Ardmore Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the scenic Champagne Valley in the central Drakensberg mountain range. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the three highest peaks in South Africa - Mafadi (highest peak at 3450m), Injisuti Dome (3410m) and the majestic Champagne Castle (3377m) which are all situated within the World Heritage site. We are surrounded by breathtaking views and fantastic opportunities for hiking and exploring the local area. We also have our won Ardmore Museum and art gallery, and the African Loom weaving centre for those who are interested in local crafts and artwork. We provide comfortable farm style accommodation, with dinner and breakfast included. We have a total of 18 units, situated either in a traditional thatch rondawel or in one of our beautiful mountain facing cottages or garden rooms. All rooms are en-suite with private fireplaces and free firewood. Wake up to a traditional farmhouse breakfast (full English) overlooking Ardmore's extensive gardens. Relax in our pub with a cold drink before joining us for a relaxed four course lantern lit dinner with complimentary wine served in our yellow wood dining room.

Ardmore is a beautiful farm in a beautiful valley. It was a delight to see newborn lambs, goats, horses and even a rescued buck. The cottage was beautiful and the spa bath a real treat! Sadly the mountain view was obscured by the neighbour's trees, but a short hill climb revealed the most spectacular view of the central berg! Food was delicious and the staff super-pleasant! This is a place to go back to!

I would just want to thank Jason and Kim for the most amazing weekend myself and my family and friends had at Ardmore! You have treated us so well and we all felt so at home! I would recommend Ardmore to anyone who wants to experience the Drakensberg in style and comfort.

Lovely stay at Ardmore, airy and spacious. Rooms were great with lovely furniture and very comfortable, also had a nice fireplace. Food was good and there was a decent variety to suit most tastes. Sheep, geese and the friendly farm dogs add to the farmish atmosphere. Best to go with an SUV as the dirt road is not kind to small vehicles.

So great to be back at Ardmore considering all the circumstances over the past year. The venue didn't disappoint - comfortable accommodation (love the new self catering kitchens in the units) and really amazing food!

So the place was beautiful, the host was very welcoming.very homely feel. The fridge n freezer was super small so had to ask main kitchen to keep our stuff. House very dark with alot of goggas but they do have nets over some of the windows . Hiking route very badly marked n you have no idea what's going on map seems simple but I could see zero route markers..terrain severely grown over so that I got stuck in 2m high black jacks and pokey plants that ripped my clothes.i sprained both my ankles trying to get out. A half hour walk turned into a 2 hour nightmare trek.
