We loved every minute of our stay. The location is amazing,' far away' from everything, you are in the middle of nature; while being looked after so well by Mary and Grant. They are wonderful, their attention to detail is incredible. The food is delicious too and you all eat together; we made lovely friends. There is lots of walking to do, or swimming in the river or pond. Our son loved it too (3yrs). we stayed at one of the family cottage's and their views are breath taking. Stay at least 2 nights if not 3 cause you'll regret it otherwise! Best place of our 3 weeks SA trip. family: 2 adults, 3yr old and 5 months old. ps. the swartberg pass towards Prince Albert is a great drive.
