Accommodation on an old Cape farm in a mountain valley above the village of McGregor. Fully equipped for self-catering.Meals by request. Dstv, billiards etc available in separate area. Swim, and canoe and valley More river walks. McGregor and environs offers great restaurants and wineries and other attractions but there is plenty to do on the farm itself - including sitting back and admiring the view. Less
