Old Mill Drift Guest Farm
Old Mill Drift Guest Farm is a pet friendly mountain paradise for couples, families and groups of friends who want to get away from it all. The farm’s fruitful landscape is enclosed in parts by forest and saturated with three natural springs, three dams (summer season only), a few small waterfalls, and various natural pools that will feed your soul. So if you’re seeking a peace and quiet that only the beauty of nature and the nostalgia of history can instil, Old Mill Drift Guest Farm is the place to explore.
The farm sports a collection of 5 chalets, 4 family lodges and ample grounds for camping and caravanning. The Old Mill Drift Guest Farm has different types of accommodation to ensure that we can accommodate everyone – all of which have spectacular views of the Maluti Mountains, Caledon river and way into Lesotho. Many of the original sandstone buildings still stand and guided walks through the farm are sure to reveal even more history!
All well socialised horse-friendly dogs, cats, caged birds and horses (and any other pets) welcome by prior arrangement.
Consideration must be given to resident dogs, horses, farm animals, birds and wildlife. If your dog is well socialised and won't chase our horses and foals (they will get kicked if they do, and we do not take responsibility for this if it happens) you can just let them run around freely with ours. If they are not, you will need to keep them on a leash at all times (unless you are away on your hikes until you are away from our animals).
CHARGE FOR PETS:
The first 2 dogs stay FREE; thereafter a fee of R50 per additional dog applies. If your animals will be sleeping inside and spending time in the chalets, we charge a R100 "Pet-Super-Clean" surcharge. This fee covers 2 pets. If you have 3 pets or more, the surcharge is R100 per pet thereafter. This is a once-off fee, not a per night fee. Doggie Damages Deposit required: R200
Chalets 2 and 3 have their own lockable pet enclosures:
Chalet 2: has a 14 x 4m devil's fork fence with fine mesh for those tiny tea-cup dogs. There is a gate at the back of the unit which is also accessible from the kitchen door. If you would like to go out for the day, they can have access to the kitchen and be outdoors in a lawned garden.
Chalet 3: Lawn and paved area (13 x 7m) enclosed with a devil's fork fence with access to the Chalet through the front door.
