After going to another place I visited before (2 the end) and was disappointed to find new ownership and no network I had to find other accommodation. Farmhouse Lodge was a great find. The premises is well kept, clean, quiet, luxurious and has excellent network signal. Only concern is no security where vehicles are parked and can easily be accessed... More

The family room was lovely and big with sitting area and fridge etc. The little garden outside the back door was perfect for our two small dogs who travel with us. The hosts were most welcoming and would definitely use them again. It is a great stop over en route from the Lowveld to KZN.

Our first time at Farmhouse Lodge and here are my thoughts. On the positive side: The location is peaceful and the property is well kept. The family room was very spacious and comprised off a double bed and two single beds for our kids. There was a small lounge area with a flatscreen TV with sufficient DSTV channels. There is... More

Dear Sanjay, many thanks for your review. We will keep your suggestions in mind. Unfortunately I never really saw you when I was there. The only times I saw you, you were always getting into the car and left. I suppose you were to busy with the wedding. Many thanks. All the best, Ralph More

We had a great time , when you need peace and quiet it's the place to stay. It's a home away from home. They have vety friendly staff ,clean and specious rooms. Ideal for bigger families and the prices are reasonable.

Visited farmhouse in Newcastle in February. We booked both a double room and a family room. The host and Hostess were pleasant and friendly. Unfortunately they were not prepared to provide us with breakfast. It was an average weekend, nothing really to write home about.

At the Farmhouse Lodge we use fresh ingredients every morning for our breakfasts.

We stayed for three nights. The room was lovely, the garden is like a park, we had a swim in the beautiful pool every morning and evening. Breakfast was top class too. I would highly recommend this establishment to others. Safe and peaceful spot to relax after a busy day.
