Gerieflik en skoon.

Eenheid het aan die basiese behoeftes voldoen met al die geriewe. Het een aand oorgeslaap. TV was aan maar kon nie kanale verander nie. Was nie seker of daar WiFi was nie. Host het niks genoem nie.

Besonderse plek in die Karoo.

Finchley is 'n pragtige oase. Ons het met fietse deur die Baviaanskloof getrek en kon dadelik afkoel in hul swembad. Die kamers was goed ingerig, mooi en koel. Maak gerus gebruik van die heerlike aandete en ontbyt. Ons het ontbytpakkies geneem wat ons op die pad geëet het. Dit was 'n hoogtepunt van ons rit op pad McGregor toe.

Special place in the Karoo.

Finchley is a beautiful oasis. We cycled through the Baviaanskloof and were immediately able to cool off in their swimming pool. The rooms were well appointed, nice and cool. Feel free to make use of the delicious dinner and breakfast. We took breakfast packs which we ate on the road. This was a highlight of our drive on the way to McGregor.

Baie rustige en pragtige plaas. Siels verreikend!

Finchley Farm Cottages is baie ideaal geleë net buite die dorp Willowmore. Dit is maklik om daar te kom en die rustigheid is wonderlik. Pragtige tuine en baie vriendelike mense. Daar is baie stap paadjies en koppies om 'n 360-uitsig in te neem. Voorwaar 'n aanbeveling vir iemand wat die rustigheid soek!

Pragtige plaasomgewing, goed toegeruste huisie, baie vriendelike mense en heerlike kos.

Ons het lekker geslaap by Finchley Farm. Die mense is baie vriendelik, hulpvaardig en lief vir kinders. Ons kinders kon lekker fietsry op die plaas en speel op die klimraam. Die hoogtepunt van die aand was vir seker die heerlike, tuisgemaakte kos wat op 'n yskoue aand in ons huisie bedien was. En natuurlik die kaggel en warmkomberse op die beddens!

Beautiful farm environment, well-equipped cottage, very friendly people and delicious food.

We slept well at Finchley Farm. The people are very friendly, helpful and love children. Our children had fun cycling on the farm and playing on the climbing frame. The highlight of the evening was for sure the delicious, home-cooked food that was served in our little house on a freezing cold evening. And of course the fireplace and warm blankets on the beds!

Ons het onlangs die kaggel laat herstel wat wel gerook het, maar sal die mure afwas.
Daar was 'n probleem met die Wifi terwyl julle hier was en is gelukkig intussen herstel. Jammer vir die ongerief.
Die waterdrukking op ons plaas is maar laag, maar ons het darem water in ons krane.

Hello Surita,
Dankie vir u terugvoering
Die economy kamer is eintlik maar 'n "budget kamer " so die gerief van spasie is maar besperk. As 'n persoon meer spasie soek sal die "large cottage" 'n beter opsie wees as dit beskikbaar is.
Ek dink die naam "economy room" is selfspreukend.

Ek glo die goeie gehalte mattresse het darem vir 'n goeie nag rus gesorg.
Dankie vir die ondersteunding en onthou om die large cottage te bespreuk met julle volgende kuier.

Alles wat mooi is vir 2023

Comfortable stay.

The apartment has a bedroom, lounge and kitchen, bathroom with shower and corner bath. Very comfortable and clean and well-equipped. There is a small outside area to sit with a private corner of the garden. Unfortunately, it is not a free-standing unit, in the bedroom, you can hear your neighbours in their kitchen. We had quiet neighbours, so not a problem.

Glad nie welkom gevoel nie.

Met ons aankoms was die kamer se sleutel soek. TV-beheerafstand was nie beskikbaar nie. Gasvrou moes een in 'n ander kamer gaan haal wat in elk geval van geen nut was nie, want die TV het so gesneeu dat ons niks kon sien nie. Yshouertjie met ys in was vuil en gemuf. Stortvloer en mure was vuil. Badkamerlig was nie bedek nie. Dit het gelyk of daar onderhoud gedoen was en dinge net so gelos is in die badkamer. Ook toe ons deur die webtuiste bespreek het het ons gevra vir bed en ontbyt. Ontbyt was nie ingesluit nie wat nogal teleurstellend was.

