My wife and I stayed in the farm house on Doornbosch which is enormous. It is well furnished and equipped. It was the start of autumn, a bit wet and chilly but the underfloor heating was on, the fridge was primed with the essentials including their home produced organic honey - delicious, and the logs were ready and dry for the fire. Heidi gave us a lovely welcome. Serious money has been spent. It's a great place. Six of you should have a house party here. New smaller cottages are being finished, all to the same high standard as the main house. Fritz, the owner, gave us a marvellous tour of the whole property, with its buck, deer, zebra and eland and sensational views.
This was a top notch couple of days.
