Own your own tranquil farm… for a few days

Op Plaasvlak – meaning - “on farm roots level” - is a spacious 7 bedroom farmstead (comprising of a 4 and a 3 bedroom farmstead adjacent to each other) situated on a cattle and sheep farm between Memel and Newcastle in the North-eastern Free State.

It is ideal for larger family gatherings with 4 bathrooms, open plan dining area and lounge, fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), indoors braai and games area with pool table. The house is surrounded by outstretched lawns and enormous oak trees.

The main attraction of this farm is a beautiful dam surrounded by willow trees with shady picnic spots. There is a thatched lapa with braai, wash basins, wc and shower facilities alongside the dam. For hours of laughs and water fun, you’ll find a fufieslide and four kayaks for our guests to enjoy. Birding (at the nearby Seekoeivlei Wetlands Nature Reserve) and fishing (carp or Florida bass) are popular pastimes, while hikers, cyclers or bikers can experience interesting farm routes.
