At least twice a week I think back on our stay in this beautiful Western Cape area.
It was one of the many highlights of our trip through South Africa.
Skeiding is a great place if you're a fan of beauty, hospitality and good food.
Sitting in front of our room next to the farm we enjoyed the beautiful views.
Anne-Lize and Neels are champions in letting you feel at home and the meals we enjoyed were invariably delicious.
The room was adequate, the bed was fine.
An extra, for us, far from home was, like in many other places in SA that it was here possible to talk to our host and wife in Dutch / Afrikaans. Baie leuk.
A few bonuses: Skeiding is a working farm.
Our early morning trip with Neels and his staff to feed the ostriches and to observe the sheep for diseases and feed them too was, in all its simplicity , one of the highlights of our South African Road trip.
Another one is the excellent Boboti from Anne Lize.
My wife got the recipe and tried it out. Delicious!
And last but not least, there is Dixie the Dachshund.
A real "everybody's friend" Tirelessy sitting upon my lap
I am sure that,if we ever are going back to South Africa, Skeiding for shure is top of our list ..
What a wonderful World..
Keep up the good work Neels and Anne Lize, jullie heb ons bederf.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Skeiding is one of those places that you fall in love with for no reason ... maybe it's the absolute peace and tranquillity or the panoramic views of the Langeberg mountains or the bright stars at night or the mouth watering food or the goodness of being close to nature ... that makes you want to come back. Situated on high, open, rolling terrain you experience the feeling of freedom and being kind of alone with no neighbour in sight. Skeiding is a working grain, sheep, ostrich and Nguni farm … close to the N2 and halfway (250 km) between Cape Town and Knysna. This makes us the ideal stopover. A friendly family farm, an education for city slickers, a place to relax and enjoy panoramic mountain views as the farm is situated on high, open rolling terrain. We Neels and Anné-Lize is two energetic people who love life …you need to be to run a farm, a young family (Anné and Pieter), two dogs (Dixie and Jessie), a cat (Tierkat) and a guesthouse in the same lifetime.Spoil yourself and stay Bed & Breakfast or even better, have dinner.Our sumptuous farm breakfast include : a plate of fruit in season, at least a dozen homemade preserves and jams, freshly baked bread, vetkoek ( a traditional farm fried bread), a cheese platter, cereals, yogurt, eggs and also a choice between ostrich and pork bacon..Enjoy home cooked country cuisine prepared by Anné-Lize and her small team of able and enthusiastic assistants. Neels is the meat “chef” on the open fire, unless farm work calls him away. A three course ... more less
