Rustig.

Dit is 14 km se grondpad. Die huis is mooi en netjies. Die kombuis is goed toegerus met potte, panne en 'n mikrogolf, maar dit kort 'n skoonmaak. Elektriese komberse sou aangenaam wees.

Restful.

It is 14 km of dirt road. The house is nice and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans and a microwave, but it needs a cleaning. Electric blankets would be nice.

Beautiful.

Lovely stay, the only issue was the accommodation didn't inform the owners that we booked the weekend. It could have been easily double booked.

Beautiful!

Highover Farm is incredibly beautiful and peaceful - a magical night's stopover in autumn with kind hosts. This is for you if you enjoy the eccentric, rustic feeling of a real horse farm.

Advertensie was onakkuraat en pad was 'n nagmerrie. My kuier was kortgeknip.

Nee, glad nie. Die pad na die verblyf was langer as wat daar gesê is, en dit was nie geskik vir my voertuig nie.

Advertisement was inaccurate and road was a nightmare. My visit was cut short.

No, not at all. The road to the accommodation was longer than stated, and it was not suitable for my vehicle.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very relaxed. Good walking to be had as well as beautiful horses to interact with. Hosts were great and relaxed. Thank you for allowing us to have so much freedom on your farm.

Rustig, rustig en 'n pragtige omgewing.

Heerlike ontspannende kuier. Rustig. Pragtige omgewing. Wonderlike gasvryheid. Ons het selfs varsgebakte scones, met heerlike konfyt en geklopte room die Sondagmiddag van ons gashere ontvang (dit was mistig en net die perfekte manier om kuier af te sluit). Ons gasheer het selfs aangebied dat ons die Springbokke-game by hulle aan die huis kon kom kyk. As jy wil wegkom van alles en almal, is hierdie verseker die plek om te kuier.

Quiet, peaceful and a beautiful setting.

Great relaxing visit. Restful. Beautiful surroundings. Wonderful hospitality. We even received freshly baked scones, with delicious jam and whipped cream from our hosts on Sunday afternoon (it was foggy and just the perfect way to end the visit). Our host even offered that we could come and watch the Springbok games at their house. If you want to get away from everything and everyone, this is definitely the place to visit.

Very good.

Most relaxing setting. The cottage was well set up, with everything that u needed. Spectacular views, and beautiful animals. The host was also amazing, gave us lots of privacy. Most ideal, we loved every minute of it. Even our Dog had run out of place. A must-see.

Gelukkig net een nag bespreek.

Ongerieflik. Badkamer buite die kamer. Bed staan kop ondertoe. Kombuis is vuil met geen eetborde nie. Kombuisdeur moet met groot moeite oopgemaak word.

Good day, Magdarien

Thank you for your review.

We would like to apologize for the experience you have had with your stay. The unit is cleaned prior to arrival, 6 plates are provided and I have also never been informed of the bed being a problem, should there have been any issues you could have informed me during your stay. The pictures advertised are showing an accurate description of the accommodation.

Kind regards.

Peaceful getaway.

Hosts were so helpful. We arrived in Mooi River in heavy downpours and we were met in town to tow our trailer onto the farm for us in the mud and stormy weather. Due to the unprecedented rains the roads were slippery and we damaged a tyre and Michael, Jacqui and Max quickly towed us out, changed our tyre and settled us into our accommodation. Beautifully appointed and lovely views. The family getaway cottage was a great place to spend time. We canoed on the dam and enjoyed the beautiful albeit muddy walks. Our dogs were made welcome and they had an absolute blast. Mike had our tyre repaired in town for us. They went out of their way to help us.

Rustige plaaslewe.

Ons het lekker gebly, skoon en netjiese eenheid. Daar was hout vir die kaggel wat handig was aangesien dit koud en nat was. Privaat erfie vir ons honde wat saam gereis het. Gasvrou het ons ingelig dat paaie swak is weens baie reën. Geen selfoonopvangs. Eenheid is goed ingerig maar dalk net 'n voorstel om van die snuisterye te verwyder in die eenheid. Daar is bv. 'n kassie in die badkamer om toiletsakkie neer te sit maar dis toegepak met allerhande versierings. Daar is 'n tafel by voordeur en sitkamer maar dis ook toegepak. Die gasvrou doen baie moeite om plek mooi te maak, ons het waardering daarvoor maar dalk net met bietjie minder goed wat nie nuttig is nie. Verder was verblyf goed.

Peaceful farm life.

We had a nice stay, clean and tidy unit. There was wood for the fireplace which was handy as it was cold and wet. Private yard for our dogs who traveled together. Hostess informed us that roads are poor due to a lot of rain. No cell phone reception. Unit is well furnished but maybe just a suggestion to remove some of the trinkets in the unit. There are e.g. a box in the bathroom to put toilet paper but it's covered with all kinds of decorations. There is a table by the front door and living room but it is also packed. The hostess makes a lot of effort to make the place beautiful, we appreciate it but maybe with a little less stuff that is not useful. Other than that, accommodation was good.

Lovely setting for a family Christmas.

Rustic, quirky decor. Warm welcome from owner. We stayed at The Fisherman's Cottage. Inclement weather required my nephew (to his delight) to fetch us for celebrations at the big house in his dad's bakkie. Best if one has a 4-by-4. Just an observation: The door to the bathroom was sticky and did not close totally for privacy. Easily fixed. Signage to each cottage could be clearer.

Die perfekte plek om af te skakel, te vergeet van die wêreld en te wees.

Highover Farm is net ver genoeg van die beskawing om ver weg te voel van als wat pla, die uitsigte is fantasties, die stilte vreedsaam en ons hond het die plaas meer geniet as wat ons het en dit sê baie.

The perfect place to switch off, forget about the world and be.

Highover Farm is just far enough from civilization to feel far away from everything that bothers you, the views are fantastic, the silence peaceful and our dog enjoyed the farm more than we did and that says a lot.
