"Was a great stay, Mike and Val always helpful, great value for money!"
"Very peaceful, farm atmosphere. We loved the dogs, horses, pig and little goats. Val was very friendly and when we booked in we still owed her money and she said we can worry about that later because we were tired. That was nice to just go straight to our bungalow and chill."
"Good location just outside Nelspruit, and accomodation that also suits well for groups (we were 11 people). "
"We had a wonderful evening at Hawkshead, on our way to the Park. The facilities, both inside and outside the bungalow were ideal for us adults and for our 6-year old. The price is a steal!

The accommodation was excellent and lived up to expectations. Val had some late bookings for a sport tournamen..."

"Overnight facilities were good and recreational facilities. We enjoyed it. Will come again."
"Lovely thatched accommodation. Self catering made easy with the addition of microwave and toaster.
There are permanent residents there with yappy dogs which does not make for a quiet lie in in the morning. The race way can be heard loud and clear on the weekends so make plans to go and watch..."

It is a little out of town so transport is necessary. We enjoyed our stay very much, we we..."more
"I spent two nights at Hawkshead during the World Cup. The "master" Hippo Lodge room was great - nice comfy bed, separate bathroom and living area next door. The family that owns the farm is really nice and happy to chat about life. The only thing to know is that you really do need a car if you want ..."more

The place is beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer than one night to ..."

It was peaceful, quiet and relaxing. The unit was very comfortable and well equiped. The garden and birds were amazing. Although there was a power cut during our stay our hosts made our stay very comfortable.
"We stayed only one night. We thought it was a guest farm, suggesting that there would be animals on the farm, like cows, free ranging animals, since we went with our kids, and they were excited to see animals.
Our neighbour in the apartment next to us for the night commented that her kids ..."
