Description

The Funny Farm Shire is situated in a rural, sunny location next to the wetlands of the Garden Route National Park. There is abundant bird life on the farm and adjoining wetlands, these can be seen close up at the Malachite Bird Hide which is 400 m from the farm gate. One of the property’s most outstanding features is its magnificent view of Langvlei Lake, which is a large protected bird wetland and an internationally designated Ramsar site.

The property has 2 lovely homes, which are professionally built cob houses with beautiful indigenous wooden window frames, doors and counters. Both homes feel cosy, natural and uncomplicated. They are well insulated. Each has its own large secure garden area.

The farm has 8 hectares of elevated, thick indigenous forest which can be experienced close up when doing the Jackal Buzzard Trail. This is about a 30-minute walk, taking guests through the forest, with shady places to stop and have a rest while admiring the view over the lakes.

The Wilderness Milkwood Village is 14 km away from the farm and has a variety of shops, restaurants, medical facilities, hairdressers and a laundry service. The scenic route takes guests along the edge of Langvlei Lake, past the Brown Hooded Kingfisher hiking trail, along the banks of island Lake, across the railway bridge at Ebb and Flow National Park, past the Half Collared Kingfisher hiking trail and along the Wilderness lagoon with its boardwalk.

The Funny Farm Shire is a special place for those wanting to slow down and rest in nature’s tranquillity. Resonating The Lord of the Rings theme, with Gandalf’s Wishing Well and Gollum’s Den on the forest walk for the young ones to enjoy.
