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

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

I adore Farm 215 anyway and this was not my first and will not be my last visit either. However, I want to praise Sam for preparing a proper & balanced vegetarian meal for me. Being vegetarian and living & travelling in South Africa is not always easy. More often than not, chefs seem to believe that a good vegetarian... More

I went on a 3-day, 4 night ride with the African Horse Company. We stayed at Farm 215 on the first and last night, a jewel of a place. The ride was an experience not to be missed. Footsure, willing, dependable horses, a wonderful guide who owns and runs the AFC, scenery of astounding beauty. Challenging and highly recommendable, another... More

Went on a two and a half hour ride with six friends and had a blast. This isn't your typical horse follow horse on a flat landscape. We went up hillsides, through streams and back down into the valleys. Never a dull moment as the scenery is breathtaking and the horsea love to trot. A must do when in town.

Thanks for a fabulous four night stay. Amazing scenery, great food and wonderful people. A unique, top-class place to visit which has inspired us in many ways. We enjoyed seeing the area and were inspired by the way that the farm combined luxury with environmental awareness and conservation. Horse riding was very fun. We learnt a huge amount from Maarten.... More

We actually came here in July 2011. Once again, we had a place almost to ourselves, the benefits of travelling in South African winter! Martin was an excellent host and provided a fine feast for the couple of nights we ate there. We wandered around the reserve one day, Martin had provided maps of the trails and a packed lunch....

During our honeymood we spent 3 days at the Farm: a warm welcome, yummie breakfast and excellent diners. We visited 10 accomodations during our 3 weeks-trip in South Africa. Farm 215 was the most remarkable. We did horseriding and walks at the fynbos: what silence, what flowers, what colours!! We had a room en suite with bathroom (2-persons shower!), own... More

We spent five days at Farm 215 in November 2012, and we could not have found a better place to stay. We were absolutely delighted by the gorgeous and impeccable premises, the stunning surroundings, the fine quality of the food and wine, and last but not least by the remarkable kindness, helpfulness and professionalism of the entire staff.
