  • We recently spent a weekend on Petervale farm in the self catering accommodation, with our 7 month old daughter and we all had a wonderful time. There are lots of fun things to do. Hikes and fishing for the grownups, farm animals for the little ones and beautiful views for all.

    Thanks for the wonderful weekend away Petervale Farm!

    Petervale is the food upon which relaxation feeds! So happy to have discovered this piece of paradise. I am sure we will be returning again and again. This is my number one destination this year! Farm animals, sunset boating, bonfires and laughter. Love it – Love it – Love it!

  • Wow what a fantastic place!
    The accommodation is perfect Ruben was incredible.
    We all enjoyed the animals don’t forget to take apples for the horse.
    The fresh milk and apple juice were delicious
    Swimming in the dam was great and the waterfall in the hills is the best I have seen.
    Can’t wait to take other people there this Christmas

    We stayed over the weekend past and what a great place, a real little gem! So wonderfully peaceful, a very scenic little hike to the waterfall and the animals are real bonus for the kids, especially little Bambi.

    We’re already planning our next trip!

    My recent long-weekend stay at Petervale was the most relaxing time I’ve had in a long time. What an amazing place, including shady campsites, decent ablutions, a wonderful clean huge lake to swim in, hike to a waterfall, lots of fun farm animals and super-friendly and helpful owners. This place comes highly recommended and I’ll definitely be back for a visit in the very near future. Well done Petervale!

  • Maggie Burger says:

    In two weeks we have been back to Petervale three times. Never have we stayed at a place where the owners are so friendly and helpful, the environment so clean and pure. This is definitely what paradise is made of and we can’t wait to come again!!

    Thanks so much to the Petervale team on making this an experience to remember 🙂

    Staying at Petervale was an awesome experience to say the least. A real paradise, the kids were so excited to work and play with the animals, the dam is clean and warm, the owner is friendly and helpful. We felt so at home. We miss it already. Will definatly be back asap. Well done Rueban. Suggestion. Why not put a feeding bin at each campsite for leftovers for those darling little piggies, or compost. Regards, and thanks again, you’r a real hit with the little ones.

    Our recent stay with our four kids were absolutely fantastic! Anyone looking for a real break away will enjoy the natural setting, and the peace that the farm has to offer. We loved the camping sites in the forest and off course the walk to the waterfall was well worth the effort. Wish we could have stayed longer, but will definitely return to try once again to catch those wily fish in the dam! Well done and keep your treasure as natural as it is. And off course the apple juice is heavenly!

  • Dean says:

    I was looking for a place to take my 7 year old girl camping as it is just dad and his little girl.. Well we definitely found the place and what an awesome couple of days we had. I found the shaded campsites perfect, the dam warm to swim in and all i can say about the owners Reuben and Tobias – you guys are legends in my eyes for your hospitality and always willing to help. The animals are a bonus and the farm dogs the friendliest i have come across.. will be back there soon and with friends this time.. thanks again.. Dean & Rayne

  • Karen Parker says:

    This is hands down the best campsite we’ve been to so far and could’ve happily stayed longer than the 11 nights we were there. Reuben and Tobias – you guys have managed to hit the nail on the head in terms of a well serviced campsite – we so appreciated the way you were great hosts but never intrusive. Petervale really is a very special little farm and Caleb (4 1/2) was in his element. And we loved our site- thank you! We’re sure to be back.

  • masood parker says:

    I RECENTLY STAYED ON THE FARM WITH MY FAMIL
    Y, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS, WE ALL AGREE…THIS HAS HANDS DOWN BEEN THE BEST HOLIDAY IN YEARS. THE COTTAGES WERE BEAUTIFUL, THE SURROUNDING BREATH TAKING, THE DAM REFRESHING…THE HIKING TRAILS AND AND AND…WE ALL CAN’T Wait to come back…thank you reuben and team…from the parkers…kensington

  • Marlon says:

    We celebrated our Daughter’s Bday on Petervale’s farm.WOW,did we all enjoy the fresh air,sounds of the Birds flying,screaming of the donkeys and the Bark of the Old Dog(like Jock).
    We already miss the calmness and the wonders of Nature(Woods,dam and beautiful Waterfall.).
    Special Thanks to Reuben for everything.

  • Petervale admin says:

    A very belated but truly heartfelt and sincere thank you for the wonderful time that we had at Petervale. The campsite was divine and the atmosphere so peaceful and relaxing. We loved walking down to the farm every morning to feed the animals – it was the highlight for the girls. We will definitely be back and my sister and her family are also keen to come on the next trip. Perhaps next time we will book Tipi 2 as well.

    As for the almonds and the apple juice, they were totally delicious. I am saving the last bottle of juice for a special occasion. And we loved the fresh, fresh water. Cape Town water just tastes disgusting after drinking Petervale’s… Missing that the most. Missing everything about the farm actually!!

