“We had an absolutely great stay. This place is a little piece of heaven. Rustic yet sophisticated was a real treat. Our son had a wonderful time enjoying the farm. Milking cows at 5 in the morning to fishing and beautiful walks on the farm. The rooms are very well decorated with everything you need. The Deli food was delicious and well worth using. We would recommend this as 5 stars and will hopefully be back one day.” – Flyer TripAdvisor.

What a great place to stay at, it is a must for anyone driving through EG looking for some stylish, relaxing and friendly accommodating. Our hosts took us around the farm on the back of the bakkie (so much fun) and told us all about the entertaining history of the area. We just loved our stay and will be sending all our family members to enjoy the Ranch.” – David TripAdvisor.
