Verified reviewvery good

Our hostess Elma Ferreira who manages Mieliefontein sheep farm and guest house is a force to be reckoned with. Dynamite certainly comes in small packages and she is capable of anything. We were treated to an overladen table of Karoo cuisine with all the extras like curried peaches, bottled quince, home made fig jam and much more. Large comfortable room and bathroom with a view over the garden. Perfect overnight stay.
