Stay in one of our characterful self-catering cottages situated in the natural beauty of a peaceful protea growing fynbos farm in the Sandies Glen / Sondagskloof, surrounded by wonderful mountain views and with 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.

Horses are wonderfully effective in bringing us powerful and clear self-realisations and supporting change.  The Dancing Horse workshops can deepen your personal and professional wellbeing, strengthening your mindfulness, self-esteem, communication and leadership ability.

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