About Whipstock Guest Farm
Come and visit Whipstock Guest Farm and turn back time to a more relaxed pace of life away from the hustle and bustle. Located in the rain shadow of the Sonderend Mountains, on the banks of the Koningsriver, we have kept a small part of rural South Africa remarkably untouched by progress.
We offer two self-catering and three bed and breakfast cottages, each with an atmosphere and charm of its own. The cottages are equipped with fridges, coffee and tea-making facilities and fireplaces. The accommodation reflects its natural surroundings of beautiful countryside living. The commons room offers a small bar area; we are not licensed so bring your own, with large fireplace, dining room and a television with full DSTV. A variety of board games are also available and a library is available for readers to browse.
Whipstock Guest Farm is a prefect getaway for adults with children, as the farm offers a myriad of activities to keep everyone busy. There is a wonderful farm dam with clean mountain water for swimming and canoeing - perfect for those hotter summer days.
The surrounding areas are underdeveloped, lending a rustic charm to the scenery for great walks or mountain bike rides. Short and longer trails have been laid out on the farm such as the Over the Hills walk and the Valley Walk. With Whipstock Farm far from any development, the night sky is clear and the stars are unbelievably visible. At night, stargazing is a journey into another world. The surrounding wine estates offer stylish wine-tasting outings, and the fascinating, historic and artist town of McGregor is only 7 km away, providing a small store for basics, numerous shops, and restaurants.
