Petervale Guest Farm welcomes your comments and feedback and uses it to guide and improve our services. Thanks for your feedback!


Nestled in the Ceres valley up against the mountains and under a canopy of Pine trees, this was truly a great find. Petervale Guest Farm ticked all the right boxes. With all this nature around for kids to explore and a dam that just adds more fun to the experience. The No Music policy adds to the tranquil and peaceful experience. For an added xtra you can experience staying in a Teepee which the kids are sure to love.

One of our kids highlights was feeding the animals and milking a cow with Reuben Roux. Feel free to bring your bike or walk the trail to a beautiful waterfall and see why they call it Gods Bath. The waterfall is not advisable for younger kids and the trail can get tricky.

Two things that added value to me was the fresh spring water on tap and sometimes hard to come by but a campsite that recycles.

Remember to bring lots of ice as there is no electricity but there is a communal freezer.

Thx again Reuben for an awesome camp

We had the best little getaway to this working farm in Ceres. The valley is very child friendly and my kids loved playing with the bunnies, feeding the ostrich and cheeky donkeys and watching the goose sit on her eggs.
Quince cottage was well equipped and the perfect spot to spend some quality family time. Reuben is a great host too. It was a very chilly weekend, but the fire places warmed us up nicely. Thank goodness for the hot blanket on the main bed!
Highly recommended spot! Ps. Bubbly tasting at Krone is superb too!

What an awesome place to spend a weekend. Ruben and his wife are extremely welcoming and accommodating. Bring the kids, milk a cow, feed the farm animals, catch some bass from a canoe, hike up the mountain to the waterfall and drink fresh spring water right from the source. An unforgettable experience, we’ll be back!

This place is the perfect place for camping and real relaxation. Reuben (The man that organized everything for us) was so accommodating and helpful. Been here twice and I’ll come back each time I need a weekend away 😁🌺
There is also so much to do for the kids and adults. Love this place 🌻

What a wonderful experience, our little one especially enjoyed milking the cow and feeding the various animals. We will certainly be back.

Excellent camping location. Dam was great for swimming. It’s a guest farm and milking the cow, feeding animals and looking for eggs in the hen house was great fun

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!

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 🙂

Wow what a fantastic place! The accommodation is perfect and Reuben 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.

Petervale is absolutely a piece of heaven. Doogy, Bambi, and the peacocks, The fresh wind in the trees on a hot summer’s day, the dam, the farm animals, the peace ,quiet and tranquility and a fun place for the kids and also the old, The awesome scenery at the river and falls, the wonderfully sincere hospitality of Reuben and his Team. East West to my family, Petervale stays the best.

We recently stayed in Petervale’s self catering accommodation and had an awesome time. There are lots of fun things for the kids to enjoy and nice hiking trails as well.

Petervale is an unspoilt paradise. Keep up the good work.

This was a perfect weekend.The extra effort into making this a rustic earthly piece of heaven is fantastic the farm animals is such a bonus for kids.
I am proud that there are individuals like yourselves trying to bring back the basics of life back to people. Fantastic experience and we will make this trip more often.

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!

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!!

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.
Theresa Green

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

Thank you so much for an awesome weekend. You really do have a beautiful farm and your love for it shines through.Will definitely be coming back again soon.Was our friends first camping experience and I think the bar has been set very high!!

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 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

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

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.
Karen and Michael Parker

I recently stayed on the Farm with my family, and for the first time in years, we all agree… this has hands down been the best holiday in years. The cottages are 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.
