Mooivlei Guest Farm is situated between Aliwal North and Lady Grey in the Eastern Cape, just 8 km off the R58. Your hosts, Ebbie and Minette Hattingh invite you to enjoy a delightful farm experience and comfortable accommodation in 2 homely, stone cottages.

The 2 open-plan cottages are fully furnished and comprise bedrooms, dining areas and kitchens. The kitchens are equipped with gas stoves, gas ovens, electrical fridges and freezers, and crockery and cutlery. Each cottage has a separate bathroom, one with a bath and a shower, and the other with a shower only. Both cottages are equipped with fireplaces for those winter nights. The combination of solid timber floors, thick sandstone walls, and insulated roofs produce a comfortable room temperature.

With nature on your door step, there is plenty to do, which is why the cottages have not been equipped with TV's. Wi-Fi is available; guests can enquire for data package prices. Lovely farm meals are also offered. For the nature lovers and adventure seekers, there is plenty on offer. After a good rain season, the Eendracht Dam provides canoeing and bird watching opportunities. The farm offers a diverse variety of water birds and has recently identified breeding pairs of Whiskered Terns. The farm also offers many gravel roads for mountain biking, hiking, and jogging. In the veld, there have been frequent sightings of Secretary Birds, Mahems, Ludwig's Bustards, and the Burchell's Courser.

The Hattingh's moved to Mooivlei with the dream to develop the beautiful sandstone ruins into a guest farm. The 2 cottages, dating back 60 years, offer views towards the Lady Grey mountains. Sheep also graze in the fields right next to the cottages. The Hattingh's produce their own organic vegetables, and Minette is a self-taught photographer who delights in taking family portraits in the beautiful scenery of the farm. She also practices architecture from their farm home, and enjoyed designing every detail of the cottages. Most of the furniture and cupboards in the cottages were custom designed and locally produced in Lady Grey.
