THE AREA

There are many different trails catering for hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers through the fynbos on the farm. We have been building beautiful single-track MTB trails over the last two years and trail running routes that are available to our guests to ride/run/walk at their own risk. There are currently 30km+ of spectacular trails to enjoy on our farm throughout your stay.

The monthly Farmers' Market is held on the last Saturday of the month on the farm next to Retreat Guest Farm. The local farmers and community sell their fresh produce and crafts. It is one of the many highlights of the month and the whole community comes together to support one another. There's always a local band playing and lots of delicious food and homemade treats.

YELLOWWOOD FOREST TRAIL

A lovely 1 hour trail through the rock formations and 100 year old + Yellowwood and Kliphout tree canopies. Trail running enthusiasts are welcome to run it! Not suitable for mountain bikes though.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

We are also available if our guests would like a 4x4 trip up to our special viewpoint, Perdekop. Guests can either take a short hike up (3km there and back to the house) or use their own 4X4 vehicle to drive up.

We also give 'guided' tours of our Yellowwood Forest hiking trail and rock paintings, however this is completely up to our guests as the trail is clearly marked and guests can do it privately as well.
