Farm Accommodation

 

In the good old days, many of us had a Grandfather or Uncle with a farm and we used to go and visit them whenever we wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, when we wanted to get in contact with nature. But times have changed. Many people have moved to the cities and have almost no contact with nature. They have nowhere to go and game reserves are too costly to afford.

 

We are offering you a Grandfather or Uncle with a farm, just like in the olden days. You can go and visit as much as you'd like, and make yourself right at home. Best of all, you can offer your children the opportunity to experience life on a farm firsthand. At night you can see the night sky with its millions of stars without any air- or light pollution! It is breathtaking, almost unbelievable!

 

Don't hesitate. Pick up your phone and dial any of these farms for the outing of your life!