Didn't feel welcome at all.

Upon our arrival the room key was wanted. TV remote was not available. Hostess had to fetch one in another room which was of no use anyway as the TV was snowing so much we couldn't see anything. Ice container with ice in it was dirty and moldy. Shower floor and walls were dirty. Bathroom light was not covered. It looked like maintenance had been done and things had just been left in the bathroom. Also when we booked through the website we asked for bed and breakfast. Breakfast was not included which was quite disappointing.

Goeie dag Mev Boshoff

Ek is jammer vir die ongerief. Ek het al die klagtes nagegaan en dit uitsorteer. Ek het ongelukkig nie die TV syn nagegaan nadat 'n ma met klein kinders die vorige aand daar oornag het nie.

Die bedrag van R680 sluit ontbyt uit. Indien u ontbyt wou hê, was dit R80 extra per persoon. U het dit nie bygetel met u bespreking nie.
U het my gevra of ontbyt ingesluit was en ek het gevra hoeveel u betaal het, en gesê die bedrag van R680 sluit ontbyt uit.
Ek het gevra of u ontbyt wou hê, maar u het nee dankie gesê

Fabulous farm stay.

We stopped over in Willowmore for one night on our way to Addo and stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage. It was neat and tidy and had everything we needed. The decor is old farm cottage style with creaky wooden floors and some antique furniture pieces as well as a few quirky decor items which I rather liked, but might not be to everybody's taste. The bathroom is large with a decent size shower and large bath. I would have liked a shelf/cabinet for my toiletries. The bedrooms are large, though the twin only had one dresser. We stayed one night and never unpacked, so it was not an issue. The living room was a lot smaller than the photos suggest, but more than adequate for us. The chairs are a bit rickety, but comfortable. I would have liked some scatter cushions as I am on the short side and the seating is rather deep. There is a TV with DStv. It is in a beautiful, old cabinet and a bit low. The one cabinet door keeps getting in the way when you need to go down the passage. The kitchen is galley style, but bigger than it looks on the photos. There is an inside braai on the far side of the kitchen which might be a bit tricky to use comfortably as it would only accommodate the braaier. There is a lovely, sunny stoep with a patio table and chairs. It gets the sun through the day and might be too hot in summer, but was wonderful for winter. There is an umbrella stand to offer some shade. There is small lawn in front of the cottage and another small garden behind (where the 1 bed cottage is located) with a swimming pool. I saw a drum-braai for outside use.There is also a play area for kids in front of the main house. The cottage was a lot warmer than we thought considering how cold the nights can be. There are however electric blankets, panel heaters and more than enough bed coverings to keep you cosy. For the summer days all the rooms have fans and there is an air conditioner for an extra charge. The cottage is on a dirt road, but we arrived in a sedan with no problems. The road was better than some of the tarred roads in the Eastern Cape. You need to turn off the main road into Willowmore and drive under it to get to the dirt road. It was rather dark and hard to see the entrance when we returned after supper in town. The owners were friendly and helpful with great suggestions of where to eat and what to do in the area. I would recommend this as a stop on your way through the area.

Thank you Jeanie and Michele for your detailed review.
I will make work of a shelf for toiletries in the bathroom. Behind the bedroom door of the twin room, there are hooks and hangers for any clothing that needs to be hung up overnight.
I will see what plan I can come up with for the TV cabinets door.
It was such a pleasure having you on Finchley Farm and trust you enjoyed the rest of your travels.

Ons het lekker gebly en kon een van die staproetes doen. Dit was 'n verligting na heeldag se sit in die motor. Ons kon hout goedkoop kry by die gasheer en hulle was so gaaf om nog fynhoutjies ook te voorsien. Ons sal weer daar oornag as ons weer daardie rigting gaan.

