About The Funny Farm Shire

The Funny Farm Shire offers a peaceful country retreat, situated next to the wetlands of the Garden Route National Park, overlooking Langvlei Lake. This eight hectare farm offers comfortable accommodation in two cottages resonating The Lord of the Rings theme in the buildings and farm surroundings.

Each house sleeps four people, is fully equipped for self-catering, and is enclosed with a fence and gate, making it ideal for families with children or pets.
