*Guest Room with shared bathroom in a early 1900’s settlers period, rustic renovated farmhouse. Perfect for a stop over en-route through the eastern Cape, or a central point to explore the Sunshine Coast.
Own entrance from the front stoep through a cozy seating area (currently being renovated, guests are welcome to use the stoep which has a 4 seater picnic/pub bench), that leads to the spacious bedroom, furnished with our favorite Shirley Howells paintings, seating for two, a writing desk, Queen sized bed and *attached shared bathroom.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy a complimentary cup of organic grown lemon balm/mint tea and locally made rusks (or your own wine), with a book from a selection that includes amongst others, Golf Rules, How to Kill a Mockingbird, How to Kill your Husband, 10 000 Leagues Under the Sea, Khalil Gibran poetry, Local coffee table stories, Nat Geo, Home d.i.y and Yoga to name but a few, accompanied by one of the beautiful sunsets that can only be found in the South African Eastern Cape.
Alternatively if you are a ‘early bird’, you can tune into our local radio station, broadcasting courtesy of *Nature Waves WiFi Inc. Your ears will thank you for trading the sounds of morning rush hour city traffic to nature’s vibey selection of “rise and shine” jingles, performed by famous local feathered celebrities such as The Lingering Loeries, King Fisher Blues Brothers, Hackle my Hornbill and a personal favorite My Sweet Starling days. You might also spot wildebeest, nyala, zebra and mischievous should you choose to take a stroll on the “wild” side. Don’t forget your camera and comfy walking shoes..not crocs…shoes.
IS IT TRUE IS IT KIND IS IT NESSECCARY
Brought to fruition from the heart of farmer Jay, these are the measuring sticks of an all encircling living concept, that is at the heart of our journey with our rustic farm. Not only in our words, but in our actions towards ourselves, our fur and feathered friends and family, our visitors, and our Environment. The farm as a whole is a daily labour-of-love-never-ending work in progress, to restore, revive and maintain the long forgotten historic roots of the farm, using the original structures, fittings and natural resources and elements available. Nature is the driving force of the farm. We are solely dependent on rain water thus urge and encourage guests to be conscious of water usage.
The starry (*) stuff, SMALL print, and then some.
Bearing in mind that the access road leading to the farm is a 300m gravel road, one of these as well as suburban luxury low road clearance vehicles, especially during and after periods of rain (which are sporadic in our region), will be left stranded. Our donkeys are for comedic value, not for towing.
The Guest Bedroom and bathroom, although part of the main house is cordoned off, ensuring yours and the hosts privacy. Bathroom consists of Bath, Basin, Loo. Towels can be provided.
An additional Single bed is available.
The Rate – R200 is Per Single Person, Per Room, Per Night. R150p/p thereafter.
Should you have a/some friend/s in a tent (R50 p/p), bring your skottel and gas, we would love for you to share the experience of a breathtaking star filled sky that will no doubt render you speechless. Remember your telescope. Shooting stars are not shy, we suggest preparing a list of wishes.
OFFENDERS WILL BE COMPOSTED
Video did not kill the radio star on Ramblers farm. There is no television, this should explain how we feel about noise. Noise includes, hooting, loud music (anything with a rhythm faster than my heart rate is out of the question), screaming feral human children, barking fur children (We are pet friendly by arrangement only), and general bad vibrations emanating from a negative outlook on life.
Visitors are welcome to access the Free WiFi provided, to inform their relatives that they have found their spot of peace and quiet, and will be away for longer then expected.
Unless we have other bookings, we are not to fussed about your time of arrival or departure if kept within reason. You will soon realize the Bathurst clock ticks on its own version of “African time”
Tummy Rumbling? Meals can be arranged by Pre-Arrangement only.
Your booking will only be held upon confirmed receipt of a 50% Non Refundable payment via EFT.
