Good Hope Farm
Reviewed 28 September 2017

We stayed in the Lavender cottage which were really nice. Clean comfortable, beautiful view, peaceful... real tonic to the soul. The hostess was really helpful and very friendly. Will go back again.Loved the farm animals, the lively Jack Russel do just wanting to play.
Lovely mountain walks. Nice wine farms on the way.

Two things happen when you approach the Good Hope Farm. As you approach you are blown away by the view of the farm (See photo!)- AND - you also immediately loose any connectivity with the outside world, which is a lovely thing! If you are permanently tethered to your phone, ipad or such, then this might not be the place for you, but we found it actually really refreshing to unplug from the rest of the world for a couple of days (and a quick drive up the hill and you can connect again, if you have to :).

But let's focus on what is so wonderful about this place:
1. The views and the location
2. It is an working, organic farm. Animals galore. On one afternoon sitting in the garden of the cottage we had young pigs visiting, goats, a few sheep, young cows and of course the farm dogs and even Geoffrey, the pony sized goat, who wanted to investigate the bedroom of the cottage :)
3. There is boma with a pool close to the Mountain Cottages, which is lovely for gatherings.
4. We were with a large group that had also organized catering and the food provided was fresh and excellent (fresh farm meat, home baked breads and excellent salads).

A place we would recommend and return to! Lots to do here and I would imagine a wonderful place for families and a good rest away from it all!

Room Tip: These are self-catering cottages, not hotel rooms.

Every year for the last nine years a group of friends most of whom are over 70 get together for a week of cycling in different areas of South Africa. We spent the first two nights of our tour this year in the Mountain Cottages at the wonderfully secluded and remote Good Hope Farm where our hosts Taryn and Tienie could not have done more for the eighteen of us. The cottages are clean and comfortable and sited near a very pleasant boma and swimming pool where we were served delicious meals by Taryn and her staff. Taryn also arranged a wine tasting at nearby Windfall winery where she delivered a super cold lunch to accompany their excellent wines.
Good Farm is a delight with animals everywhere -pigs and piglets, sheep, calves, dogs and cats all living in seeming harmony. What a wonderful oasis created by this hard working and animal loving couple. We can thoroughly recommend any one wanting to chill out to spend time on their lovely farm

Our group of 7 ladies stayed at this tranquil farm for a weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday. The Dam Cottages are rustic but clean with awesome showers! The communal kitchen/dining/socialising area is lovely. The fact that there is no cellphone signal means a very welcome break from technology. We did a little run on the Saturday morning and thoroughly enjoyed all the early morning farm sights and sounds. Highly recommended for a relaxing, soul rejuvenating break.

My family and I stayed at GHFC from the 14th December - 19th December 2016. A party of 8. We stayed in the protea cottage and the lavender cottage. We loved the rustic feel, the view of the vineyards and mountains. My 3-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the farm animals especially the beautiful white horse and donkey and their inseparable friendship and of course the seacock (peacock in her vocab).
A Perfect place for a family who wants to wind down from city life, electronics and every day buzz of life. For those who are looking for a family holiday with a genuine rustic feel, fresh air, swimming, walking and canoeing, Good hope farm cottages is the place to go. Taryn and Tienie were amazing they went out of their way to accommodate our every whim, Will definitely like to go back!
