A FARM STAY LIKE NO OTHER

Oakhurst Farm offers a healthy slice of rural bliss for the entire family. From stylish and comfortable accommodation options to plenty of good ol’ fashioned farm fun for the kids and adults alike. A visit here will remain a family memory for years to come.

For couples, The Forge, a gorgeously restored and converted stone blacksmith’s forge, offers a unique combination of rustic luxury, while the Farm Cottages are ideal for families or groups looking for that perfect spot right on the forest fringe.

Whatever your choice, be it hiking trails to the waterfalls, fishing on the dam or cycling on the many kilometers of forest single track, this is a farm stay like no other, the kind of place you and your kids will never want to leave.

Oakhust Farmstay Accommodation Options

THE FORGE (sleeps 2 + 2)

A combination of wow factor, rustic country elegance and romantic charm second-to-none, has made The Forge at Oakhurst a top retreat for anyone looking for a little piece and quiet.

Sleeping two, with two additional beds for kids in a loft area, this 150 year old stone cottage was one of the first building to be built at Oakhurst and today is the main bedroom, with thick stone walls and exposed timber beams. The living area wraps around the cottage and is made up of a dining area, equipped kitchen with gas stove and cosy lounge area. The entire side of the building can be opened up, by way of canvas roller blinds to maximise the spectacular forest views. Firewood, percale linen, bath towels and soaps are included with your stay.

Please note: Due to the The Forge structure being a mix of canvas roller blinds, natural stone and timber decking, you’re likely to encounter a few creepy crawlies and extra drafts. 

THE COTTAGES (5 x Cottages each sleeps 6)

Our Farm Cottages have been a part of Oakhurst for the past 30 years.

Kween’s Kaya, Awies Attic, Leenies Lair, Hans’s Hollow and Nick’s Nook are set along the edge of a section of forest, intersected with a gurgling stream that flows during the rainy periods.

Each cottage is privately positioned and fully set up for self-catering, with a well equipped kitchen and cozy living area with wooden floors. The living area in turn opens out onto a large wooden deck and braai area. This is the spot where you can either enjoy a good meal around the large wooden table or simply enjoy some of Oakhurst’s fine mountain air while getting stuck into a good book.

Each cottage has three bedrooms (One double and two twins) and sleeps up to 6 people. There is a central bathroom with shower. Garden Route winters can be cold, and a fire roaring in the kitchen’s wood-burning stove sets the perfect atmosphere for farm winters.

THE SCHOOLYARD

Once the school to Oakhurst’s farm children, this building has been lovingly restored and converted into four charactar-packed, fully equipped units, each with a double and twin bedroom. The long school building houses three of these units, namely Landon’s Loft, Holly’s Hangout and Anna’s Apartment. The latter two are ideal for larger groups sharing, as they include inter-leading doors between each unit. All have independent braai areas (wood included), patio’s, kitchenettes and a bathroom with shower. Set away from the main building is Isak’s Eden, the fourth unit which also has separate double and twin rooms, a kitchenette, private patio and braai area and equal amounts of rustic Oakhurst charm. Just like the rest of our farm accommodation, The Schoolyard puts you right in the centre of the action, and within walking distance (500m) of the children’s play area, the farm dam and the swimming reservoir. With those gorgeous rural views and fresh country air, there’s plenty of reason to get out and explore.

Our Glorious Tracks and Trails - At Oakhurst there is no shortage of healthy outdoor fun to keep you and your kids busy. From many kilometres of well-maintained forest single track for mountain biking or trail running, to hikes through the forest to the farm’s waterfall, the action at Oakhurst just keeps getting better. Try your luck at a spot of fishing in the farm dam, where canoes are ready and waiting for you. The kids can visit the Oakhurst Dairy and watch the cows being milked or play on the climbing wall and jungle-gym in front of the cottages. There’s no doubt about it, at Oakhurst the action never stops.

They'll Never Want To Leave - Simply described as sheer bliss for kids, Oakhurst is the kind of place your kids will never want to leave. From watching the dairy cows going to milk to venturing off on their bikes along farm roads and forest trails, kids are guaranteed some serious farm fun. The Crow’s Nest, a platform built into the trees, The Climbing Wall and Slide are all on the forest fringe in front of the cottages, allowing you to keep a watchful eye. So, abandon the iPads, put on the gumboots and let them play like kids did back in the good ol’ days.