Overpriced, underserved

The website's photos totally misled us. Our "econo room" was a back room at the house and the housemates and guests kept us up late at night. Our car was parked quite a distance away and we had to carry all our luggage up to our room because we didn't feel safe leaving it in the car for the night. However, the room was neat and clean, but cramped with only single beds. For TV, you depend on what the people in the house are watching. No plates or cutlery. Nails fall from the ceiling and the toilet's water tank lid gapes open. Our so-called "econo room" in no way compares to Klondike Lodge at Vryburg where for R20 more per night we got a spacious room with double bed, kitchenette and spacious bathroom plus independent TV. A self-help breakfast and carport right in front of our room was included in the Klondike price. Finchley Farm Cottages is located several miles up the dirt road outside of Willowmore.

Regarding the air-con being an optional extra. We just felt it was more fair for other guests who might arrive later when its cooler or later in the year as some could use it and others not and then they are paying for something, they never used. Trust you understand.

Keep well
Joanne

Skoon en gerieflik vir kinders.

Gasvry, stort se koue kraan het nie gewerk nie. Water is skaars so ons moes bad. Het hele gesin in een bad gebad. Was effe ongerieflik maar dis net een aand. Plek baie goed ingerig. Baie spinnekoppe maar dis ook OK.

Clean and comfortable for children.

Hospitality, shower's cold tap didn't work. Water is scarce so we had to bathe. Bathed whole family in one bath. Was a bit inconvenient but it's only one night. Place very well furnished. Lots of spiders but that's also OK.

Baie netjies en skoon.

Finchley Farm Cottages is 'n heerlike oornagverblyfplekkie waar jy kan ontspan na 'n lang dag se reis. Die slaap- en wasgeriewe is skoon en netjies. Dit is baie stil en dus kon ons 'n goeie nagrus geniet.

Finchley Farm Cottages is a lovely overnight accommodation where you can relax after a long day's travel. The sleeping and washing facilities are clean and tidy. It is very quiet and so we could enjoy a good night's rest.

Rustige Karooplaas-verblyf.

Lekker oorslaapplek op 'n werkende Karooplaas. Outentieke verblyf met alles wat jy nodig het. Naby die dorp indien jy skielik iets benodig.

Here you can find rest for your soul again and realise what life is about. Highly recommended to people who live in cities, staying in their own jails. Come and experience freedom, fresh air, peace, rest and a lot of quietness!

Die buitengewone warm dae is getemper met goeie lugversorging en 'n swembad- ons het die wonderlike Karoo atmosfeer ingesuig.

Ten spyte daarvan dat ons die drie warmste dae 39C, 44C, 37C gekies het (die dae voor en na was 25C en 23C met bietjie reën) was dit 'n uitsondelike ervaring. Die uitsonderlike warm weer het ons bewegings beperk maar desnieteenstaande het ek 35 voëlspesies gesien. Die aande was heerlik soel en die geur van die doringhout vuur was enig. Die groter wooneenheid het ons terdeë gepas met baie ruimte (veral omdat dit so warm was buite). Nuwejaarsaand het die gasheer en sy familie ons genooi vir 'n nagrit na hulle jaarlikse vuurwerkevertoning op die koppie met Willowmore se liggies in die verte. Dis 'n skaap en jagplaas en daar is baie wild. Die gasvrou en haar man is egte Engelse boere mense met die tipiese hartlikheid van Karoo boere. Ons sal graag wil terugkeer maar blykbaar is om en by April die beste tyd weer gewys en dalk ook voëlspesies gewys.

The exceptionally hot days were tamed with good aircon and a swimming pool - we drank in the wonderfulness of the Karoo region.

Despite the fact that we chose the three hottest days 39°, 44°, 37° (the days before and after were 25° and 23°), it was an excellent experience. The exceptionally hot weather limited our activities but even so I saw 35 bird species. The evenings were lovely and balmy and the aroma of thornwood was special. The bigger living unit suited us well as it had lots of room (especially because it was so hot outside). New Years Eve the host and his family invited us to join them on their annual night ride to see the fireworks on the koppie with Willowmore's lights in the distance. It is a sheep and hunting farm and there is a lot of game. The hostess and her husband are real English farmers with the typical warmth of the Karoo farmers. We would like to return but apparently April is the best time weather-wise and also bird-wise.

More than adequate.

Well sign posted. Close to main street. Very peaceful and relaxing. Slightly overpriced in comparison to the rest of our destinations during this trip of ours.
