Dit was 'n heerlike wegbreek. Ons wou juis wegbreek vir 'n stil verjaarsdag.

Die plaas is baie rustig. Die huisies is goed ingerig en gemaklik. Baie gasvry en akkommoderend.

It was a lovely break. We just wanted to break away for a quiet birthday.

The farm is very peaceful. The cottages are well furnished and comfortable. Very hospitable and accommodating.

Had an awesome three days with my kids. Accommodation was tops, hosts were on the ball, location is prime for the Midlands Meander as well as trail running, mountain biking and walking.

The freshly baked bread provided was a nice surprise as well as the fruit was much appreciated. The firewood provided and more to buy was used every night in the fireplace and braai due to the cold and wet weather. Also enjoyed the benches at the two dams for sundowners and a bit of fishing. Will definitely be back.

Baie goed geleë op 'n pragtige plaas met 'n ongelooflike uitsig op Karkloof.

Net een aspek het gepla. Mark was onbewus dat ons hondjies saamkom hoewel dit gekommunikeer is en ons moes R250 skoonmaakfooi betaal het.

Ek sien jy het opgemerk ons ​​was nie bewus van jou honde wat by jou aangesluit het nie en nadat ek jou bespreking en die boodskappe nagegaan het, ek sien geen notas van jou wat betrekking het op honde nie.
Ons is baie bly jy het jou verblyf geniet en sal verseker ons troeteldierbeleid duidelik maak aan enige toekomstige gaste. Bly veilig.

Dankie dat julle uit julle pad gegaan het om ons te help toe die gas klaar was en dat ons, sonder ekstra kostes, 'n ekstra person kon laat oorslaap.
