Welcome To Skeiding Guest Farm

Skeiding is a working farm near Heidelberg in the Western Cape. Situated halfway between Cape Town and Knysna on the N2, this homely family farm is popular with both locals and tourists.

It’s considered the ideal stopover on a journey to or from the Garden Route – but you’ll most likely end up wanting to stay an extra night or three.

Boasting panoramic views of the Langeberg Mountains, Skeiding exudes a sense of innate tranquillity, old world charm and warm hospitality – ideal for a rejuvenating weekend away.

Your hosts, Neels and Anné-Lize, are two energetic people who love life. You need to be able to run a farm, family and a guest farm in the same lifetime.

GORGEOUS!

We could not have had a more enjoyable time. Beautiful setting – just incredible view. Loved the farm tour, the kids loved feeding the ostriches and seeing sheep herded. On top of it all the food was great!

Our experience at Skeiding Guest Far has been beyond any we have had before in a B&B. The welcome that Neels and Anné-lize give you is wonderful. They invite you right into their home and family. Food is wonderful and beautifully presented. The morning ride around the farm with Neels was brilliant. Also, the ostrich steak. Thank you so very, very much. Hopefully we will be back.
