Farmyard Party: Holmeleigh Farmyard, it’s a fantastic kids party venue

Organising a fun and memorable kiddie’s party is no easy matter and most parents look on these events with trepidation. Planning, co-ordinating and arranging a party is not only expensive, but also very time consuming.

My advice, and I speak with experience, having four daughters, is to hand the party over to a professional and one of the best party venues and co-ordinators is to be found at Holmeleigh Farmyard, which is situated along Grey Dawn Road in Kragga Kamma Park, Port Elizabeth.

This venue has been around for many years with many parents of today remembering Holmeleigh Farm with fond memories from when they were younger.

Holmeleigh Farmyard offers an affordable party package, which includes all activities and catering. Of course, the big draw card is the animals, many of which can be touched, held or ridden.

Even as an adult, I have enjoyed walking through the farm and watching my kids run from one animal enclosure shouting with excitement.

Tourism in the Spotlight: Holmeleigh Farm in Port Elizabeth

The farmyard is neat and tidy and everything is provided from bowls of animal feed to a hand washing facility. After cuddling, petting and being licked by such an array of animals this last feature is vital!

Holmeleigh Farmyard’s party package includes the exclusive use of one of their party venues, feed for the farm animals, a pony/tractor ride, full access to the playground and jumping castle, a party-pack filled with chips, chocolates, loose sweets and a Liquifruit as well as the assistance of a party guide!

As parents, your only concern is to bring the cake and any special decorations that you want to use to enhance the already pleasant environment.

The venue is easily accessible, has ample parking and, in the case of bad weather, the fun and games can continue under weather-proof roofs.

As one mom explained; “The party guide will help you coordinate your party and keep the kiddies entertained, while you take all the credit – even as you relax in the Tea Garden or stroll through Holmeleigh Farm’s lovely gift shop”.

So, call Holmeleigh Farmyard for your next kiddies party and relax, it’s in safe hands. Call 041 379 2901 today or visit for more information.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
