About Grootnek Guest Farm

Grootnek Guest Farm offers a unique accommodation experience for visitors to the Eastern Cape. Guests can choose to enjoy their stay in the comfort of one of three quaint, self-catering, fully equipped cottages nestled amongst the orchards of this quiet and peaceful fruit farm.


The cottages each comprise an ample open plan living space including a dining area and kitchen. The Weskus and Karoo cottages have two bedrooms, providing sleeping space for up to six guests while the Bosveld cottage has one double bedroom and additional flexible sleeping for up to four guests.

The bathroom and kitchen in each cottage is fully equipped with hot running water from a gas geyser and gas appliances, including a fridge and stove. Lamps and candles are provided to complete the natural ambience of a starlit evening spent on the outside patio and braai area, overlooking the orchards in complete and comfortable privacy from the outside world.

The cottages are supplied with gas appliances but electricity is available elsewhere on the farm if needed.

Additional accommodation available at the original main farm house (with power), sleeping up to nine people. The farm house also provides guests with a comfortable living area and large farm style kitchen. A braai facility with farm yard and mountain views adds to the experience of staying in this traditional farm house.


Whether you enjoy complete relaxation or appreciating nature through outdoor activities, Grootnek Guest Farm offers the ideal opportunity to do both. From lounging in one of the private the ‘farm jacuzzis’ or watching 64 species of indigenous birdlife to horse feeding and trail hiking, guests are invited to take part in a wide variety of activities on offer at the guest farm.

Come and experience the true sense of ‘getting away from it all’ by letting the birds wake you up to breath the fresh country air each morning. Drink fresh natural spring water at the source and simply celebrate the peace and tranquility of nature undisturbed by the fast-paced city life.


Grootnek Guest Farm has a host of activities to offer guests during their stay. Activities range from blissful relaxation to bushveld adventure. So whether you want to simply take in the beautiful surroundings and untainted sunsets or explore the natural mountain fynbos on foot or horseback, you are sure to find your niche at Grootnek.
