Escape to it all at Fairhill Farm, a private self catering house situated on a nature reserve.
A unique fynbos experience in the heart of the beautiful Cape Overberg.

The Fairhill Experience (Self-Catering)

Welcome to Fairhill Farm, a piece of private heaven. Beautiful vistas of mountains, fynbos and sea. A unique quality of silence that is balm for the soul. This private self catering home sits on 200 hectares of pristine coastal property and is all yours to explore and enjoy. Take a leisurely walk savouring the smell of indigenous herbs and fynbos; a splash in the grotto pool; or just sit on the veranda taking in the gorgeous ocean views while identifying the varied birdlife. Take a meandering drive down to the beach ( you will need a 4x4) and walk in splendid solitude for miles.
