching the morning sun, and of the local mountains from the dining room. Our hostess put herself out to cater for our needs and meals, and the food was excellent home cooking. Our bathrooms had all the mod cons, while the house and furniture is comfortably antique. Highly recommended stay on a working farm 14km from Maclear.
Fairbairn was lovely! The rooms are huge, the showers hot and modern, the beds firm and comfortable and there were battery charged lights all over the house to accommodate load shedding. We arrived in the evening cold and exhausted from cycling all day. Linky arrived with an amazing supper, and was so friendly and caring. Thanks very much - i hope to visit again.
I had an excellent and very comfortable overnight stay at Fairbarn Guest Farm, whilst on a trip from the Natal North Coast to my home in the Little Karoo. It was such a beautiful and tranquil setting that I wish I could have stayed longer. Linky was a wonderful host. Hopefully I will be able to return to Fairbairn in the future. I replay recommend spending there.
Linky is the perfect host. Very accommodating and the rooms provided was lovely. The farm is beautiful and the views absolutely amazing! I am traveling with my two German Shepherds and they enjoyed the walks. The cottage itself is not fenced, but there is the usual farm fencing around the much larger area where the cottages are situated. The dogs loved a quick morning walk on the farm roads. For us it was just a stop over, but I think it will be a lovely stay to base from if you want to do the surrounding passes.
Fairbairn is in a great location well clear of Maclear and in lovely farmland. It 8is well worth doing the 14ks from Maclear to get there. We stayed in the main house which was great. Very comfortable and peaceful. Linky could not have made us more welcome. We had pre-ordered dinner from here and this was lovely home cooked food. The chocolate Malva pudding was so good that I asked Linky for the recipe. Breakfast was also excellent. I have no doubt we will return and hopefully stay more than one night. If you are planning a trip on the newly resurfaced R56, which we would recommend, then Fairbairn is a great stopover.
The directions were easy to follow and once we arrived we were very warmly welcomed. We felt very comfortable, like home away from home. All needs were met and playing the piano added to the fun. The views and beautiful grounds enhanced the serenity of Fairbairn Guest Farm.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Fairbairn Guest Farm. The accommodation was perfect. To sit on the porch and watch the afternoon shower was the perfect was to end a long day of driving. Rooms were well designed and the pillows were spot on. Not to mention the home cooked supper which was a delight. Thank you
great spot to stay. beautiful walks great food great hospitality welcoming of dogs interesting birds and landscapes very easy to find convenient when doing a road trip very helpful nothing was a problem
Ebby and Linky were incredibly good to us and we loved this spot - we shall be back. The meal was superb and the hospitality amazing. Thank you so much for your kindness in accommodating all 7 of our family and our labrador.
We had a great farm stay at Fairbarn Guest Farm. Our kids loved the open space and the abundance of adventures available. The accommodation is located in a beautiful setting with friendly hosts. Kitchen/dining is shared facilities - we had a small fridge, kettle and microwave available in our unit.
