What a wonderful place to unwind. We could not get into Mountain Zebra so chose Lowlands and decided to use it as a base. However, we loved it so much we didn't budge. Our room was very comfortable and the House is just ideal, Best of all however was the yummy food and the hospitality we received from Ann and... More

The food, the setting, the hosts, the rooms and bedding ... All was just perfect. The food was delicious with Anne and Dave complimenting the meal with their hosting. We went for a short walk around the farm yard with Dave in the morning which was very informative and the kids love the sheep and other farm animals.

What a lovely find! The rooms are very comfortable, Dave and Ann are wonderfully warm and engaging and the food was outstanding. I would recommend Lowlands as a place to explore the Karoo from or as a stop-over on your way to the coast. It's close to lots of places of interest such as Mountain Zebra Park and they have...

We arrived on the 28/12/2014 to stay at Lowlands - we had managed to get a last minute booking for 5 days. Driving off the road, you could feel yourself relaxing more and more. We were greeted warmly by Dave and shown to our cottage- Dower Cottage. It was fantastic to find that there is no cell phone signal at... More

This is great stop over point for you trip to the Garden Route.David & Ann where extremely hospitable and the food was excellent. As this is a working farm you get to experience what living on a farm is like. I would recommend this as an over night or short stay destination.

During our 4-week trip through South Africa this was one of the nicest places we stayed. Thanks to Anne and Dave for their great hospitality! We enjoyed the peaceful tranquility and the beautiful surroundings. Definitely a recommendation for that area.

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing stop over at Lowlands Country House, the perfect start to our holiday at the coast. Wonderful home cooked roast lamb for dinner was a highlight as we the relaxing conversation over breakfast with the owners. Very enjoyable stay, we will be back.

We stopped at Lowlands on our drive to the Cape. It is well-worth the side trip off the main road. The food was wonderful and the setting was lovely. The rooms are comfortable and the fell is welcoming. You get a taste of the Karoo lamb and the Karoo life. The owners are friendly and full of information about the... More
