Experiences at Penhill Farm

There is plenty to keep all generations active and happy at Penhill – dams and pools for fishing, canoeing or simply splashing about in, the best tennis court in the Karoo, boules, croquet, not to mention trails for gentle walks, more strenuous hikes and several fantastic mountain bike trails leading directly from the farm. While there are many delightfully picturesque spots where everyone can gather for meals, afternoon tea or sundowners, there’s also more than enough space on the 3 500 acre property with its well-tended garden to find quiet time alone with a book. Where better for a nap than propped up under a tree beside the dam?

Penhill Farm lends itself perfectly as a venue for weddings, yoga retreats, brain-storming workshops, in fact any event where accommodation in luxurious homes coupled with immersion in a gloriously beautiful mountain environment is what’s needed.

The dam

Jump off the jetty, go swimming, make use of the paddle boats and feed the ducks.


Undoubtedly the best tennis court views in the Karoo


The farm has two petanque sets and a gravel court.

Bird Watching

The area is rich in bird-life, approximately 47 species


There are 5 hiking trials from the farm, one leads up to a gorgeous natural rock pool – ideal spot for picnics on sweltering summer days.

Mountain Biking

Perfect place for the serious mountain biker – 3 trials originate from the farm – in fact the 2018 Cape Epic route went through the farm.

Family Biking

There are 6 bikes for guests to borrow – cycle the 7km to Saggy Stone Brewery for wood-fired pizza and craft beer!
