About Grootnek Guest Farm

Grootnek Guest Farm is situated in the Langkloof Valley along the scenic Cape Route 62 between Joubertina and Krakeel River. Resting in the heart of this scenic valley, Grootnek Guest Farm offers a unique accommodation experience for visitors to the Eastern Cape.

Guests can choose to enjoy their stay in the comfort of one of three quaint, self-catering, fully equipped cottages nestled amongst the orchards of this quiet and peaceful fruit farm. The Weskus Cottage, Karoo Cottage and the Bosveld Cottage each boast their own unique farm Jacuzzi. Expect comfortable simplicity during your stay as this guest farm offers the charm of the rustic coupled with the luxury of everyday comfort.

Each of the cottages on Grootnek Guest Farm is designed specially to cater to the guest's every need. The simplicity of farm life is complimented by the home comforts available in these charming cottages.

The Weskus, Karoo and Bosveld cottages each comprise an ample open plan living space including a dining area and kitchen. The Weskus and Karoo cottages have two bedrooms in each provide sleeping space for up to six guests while the Bosveld cottage has one double bedroom and additional flexible sleeping for up to four guests. The bathroom and kitchen in each cottage are fully equipped with hot running water from a gas geyser and gas appliances, including a fridge and stove.

Lamps and candles are provided to complete the natural ambience of a starlit evening spent on the outside patio and braai area, overlooking the orchards in complete and comfortable privacy from the outside world. Although the cottages provide the same facilities to guests, each is unique in its charm and appeal.

The cottages are supplied with gas appliances, while electricity is available elsewhere on the farm if needed.

Whether you enjoy complete relaxation or appreciating nature through outdoor activities, Grootnek Guest Farm offers the ideal opportunity to do both. From lounging in the farm Jacuzzi or watching 64 species of indigenous birdlife to horseriding and trail hiking, guests are invited to take part in a wide variety of activities on offer at the guest farm.

Grootnek Guest Farm has a host of activities to offer guests during their stay. Activities range from blissful relaxation to bushveld adventure.

So whether you want to simply take in the beautiful surroundings and untainted sunsets or explore the natural mountain fynbos on foot or horseback, you are sure to find your niche at Grootnek.
