Deep in the Baviaans River Valley in the foothills of the Winterberg range, in the scenic and malaria-free Eastern Cape, lies Huntly Glen, the historic home of the family of Thomas Pringle, leader of the 1820 Scottish Settler Party.
Surrounded by mountains, spectacular views and immense peace and quiet, Huntly Glen offers a getaway for those who love the outdoors and tranquillity.
Stay in a restored and fully furnished farm-house. There are 2 bedrooms en-suite, 1 of which is large enough to pass as a “family” room sleeping 4 comfortably and has its own outside entrance, and 2 bedrooms (1 bedroom has a basin in the room), sharing a full bathroom (shower, toilet and basin) plus another separate toilet in the house.
The kitchen is fully equipped, and the lounge and dining room each contain their own fire-place for those chilly winter evenings..
There is a large patio with un-ending views across the mountains which makes for a wonderful area to just sit and relax while watching kudu as they quietly make their way across the opposite mountain slope.
In addition to the above accommodation, there is a 1 bedroom flat plus sitting room at the main homestead, but which is set far enough away to allow for privacy.
All linen and towels are supplied, and the house is serviced daily. Pet friendly, and small dogs are welcome.
For those who do not wish to do self-catering, meals consisting of traditional farm fare, and made with the freshest, organically grown farm produce and meat can be booked.
Join in with the daily activities and learn a bit about farming. Depending on the time of year, be shown how to “throw a fleece” or shear a sheep or angora goat. At lambing or goat kidding time there is also the possibility of helping to bottle-feed orphan lambs or kids.
En-suite Bathroom. Tea/Coffee. Safe Facilities. Pool. ennis Court. Aromatherapy Massage. Laundry. All children welcome. Pet Friendly.
