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 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 and ostrich 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 are two energetic people who love life …you need to be to run a farm, a young family (Anné and Pieter), three dogs (Klara, Layla and Mila), a cat (Tierkat) and a guesthouse at the same time. Spoil yourself and stay Self-catering, 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, 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.

What an amazing place! Such beautiful decor, comfortable big room, beautiful nature around! The food was just out of this world! Dinner and breakfast were unbelievably delicious! Best we had in South Africa and best breakfast we’ve ever had, everything is hand made! We would love to come back and recommend to everyone to make a relaxing stop at the magical place.

Would like to thank Skeiding owners and their staff for offering us a very pleasant stay. Rooms and services are superb. They also shared a bottle of champagne to celebrate my birthday. We also took the farm tour in the morning which made the experience more unique.

The view was amazing. Sone our guide, was knowledgeable and welcoming, making sure that everyone was well taken care of ( as well as being an excellent chef!). The owner was passionate and gave us great insights into life on the farm. Our morning tour of the farm with Sone and two staff members was fun! We fed the ostriches, and saw zebra, emus, springbok, sheep, pigs, chickens, cows and so much more, followed by a delicious farm breakfast. Thanks to all!

Beautiful farm with breathtaking scenery. Warm hospitality and the best of South African food. The rooms are well appointed- everything thing has been thought of with much attention, care and love. Neels and Anne-Lize are so accommodating and welcoming-a true South African experience. Don’t miss the evening meal - a real gourmet experience with beautiful presentation, complemented with great local wines.

We can not share the enthusiasm 100%, although it was nice. The staff was accommodating and the breakfast and dinner were fantastic. However, we found the price for dinner quite expensive. The farm tour was also expensive and the cost was only seen on the final bill. The cottages were very nicely located and have a great view but are quite used and not particularly clean. All in all a nice stop, but we would not have missed anything if we had left it out.

We loved our one night stay at the Guest Farm and wished we could have stayed for longer! We booked dinner before arriving and the food was SO good. We did the farm tour in the morning which was so much fun and then breakfast was delicious - so many cheeses. The hosts were wonderful and we loved our cottage. Our room had a book with so many nearby activities - we'll just have to come back sometime to try them! It was a bit chilly and we would have loved to get the fire places going if we had more time there. Seems like a really great place to relax.

A real experience. Characterful rooms with wonderful views. Really attentive and friendly hosts and staff. Food is fabulous including the ostrich dishes. Don’t miss the opportunity to do the farm tour with Neels. He is a font of knowledge and it’s great to see the wildebeest, zebra and springbok as well as (obviously) the ostrich and sheep. Really enjoyed our stay.

Skeiding Guest Farm is the perfect escape if you're looking to relax and get away from it all. The cottage had everything we needed, not to mention a beautiful view! The morning farm tour is not to be missed - Neels is a great story-teller and it's a wonderful way to learn about the history of the area while you're driven around the farm, herding sheep and checking out the wildlife. We saw zebra, black wildebeest, ostrich, springbok and even the hartebeest made an appearance. After the tour was breakfast, with freshly baked bread, more jams and cheeses than you can count, and a huge choice of other culinary delights. Anné-Lize and her staff have really created something special - next time we'll definitely be there for dinner too! A truly memorable stay.

We had a wonderful time at Skeiding Guest Farm. Our cottage (Aloe) was big, beautiful and well-equipped. Anné-Lize is a fantastic cook with an artistic eye. Breakfast and dinner were a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Neels is a charming host, and makes a mean braai ostrich steak. Hiking the farm roads is a treat with sweeping views and colorful birds. The ostriches were fun, too. This was such a fun, interesting change from the Garden Route. Highly recommend!
