About Blanco Guest Farm and Holiday Resort

Tucked away at the foot of the Winterberg Mountains, just outside Tarkastad, Blanco Guest Farm and Holiday Resort is one of the Eastern Capeís best-kept secrets.

Blanco is an old fashioned family holiday the way it should be, offering unpretentious country-style comfort and hospitality in the Eastern Cape interior. It is a place thatís always ready to remind you what holidays are all about. Allow Chris and Kim to welcome you to Blanco and experience country-style hospitality.


Blanco Cottages:
Our cottages are serviced and freshened up every day. All of the cottages have private bathrooms. The cottages are equipped with heaters for the cold months and fans during the warmer months. We also provide tea and coffee for you to enjoy in the early mornings.

Manor House:
Blancoís Manor House consists of four spacious units and a wonderful communal lounge and dining room area. The surrounding gardens and views are the perfect fit for someone who wants a truly revitalising holiday. Comfortable and spacious, our rooms are still simple and are equipped with nothing more than lovely country charm, which complements our 100-year old guest farm.

Each unit is completely private for individual families and each has its own garden or private balcony. Alternatively, for a group of four families to take the house together, it works beautifully as added to the spacious rooms, it boasts an extremely tasteful and spacious private lounge (with a magnificent fireplace for the winters) and dining room area for everyone to congregate. As a holiday destination, one could not ask for more comfort whilst having the full farm experience at the same time. Dining still takes place in the main Blanco dining room.

Kids at Blanco

Blanco is a wonderland for children to explore: whether itís on bicycles through the countryside, on horseback through our beautiful grounds or on our tractor cart that takes them to an enchanting fairy playground. Itís no surprise then that kids love Blanco. Many of them love it so much, in fact, that they have been known to hide under beds while mom and dad are packing the car and getting ready to go home.
