The Featherd Nest is one of those places that South Africa seems to excel at, but this is one of the best. My wife and I are regular visitors to SA (my sister lives in Joburg) and we have stayed on a number of guest farms, but none quite like this one. The cottages are lovely and clean,well maintained and... More

This place is a gem - we stayed there after a weekend in the Pilanesberg to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our hosts, Marion, Martin & EL-Bé, are simply magnificent. The food is beyond gourmand and our room, Batis, is better than most 5-star hotels. We will be back.

Using the title "rare find" is certainly the desire to hit a chord, as this is an Amazing place!. To think that one can find superb tranquility almost on your doorstep, just 90 minutes out of the city. From our arrival to departure The Feathered Nest did not disappoint. The absolute attention to detail in every aspect of the place... More

Beautiful setting, gourmet food, amazing people, we had the most amazing time. It was like visiting special friends. Highly recommended for a weekend away. They also rehabilitate Owls and various other birds. The Ani als there were so friendly it felt like home. Thank you. Richard and Yvonne Mitchell.

I don't rate anything 'the best' lightly, but last weekend I experienced the best getaway I've ever experienced in 25 odd years; from the very first meeting of Martin at the gate, Marion's kind attention to detail in welcoming us and preparing the most amazing meal in luxurious surroundings in the bush and El-Bé's easy, friendly socialising with us as...

We had been meaning to visit The Feathered Nest Guest Farm for years but, living in Cape Town, it's not often we both get the chance to get up to that part of the country. Silly us for leaving it so long - what a gem this is. The first impression is the friendliness of the owner manager team of... More

From the first conversation with Marion when we made the booking, to the goodbyes on Sunday. What an amazing experience. Every single attention to detail, personal touch and professionalism will always stand out. Our cottage was beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. The personal welcome card on our bed on Friday evening, and the bird's nest filled with choccies on Saturday... More
