The farm offers refreshing spring water throughout and in no short supply. The patios at the Main House, The Cottage and Large Rondavel boast beautiful views of the sprawling gardens and meadows where sheep, cattle and horses roam freely; bird-life also abounds. The mountains and breath-taking scenery is topped with snow in winter, and covered with nature's green in summer.

Streams filled with trout flow through the countryside and there are a number of hiking trails for the explorer at heart. For those looking for arts and culture, San Rock Art can be seen in a few caves on Fairbairn Kop and exquisite paintings are to be found in numerous nearby sites.
