we ended our 3 week South Africa holiday at Farm 215 staying there as part of a two day horse trek with the African Horse Company. So starting with Farm 215 we spent one night in a room in the main house and upgraded to a Fynbos Suite for our last night. The room in the house was wonderful -... More

Having visited the farm twice now, I can say that it offers a wonderfully quiet breakaway for those wanting to get out of town, or even those visiting the region for the first time. Staying in the chalet's are a must. They are well equipped, have exceptional views and enough privacy for those weekend getaways with the loved one. The... More

We ended up at Farm 215 through a friends recommendation. And we are so happy that we followed up. Farm 215 is a totally amazing place. Me and my friend had not planned it, but we ended up staying much longer than planned, hung out, went for long walks, read some books, took pictures, drank some excellent wines, had great... More

This is our second visit to Farm 215. We stayed in one of the Fynbos Suites again which have beautiful views across the Farm and down to the sea. The retreat is a lovely place to unwind - we walked and went horse riding as well as taking time out to explore the local area. The service is thoughtful and... More

Set against a hill amongst the fybos, Farm 215 is the perfect getaway spot for people seeking some peace and tranquility. This was our third visit and we stayed for 3 nights in one of the Fynbos Lodges, which are perfectly set into nature. With a huge window front all along the building, the design of the Fynbos Lodges facilitates... More

Although Farm 215 is actually fairly close to Gansbaai, you really feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, with gorgeous views and no shortage of peace and quiet. The Fynbos chalets are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the meals, nice variety for breakfast and both the set 3 course dinners were fabulous but let them know... More

we spent 2 nights on farm 215 , with all weathers one can imagine within 48 hours. Sunny day on spectacular Walker Bay beaches , nature walks through fynbos on the farm, accompanied by rough weather. In any case we had a very good time with fynbos-passionate owner Martin,who introduced us to the world of these rare and ancient plants... More

I was in search of fynbos and found it here Walks and rides Wonderful infinity type pool for swimming very friendly large rooms and if your budget does not rise to the units that are free standing then the main house is just great may be a bit hot in the height of summer

No word or image can fully describe the overwhelming yet soothing feeling that we got when we stepped into our cabin placed in the middle of this gorgeous area. We felt like we were in a magazine editorial yet it wasn't glossy or commercial in any way. The owner and the staff have both feet on the ground with a... More

What and awesome place if you are looking to take time out of your hectic city life to just get away from it. Farm 215 is a unique and special place to be found nestled on the slopes over looking the sea not far from Gansbaai. You have choice of staying an eco lodge, which we did, of which there... More
