Vorstershoek Farm Accommodation
The charming self catering country style cottage is situated between Lady Grey and Barkly East and it has panoramic views of kilometres that is absolutely breath taking. It gives one the feeling of that you are looking into the future.
All the way driving there from any direction it offers outstanding views that are unique of this area.
The beauty of this place/farm is that it is a holiday destination, because of its, unique site in a spacious typical Magazine style garden with outstanding features, walks, dams and pure nature.

It is ideally en-route only a 110 km before the popular town of Rhodes where our only SA snow-ski resort, Ben MacDui is situated.
