The space
Unknown area of South Africa that is peaceful, safe with beautiful landscapes and mountains.

We can make arrangements for larger groups on the farm and the use of neighbors farms. Up to about 25 people.

Or if the guest house is booked on your dates, please send me a message and we can make a plan as we have a few farm houses on the property.

Google maps is pretty accurate but sometimes lack the local knowledge of farm roads. If you coming from the Northern Parts of SA take google maps to Barkly East and just before Barkly East (about 2km) turn left onto the gravel road, first fork in the road stay right and then the first T junction turn right, then the farm will be on your left about a further 8 km after the T Junction, it's also on google maps as Glengyle Guesthouse. About a 40 minute drive from the turn off near Barkly to Glengyle Farm to give you an idea of the distances.

If you coming from the Southern parts of SA take google maps to Barkly East, stay on tar roads all the way, go through Barkly and then turn right onto the gravel roads and then follow the directions in the above paragraph.

Once you at the Glengyle farm turnoff, drive down the main farm road and about a 1 km down the road, where the road ends you turn left into the guesthouse which is brownstone building.

Also remember Barkly is the closest town for supplies and fuel, plan accordingly.
