                  A lovely farmstyle accommodation on the outskirts of Maclear, with very comfortable rooms and extremely hospitable hosts. Ample parking, all facilities needed, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. The self catering facilities shared by guests is also excellent, with stunning views across the valley and onto the mountains.

                  Our group of 6 throughly enjoyed our overnight stay. Great facilities, very friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Value for money. Recommended.

                  My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here on two separate occasions. Out on a farm with views of the forest and mountains brings with it peace and quiet. Put your feet up and relax as the world passes by uninterrupted by the hustle and bustle of every day life. Our host Deon was friendly and cheerful which made the stay that much more enjoyable. Dinners are home cooked cuisine in the good old farm tradition and well worth it. Make sure you book dinner if you plan to stay. We will definitely stay there again should the opportunity present itself.
