Old Mill Drift Guest Farm takes great pride in the rich history that lies in the farm’s beginnings. Owner, Yvonne, plans to restore the farm to it’s former glory and re-invent the destination as a tourism “hot-spot” for couples, families, friends and even clubs and festivals.
The farm sports a collection of 5 chalets, 4 family lodges and ample grounds for camping and caravanning. Many of the original sandstone buildings still stand and guided walks through the farm are sure to reveal even more history!
