We were totally surprised by ending up on a farm. What a warm and lovely welcome we got from Liesel. Spending a night in this beautiful house was amazing. We got lots of info on the Jersey cows, helped feed the calves, I even got to give Lammie a bottle & helped inseminate 2 cows. So not what we expected...

We stayed for one night and found this a very relaxing place to stay. Liesel is a wonderful host. We had dinner and breakfast at the farm stay - both were great. The Farm Story has three rooms and we were very happy that the third room had not been booked so we had the place to ourselves. Unfortunately we...

We stayed at A Farm Story for 2 nights in June with our toddler. Although the house is not ideal for young kids, the host made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to accommodate us. She even entertained our son so that we can have breakfast! We did the wine and cheese tasting and really enjoyed...

This was one of the best Bed and Breakfast experiences we have ever had. Liesel was very helpful and informative about the cottage and the farm. The accommodation was beautifully restored and very comfortable. Wonderful to see the cows being milked and to see their cheese factory the following morning. Excellent value for money.

One's first impression is one of serenity. The welcome we received from Liesel was like that of an old friend.. One felt at home and that set the standard of our stay.. The house was like a step back in time and one could appreciate how it must have been years ago - except for the modern additions. All the...

After having to cancel 3 previous wedding anniversary celebrations, my wife and I were finally able to take a short road trip. A farm story, is one of those places you visit once and know almost immediately you will return to time and time again. Their attention to detail, kindness and determination to offer outstanding service ensured a memorable experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Farm Story was born from a tradition that believes that a story speaks to the soul and the heart. History and fond memories were transferred into a country house in 2008. We invite you to experience an old Farmhouse Story. Historical points: The Country House was originally known as "Oom Tom se huis" . The country house was established in the early 1800's on the farm Klein Soebattersvlakte. During the most southern battle (Anglo boer war 1901) the stables were used as a hospital. The first ever gravel road between Riversdale and Stilbaai was built on the farm and is still in use today. The famously known store "Oom Boet se Winkel" was the only general dealer in the 1900's. What awaits you: Today's accommodation in yesterday's style and traditional hospitality. Braai facilities. Guided tour to the cheese factory on the farm, including cheese tasting. Taking part in all the farming activities on this working farm (weather permitting). Included in your stay of 2 nights and more (by appointment):· Make your own traditional, handmade cheese in our cheese factory· Take part in the process, and take your cheese home with you to mature and enjoy! ... more   less
