COVID-19 Update: A Message to our Guests

COVID-19 Notice from our Venue team:

We are certified to provide accommodation for all Essential Services workers during the Covid-19 lockdown.

For many of us, our way of life has changed dramatically over the past few months as we continue to face the challenges that COVID-19 brings. We feel so incredibly lucky to live where do during lockdown – still retaining the freedom to be outdoors, in nature, in our own backyard. Daily farm life continues, albeit at a slower pace than before, and our local wildlife have taken the place of our human visitors in this time (leopard, porcupine, brown and cape grey mongoose visiting regularly as you may have seen in our previous post!)

Our self-catering farm cottages are uniquely positioned to offer the perfect isolation retreat while providing you with the space to exercise freely and reconnect with nature.

Our staff have been informed and educated on measures to prevent contamination and spread of the virus.

We have implemented strict hygiene measures as recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Department of Health.

Our cottages will be well ventilated, deep cleaned and sanitized with a minimum of 24 hours between each booking.

Surface and hand sanitizers are made available for you to use during your stay.

Although we will not be offering daily servicing of the cottages during this time, should you not feel like cooking, a selection of farm cooked meals can be requested.

Booking requirements: Please note that we will require a copy of your Essential Services Certificate, Permit  and ID document when making a reservation, as instructed by the Dept of Tourism.

Kindly email or Whatsapp Semma on semma@aabadenhorst.com  or 0796526101.

We hope things will return to some version of normal soon and look forward to welcoming guests once again, we miss you…

In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy!

Warm regards,

Semma, Charl and the AA Badenhorst team.

The Stables cottage is secluded behind the cellar. Two shaded outside areas are great for dining and relaxing.

Staying Stable

We recently turned the old stables on the farm into accommodation.

This two bedroom cottage (each room with an en-suite bathroom) has an open plan kitchen and living room, two outside chill areas and a private splash pool.

The furnishings are luxurious but laid back, the bedding proper, the bathrooms unique and there will be fresh farm eggs and bread baked right here.

We are now taking bookings for March and April – head over to our accommodation page or contact semma@aabadenhorst.com.

Proper pics coming soon.

We’re in the Wednesday Club…

And you should be too!

Perfect Hideaways, who manages bookings for our farm cottage accommodation, have launched a cool initiative called The Wednesday Club.

Basically, every Wednesday, hideaways in The Club (which includes our properties) that don’t yet have a booking for the coming weekend are offered to you with one third off the usual rates!

There are some lovely places on their list, so be sure to sign up.

For more info on our accommodation- head over to the page on this site!

See you soon…

Come stay with us!

We had some professional photographs taken of our newly renovated accommodation options. Cause our iPhone pics just weren’t doing it any justice.

To find out more about these options; click here. And note that if you book directly with Semma we’ll make sure there is a bottle of house wine in the fridge when you arrive…
