Awesome hosts & food. Unfortunately not much to do if weather is bad. Unfortunately we had the porcupine room which had no view of the farm and was freezing cold because it was raining while we were there. Also had a problem with cellphone reception...More

About
Description
Skeiding is one of those places that you fall in love with for no reason ... maybe it's the absolute peace and tranquillity or the panoramic views of the Langeberg mountains or the bright stars at night or More the mouth watering food or the goodness of being close to nature ... that makes you want to come back. Situated on high, open, rolling terrain you experience the feeling of freedom and being kind of alone with no neighbour in sight. Skeiding is a working grain, sheep, ostrich and Nguni farm … close to the N2 and halfway (250 km) between Cape Town and Knysna. This makes us the ideal stopover. A friendly family farm, an education for city slickers, a place to relax and enjoy panoramic mountain views as the farm is situated on high, open rolling terrain. We Neels and Anné-Lize is two energetic people who love life …you need to be to run a farm, a young family (Anné and Pieter), two dogs (Dixie and Jessie), a cat (Tierkat) and a guesthouse in the same lifetime.Spoil yourself and stay Bed & Breakfast or even better, have dinner.Our sumptuous farm breakfast include : a plate of fruit in season, at least a dozen homemade preserves and jams, freshly baked bread, vetkoek ( a traditional farm fried bread), a cheese platter, cereals, yogurt, eggs and also a choice between ostrich and pork bacon..Enjoy home cooked country cuisine prepared by Anné-Lize and her small team of able and enthusiastic assistants. Neels is the meat “chef” on the open fire, unless farm work calls him away. A three course Less
