We had an absolutely lovely stay at Oakhurst. Accomodation was beautiful, hosts were friendly and the dogs also provided company and comic relief. We also undertook some walks in the forest and it was beautiful. This is a true gem!

We stayed for three days during the October school holidays and it was undoubtedly the highlight of our stay. We stayed in the Forge, which according to the pictures on the website, looked very cramped but not once did we feel it's too small. In fact, the pictures don't even almost do the real deal any justice. Not only was...

Spent an enjoyable few days at Oakhurst Farm Cottages. Very pretty location with lots of interesting walks. Claire provided some very delicious yoghurt and fresh milk. The free range eggs went down well. Wood burner provided a warm glow, the weather during our visit was not the warmest so the fire was appreciated. An ideal site for those who enjoy...

It was an overall good stay. We liked the toy box in the house and our children is small so they loved it. We had a good walk through the forest and it was easy even for our 1 year old. The service was good we had a fire made and had yoghurt, eggs and milk delivered on our arrival...

My two sons and I had the most wonderful experience at Oakhurst Farm. From the welcome kindling for the fire to the daily fresh farm milk deliveries ("the best I have ever tasted", critiqued by my seven year old), our stay was a ten out of ten experience. Thank you, Jake and Claire, for your care and attention to detail....

This was our second stay at Oakhurst Farm Cottages. What an awesome farm with lots to do. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean. Myself and ouma spent some time on the big wooden deck in the sun reading our books after long walks on the farm. Lots for kids to do and gravel roads for riding bicycles. My...

Our two night stay at Oakhurst Farm Cottages was stunning! The cottages are comfortable and homely and well equipped. Needless to say, the farm and surroundings are absolutely beautiful! What we loved the most was undoubtedly the fact that board games, card games, walks in the forest, canoeing on the dam and good old fashioned bonding time were the order...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This 150 year old stone cottage was one of the first building to be built at Oakhurst and today is the main bedroom, with thick stone walls and exposed timber beams. The living area wraps around the cottage and is made up of a dining area, equipped kitchen with gas stove and cosy lounge area. The entire side of the building can be opened up, by way of canvas roller blinds to maximise the spectacular forest views from here.The Forge sleeps two in a double bed, with two extra kiddies beds on a mezzanine in the loft. A central log fireplace takes the chill away during the Garden Route winters. The open-air shower and bathroom offer the same breathtaking views onto the forest fringe.Each cottage is privately positioned and fully set up for self-catering, with a well equipped kitchen and cozy living area with wooden floors. The living are in turn opens out onto a large wooden deck and braai area. This is the spot where you can either enjoy a good meal around the large wooden table or simply enjoy some of Oakhurst’s fine mountain air while getting stuck into a good book.Each cottage has three bedrooms (One double and two twins) and sleeps up to 6 people. There is a central bathroom with shower. Garden Route winters can be cold, and a fire roaring in the kitchen’s woodburning stove sets the perfect atmosphere for farm winters.Ideal for families, a group of friends or even larger groups ... more   less

“If you stay at the Forge and have your kids with you, take a torch or a little touch light for them in the upstairs little loft level as we didn't seem to find a light that was accessible once you were up the ladder and it can be a bit dark and scary, not to mention precarious when you trying to negotiate the ladder to go to the toilet.”
