We stayed at langdam for a weekend. What a treat, Peter the host is amazingly friendly and so unbelievably helpful. For these two city dwellers who love animals, we were in heaven. Pigs, dogs, chickens, a sheep and just the best most tranquil surroundings.
The Apricot Suite:
Wow, it had everything we needed. Champagne glasses, pots, pans, over gloves a microwave. A gorgeous Victorian bath, lovely slightly challenging 2 headed shower. Gorgeous fire place, which warmed the whole suite up. It has a fantastic braai area outside, and you can ask for both braai wood and a bag of pine cones to be put at your suite for a very reasonable amount.
It is gorgeous. There is a fantastic trail you can do behind the farm, Eagle trail, what a great hike. Pack snacks and water and marvel at the beauty of the Koo valley. There are animals everywhere, you do get woken by the turkeys and cockrals but it is absolutely gorgeous as you can carry on sleeping if you like. One seems to loose track of time here. The pigs are so much fun to watch. i do in fairness have the biggest pig obsession. so this was simply sublime for me. There is a great dam on the property ( you are able to fish here, however, we did not get around to it). There is a gorgeous lapa where one can braai too. There is also a beautiful swimming pool/ old dam. It is crystal clear. There is a lovely jetty to walk on or have a sundowner on, that extends into the dam. There is also a great little shop on the farm.
Possibly one of the best parts of the weekend, you may be lucky enough too if you are there in Lamb season, was feeding baby lambs. Tarryn from the farm next door, called Peter to see if he had any guests who would like to feed day old lambs. We jumped at the opportunity. Off we went, Tarryn is so friendly. We got given a bottle and went into the little field and bottle fed the day old lambs. Tarryn said to come back any time so we did the following day. We fed the lambs again and were then invited in for a drink for all our "hard" work. The people in the Koo area are incredibly friendly. I would ask Peter if Tarryn has any lambs if you get the opportunity as it was so much fun.
All in all a fantastic weekend. We will definitely be going back.
