The Funny Farm Shire

1 of 25
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Wilderness, Western Cape
Self catering houses accommodation in wilderness:

The property has two 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 (lovely and cool in summer and retain the warmth in winter). Each has it's own large secure garden area.

The Wilderness Milkwood Village is 14km away from the farm and has a variety of shops, restaurants, medical facilities, hairdressers and a laundry service. The scenic route takes you 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 board walk.

Inspiring, inaginative accommodation in the cob houses, 'farmer' Russell will tell you all about their eco- friendly construction.
