We stayed for just one night at the lovely Farmhouse on our way south to Luederitz but would happily stayed for longer. After driving for a few hours through the dry countryside it is lovely to be suddenly surrounded by greenery, flowers and birds and listen to the wind in the palm trees.
And that is only the beginning of a wonderful stay. The cottages are quaint, on the small side but very comfortable. The bathroom is semi-open (at the top) but it does the trick, and the shower is good.
Dinner was delicious and very imaginative, and the service impeccable all round.
The small shop deserves a special mention because it's so nicely laid out and full of lovely merchandise a bit outside the normal spread.
The Farmhouse is some way away from Mariental, so it's a considerable detour if you are stopping over going from North to South but I will go the extra mile any day to stay there again.More
