House on 215

It’s easy to get lost in nature at Farm 215. The 800-hectare private nature reserve between Stanford and Cape Agulhas is a conservation-first retreat, recently upgraded for self-catering in absolute eco-friendly comfort. With over 30km of hiking, mountain-biking and horse-riding trails on the reserve, there are so many ways to explore – and so many beautiful things to see. The farm trails reveal soaring black eagles and darting sugarbirds, rock hyrax and antelope, the tracks of leopard, bar-eared fox and cape clawless otter, and perhaps the resident baboon troop, who may be seen on one of the rocky outcrops.

And then there’s House on 215, which used to be the owners’ house and is now a modern two-bedroom home boasting rolling views over the farmland and fynbos-covered hills. It comes with everything you need for a magical weekend away, including a spacious lounge, a fully equipped kitchen, a private garden that leads to a covered lapa and braai area, and a wood-fired hot tub or summer splash pool (depending on your preference and the season) at the back.
