Self-catering guests can get wood on the farm should they wish to braai. All other produce can be bought in Port Elizabeth which will have your wider variety when it comes to fresh produce. The Spar grocery store at Colchester (26km fro The Green Tree), also on your way, is also a possible stop, but with a smaller variety of things to get. Colchester also has a cozy restaurant, which is popular for their steaks. The Nanaga Farm stall is also close by, with a day restaurant, good for breakfast and lunches. Home made bakes and family sized pies can also be bought there. The restaurant in the Addo Elephant park also supplies meals daily.


Our four cottages are graded 4 stars by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, Superior Accommodation by the AA and were a Finalist in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 AA American Express Accommodation Awards Category Farm Stay.


Take full advantage of our South African weather and sunbath around our swimming pool on those warm summer days, or simply catch up on your reading (and napping!) time under the trees of our lush, peaceful garden.

Children can explore the farm, or have fun on the swings, small touch farm also available. The farm dam is stocked with Kurper and lots of bird life.

Guests are also welcome to take a walk to the dairy and see how the cows are milked. If you enjoy walking, you can explore the farm, which is game fenced, the area is the natural habitat for bushbuck, kudu, duiker, warthog and porcupine, you also have a good chance to see monkeys in the fields.

For the bird lover, there is plenty of bird life around the farm and at the Sundays River. Take a walk along the beach at Colchester and see the beautiful moving sand dunes of the Eastern Cape, or if you enjoy fishing, try to catch that big one at the River mouth!
