We went there to do some horseriding and would have been content with any reasonable lodging. We did NOT get that, we got a cottage better than a five star hotel (yes, I've been to some)!!! Two bedrooms, two huge showers, kitchen with sitting room , everything where you need it! It's self catering if you wish, but Heidi cooked... More

We spent 5 nights in a cottage which was very well appointed and luxurious. The setting and scenery at Doornbosch are breathtaking. The kiddies thoroughly enjoyed the animals and collecting eggs on the farm. Thank you to Heidi and Bertie for their wonderful hospitality - we hope to visit Doornbosch soon again.

A very special place. Riding was the highlight. Wonderful cooked breakfasts and a view to die for. Don't be put off by the long drive to the B&B. It's a stunning drive and not too far from lunch in Franchoek and De Hoop ( a perfect place for an Indian Ocean swim). For our boys ages 10 and 12, they... More

Doornbosch is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a riding holiday! Heidi is a fantastic guide, and her horses are wonderful. They are horses that every rider would enjoy - from beginner to advanced. I had the best time exploring the farm from horseback, and saw a lot of game and lovely flowers. I stayed in... More

We stayed 6 nights at Doornbosch and we came mainly for riding. We stayed in the Guesthouse and we liked everything. Got up early in the morning before sunrise every day and went out riding with Heidi and also with Jane and Mike, from the neighbor farm. The farm provides sufficient area even for the long time we stayed. Heidi... More

We had an excellent 3-day stay in the Koude Rivier Cottage, which is located near the owner’s house, on the farm opposite of Doornbosch. Although the road to get to the farm is rough and the farm is very secluded, it is well worth the drive if you are looking for quietness and a true South African farm experience. Heidi,... More

Stayed for one night for a 50th Birthday weekend. All my expectations exceeded. Spacious, luxurious, beautiful - just perfect. To Bertie and his wife, you guys made us all feel at home. You have the best homemade organic honey. Thank you very much. We will be back. My only regret.........staying only one night......and purchasing only one jar of honey!!

We stayed for two nights at Doornbosch, in the Overburg region. Our drive from Napier was certainly interesting - tarmac gave way to dirt roads, and we drove through some remote countryside to finally arrive at the imposing gates. We were a bit worried by how remote it actually was, but needn't have worried. It's actually a great location for... More
