THE AREA

There are many different walks through the fynbos on the farm. There are also more strenuous walks up to Perdekop viewpoint to enjoy the views.

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 tree canopies. Trail running enthusiasts are welcome to run it! Not suitable for mountain bikes.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

There are gravel and tar roads from the top to the bottom of the mountain. Great for downhill fun and endurance hill climbs. Single track paths are being developed. You can cycle around the top of the mountain for a relaxing ride.

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 we can assist with driving 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.
