You may be fortunate enough to see lambs pronking around in the field near to The Old Milkshed or a herd of Ngunis and calves grazing in the meadow. There is a private entrance and you will probably feel as though you are on
your own farm. However the main farm house and other cottages are within 50 meters behind the Old Milkshed.

Owners request no smoking in the establishment and no pets as the farm owners have their own pets on the premises. The farm does not have TV facilities, however there are numerous bars and lounges available in the town of Clarens for these purposes.
