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

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.
