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

The Forge, Oakhurst's flagship, fits into a category of its own: 'Romantic Escape Perfected', while the meticulously renovated Oakhurst Farm Cottages are tailor-made for families with kids and in-laws in tow.

The Forge:
But let’s kick off with The Forge - a romantic nest combining high octane wow factor, solitude, rustic elegance and easy living. Ever so carefully restored, The Forge features yellowwood beams, percale cotton linen, soft wrap-around towels and oodles of rustic-romantic ambiance.

Sleeping a possible family of five, the main bedroom has a double bed and elegant furnishings. A further three single mattresses can be found in the loft room - but if we were you we'd pretend to ignore these as the Forge is all about lurve and romance.

The open-plan living room with fireplace and fully equipped kitchen take the concept of open living to a new level: roll up the canvas sides and you’re dining and cooking el fresco, to a view of sweeping lawns and forest views.

It gets better. Try out the shower: open-air and more fantastic views over forest and river. Maybe a little breezy for some in bad weather, but hey, that's the price you pay.

Family Cottages:
Moving on to the new five-pack of family cottages, these were once home to Oakhurst’s workers, many of whom worked this land for generations. In tribute, the cottages are aptly named after their colourful characters.

Kween’s Kaya, Awies Attic, Leenies Lair, Hans’s Hollow and Nick’s Nook are identical, with landscaped lawns and views over the surrounding forest. Each has three bedrooms (a double and two twins) and shared bathroom with shower. The living room, with wooden floors and wood burning stove, is open-plan to a small, fully-equipped kitchen.

Leading off from the living room is a generous deck with built-in braai area and dining table - yet another perfect spot for that glass of fine red and a roaring fire.

Easing the logistics, free-range eggs and fresh milk from the dairy are available on request, and Wilderness itself is also not too far down the way, as are a couple of decent restaurants.

The farm has several interesting historic relics - the quaint Oakhurst chapel takes centre stage and is well worth a pop-in and serious contender for your own big day. Nearby waterfalls, farm trails, a gold mine of mountain biking options, are all up for grabs.

“The Forge at Oakhurst is the loveliest place we have ever stayed in my opinion!” says one guest. It's not hard to see why. Go on then, treat yourself!
