Beautiful old house with fireplace in the kitchen/dining room open-plan area. Swimming pool was refreshing. Great play area for the children, with trampoline and "creative kitchen". So quiet and peaceful - we loved it.

Response from Gerrit Brits, Owner at Over the Mountain Guest Farm
Responded 15 Sep 2020
We regret that our guests did not have a pleasant stay. It is very disappointing to receive a poor review because guests do not read the information properly. Our booking information and website clearly states that we are 30 minutes drive from either George or Oudtshoorn and that there are NO restaurants nearby, however we do offer dinner and breakfast to guests if they book in advance. Unfortunately we do not offer entertainment to our guests, but Over the Mountain Guest Farm is a place of peace and tranquility where most people get food for the soul.

A perfect Sunday outing - plenty of space for the kiddies to play, good coffee, warm hospitality and their famous freshly baked scones is a must! Close to the Outeniqua "Pass-to-pass" trail that you can combine with your visit if you stay over.

Always stunning to receive good service from any hospitality industry. We were late on our arrival at the tea garden, but was met by the owner with a warm welcome and indicated they are about to close the kitchen, but will gladly serve us, this we appreciated and enjoyed their lovely and fresh scones, served with so much charm. A beautiful and serene view. Worthy stop, when passing through 💤💤💤💤
