The Funny Farm Shire offers a peaceful country retreat, situated next to the wetlands of the Garden Route National Park, overlooking Langvlei Lake. This eight hectare farm offers comfortable accommodation in two cottages resonating The Lord of the Rings theme in the buildings and farm surroundings.

There are two cottages, The Homely Home and The Hobbits House. These professionally built cob houses are built with indigenous wooden window frames, doors and counters. Each house sleeps four people, is fully equipped for self-catering, and is enclosed with a fence and gate, making it ideal for families with children or pets.

The farm has a forest walk for the young ones where they can explore Gollum’s Den, or make a wish at Gandalf’s Wishing Well. Guest can explore the eight hectares of elevated, thick indigenous forest and beautiful views of the lakes below.

We had a lovely time at Funny Farm Shire. The owners were welcoming and friendly and we especially enjoyed ambling along the Lonely Mountain Trail for a picnic. The quaint cob house was pet friendly, so our dog had a wonderful time too!
