Breakfast is served in the kitchen which provides stunning views of the farm dam and the kilometers of surrounding corn fields.
The owners, Koos and Marie; welcomes visitors from all over the world annually and truly know the definition of warmth and hospitality. For some, a farm stay is a simple way to step away from many of the technological distractions that seem to dominate our lives. For others, it can be both a pleasant surprise and an educational experience to witness a working farm with horses, pigs, cattle, sheep, chickens, geese and turkeys.
The guestrooms tend to get booked up months in advance by visitors to the expos and events held on the farm as well as local and foreign tourists eager to exchange the busy city life for walks through the farmlands, swimming and lounging next to the glistening pool or relaxing in the jacuzzi.
The guesthouse is the perfect location as a base to visit the surrounding small towns of Philidelphia, Melkbosstrand, Darling and Riebeek-Kasteel.
The farm also offers fishing for fresh water fishing enthusiasts; however they operate on a catch & release basis, free of charge.
With its beautiful lush lawns and garden adjacent to the farm dam; this is also the perfect setting for a garden wedding reception, birthday party or any other intimate event.
The farm also plays host to several large annual events which draws tens of thousands of people to the town of Malmesbury. Ranging from indoor & outdoor expos and music festivals to agriculture and religious events.
