So this place is charming... there are 2 horses, a very sweet donkey and some dogs that roam around and happily come visit you at your cottage. There is a shared pool between 4 cottages and a jungle gym. BUT I have to say the beds were rock hard and the kitchens could do with some upgrading. Thats the honest truth.
But we were there for the family time (3 families looking to be together). We swam together, braid together and walked between our chalets and hung out... I loved it but I was sleep deprived from the hard bed and I simply closed my eyes in regards to the kitchen.

Seventeen of us returned to experience the wonderful hospitality offer by Taryn and Tienie at Goodhope Farm. We so enjoyed our stay in 2017 that we all unanimously agreed to again visit this lovely farm in its remote location tucked at the end of the valley up against the Riviersonderend mountains. We were not disappointed. Taryn provided delicious meals and the farm again worked its magic.

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

Room tip: Mountain Cottages for adult parties and Dam Cottages for families
