Great location

A unique, off-grid, farm-stay experience a stones throw from East London.
Tucked away in an indigenous forest this secluded, eco-cottage overlooks the Gonubie River valley.

The space
We are on a small working farm, based roughly on permaculture principles, with free-range chickens, pasture reared pigs and rabbits and holistically managed livestock. Our free-range children are home-schooled and help with the running of the farm.
We hand-milk two cows daily and make our own butter and cheese.
We run exclusively on solar power, so no load shedding.
We have a small nursery and carpentry workshop on the farm.

5.0 out of 5 stars from 20 reviews



East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa

We are surrounded by small holdings and game farms, so there is plenty of wild-life.
We have 700m of Gonubie River frontage on the farm with several pools to swim in.
We are 15min from the beach and 10min from a grocery store.
