Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Historical cottage on a thoroughbred horse stud farm in the Hemel en Aarde valley, nestled amongst the mountains. Self-catering three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with shower and bath & one with a bath), dining room, lounge, a glass enclosed patio with a braai (barbeque) facing south and west. Kitchen with all amenities and lock up garage.

The farm is about 10km outside of Hermanus on a popular cycling and wine route, with hiking, birding and wild life in the area. Horse activities all around.

The space
The cottage sleeps two in the master bedroom, two in the second bedroom, one can sleep on the enclosed patio and there is a cute upstairs loft where two children can sleep. This is accessed either by a ladder, or external staircase, so may not be suitable for very young children.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to roam the farm and explore the walking routes, dams, fishing and wildlife. We just ask that guests respect that this is a working stud farm, and refrain from feeding the horses, and interacting especially with the stallions, as they can be unpredictable! Please be vigilant especially with young children around the horses, as they can kick and bite. Oldlands Stud will not be held responsible for any injury caused by interacting with the horses.

Other things to note
Rules:
-No outdoor fires allowed on the farm (Only in the allocated braai room)
-Communicating with horses at your own risk only
-No pets
-Events to be discussed beforehand
