Numbi Valley farm is a wonderful example of off-grid, sustainable living. We have abundant organic gardens, a self built cob house, a spring fed fresh plunge pool and an olive grove all in a very beautiful and peaceful valley in the Klein Karoo. There are scenic walks and cycling routes, yoga sessions, fresh produce from the farm and excellent massage on offer. Numbi Valley is the ideal base from which to explore the Cango Caves and the magestic Swartberg pass route through to Prince Albert returning via Meiringspoort with its beautiful waterfall and folded mountains..
We offer only one beautiful self catering cottage in a secluded valley near the Little Karoo town of De Rust. We practice permaculture on the farm and live entirely off-the-grid(although you wouldn't say its any different to a escom based cottage) The clean and cozy cottage is very comfortable, with a queen size bed in the main bedroom, two single beds in a second room and a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. There is an indoor fireplace for cold winter nights, a fully equipped kitchen with a solar 150l fridge/freezer and gas oven/stove, open plan lounge and dining room and 24 hour electricity from the solar panels.
If you are interested in sustainable living Kath and Ross are happy to walk you through the organic gardens, self built cob houses and solar systems. Enjoy the fresh veggies and fruit in season from the inspiring permaculture gardens that are a few steps away from the cottage.
You can enhance your farm stay with a rejuvenating herbal outdoor cob fire bath, or have us make a delicious wood fired pizza.
We look forward to welcoming you to our farm, be it for a stay in the cottage, a permaculture tour, for a yoga class or massage!
Kathryn and Ross transformed the land at Numbi Valley from a degraded Ostrich farm devoid of diverse life to an abundant life-filled healthy system. They're passionate about permaculture and sustainable living and love to share their experience with others. Both qualified with BSc Agric from Natal University and obtained their PDC 25 years ago. They worked for years as bush guides and lodge managers at upmarket lodges all over southern Africa and so are uniquely suited to make your farm stay memorable.
Kathryn is a certified (YTT 500hr) yoga instructor and is also certified in Trigger Point massage therapy.
"Loved this place. Ross and Kath are inspirational. The veggies are amazing, the views are awe inspiring, and the simple peace and quiet combined with the warm welcome were just what we needed"
