Lovely farm set in stunning countryside near Heidelberg run by a friendly couple and serving great food. A free early morning farm tour and local port is included. Highly recommended. The best b&b we stayed at outside Cape Town. Can get busy and guests all sit at one large table so good for those seeking company but less so for couples seeking privacy. Tip – signed from N2 road.

Situated on high, open, rolling terrain you experience the feeling of freedom and being kind of alone with no neighbour in sight. Skeiding is a working grain, sheep, ostrich and Nguni farm … close to the N2 and halfway (250 km) between Cape Town and Knysna. This makes us the ideal stopover.
