From R275 PPS

Overview

Winter snow, Summer Green, clear mountain streams, breathe the purest air - Just a taste of what Kinmel Guest Farm has to offer.
Enjoy peace, tranquillity, breath-taking beauty and spectacular views of mountain peaks and valley gorges. At the foot of the Naude's Nek Mountain pass, this piece of paradise is perfectly situated in the Southern Drakensberg, a mere 26 km from South African ski resort, Tiffendell. Kinmel Guest farm is also just outside the historic village of Rhodes, putting guests close to shops, restaurants and other activities Rhodes has to offer.

Self-catering accommodation at its best. Kinmel Guest Farm offer fully equipped, child friendly, comfortable lodging in 2 self-catering chalets as well as a studio apartment. All accommodation has its own private braai area boasting magnificent views, as well as a warm fireplace to end off the day.
A holiday farm for all seasons! Summer splendour of cascading waterfalls and lush green mountainsides in contrast with the magnificent colours of autumn, pitch-black perfect night skies, and picturesque pure white snow-covered Winter mountains.
Enjoy invigorating hikes in the surrounding mountains, swim in the river or play in the rock pools, go fly-fishing, walking, bird watching and mountain biking, top that with Winter snow-skiing at the nearby Tiffindell. Savour the scenery on many famous mountain pass trails, enjoy a leisurely picnic beneath the willows down by the river, or you can simply put your feet up, relax and enjoy the splendour which the Southern Drakensberg has to offer.

Wild rainbow trout swimming side by side with elusive yellow fish abound in the Bell River, making it a fly-fisherman's paradise. Kinmel has its own stretch of the Bell River, specifically reserved for our guests only. The region also boasts a number of dams and more than 200 km of rivers and crystal clear running water in which to cast your fly.

We also are a fully functional active farm where guests and especially children are invited to acquaint themselves with a variety of farm animals. We fully support the principles of ecotourism, defined as responsible travel to natural areas, which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local inhabitants.

Guest Comments

Very enjoyable in a lovely setting and well organised by the owner, Willem.
- Tony Cummings

Our hosts were very hospitable, the unit was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. We felt very much at home and the scenery was breath-taking.
- Ilse Krige

Beautiful surroundings, peaceful atmosphere. I would recommend staying at Kinmel to everybody! (Pity it is so far from Pretoria and tarred roads; or I would be a regular guest.)
- Anette Stolp

Great stay! Very friendly welcome and great people to have met
- Sonja Fourie

For our group of six +70 year old men Kinmel worked well although climbing the stairs after a 20km walk each day was not enjoyable but did us good I'm sure!! Facilities were good and even though all six had baths/showers in quick succession the hot water never let us down. Kitchen/dining facilities were excellent. Beautiful setting and once the sun went down there was nothing to disturb the peace except us.
