Old Kilgobbin Farm is one of the oldest pioneer farms in the Midlands, with the homestead’s construction finished in 1875 by Meredith Fanin. The Bronner family have made this beautiful 200 hectare farm their home since 1996 and love sharing it with fellow nature lovers.

Self cateringaccomodation is offered on the farm. Our large cottage, Gobbin’s Cottage, can sleep up to 6 people, with 3 bedrooms. The main bedroom upstairs has 2 queen size beds, the downstairs one has 2 single beds (with a loo and basin ensuite) and a tiny room called the Cubbyhole which has a solid bunkbed in it. There is a full bathroom with shower and bath. A large lounge-kitchen with a woodstove fireplace is the gathering space and the veranda is the perfect place for lazy meals.

Our small cottage, The Chicken Coop, is a quaint bedsitter room with 2 single beds with a little lounge nook with a woodstove fireplace, and a kitchen nook on the closed in veranda with a little dining table for cosy meals.

The Cairn is our barn, which we use for small functions such as weddings, educational courses and the Horseplay clinics. When not booked for functions, it is a marvelously spacious home for families or groups of friends as the kitchen, lounge and dining room are large and comfortable. With a large fireplace to warm it on cold nights, and wide verandas with many doors on warm days, it is a wonderful space to spend time in. There are 2 bedrooms, one with 4 single beds and another with two single beds. The bathroom consists of 2 basins, 3 loos and a spacious shower with a gas geyser and endless supply of hot water.

The farm offers beautiful gardens, plenty places to picnic on exploring hikes in the forest and across the grasslands. It is a working farm, so there is a herd of Angus cattle, births of calves to witness in spring. Also in residence is a herd of horses that are used for the Horseplay clinics (www.horseplay.co.za). Please note we do not offer riding here. There is a large dam with a boat house filled with stand up paddle boards, a canoe and paddle skis where long days can be spent lazing in the sun and cooling off in the water. There are trout in the dam and fishing is allowed on a catch and release system for guests only.

Old Kilgobbin Farm has become a home from home for many of our guests and we would love to add you and your family to ours!
