Come for a weekend break and you will find plenty to do without having to even move off the farm. In Summer swim, canoe or fish in the dam down the road. Unfortunately due to the prolonged drought the dam is currently dry. In the cooler months, explore the veld on foot or on your mountain bike. Watch out for buck, hare and a large variety of bird life including the farm’s name-sake barn owls.
A longer stay will give you time to relax, enjoy the peace of the farm and perhaps head out on some day trips. Drive or cycle to Ladismith via the scenic Dwarsrivier road. Stop at Mymering on the way to do some wine tasting. Seweweekspoort, with its folded orange rock faces towering above the road is 30km beyond Ladismith and well worth a visit. Port tasting in Calitzdorp and even the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn are within reach for longer days out. Return to Barn Owl Farm, soak off the dust of your travels and enjoy the spectacular star filled night far from the city lights.
