We loved our stay at Old Mill, it’s peacefull and charming and the folks of the establishment are very helpful and friendly. The farm is well run and the views are amazing. You can also take nice walks around the farm or just a very short drive into clarens town for a bite to eat.A must for anyone or family or friends that want to get away. We are lookonng forward to returning soon.

We loved the tranquility and surroundings. The hosts went out of their way to lend us cutlery and crockery as we were not aware that the Wendy was not equipped. We were disappointed that they did not inform us that there is no fising due to low water levels. We will definitely return after good rainfall.

.The views from the windows and that you are save when going for a walk with the doggies.

Situated in a beautiful setting. Accommodation is rustic. Vehicle access not suited for town cars. Our German visitors had a pleasurable experience and want to bring the extended family along next time.

It is a place to getaway from it all,very quiet. Horses come around often, a real farm environment. There was no hot water in the sink to wash dishes. Have a pamphlet advising on what can be done on the farm as far as activities and things to do. Roads up to the main house could be improved by removing the large stones.
