Had an amazing 3 night stay in one of the Fynbos Suites. Secluded, peaceful and beautiful views all around. Love the fact that the owners of the farm are conservationists, and working towards rehabilitating endangered Fynbos flora of the region, and protecting the local wild animals. Horses roam freely in front of the suites, which makes a wonderful sunset experience!...

Our beach ride with the African Horse Company was incredible. Howard was more than accommodating with my questions and our change of day last minute. As a very novice rider i was worried about 3 hours in the saddle but the gentle pace was perfect and the horses knew what they were doing. We went from Grootbos Private Nature Reserve...

We had a lovely, peaceful couple of nights staying in the downstairs suite in the main homestead - very spacious, with a fantastic double shower in the bathroom, and access to a private garden. It was great to be able to wander along the trail up the hill through the Fynbos. The food was good, and there was a selection...

On the side of a hill, in an amazing fynbos reserve is Farm 215. Wonderful views, peaceful, quiet and beautiful, and well worth a visit. the rooms are unexpectedly modern, but are comfortable. During the day there are plenty of activities to keep you busy, or just chill by the long pool.

The fynbos suites are light and airy with magnificent views across the valley, a view you can sit on the deck and stare for hours at. I love that they are completely off-grid, so this is a real getaway with a conscience, especially as the rare and important fynbos is protected by the conservation status of the land. Do yourself...

We have spent a bit of time at Farm 215 over the years, as a family it has become one of our favourite places in the world.

Two nights in the Homestead at Farm 215 was a perfect way to end a week-long break with our two young boys. Situated in the Uilkraal Valley between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Overberg; a 20 km drive from the fishing town of Gansbaai, Farm 215 is a serene nature retreat & fynbos reserve.

Farm 215 is paradise found! The Fynbos Suites are absolutely amazing, and such good value for money. Imagine waking up with uninterrupted views of fynbos, vineyards and the ocean at the horizon! It's far enough to feel like you are completely isolated, and walks or horse rides in the reserve is a perfect getaway from it all. But it's close...
