We’ve just spent an amazing four days and New Year’s Eve at The Country House at Gooding’s Groves Olive Farm about 20km from Bonnievale. This restored Karoo-Georgian home has three large en-suite bedrooms and is furnished in a lovely, relaxed country style. I loved the exposed copper pipes in the bathrooms and kitchen which added a more quirky, industrial touch.
What I loved most about the house though was the gorgeous open plan kitchen and spacious living area which flows out onto the stoep. Sitting out on the stoep in the early mornings and looking out onto beautiful views of the valley was quite magical.
The farm is situated between McGregor, Bonnievale and Robertson so there’s plenty of exploring one can do and loads of farm roads for mountain biking. I’m definitely looking forward to visiting again!
