Loved the cool farmhouse, hot tub, the donkeys, forest setting.

Only irritation were the flies! And a good swimming spot.

Farmhouse getaway A+.

This little gem can really be recommended. No cell phone reception or Wi-Fi, a real getaway. Why is nobody talking about the Lions' roars coming from Panthera Africa about 3.5 km away? A real treat. Neat, clean, comfortable stay. The hot tub works well, just follow the instructions to the T. Donkey-greetings in the mornings made for more excitement. The birdlife is amazing. Thank you for a beautiful 4 days. We will be back.

Best family weekend away!

Wow! This place took my breath away! The house is old and full of antiques yet has everything you need. A massive porch overlooks the donkeys grazing on your lawn while steam rises from the wood-fired hot tub, the kids are running off into the forest to catch frogs or feed the Alpacas. Loadshedding hit one night while we were in the hot tub, but the air was clear so we stayed inside the warm water even longer while watching the starry night sky. There's no signal so the days are long and slow, perfect for a mental reset. But the ability to wonder off and explore the farm was my ultimate favourite! We're definitely coming back. Hands down best winter family holiday we've had in years! Warning: The owner refused to tell me, but there is a chemical in the hot tub water that puts you to sleep as soon as you get out of it! Haha!

A fantastic family extended weekend.

We spent 4 days at the Little Farmhouse. A well appointed cottage that housed 5 of us comfortably. The hot tub was a welcome addition in the cold weather. The hot water bottles on the beds were a nice touch and were really needed.

Iets anders.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier en kaartgespeel om die tafel op die stoep. Die klein, verhitte swembad was heerlik om in te ontspan. Braai was ook treffer met feetjieligte. Toekomstige besoekers moet net ingelig word dat daar geen WiFi of selfoonopvangs is nie. Die boonste slaapkamer op met trappe het geen deur. Persone wat in boonste kamer slaap moet deur ander kamers gaan om by badkamer uit te kom. Ander 2 kamers het en suite-badkamers. Mense net kennis neem daarvan.

Something else.

We had a great time and played cards around the table on the porch. The small, heated pool was lovely to relax in. Braai was also a hit with fairy lights. Future visitors should only be informed that there is no WiFi or cell phone reception. The upstairs bedroom up stairs has no door. Persons sleeping in the upper room have to go through other rooms to get to the bathroom. Other 2 rooms have en-suite bathrooms. People just take note of it.

'n Lieflike wegkruiphuis met 'n wye kuierstoep.

'n Lieflike huis met 'n wye kuierstoep staan tussen hoë bome en kyk uit op 'n kuierarea (grasperk, 'hot tub' en braaiplek ). Ideaal vir uitrus, vir lees, vir saamkuier.

A lovely hideaway with a wide veranda.

A lovely house with a wide porch stands between tall trees and overlooks a recreation area (lawn, hot tub and barbecue area). Ideal for resting, for reading, for socializing.

Wonderful, fun, relaxing, home away from home, great experience overal.

Beautiful setting, lovely and rustic farm house accommodation with everything you need. Nice and clean and neat. The hot tub is amazing and a really fun experience. The donkeys came to visit which was great, lots of space to explore, great hosts and just an all round great stay. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back!

Very comfy little house, but see comments below.

Outside bathtub took stacks of wood to heat up and water was still lukewarm. Could do with a sharp knife and larger frying pan. One frying pan needed replacing. Seats in 2 chairs in lounge worn out and lumpy. Single bed mattresses like a hammock, need replacing. However, loved the old-world style.

Ons het 'n sprokiesagtige naweek gehad.

Die liggies in die bome en die nuwe "hot tub" het bygedra tot die atmosfeer. Die plaasdiere wat kom groet het in die oggende was 'n vriendelike verwelkoming. Ek sal definitief hierdie plek aanbeveel vir gesinne.

Dit was 'n lekker rustige tydjie weg. Baie veilig en gemaklik.

Ons het 'n baie lekker tydjie weg gehad saam met vriende. Dit is rustig, eenkant en die gebrek aan internet en selfoonsein is eintlik 'n goeie breuk van elke dag se gejaag. Die huisie is fantasties, alles wat mens nodig het. Die ligging is ook baie mooi en die plaasdiere wat buite rondloop is 'n lekker verrassing.

We had a very nice time away with friends. It's quiet, secluded and the lack of internet and cell phone signal is actually a nice break from the hustle and bustle of every day. The house is fantastic, everything you need. The location is also very beautiful and the farm animals roaming around outside are a nice surprise.

Pragtig omgewing en verblyf. Eienaars was vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

Pragtige huisie wat met smaak toegerus en verfraai is. Die Dover-stoof en kaggel was heerlik tydens die winterkoue. Die eerste aand het ons vanaf 22:00 nie elektrisiteit gehad nie, maar die eienaar was heeltyd beskikbaar, het die volgende oggend kom inspeksie doen en ook heeltyd plegtig om verskoning gevra. Die volgende oggend het hy kom hoor of alles wel is en vir ons van ons geld teruggegee vir die ongerief. Ten spyte van bogenoemde sal ek dit vir almal aanbeveel wat Stanford se prag en die rustigheid van die plaas wil ervaar. Sowaar heerlik en die mandjie gepak met lemoene, olywe en wyn toe ons gearriveer het was 'n vriendelike gebaar. Al negatiewe punt is dat daar nie 'n mikrogolfoond is nie, dus het dit maar gesukkel met my tweejarige se bottels.

Beautiful surroundings and accommodation. Owners were friendly and helpful.

Beautiful house that has been furnished and decorated with taste. The Dover stove and fireplace were lovely during the winter cold. The first night we had no electricity from 22:00, but the owner was available all the time, came to inspect the next morning and also apologized solemnly all the time. The next morning he came to see if everything was alright and gave us some of our money back for the inconvenience. Despite the above, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience Stanford's splendor and the tranquility of the farm. Really delicious and the basket packed with oranges, olives and wine when we arrived was a kind touch. Only negative point is that there is no microwave, so it struggled with my two year old's bottles.
