Request Farm Cottage
Nestled in the heart of a historic farm close to the quaint village of Bedford in the Eastern Cape, Request Farm Cottage offers a safe and tranquil haven and an idyllic secluded experience for their guests. Request is a working cattle and sheep farm, with a variety of game roaming the grass veld. It is just 2 hours drive from Port Elizabeth and East London and thus offers an ideal weekend break away for city dwellers seeking an opportunity to get away from it all. This four star self catering cottage sleeps four and is furnished in such a way to ensure that it really feels like home away from home
In winter, relax on the leather couches in front of the fire place, wrapped in a throw, listen to music in candle light or play one of the many family games provided. There is no television, as this is the time to really re-connect with family and friends. Laze in the morning sun with a magazine or book on the veranda offering a spectacular view over the savanna grass veld and Kaga Mountains. Take an early morning or late afternoon drive or walk and spot the many species of antelope on the farm or go fishing in one of the nearby dams.
Summertime is ideal to have a sun downer and “braai” while you watch the spectacular change of scenery as the sun sets through the Acacia thorn trees after a fun filled day of swimming in a cement dam, long walks in the veld, spotting some warthog and fallow deer, maybe a picnic on top of the hill where you can find your soul again, some fishing, quad or mountain biking.
"Absolutely Awesome! I'd imagine heaven to be a bit like this!"
