Stay in one of our characterful self-catering cottages situated in the natural beauty of a peaceful working fynbos farm in the Sandies Glen, surrounded by wonderful mountain views and a river running through it.

Enjoy all that a country life has to offer –  star-gazing, nature hikes, mountain biking, swimming in a private dam and interacting with our gentle herds of animals.  We offer a variety of experience packages.

The Dancing Horse workshops can improve your self-esteem, problem-solving, communication and leadership skills. Horses are wonderfully effective in bringing us powerful and clear self-realisations and growth.

Taste the deliciousness of fresh, organically grown veggies.  We grow exquisite proteas which are sold both locally and for export.  Our goat’s milk cheese-making workshops offer small groups the experience of creating their own cheese.

60 mm’s of rain! An Amble around Farm and Fynbos

It is raining at Laughing Waters Farm. Delighted! During a brief pause in precipitation I Ieap from the house, happy to momentarily escape our pent-up kids and attention seeking cats. A frog gives me a jump, hopping across my foot. The rain soaks into the crackled grass.
