The Kingwill family has been farming in the area for four generations. Our connection to the land runs deep in our veins.

Iain and Paula returned to the farm from Cape Town in 2010 to support Paula’s parents, Robert and Phillida Kingwill, with the cattle farming and have been working on The Rest farm since then.

Here you will find a workshop space made from the earth and filled with light and love. You are invited to join one of the Reconnect series of dramatherapy workshops that take place throughout the year. We also welcome facilitators whose work resonates with our own to offer workshops in this inspiring space.

We offer accommodation for weary travellers. We have two rustic, family sized, self catering cottages available on the farm. Individuals may also choose a homestay in a room in our family home. In the summer months, camping is a fun and good value option. This is a perfect place for families to go on adventures together and also have enough space for themselves. Couples will love the opportunity to spend time together without the distractions of the city. Solo travellers will enjoy the chance to bask in the silence with the option of joining the activities on the farm when they tire of their own company.

Visitors are able to participate in farm activities, go on long mountain hikes, mountain biking, bird watching and star gazing.

We experience the seasons acutely up in the mountains. Snow is not uncommon in winter and summer floods create dramatic patterns in the landscape. The spring is celebrated with beautiful veld flowers and the fruit trees are their best as they display their blossoms. While we rarely experience the searing heat of the lowlands, hot summer days are enjoyed in the river sheltered by the poplar grove. Autumns are dramatic, as the forest turns from green to red, gold and orange.

Homemade bread, farmstyle meals, grassfed Karoochoice meat and eggs (when available) can be purchased on the farm (bread and meals need time to make). We are one hour away from the nearest grocery shop so you need to bring everything else!
