About Penwarn Farm Lodge

Rustic yet modern, Penwarn Farm Lodge can be found just 25km from the quaint, little town of Underberg in South Africa. As you drive down the Khyber Pass, you’ll be greeted with the all the beauty that Penwarn has to offer.

The farm lodge lies in an exquisite valley surrounded by lakes, and borders Highlands Farm which was established in 1886. Over 3400 hectares of land is farmed by the fifth generation of Nicholson’s, raising cattle and sheep and planting maize and potatoes for the market.

Sharing the grasslands are zebra, hartebeest and blesbok. Birdlife is of abundance and the cranes and wild geese can be spotted from the comfort of your room. Penwarn truly is an animal enthusiast’s paradise!

We look forward to welcoming you to Penwarn Farm Lodge and providing you with an amazing farm holiday experience.

By far one of the best places we've stayed at. The view from the lodge is absolutely stunning, waking up to look over the misty lake was amazing. The host is very friendly and excellent. The food was brilliant, we enjoyed every meal. 5 stars!
