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.
