your soul in the vastness and incredible scenic beauty of the Highlands of the Eastern Free State, South Africa.

WALK LIGHTLY ON THE EARTH
20 years of Wilding - there has been no poisons, sprays, chemical fertlizers - no destructive tilling - and wild & native healing plants proliferate - there are bees and butterflies & the carbon is sequestered beneath our feet.
The self catering cottages are beautifully positioned to enjoy the most spectacular view of the Eastern Free State. Here in the Eastern Highlands the long warm summer days lend themselves to barbecue evenings on the covered deck, cooling swims in the farm reservoir with sparkling clean borehole water and long beautiful evenings whilst watching a huge golden moon rise over the mountains. In winter the snowy mountains and crisp clear air , big open fires and glass doors and windows give optimal enjoyment of the view. With a good book or a game of chess, enjoyed over a beautiful bottle of wine, what a way to while away an afternoon or indeed an evening. The sunrises, in the silence and beauty of our valley, with flocks of birds flying in great V formations to feeding grounds, the rasping noise of the norther black korhaan, and far away maybe the sound of a dog barking or a cow calling her calf to heel. The magnificent sunsets are followed by nights with stars that take your breath away.