    Myself and my girlfriend, along with another couple stayed at Petervale Guest Farm over the weekend of Valentines day. If I could sum up our entire trip in one word – AWESOME!
    The farm is really quiet and relaxing and everybody on the farm was extremely friendly (including the animals). I would love to go back sometime in the near future 🙂

  • Christine Roach says:

    We stayed in Lavender Cottage weekend past, and the kids just loved it. Our kids are 8 and 7, and normally I don’t let them go off by themselves, but this weekend they enjoyed their freedom so much. We took their bicycles with and they cycled all over, they must have gone down to the rabbits about 20 times!!
    It was truly a beautiful setting, with everything green and the fruit trees staring to blossom, it was absolutely great. Thank you for making it so child friendly, and allowing them to milk the cow and play with the animals.
    We will definitely come visit again.

  • Johann says:

    We spent the past weekend with our motorbikes camping at Petervale. This place is definitely top of our list of camp sites. Tranquil, amazing views and clean site. Great hike to the waterfall and rock pool. Awesomeness! Thanks to Reuben. We will be back. Johann and Christoff

  • viv connell says:

    I had the most amazing 60th birthday gathering at Petervale. A spacious teepee to collapse into every night after days of swimming, hiking, boating, potjie cook-ups, braais, high tea, champagne lunch and even a staged talent show. The good friends that came along thought that the farm with its delicious frozen apple juice and animal feeding times was beautifully child-friendly. We all agree that it is the most wonderful campsite near to Cape Town and we will definitely all be back. Thank you so much Ruben!

  • Karin de Pao says:

    We stayed at Petervale during the July holiday and were very impressed with the accommodation and hospitality. It’s peaceful and child friendly. Highlights for the children included feeding the animals, the waterfall hike and fishing. We all miss Lady the farm dog who we bonded with instantly. Thank you Reuben and co!

  • Petervale admin says:

    Thank you for a wonderful stay at Petervale and the great hospitality shown throughout our stay at this beatiful farm and camping area. We will definitely be back for another visit and some more fishing.

    Kind regards

    Hi Reuben
    I just want to say a big thanks to you for hosting us this past weekend. It was a superb family weekend for us and our children in particular cannot wait to visit again. You have a beautiful spot there and the animal interaction is special for children. I am sure you will be seeing us again some time in the not too distant future.

    Beautiful weekend camping in exquisite forest!
    Where does one even begin to describe this wonderland? Well, fistly, a big thank you to Reuben and his lovely parents. You guys are all amazing! We could not have asked for a better weekend than the one we had at Petervale. We slept in a tipi, under the pines at the waters edge. The forest is truly beautiful, pristine clean – we did not encounter one thorn all weekend and all of us were barefoot from Friday to Sunday. The children had the time of their lives! My grandson got to milk his first cow and both grandchildren fed all the farm animals – there is a guided tour and feeding of the animals at 9 a.m every morning. Children are also welcome to visit the animals throughout the day. The ablutions were clean and rustic. There is a canoe for your use, a tarzan swing for the children and frozen farm yoghurt and organic apple juice for sale. Two of the friendly farm dogs led us on our hike to God’s Bathtub, a beautiful deep rockpool and waterfall. Sleeping in a tipi was a first for all of us- spacious and great fun! You are even allowed to pitch your own tents around the tipi. The sites are very big and privately laid out.We will definitely return to Petervale – there is something about spending time in the woods that uplifts the spirits of all who do it. And so reasonably priced too! Thank you, Reuben and family, for a very special weekend!

    World Class.
    Enjoyed an amazing time at the campsite and spent hours swimming in the lake. Taking in the sights and sounds was really awesome and my family and i got more than what we expected. Will definitely be back soon ! Thanks Petervale , you are AMAZING!

    Great for school camps
    Our group of 15 families (for a grade 2 school camp) had a great experience camping at Petervale Guest Farm. Feeding and playing with the farm animals was a hit. The campsites are shady and I loved the sound of the trees rustling in the breeze. The awesome fire pits were conducive to socialising. The dam and rustic platform/swing were well used by the children. We hiked to the waterfall and really enjoyed swimming and drinking the fresh water. The reed and wood ablution facilities with vines growing in the toilets are quite fun for a camp site. There is a small shop selling farm produce (almonds with the shells on, frozen yoghurt).

We absolutely LOVED Petervale and the serenity of the place and hope to come back in summer to make the most of the wonderful surrounds and all that Petervale has to offer.It was incredibly special for us to spend Easter in such a tranquil place. And I think what we will take away as one of the best memories of the weekend, was that we witnessed the birth of the piglets and got to milk the cow.Those were awesome experiences and will definitely stay with me for a long time.

Many thanks for a wonderful weekend on your farm. The campsite is in a stunning setting and the services you provide are tip-top – the personal attention you pay to ensuring that everything is clean and “running” means that your guests really feel part of your farm “family”. This was our first time camping and was such a positive experience, that we will definitely be back !!! Wishing you and your brother many happy campers this year !!!!! Theresa and Ian Peddie
