"WE HAD A NICE QUIET STAY. IT IS CLOSE TO TOWN. "
"Hi, I think it would be wise to inform people that this cottage is very remote, the road is almost non-existing, I drive a Polo and it was difficult to get there. There is also no electricity with only paraffin lamps. I had to do some weaving, which is impossible. Luckily they had a bed for me in th..."more
"Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there! "
"It was wonderful to stay in a family home with so much history, character and comfort.
Emma was extremely helpful and spoilt us by making the best 'krummelpap' ever. She also insisted that she would do all the washing up which meant I had a real holiday! Thank you Emma."
"Absolutely amazing weekend for the ten of us! We felt we had stepped back one hundred years. Loved it and would definitely recommend it to all. Emma was amazing! A lovely weekend!"
"The stay was absolutely AWESOME... Will come again "
"This is a rustic cosy little country cottage. Don't expect wifi and DSTV! Enjoy reading, playing cards, bird watching, country walks and drinking wine next to the coal burner in the cold winter nights!
We really enjoyed our stay and Fred is most generous and accommodating. Emma (the cleaning la..."
"Great setting with lovely gardens which suited our birding group very well. The interior is a marvel with old paintings, land deeds, curios and antique furniture...........very different indeed. Emma the maid and the two young girls were brilliant, serving some wonderful meals and doing our laundry...."more

It is set in a beautiful garden and is very peaceful and tranquil with excellent bird life. We also saw buck and hares in the garden. Emma cooked delicious meals for u..."more
"Baie skoon en netjies. Die omgewing en stilte is wonderlik."
"Ons het heerlik voor die kaggel gekuier in Wakkerstroom. Die plaashuis is ruim en propvol ou boeke en foto's van die Kolbe familie. Die kinders het die kalfie en klein bokkie gevoer en weggekruip tussen die bome en pragtige plante in die massiewe tuin. Emma, die huishulp, het ons plaaskuier voltooi ..."more
"My daughter and myself stayed in the separate little house (away from the main building).
This was such an wonderful experience. It made be think back to my childhood. All the basics were available, even a coal stove for heat. One wakes up with a beautiful sunrise and cattle around the house."
"This accommodation was different to your ordinary type of stay. It was peace and quiet just like we wanted. The environmental surrounding was beautiful. A cool and calming atmosphere. The place was spacious and it had everything we needed. The people were lovely and friendly. I'd recommend it to tho..."more
"Absolutely amazing place!! Quiet and relaxing. Emma is really awesome!!! If you want to relax and have a break away from a busy life. This is the pace to go to!!"
"Well it was not what I really expected.
Because the photo on this advert did not do justice to what we've got.
Emma was the highlight of the weekend.
We as a family will talk long after this weekend about our wonderful experience and the history locked in those walls, we will book again..."
"Value for money, Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge is hard to beat. What a place for a quiet few days - well, what about a week - with a great view over the farm to the hills in the distance. Neatly trimmed lawn around the lodge.
Main bedroom with a double bed and the second bedroom with 4 bunk-beds. Gas ..."
"Comfortable farm house in beautiful setting. Superb service from Emma the housekeeper."
"We, a couple & 2 youngsters love the peaceful environment of the cottage. When hot, the outdoor basic braai place, with sumptuous oak trees provides all comfort. The cottage is well prepared, we enjoyed cooking, resting, relaxing. The large book shelve filled our moments."
"We would like to thank all at Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge for a lovely weekend, we would certainly recommend it.
The peace, quiet and relaxed atmosphere was what we needed to re-charge our batteries. Very clean and homely, with brilliant attentive staff. As the weather was very cold and rainy t..."
