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, 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

One of the best farm stays in SA. Lovely environment with beautiful views. The cottages are very well equipped with everything you need. Dinner and breakfast is definitely recommended with your stay! A very well run establishment with lots of attention to detail!

Don't be put off by the short (about 9km) dirt road to the Farm, it was well maintained. Beautiful Little Karoo views. The room (Nguni) was as advertised, clean, well appointed with a very comfortable bed. But the absolute highlight was the food and the personal service. Great value for money.

Our family spent 1 unforgettable night at the farm. The staff was so friendly and made us feel right at home. Our self catering unit was lovely with the most beautiful view from the braai area. The kids loved the pool and the wide open spaces. We will definitely return.

We have chosen Skeiding Farm as one of our stops on our South Africa roundtrip because of the excellent ratings on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. While we appreciate "authentic and rustic" there's quite a difference to "old and run down". Our room and especially the bathroom were dark, stuffy and plain old. Even the liberal use of "Doom" couldn't extinguish the many moskitoes. Breakfast and dinner were OK, but by far not on the standard of the other accomodations during our trip. Also, it's not for everybody to have dinner at a joint table in family style with other guests and two dogs (even though friendly ones) running around. The "farm tour" costs 130 ZAR which is the equivalent price of a dinner and it hadn't been mentioned that it would be charged... All in all the place was absolutely not what we expected after the raving reviews on Tripadvisor and the dinner price doesn't seem justified when compared to other, far more upscales venues on the Garden Route.
