THE OLD FARMHOUSE
The old Farmhouse is situated on the hill above the Langebaan Yacht Cub. Follow directions to the Farmhouse Hotel, drive 20 metres past the hotel parking area and turn left into Sandpiper Close. The property is 20 metres up the hill on the left, #3. It is within easy walking distance to Sandy Bay using the shortcuts without the need to cross any busy roads. Safe bathing, boating and prawn pumping.
The main house used to be a large storage barn and the cottage was always the volkshuisie. Both of the buildings were part of the original huge farm with the current Farmhouse Hotel being the main homestead. In the Cape English colonial days the homestead was called the Residency and it is said was at one time a school. The oldest name of the farm was “Meeuwenklip, which the average Englishman would not have been able to pronounce, hence the change to the Residency.
The old Farmhouse sleeps 10 in total, 6 in the main house ( 1 x queen, 1 x double and 2 singles) and 4 (1 x queen and 2 singles) in the volkshuisie. In the main house there is a double bedroom downstairs and another double bed and 2 singles upstairs in the loft. The loft has a traditional separate outside staircase entrance. Large bathroom with ample hotwater. The volkshuise has been renovated into a separate open plan cottage with it’s own bathroom.
A warm “siesta” room is attached to the northern end of the garage. The quietest and warmest spot on a howling southeaster afternoon!!
Huge open plan kitchen in the main house with adjoining lounge and living area with massive original fireplace and indoor braai facilities for
those chilly winter nights.
Indoor braai, walks, boule (petanque) and a variety of games.
