      A warm welcome and beautiful smile from Yverne is the first thing you receive when entering the gate. Her hospitality is genuine and so welcome after a long day on the road. Dinner is top notch and the cottage is cosy and comfortable, with all the comforts of home . Take a long walk in the veld and experience the night sky as you will never see it in the big city. A definite recommendation for anyone looking for a stop over on the N1.

      A lovely stay on a Free State farm away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hostess was charming and warm and prepared a lovely dinner and served it to us in our chalet. An overall great experience and would certainly stay there again.

      We stayed on our way home from Sedgefield. Yverne was most hospitable and friendly and made our stay an absolute pleasure. Her dinner too was far better than other overnight stays that we have experienced and we will certainly visit again as soon as we travel down to the Cape at the end of the year.

      Yverne made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The lovely open garden and pool area were very welcome in the summer heat, the accommodation was comfortable and clean and the attention to detail was great (such as separate towels for the pool). The cherry on top was the delicious dinner! This will definitely be our halfway stop when we take our next trip to the Cape!
