This is a quiet rural farmhouse establishment; it is relaxed and peaceful with a genuine Afrikaans welcome from Kobus & Elmare who are the most welcoming of hosts. Both the breakfast and the evening meal were fantastic and highly recommended. Be advised they don't keep ostriches any more, but this is a minor consideration when taking the entire experience into account.
Thank you for your hospitality!
