What a wonderful place. Perhaps a secret gem that more people should know about. Ali the owners is a wonderful kind person who loves animals and life, made us feel so welcome. Thanks The house was well catered and peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. The surrounding are nature at it best. The horses and the trail out ride was great my son Dylan enjoyed every minute. We will be back ,thanks for making us feel like family. This is an ideal place to relax and enjoy farm life or country life ,peacefully. Thanks Dave and Bella and Dylan
Alison is a great hostess. She catered to our every need and just fell short of changing the weather for us. My partner and I with our two Cocker spaniels were hosted by four tortoises in our pet friendly unit. Occasionally, Two Friesland Oxen would come and check up on us where we got to host them with some veggies. Speedy & Gonzalez (the two younger tortoises), moving around just enough to keep the doggos curious. With all the basic amenities, beautiful scenery and country lifestyle living, the guest farm is the perfect location for respite from the perverbial rat race. No distractions from police sirens, noisy neighbours or loud TVs, there was ample board games to play overlooking the most amazing mountain views.
We are so greatfull for founding this lovely place. Kids had a blast and mommy and daddy could relax. Thanks to our lovely host and her husband we can recommend this to anyone that loves the outdoors.
We stayed at Lydenrust for 1 night on our trip to the dam. We had a lovely cabin which had everything we needed. It was cold at night, but a beautiful spot to be at peace with nature. Lots of adorable sheep, goats and horses and even a tortoise in the garden. We felt very welcome and enjoyed the stunning views.
Fantastic weekend break within easy reach of Johannesburg. The last part of the road has quite a few potholes but you just need to drive carefully...you don't need a 4x4. We stayed in Brumby House..extremely well equipped. Alison is a great hostess..a unique individual! She is phenomenal with all her animals, not only the horses, and almost every one of them has a story to share! The rides are fantastic and can be tailored to suit each persons level. Our whole family(even my husband who is not a rider), can't wait to get back. Most relaxing thing I have done all year. Thank you Alison!
