From our private patio we looked over the lavender bed and watered lawns to the drama of folded mountains that, from a...

Lovely gardens & chalets, coupled with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The chalets were charming inside & out, with some lovely additions likes the fireplace & braai area. Very comfortable beds and the living spaces were amazing. Very cute indeed. A little disappointed that there was no hot water - especially as that was what we were craving after...

It's not every day one finds such a gem! The warm welcome, the magnificent setting and view and the excellent food made this visit a very memorable experience. The gnocchi starter and lamb neck as a main was out of this world! The ladies had the burger on a mushroom - all cooked to perfection. This is a restaurant well...

Stumbled upon this Stanford gem. Chef Madré Malan is gifted. Every bite of food from the Restaurant has left a lasting impression on me. Variety of accommodation available ranging from self-catering to en-suite rooms. We stayed in one of the en-suite cottages. Crisp clean linen. Uncluttered clean simplicity with the most beautiful and inspiring art to add a special touch...

Beautiful accomodation and we were extra thankful for the woodburning stove in our room, on a chilly Spring night. The 360' views for everywhere on the farm are just spectacular.
