Reviews for Lydenrust Guest Farm & Horse Trails
As soon as we arrived at this farm we were blown away by the wonderful hospitality of Alison (Ali) and her husband. The place itself is a haven of tranquility and a must go to for any travellers in the area. It's charm and appeal apply equally to adults and children with a range of activities available if you want to try them. Pony camps are regularly arranged for children and these will undoubtedly be amazing for children with a love and passion for horses and a whole range of farm animals that are cared for like pets by Ali.We were very sorry to leave after two lovely days but we will be back! Highly recommended.
The most beautiful place ever. The animals is exactly what kids need. It was so peaceful . cant wait to go back
Beautifully rustic guest farm with friendly hosts offering a family friendly getaway. Perfect for nature and animal lovers.
Farm experience with great hosts in a rustic area. Plenty of farm animals in close proximity. Will go back.
"Will soon return"
This was just the perfect distance and time away from the hustle and bustle of Jozi. In just under 3 hours we arrived, were welcome by lovely young Helena who showed us to our cabin, and we soon settled in.The stables and the friendly horses that were preparing to bed had the perfect aroma.Icing on the cake was my 22 month old daughter going on 2 maiden pony rides, which she thoroughly enjoyed.Driving from Joburg, I'd highly recommend the Machadodorp/Lydenrust route as the Mashishini/Lydenrust route is terrible (something out of control of the establishment unfortunately).We will be back next year for sure!!!
Lydenrust is an idyllic and nurturing little place. I loved the rustic-looking, yet clean and elegant cottages, the myriad of friendly animals and waking up to look at the view of the most magnificent mountains! Truly a place to unwind and slow down with our hectic lives.
most beautiful place in the world - horse riding
"Honeymoon in a little place in Heaven"
I can just say.... what a blessing to have met the wonderful people and to stay on the farm where there are so much love and peace.Alison Botha is a wonderful hostess. Her care and support form the beginning was a blessing. I asked her to prepare a welcoming gift for me and my husband to ensure that he knows how much I love him.Alison did more that I asked and it was such a surprise to find the welcoming note, two bottles of red wine and our names written on a horse shoe with the our marriage date.For people whom love nature and farm life, this is the place to stay. You can book a horse riding event and this is also a must as the farmland is beautiful especially on the back of the well groomed and cared for horses.Only warning is that the roads in and around Lydenburg is not to be traveled with cars with low suspensions as there are a hell of a lot of pot-holes (big...bigger...enormous) Thus plan your trip and be save.
This place is absolutely lovely. Stunning views of the mountains, nice and clean self-catering and pet-friendly accommodations, and super friendly staff. I had a very relaxing stay, fun interactions with farm animals every day and enjoyed going on horse trails up the hills for the views or down to the dam for a swim with the horses. Definitely recommend it !
