An Unforgettable Farm Experience

Join us at Penwarn Farm, located in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, for a stunning farm escape.

Rustic yet modern, Penwarn Farm Lodge can be found just 25km from the quaint, little town of Underberg in South Africa.

The 6 self-catering homes lie in an exquisite valley surrounded by dams, wildlife, livestock, maize and potato fields.

Penwarn has 5 dams on the property with the choice of trout or bass fishing. Grab your fishing rod and throw a line. Take a kayak and explore the Bushman’s paintings along the rock face of the river. Bring your binoculars, our birdlife is just amazing. Take a hike to the waterfall and pack a picnic, dive into the crisp waters of our natural rock pool on our river.

The ambience of the farm is relaxed and is perfect for a variety of occasions including birthday celebrations, family adventures and romantic getaways. With 6 self-catering homes on the property, Penwarn can accommodate up to 45 guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to Penwarn Farm Lodge and providing you with an amazing farm holiday experience.
