The owner's hospitality towards his guests is warm. The food is delicious, and best of all, a picnic at the dam is a great way to enjoy some private time. It's a place you'll want to visit again and again with your precious family and friends.

A beautiful farm stay off the grid with the most delicious food I recently took my boyfriend for a getaway from the corporate jungle. Little Forest Farm was the perfect find. We were warmly greeted by host Rodney who was in touch from the day before we arrived. Rodney’s communication throughout the entire time leading up to our arrival was fantastic. From receiving directions to a list of things to do in the area to curating our 3x course dinner menu. We really were made to feel welcome. The menu was personalized to our favourites. We arrived to a beautifully neat cottage and were allowed an early check -in (as guests had left slightly earlier). A picnic table was set up at the dam .which was a kilometre away from our cottage .on the farm. It was so private and magical. Then dinner at the BOMA was truly romantic & exceeded our expectations. We had a mussel pot for starters with home made sour dough bread (baked by Rodney himself) in fact all our meals were prepared by our host Rodney. The starters were followed by the most delicious lamb shanks we’ve ever which were served with veg & melting in our mouths mashed potatoes & fresh herbs.. Then the beautifully glazed cream brûlée left us feeling totally over -indulged. It was an evening we will remember forever. The entire time I stayed at the farm I was in awe of the environmentally friendly way in which the farm was run. We had perfectly heated water for a shower with the rocket donkey wood fired up heater for the geyser. We woke up to the sound of sheep bleating . We enjoyed a hot cross bun Easter breakfast in our cottage verandah. Everything from the time we arrived to the time we left felt like exactly what we needed for our souls ri be at peace.. Thank you Rodney. I’d recommend Little Forest Farm to all my friends & anyone who wants a simple farm getaway - an only 90minutes drive away from Sandton. .

My boyfriend and I booked the Little Farm house for Easter weekend as a getaway. It really exceeded our expectations. The room was wonderful, perfect for just the 2 of us. The kitchen was fully kitted out! Rodney even provided milk, coffee, tea, and sugar for us. The place was secluded and very relaxing. Rodney made us feel very welcomed and even suggested nearby activites and arranged game drives for us. We would definitely stay again, when we need a break from the hussle and bussle. Very beautiful stay. Everything was perfect.

Exceptional ☺ The host is really friendly and accommodating. The food is EXCEPTIONAL. Lots of activities around the area. ☹ The long gravel road leading up to the farm.
Reply from Little Forest Farm
Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed our food 😊 The gravel road is only 7km and most of our guests find it quite good as gravel roads go. Also we are closer to the tar road than most other establishments in the area 😉

Enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle, with starry starry nights, fresh farm breakfasts & quiet ☺ My partner and I loved everything about Little Forest Farm. The farmstead is exactly what we expected - out in the sticks, far enough away from cities that you can enjoy the milky way at night and breath fresh farm air during the day. We stayed in the cottage, which was perfectly geared for a long weekend stay. The kitchen had what we needed, there was a braai facility for our evening meals and the joy of having no TV meant we could use the time to read, play cards and enjoy one another's company. The best part of our stay was the breakfasts. Freshly baked bread every morning, to accompany a full house breakfast (you won't go hungry!) along side jams made from fruit grown on their farm and honey from the beehives they accommodate at the lower end of the property (on your way to the dam!). Lastly, our host was a gem. Rodney is a lovely, out going and caring host; making sure we were comfortable and happy at all moments of our stay. ☹ Mosquitoes :( I know it's just a part of nature, and the pond outside probably hosted the majority of the mozzie population, but adding some mosquito nets to the beds will be a big step towards continued improvement of the accommodation. Additionally, if you are travelling there on your own steam, be prepared for the gravel road. In summer, with all the rains, the quality of the gravel road goes down quite a lot making the last stretch of the journey (~3km's) a little too bumpy for some (humans, cars or otherwise).

Hi Adri and thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review 🙂 We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and the breakfasts and that everything met your expectations. It was particularly warm and humid when you were here which may explain the mosquitoes as none of our guests have mentioned it since. Most of our guests find the road quite good as gravel roads go and we are closer to the tar road than most other establishments in the area 😉

What an amazing little weekend get away. If you are looking for a complete disconnect from the world definitely the place to be. Rodney was just awesome. Service and food was great. So peaceful and tranquil. A place to spend quality time with family, friends or a place to get to know a special someone.
