We stayed in a cabin that overlooked the lake, and I must say that some of the other reviewers seemed to be expecting a hotel room, not a cabin on a lake! The cabin was a little draughty (October) but the log fire and electric blanket more than compensate. We were offered the option of a room in the main house ( if we were too cold ) on check in, but once we had seen the cabin we were hooked. The staff were really helpful, sorting out a meerkat walk and a local restaurant for dinner on the second night. Food at the farm was great, the ostrich pie was just delicious! Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. The breakfast buffet was self service, with a hot breakfast served to the table. The day we went on the meerkat walk they served us at 11.00am, well outside the call of duty!! The cabin was very peaceful, and the views stunning. We had no problems with the dawn chorus, what else would you expect in such a location? Would definately return.
