Warmly greeted by John Ross who gave us the brief on all we needed to know about the farm area/options. We hit a slightly windy period so did not take advantage of pool or outdoor cooking area but the cooker was well up to the limited tasks that we set it. Plenty of solar powered hot water for the shower... More

Having friends who stayed at Petersfield some time ago it had been on my 'to do' list for a while. We chose Stonehaven Cottage as we needed isolation and quiet after a hectic year and this was the first 4 nights of our holiday. We arrived at dusk and were welcomed warmly at the main house reception and given directions... More

Petersfield is popular and after trying for about 3 years to get the dates we wanted, we finally made it! It was a special occasion for us, made especially special by this very well run, unique and lovely place. LOCATION: On the N7 just north of the Citrusdal turnoff. There is a filling station diagonally across the road boasting a... More

We had 3 fantastic days in Stonehaven. This very well equipped cottage is a perfect place for 2. One should bring the food with, although Citrusdal with it's market and nice restaurant is only 15 minutes away. The cottage has beautiful views on the sorrounding mountains, but the house itself cann't be seen from the other cottages. Short walk away... More

We really did not know what to expect but on reading up about this place we wanted to try it. We had initially confirmed for 2 nights and we ended up staying 3 nights and would have done more of it was possible. Absolute heaven in a citrus farm. John and Hedley were wonderful hosts and were only too happy... More

We stayed in Dassieklip with our two dogs. The cottage is a lovely size and is equipped with everything you could need. The dogs LOVED exploring around the cottage but the fencing is not sturdy enough to keep them in the cottage property which did make me a bit nervous. The walks on the farm are super and the dogs...

Petersfield was our first stop on our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. We felt right at home with a warm welcome from an amazing host, John Ross! The peaceful environment was blissful with a private little pool and even a lovely victorian style bathtub outside for those who want to take a romantic bath under the stars! The road to... More

We stayed in De Kom, a mixed group of family & friends and 3 dogs. We spent a lot of time in the pool keeping the heat at bay, otherwise relaxing outside around the table playing boardgames and enjoying cold drinks and braai-ing. A very relaxing environment to get away from it all, and a great forced break from technology... More
