We spent a lovely weekend on this Karoo farm , situated between Calitzdorp and Oudshoorn. As you turn off the R62 into the farm you arrive at a farm store displaying all sorts of homemade goodies and a restaurant which serves typical South African Cuisine and scrumptious roosterkoek ( bread placed on a grill). The guest rooms are all decorated in classic Victorian style, the rooms are cosy and comfortable ( one almost feels like you are living in your own home). We had no TV which was perfect it gives you time to relax and enjoy the outside boma ( fireplace) and sip wine whilst viewing the bright stars above and listening to the calls of the night animals. The setting is so perfect and tranquil a typical rustic farm atmosphere. You feel free and safe and so at peace in this tiny spot of tranquillity surrounded by sparse barren vegetation and huge rugged mountain ranges. The staff and the owners went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. I can highly recommend this country farm stay along Route 62.
