Our beach ride with the African Horse Company was incredible. Howard was more than accommodating with my questions and our change of day last minute. As a very novice rider i was worried about 3 hours in the saddle but the gentle pace was perfect and the horses knew what they were doing. We went from Grootbos Private Nature Reserve... More

We had a lovely, peaceful couple of nights staying in the downstairs suite in the main homestead - very spacious, with a fantastic double shower in the bathroom, and access to a private garden. It was great to be able to wander along the trail up the hill through the Fynbos. The food was good, and there was a selection... More

On the side of a hill, in an amazing fynbos reserve is Farm 215. Wonderful views, peaceful, quiet and beautiful, and well worth a visit. the rooms are unexpectedly modern, but are comfortable. During the day there are plenty of activities to keep you busy, or just chill by the long pool.

The fynbos suites are light and airy with magnificent views across the valley, a view you can sit on the deck and stare for hours at. I love that they are completely off-grid, so this is a real getaway with a conscience, especially as the rare and important fynbos is protected by the conservation status of the land. Do yourself...

Two nights in the Homestead at Farm 215 was a perfect way to end a week-long break with our two young boys. Situated in the Uilkraal Valley between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Overberg; a 20 km drive from the fishing town of Gansbaai, Farm 215 is a serene nature retreat & fynbos reserve.

Farm 215 is paradise found! The Fynbos Suites are absolutely amazing, and such good value for money. Imagine waking up with uninterrupted views of fynbos, vineyards and the ocean at the horizon! It's far enough to feel like you are completely isolated, and walks or horse rides in the reserve is a perfect getaway from it all. But it's close... More

An awesome destination, or perhaps an awesome 'retreat' within a private nature reserve. The eco-friendly units overlook a vast expanse of natural fynbos, mountains and the ocean in the distance. Well-appointed units with luxury furnishings and absolute privacy.

After driving a farm road for few miles we arrived to a true retreat of serenity and pure nature. We stayed at one of the Fynbos suites which provided even more privacy and amazing views to the valley that we had hoped for. The suite was really high-quality and naturally with eco-twist.
