Horseshoe Guest Farm

Nestled in the foothills of a picturesque and un-commercialised part of the Drakensberg, Horseshoe Farm truly is an undiscovered gem.


Escape the city, find some silence and come home to the nostalgia of good living and slow food. Our welcome is as hearty as our cuisine! At Horseshoe the owners of this working farm receive you with old fashioned hospitality. A delectable seasonal menu is prepared by inspired chef – Koot Dippenaar. With 25 years of experience in function coordination and a passion for personal service and quality, Horseshoe Farm is the perfect place for a getaway, wedding, group retreat or conference.
