THE FARMSTEAD - Natures orchestra surrounds you, listen. Its in the wind, rain and river as it gurgles past. Listen, it’s in the silence of the sun and the moon, the owls and the cows too. Hear this orchestra inviting you within our Earth of connection. A forgotten land, back, share our journey of growing a Farmstead. WHERE GOOD THINGS GROW - Full equipped and ready for you with kitchen, linen, furnishings, outside fireplaces, En-suite and outside bathrooms to bath under the stars. Verandas to sit, paths to walk, children to explore, yoga to downward dog, cows to moo, mountains to gaze, and if you want food in a basket on your doorstep.
Moved our growing family onto the farm in 2017. A forgotten piece of land which found us and inspired us to live closer to the earth and nature. We have started to build a farmstead and share our journey by renovating some old cottages next to a magnificent river.
The immediate farm offers extensive natural vegetation and farm walks for all ages. Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and the surrounding area, offers magnificent restaurants and wine farms, walking, cycling and many other outdoor activities. Farmstead Directions - We are on a farm and do require a bit of adventure to get to us. We have a summer entrance, Two Rivers West Gate. From Cape Town turn off the N1 onto the R45 towards Franschhoek 14km before Franschhoek opposite the Motor Museum is Two Rivers West Gate when there has been little or no rain and the low water bridge is passable. The Winter Gate - is Two Rivers EAST Gate if the Berg river has a lot of water after winter rains - or you don’t want to cross the low water bridge. Which is an additional 10km from West Gate - Carry on 5km on the R45 towards Franschhoek. Pass the motor museum on your right, then Bridge house, then the Berg River big bridge, then turn immediately left after the big bridge (10meters after bridge). To the Two Rivers East Gate, then drive 5km through the farms to the The Farmstead.
