Kinmel Guest Farm is a highly recommended property for self catering in Rhodes for tourists visiting the Northern Ukhahlamba region.

About Kinmel Guest Farm

Kinmel guest farm, a place to break away, reflect and rejuvenate. Come visit and enjoy the magnificence of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains.

Just past the picturesque town of Rhodes, recently declared a conservation area, you will find the outstretched fields and mountain slopes of the farm Kinmel. We offer a complete break away from it all, as Kinmel is only reachable by gravel road.

Self Catering Accommodation

The old barn were transformed and divided into 2 comfortable, private, fully equipped, fresh and easy to live in chalets. Full kitchen, 2 bathrooms (bath and shower), perfectly furnished and spacious enough for groups of up to 8 per chalet, and at the same time, still cosy enough for a break away weekend for 2.

Wilgerboom chalet can sleep up to 8, Bergstroom chalet up to 10. Combine both chalets for a relaxing getaway and get-together for the whole family. Chalets are never shared with other people, except when requested or if it is a group booking.

Surrounding the chalets are large lawns with, a small lovely mountain stream murmuring past less than 50 meters away. Wide open spaces where everybody can walk, play, cycle or do whatever they desire. A very child friendly environment with two jungle gyms for the kids to keep them busy.

In addition to electric lights, fridge (with freezer compartment), microwave oven, stove and plug points, they all have fireplaces and private braai areas. Firewood is supplied free of charge. The cottages are fully equipped and serviced daily by cleaning staff. A Cot can be provided on request. Bedrooms are upstairs with an easy child friendly staircase. No smoking is inside the chalets.

ACTIVITIES

Kick your day of with an early morning hike, take a drive up some of our countries most spectacular mountain passes, spoil your fly-fishing rod with a scintillating sunset stroll down river…and as the quiet darkens settles….sit, breathe and put your feet up next to the crackling flames of a cosy fireplace. Kinmel …where eagles come to stretch their wings!

Fly Fishing:
Apart from our child friendly chalets, complete with fireplace, the perfect ‘stoep’ for a ‘braai’ and out-stretched lawn, Kinmel is also a fully functional and active farm. Many a sheep bleating away adds to the farm’s peaceful and refreshing atmosphere. Only topped by trout meandering in the farm’s crystal clear personal stretch of the Bell River, a mere 500m from the chalet, making Kinmel a fly fishing hotspot.

Mountain Passes;
Kinmel is perfectly situated at the heart of some of South Africa’s most spectacular mountain passes. Very near to the foot of Naude’s Nek pass and a mere 20km from the Tiffindell ski resort and mount of Ben McDhui (the highest peak in the Cape). Ten of the country’s top and most spectacular high altitude mountain passes are within easy reach from the farm.

Daytime hiking offers a possible glimpse of the endangered Bearded Vulture as well as various other wild life and spectacular flora. Night time offers unparalleled star gazing.
Come Winter, Kinmel’s outstretched lawn can transform overnight into a white and snowy wonderland!

Our favourite place to stay when visiting Rhodes. Accommodation is comfortable and clean, and the fireplace keeps the unit warm even on the coldest winter nights. Owners are always friendly, helpful and courteous.

We had our wedding on a mountain"! Yes, we said our vows standing in the field, the wind tucking at the layers of white linen flowing from a custom made gazebo. All this whilst surrounded by a 360 degree view of spectacular mountains topped with soft white early autumn snow! Kinmel Guest Farm - Thank you! We could not have asked for a more breathtaking and just awesome experience! The personal detail and attention was incredible - from the perfectly beautifully built gazebo to the tiny green champagne glass apples! The accommodation also perfectly suited our short honeymoon. As quiet, remote and beautiful as you can get! We can not wait for our next visit!
