There were 6 of us, 3 adults and 3 kids. The kids had an absolutely amazing time, whilst usually they dont stop whining about TV, this weekend they did not ask even once...I don't think they even saw there was a TV. The adults managed to get a break and relax as the atmosphere was so calm and peaceful. The...

Ideal for families with young kids from 1 until 6 but also older as you can walk, do donkey carriage or tractor, ride horses at the nearby farm, enjoy the heated pool, feed the farm animals, play on the different playgrounds. Squirrel Nest is lovely and...

I honestly cannot imagine any other way that we would've wanted to spend our weekend away. The surroundings are beautiful, our cottage was perfect - very cosy - and we sure enjoyed the extended braai area on both evenings. Being surrounded by nature and pure tranquillity, is the best way to take a breather from the very busy city life....

We spent the weekend at Thabametsi with our 3 and 1 year old grandchildren. The weather was rainy and we had no idea what to expect. On arrival we were introduced to the staff member who would "look after" us for the weekend and that is where the magic began. We were invited to feed the chickens, ducks and a...

I enjoyed my time on Thabametsi farm just walking for hours and enjoying the quietness of the surrounding and the beauty of the nature. The 3 cottages (living room, bedroom/kitchen and bedroom) were as described in the ad. They were clean and quiet. The only negative point was the flooding of 2 of the cottages due to several days of...
