Ebbie & Minette Hattingh invite you to a delightful farm experience at the Mooivlei Guest Farm. 
The Hattinghs moved to Mooivlei 2 years ago, with the dream to develop the beautiful sandstone ruins into a guest farm where visitors from all over can come and find rest from the busyness of life. The two cottages, dating back 60 years and now newly refurbished, have a stunning view towards the Lady Grey mountains, and what a delight to visitors when the sheep graze the fields right next to the cottages. 

The location:
Mooivlei Guest Farm is situated between Aliwal North & Lady Grey in the Eastern Cape, and only 8km off the R58.  
From Aliwal it is a 30 minute drive and a mere 20min drive from the lovely town of Lady Grey. 

The Facilities:
We offer you 2 very comfortable and homely stone cottages which are fully furnished and consist of an open plan bedroom, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a gas stove/gas oven unit and electrical fridge with a freezer compartment. Cooking and eating utensils are provided. There is a separate bathroom with bath and shower in Cottage 1, and a shower in Cottage 2. Cottage 1 is suitable for a family of 4 where the 2 kids sleep on a double decker bed. It also has a Carport attached. Both units are furnished with a fire pot to create a very snug and cosy interior in the winter times. The combination of solid timber floors, thick sandstone walls and insulated roofs produce a very comfortable room temperature. With nature on your door step and so many exciting things to do, we have not fitted the units with television. There is however excellent Wi-Fi available. Please ask for data package prices. 

What’s on offer:
For the nature lovers and adventure seekers there are many things to do. After a good rain season the Eendracht Dam pushes up to 1km in length and provides hours of fun canoeing and bird watching. We are very proud of our diverse collection of water birds, and have recently identified breeding pairs of Whiskered Terns. The farm offers many gravel roads for mountain biking, hiking and jogging. In the veld we have frequent sightings of Secretary Birds, Mahems, Ludwig’s Bustards and the very special Burchell’s Courser. 

Specialities:
Minette is a self-taught photographer and delights in taking family portraits in the beautiful scenery of the farm. A perfect way to capture special memories when on holiday. She also practices architecture from their farm home, and had great fun in designing every detail of the units. Most of the furniture and cupboards were custom designed and locally produced in Lady Grey. 

Lifestyle & Life Vision
The Hattinghs strive to live as light as possible and as green as practical. They produce their own organic vegetables and all meat produced is off the veld and natural.  Visitors can order Mutton and seasonal jams and bottled dishes are for sale when in stock. 

What’s happening in close vicinity?
You will find restaurants and grocery stores in Aliwal North. In Lady Grey you will come across delightful coffee shops and artist studios. The closest Airport will be in Bloemfontein 250km off. Guests do their own travelling to and from the farm. 
There are many opportunities for trout fishing in the area, and the 4x4 enthusiast has 8 different passes to choose from within a 1km radius.

Lady Grey is known for the annual Lammergeier race in September, as well as the extreme Sky Run mountain race in November. Then there is the outstanding Passion Play production held every Easter weekend. The local church and the legendary Lady Grey Arts Academy present a very creative and touching play starting the Friday and ending the Sunday.
