"Had a great rest, away from the maddening crowd but close enough to sights like Robberg trails for some exercise and Harkerville Saturday Market for fresh produce and many other stops along the N2. Great shower that gives you the feel you are showering in the trees. Separate toilet. Well appointed kitchen. And great bed! Friendly staff. What more could you ask for? Thank you Boschrivier Farm!" - Debbie (Tripadvisor)
