The level of service at this place is amazing. They go all out to make you comfortable. We were allowed to bring our little dog, and they were so nice to him. The cottages are really beautiful, you'll sleep like a baby in them. Pool is great, bar is well stocked and the food is amazing. Really top class. The...

The Featherd Nest is one of those places that South Africa seems to excel at, but this is one of the best. My wife and I are regular visitors to SA (my sister lives in Joburg) and we have stayed on a number of guest farms, but none quite like this one. The cottages are lovely and clean,well maintained and...

This place is a gem - we stayed there after a weekend in the Pilanesberg to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our hosts, Marion, Martin & EL-Bé, are simply magnificent. The food is beyond gourmand and our room, Batis, is better than most 5-star hotels. We will be back.

I don't rate anything 'the best' lightly, but last weekend I experienced the best getaway I've ever experienced in 25 odd years; from the very first meeting of Martin at the gate, Marion's kind attention to detail in welcoming us and preparing the most amazing meal in luxurious surroundings in the bush and El-Bé's easy, friendly socialising with us as...

We had been meaning to visit The Feathered Nest Guest Farm for years but, living in Cape Town, it's not often we both get the chance to get up to that part of the country. Silly us for leaving it so long - what a gem this is. The first impression is the friendliness of the owner manager team of...
