About Oakhurst Farm Cottages
Sitting high above the Wilderness Lakes in rural Hoekwil, Oakhurst Farm has got the getaway recipe down to a tee: plenty of good ol’ farm fun, clean country air, and a platter of rustic-luxury accommodation that will knock your socks off.
Self Catering Accommodation
You’re spoilt for choice at Oakhurst. From the historic Forge, one of the very first buildings on the farm, to the beautifully restored and fun-filled Farm Cottages.
All of Oakhurst’s accommodation comes with personal touches, extra comforts and a great spread of farm activities. It’s all about comfort, relaxation and if you’re up for it, getting stuck into the Oakhurst action.
The Farm Cottages have been a part of Oakhurst for the past 30 years. Kween’s Kaya, Awies Attic, Leenies Lair, Hans’s Hollow and Nick’s Nook are set along the edge of a section of forest, intersected with a gurgling stream that flows during the rainy periods.
Each cottage is privately positioned and fully set up for self-catering, with a well equipped kitchen and cozy living area with wooden floors. The living area in turn opens out onto a large wooden deck and braai area.
Each cottage has three bedrooms (One double and two twins) and sleeps up to 6 people. There is a central bathroom with shower. Garden Route winters can be cold, and a fire roaring in the kitchen’s wood-burning stove sets the perfect atmosphere for farm winters.
The School Yard
Once the school to Oakhurst’s farm children, this building has been lovingly restored and converted into four charactar-packed, fully equipped units, each with a double and twin bedroom.
The long school building houses three of these units, namely Landon’s Loft, Holly’s Hangout and Anna’s Apartment. The latter two are ideal for larger groups sharing, as they include inter-leading doors between each unit.
All have independent braai areas (wood included), patio’s, kitchenettes and a bathroom with shower. Set away from the main building is Isak’s Eden, the fourth unit which also has separate double and twin rooms, a kitchenette, private patio and braai area and equal amounts of rustic Oakhurst charm. Just like the rest of our farm accommodation,
A combination of wow factor, rustic country elegance and romantic charm second-to-none, has made The Forge at Oakhurst a top retreat for anyone looking for a little piece and quiet.
Sleeping two, with two additional beds for kids in a loft area, this 150 year old stone cottage was one of the first building to be built at Oakhurst and today is the main bedroom, with thick stone walls and exposed timber beams.
The living area wraps around the cottage and is made up of a dining area, equipped kitchen with gas stove and cosy lounge area. The entire side of the building can be opened up, by way of canvas roller blinds to maximise the spectacular forest views. Firewood, percale linen, bath towels and soaps are included with your stay.
Due to the The Forge structure being a mix of canvas roller blinds, natural stone and timber decking, you’re likely to encounter a few creepy crawlies and extra drafts.
