"QUIET CLEAN PLACE."

Carolina Viljoen | 2 March 2017

"WE HAD A NICE QUIET STAY. IT IS CLOSE TO TOWN. "


"Oom Hans Cottage"

(South Africa) Ellen Janse van Rensburg | 22 April 2016

"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..."

"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 the main house, and the very friendly, helpful woman Emma was kind enough to prepare the room for me at 20h00 at night. I need to sleep there again on Sunday and Monday, so hopefully they would be able to accommodate me again in the main house, which is absolutely lovely!

I would rate the main house with 5 stars, but the Oom Hans cottage only 1 star!"


"Lovely stay"

(South Africa) Jill Sumption | 2 April 2013

"Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there! "


"Wonderful"

(South Africa) RenŽ Glen | 16 June 2014

"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."


"Lovely"

(South Africa) Jill Sumption | 17 August 2012

"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 Farmhouse"

Hugo Van Niekerk | 4 September 2017

"The stay was absolutely AWESOME... Will come again "


"Tranquil, beautiful country scenery in a cosy cottage"

Angela Skea | 29 August 2017

"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..."

We really enjoyed our stay and Fred is most generous and accommodating. Emma (the cleaning lady) very kindly brought us hot pap in the morning and stoked the coal stove for us. Overall a great stay, we will definitely be back!"


"What a great place!"

(United Kingdom) Graeme Dunlop | 23 February 2017

"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...."

"Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge is a lovely old historic house containing wonderful old kitchen utensils etc which took me back to my youth. 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 us and was very friendly and helpful. One small constructive criticism is that it would have been nice to have had a dessert after our dinner. Just ice cream and chocolate sauce or tinned fruit and Ultra mel custard would suffice. A most enjoyable stay at a very reasonable price."


"Wonderlik"

(South Africa) Gerhard Swarts | 28 February 2013

"Baie skoon en netjies. Die omgewing en stilte is wonderlik."


"Lieflike Plaaskuier"

(South Africa) Riana Nel | 30 November 2015

"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 ..."

Vir stadsjapies was hierdie voorwaar 'n besonderse plaaskuier !"


"What a little gem!"

(South Africa) Francois Erlank | 6 June 2013

"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 those who like a different type of experience and also there was no electricity. Didn't bother us much though. "


"LOVED IT!! "

(South Africa) Donovan | 13 March 2017

"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!!"


"Fantastic"

(South Africa) izak | 23 October 2015

"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..."

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 at this farm.
We had a wonderful time.
The environment, the farm house and all the things was just great.
We cannot say THANK YOU enough because words cannot describe the beautiful time we had at the lodge.
I will gladly recommend this to family and friends

"Peace and quiet and an interesting library!"

"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 for hot water and cooking, solar lanterns and a paraffin lamp, for light in the evening. Comfortable living room.
You will no doubt need something to read - look no further than the library. Everything from Harry Potter to Alan Paton.
Emma will do the washing and tidying-up. Bliss.

"Comfortable farm house in beautiful setting. Superb service from Emma the housekeeper."


"Jack & Friends Love Ooms Hans Cottage"

(South Africa) Mr Jacques Sergent | 26 December 2012

"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 the warm anthracite heater was very welcome after our return from sightseeing, it was like a step back in time.

See you again soon!
