Camping and Caravan Sites:
There are 12 camping sites on this beautiful 64ha farm with about 4ha of gardens and 1.5ha of dams. Each campsite is about 10m x 10m & each site is clearly demarcated by drainage and clearly numbered. Each site has its own braai area with a light that can be switched on and off by yourself so that you can see your meat and what you are doing on the braai table. Underneath the braai table is a spot where you can put your braai wood or charcoal and big black dustpan right next door. Each site has their own socket outlets (blue type) and is protected by its own 15 amp circuit breaker with an earth leakage (as required by law). Each site also has its own tap for drinking water etc. but not for washing oily items as that is what the kitchen is for. The camping area is lit up with lights at about every second site making it a little more homely and visible. There is also a Sauna close to the ablution facility.
There is a central area to do the dish washing etc., with a fridge/freezer, urn, x2 toaster, two plate stove and a table top for a working area. There are also electric points in this central working area.
The female section of the ablution facilities has a shower with a glass pivot door and a changing area and 2 toilets. The basins are modern with mirrors above each basin and a water tight plug point with a mirror just above the plug. The males section is exactly the same as above except that there is a urinal included. All the floors in the ablution block and kitchen are tiled with black slate tiles.
We also have a Wendy House (3,23m x 3,55m) on the bottom site just above (10m) the Trout dam with two beds with side lamps and side table, inside and outside lights as well as a basin, towel, soap, kettle, plate, mugs, forks and knives. There is also space to put up tents on the same site. If more people want to camp on this site, the above rates apply for the extra people. Our cottages and the Wendy House are serviced daily, where the beds are made, dishes washed, etc. so that you can kick back, relax and enjoy your stay.
