Has become an annual pilgrimage with our children and friends in the outlying cottages. Peaceful, stunning countyside, walks and on the edge of the Grootvadersbosch reserve. John and Miranda are great. Bedding, gas stove, fridge etc. Basic but perfect for time without wifi and children's gadgets!

i was planning to camp, but when i saw the "rest camp" which is like a small barn built on the ruins of the original farmhouse, i decided to camp indoors - no electricity, no cellphone reception :), no modcons, but clean and wonderfully peaceful. Although this is ideally suited to a group of hikers or bikers, it was perfect for a a few days of solitude. There are various other types of accommodation, but i guess the pick are the two converted woodcutters cottages - each has magnificent views, secluded and comfortably appointed for a quiet few days away from the city to walk, cycle or just watch the bird life from the balcony. The hosts, John and Miranda Moodie are warm and hospitable - make sure you buy some of Miranda's delicious home-made goodies and John's natural honey before you leave. Will definitely be a repeat visitor

We were 2 couples and shared the 2 joined but separate Coral and Quince cottages (named after the tress outside each one) over New Year's eve 2016. It was a fabulous stay of 3 nights. We were able to share in the fun of New years Eve with the family, the kids and all the dogs too. Drove down into the Grootvadersbosch conservancy, which was totally spectacular, watched the 4x4 farm bakkies taking hay down for the many horses, swam in the cool mountain pool, braaied at the cottage with lovely dry gum wood, loaded for each cottage. Next day explored Barrydale, and had some very welcome cool misty rain which carried on throughout the night, and gave an ethereal feel to the farm high up above the scenic valley.Cool wet night led us to cook inside and enjoy a family evening with bookjs and games, around the cosy fire in large soft armchairs. Just like home! Easy comfortable place to stay with soft beds, fluffy towels, quiet dark nights and star filled skies, and hot water in the showers.Would love to come back to read, sleep, ride mountain bikes, and horses,early morning runs through the forest, braai and just chill in the peacefulness. Thanks John and Miranda for your warm and friendly hospitality. Feels like we've known you for ever!

We were 2 couples on a birdwatching trip and were privileged to spend just the one night here in the 3 bedroomed cottage. Yes the facilities are rather basic, and the decor rather worn but somehow it all adds to the charm. Miranda and John are the most warm, welcoming and eccentric of hosts. It was a delight to spend an evening around their dinner table enjoying Miranda's homecooking and John's wine choice. Honeywood Farm is an outstanding location, and for visitors like us from overseas it is somewhere that will remain in our memories forever

A tranquil and relaxing location - made us feel like we were on top of the world. We'd originally booked Coral cottage but when we arrived late, in the rain, we were offered the lovely Laila's cottage. My daughter was excited that it was the same as her name. The cottage was more like a house - 3 bedrooms and fully equipped. Felt like stepping back in time - the decor was special. Particularly enjoyed all the old books, and the beds were deliciously comfy. A walk in the forest and mountain bike trail was our exercise for the weekend and the rest of the time we switched off and relaxed completely. Our hosts were lovely. Will definitely be back again.
