About Kinmel Guest Farm

Kinmel guest farm, a place to break away, reflect and rejuvenate! Come visit and enjoy the magnificence of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains.

Just past the picturesque town of Rhodes, recently declared a conservation area, you will find the outstretched fields and mountain slopes of the farm Kinmel. We offer a complete break away from it all, as Kinmel is only reachable by gravel road.

The old barn were transformed and divided into 2 comfortable, private, fully equipped, fresh and easy to live in chalets. Each offering: full kitchen, 3 separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (bath and shower), perfectly furnished and spacious enough for groups of up to 8 per chalet, and at the same time, still cosy enough for a break away weekend for 2.

Combine both chalets for a relaxing getaway and get-together for the whole family.

Kinmel is perfectly situated at the heart of some of South Africa’s most spectacular mountain passes. Very near to the foot of Naude’s Nek pass and a mere 20km from the Tiffindell ski resort and mount of Ben McDhui (the highest peak in the Cape). Ten of the country’s top and most spectacular high altitude mountain passes are within easy reach from the farm.

Apart from our child friendly chalets, complete with fireplace, the perfect ‘stoep’ for a ‘braai’ and out-stretched lawn, Kinmel is also a fully functional and active farm. Many a sheep bleating away adds to the farm’s peaceful and refreshing atmosphere. Only topped by trout meandering in the farm’s crystal clear personal stretch of the Bell River, a mere 500m from the chalet, making Kinmel a fly fishing hotspot.

Daytime hiking offers a possible glimpse of the endangered Bearded Vulture as well as various other wild life and spectacular flora. Night time offers unparalleled star gazing.

Come Winter, Kinmel’s outstretched lawn can transform overnight into a white and snowy wonderland!

Kick your day of with an early morning hike, take a drive up some of our countries most spectacular mountain passes, spoil your fly-fishing rod with a scintillating sunset stroll down river…and as the quiet darkens settles….sit, breathe and put your feet up next to the crackling flames of a cosy fireplace.

Kinmel …where eagles come to stretch their wings!

Family friendly: Fishing, splashing, swimming, running and bike riding on large lawns and mountain tops! Explore the many walking and hiking trails. Relax and make a meal together on the big 'stoep', curl up at the fireplace. Family time at its best!

Romantic: Enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Drakensberg in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Breathe in the invigorating fresh air, and in the evening curl up together at a warm fireplace!

The cottage was very well equipped. Owners went out of their way to make us feel at home and gave us suggestions of what to do. Cycled part way up the beautiful Tiffendell road valley. Very happy with our selection!
