Accommodation

All our units have spectacular views across the Caledon River to Lesotho and the near and far distant majestic Maluti Mountains. All units are self-catering with braai facilities and fitted with inside fireplaces and outdoor fire-pits. The farm’s historical buildings were transformed into chalets that today offer the comforts of modern living without sacrificing the charm of yester year. Carved from the same sandstone that gave birth to the towering mountains of the Kingdom of Lesotho, the chalets are in perfect harmony with their spectacular surroundings. With accommodation for 72 guests we also offer group bookings for celebrations, conferences and workshops.
Children and pets welcome – It’s farm living.
