“Unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stayed at the Pinetree Cottage with our two granddaughters (4 & 5) and if 5yr old Madison's comment is anything to go by "Ma, this is the best holiday of my whole life!" then that says it all. I would highly recommend the tractor ride, but ensure you have made a booking as it fills up very fast. The scenery was superb as we had snow on top of the mountain and our granddaughters simply loved it. I would go back in summer as I would love to experience all it has to offer then.

I love Nature and walking but do not have the capacity to hike mountain trails. The tractor ride up into the Langeberg Mountains through beautiful Protea plantations was stunning. I saw some Proteas I didn't know existed. Also saw some stunning rock formations.The views of the Koo Valley and dams below showed the richness of the area. At our first stop we had some fruit fresh from the farm. When we reached the summit the Town of Robertson was visible on the other side.
On the third stop we were surprised with some dried fruit and dainties and some warming muscadel. The potjiekos (three different pots), lovely baked breads and jams, coffee and desserts at the end of the ride was welcoming. It is a trip well worth taking. Thank you Pierre and staff for your hospitality

“Fantastic views and scrumptious lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

The ride on the tractor with its trailer can accommodate about 30 people. The ride up the mountain is very interesting as you pass different varieties of protea and other indigenous plants. Fresh apples and pears are available for guests on the ride. The host stops a few times and provides interesting information on the mountains, the valey and plant life. Travellers are treated to a stop at a mountain cottage, where they can take a bathroom break and are served juice, Muscadel and dried fruit from the area. After a shorter ride down the mountain, a fantastic potjiekos lunch is served in the woods (different meat potjies/stews, vetkoek, home-baked bread, coffee on the fire, fruit salad). The hosts kindly catered for my vegetarian preference with a separate veggie potjie (arranged upon reservation). A short walk back to the parking area is essential after the lovely lunch.

Fantastic views from the mountain and a lovely lunch!

Thank you for a lovely time with the tractor ride and the potjie kos afterwards. We enjoyed it so much. The people were friendly and everything was well organised. A trip worth while taking.

“Mountain tractor drive and Briar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We with friends who had not experience the exceptional value for money combination of a Mountain tractor drive through some of the most beautiful countryside with great views. After or before you can enjoy a superb barbecue with so much to eat and drink. The whole experience takes about 4-5hours but is so memorable, you will want to return. Booking is essential. The cost per person for both is 190 rand (£16)
