Reviews for Groeneweide Farm
What a wonderful experience!Thank you for making us feel welcome in every way. We spent two peaceful nights in absolutely immaculate accommodation. Can't wait to visit you again!
I don't understand how you rate a place as child friendly - even with a little pram as an icon - if there's no baby changing facilities. The waitress directs me to the ladies bathroom as if to tell me 'change your baby on the bathroom floor ' and the 'mevrou' that gets called to assist with my question about a changing facility basically ridiculous me. An awful experience indeed.
Farm life!!! Restaurant and Nursery and Farm animals to feed and to touch.
Very nice place, friendly staff and petting zoo.
"SUPER ACCOMMODATION IN A FARM SETTING"
We intend returning to Blombos again ... we enjoyed every minute. The facilities are excellent and the fireplace is very effective. Highly recommended. Friendly & welcoming couple are very obliging - even met their goats, dogs and 2 ostriches. Dog friendly policy means a lot to us.
Slighty limited menu but don't let this stop you from visiting this hidden gem. Drop by the nursery for a pot plant or perhaps just a pot. Really nice visit spot.
Great hidden little gem.Good place for a quick stopover to get a small bite to eat and a good coffee!There are two Ostriches walking around freely, so not a place to bring your dogs. But the owners are very animal friendly and have a few friendly dogs walking about. Goats and a great big pen for tortoises. A small playground for the younger ones.The nursery has some interesting plants and service is good.
Food, fantastic. The farmstyl atmosphere amazing. Sheep wandering around. Grass so green and very clean and neat. A must for family with kids.
Groeneweide farm is really beautiful and we loved our stay. It has rustic charm, and the house was really comfortable and well equipped. It is a farm, though, so expect to see sheep and cows!
Nice spot to have some coffee or an awesome milkshake and take the kids to see some farm animals and big tortoises.
Atmosphere...feel at home and relaxed. Personal attention from manager! Could add to or change menu once in a while. Great Sunday lunch!
Nice relaxing venue, with awesome views. A few farm animals for the kids to look at and feed, including Sheep, Tortoises, Ostriches, Goats & a free roaming Sheep & lambRestaurant food is relatively farm-style simple, but pretty decent & very affordable. If you're not expecting a gourmet meal it's a nice place to relax, eat a meal & enjoy a glass of wine.It looks like they offer a set menu on Sundays... See photo!
"The farm atmosphere."
We stayed in Blombos. What a spacious clean practical cottage. It had everything one needed. The main bedroom, and lounge has the most amazing view of the distant sea, with the mountains behind, a very worthwhile stay.
