Numbi Valley Permaculture Farm, De Rust

 The Most Beautiful Place to Stay in the Klein Karoo

Stay at Numbi Valley Permaculture Farm

We pride ourselves in providing clean, comfortable, peaceful and luxurious off-grid accommodation on our beautiful permaculture farm.

There is only one guest cottage at Numbi Valley Permaculture Farm which provides luxury off-grid eco accommodation. We fully renovated an old laborers quarters to give you stylish comfort nestled amidst the tranquility of nature. Our farm is located in a magical isolated valley affording views dominated by the magnificent Swartberg mountain range. Staying with us means falling asleep and waking to the varying light as it plays across the mountains and the soothing sounds of nature. 

Listen to and watch the abundant life on our farm from your comfortable veranda, or cool down in the spring fed fresh water plunge pool during the hot Klein Karoo days.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has two single beds and there is a lounge area with a convertible double futon. Percale linen, snug blankets, towels and hot-water bottles are provided. A cozy fireplace in the lounge area will keep you warm on winter evenings, there is a dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom has a shower with water heated from a 200l solar geyser or on cool days there is a unique and efficient hot water donkey boiler that heats shower water and also heats the bathroom beautifully.. 

The fully equipped self-catering kitchen comes with all the pots, pans, cutlery and crockery you need while our gardens act as the freshest grocery store you'll ever shop in. If you don't feel like cooking indoors you can cook under the stars in the outdoor firepit with grids, tongs and a potjie pot provided to use. Don't feel like cooking at all? We can make you a delicious wood fired pizza in our cob oven using fresh organic veggies direct from gardens to table 

There's a music system in the cottage as well as free uncapped wi-fi. 

Who said off-grid farm stays can't be luxurious?

"The style of cottages are amazing - rustic and original cob building but with every comfort possibly imaginable. Kath's pizzas are not only a plus to the place but also a reason to go to Numbi. Silence, peace, beauty of nature - you can really disconnect with all comforts - perfect!"
