About Penwarn Farm Lodge

An Unforgettable Farm Lodge Experience
Join us at Penwarn Farm, located in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, for a stunning farm lodge escape.
Rustic yet modern, Penwarn Farm Lodge can be found just 25km from the quaint, little town of Underberg in South Africa. As you drive down the Khyber Pass, you’ll be greeted with the all the beauty that Penwarn has to offer.
The farm lodge lies in an exquisite valley surrounded by lakes, and borders Highlands Farm which was established in 1886. Over 3400 hectares of land is farmed by the fifth generation of Nicholson’s, raising cattle and sheep and planting maize and potatoes for the market.
Sharing the grasslands are zebra, hartebeest and blesbok. Birdlife is of abundance and the cranes and wild geese can be spotted from the comfort of your room. Penwarn truly is an animal enthusiast’s paradise!
The ambience of the farm is relaxed, rustic, and modern, and is perfect for a variety of occasions including weddings, conferences, family adventures and romantic getaways.
Penwarn Farm Lodge has its own chapel, which is situated near the beautiful lake overlooking the Drakensberg. Within the venue, we also have the famous Penwarn Bar which offers guests a thirst-quenching drink and a place for a bit of banter.
We look forward to welcoming you to Penwarn Farm Lodge and providing you with an amazing farm holiday experience.

Safari: At Penwarn you’ll find that you’ll be sharing the grounds with zebra, blesbok and hartebeest. Penwarn is also just teeming with interesting birdlife, and species of crane and wild geese frequently visit the farm.

                          Aside from the most attentive staff, who really went out of their way to try and ensure that we were comfortable, we will note Penwarn in our list of destinations as one which we won’t hurry back to visit. Certainly no effort to maintain it as a trout fishing attraction. Accommodation was very run down and in need of all round maintenance. Although we only opted for one meal in the dining facility, we were disappointed in any event - from an empty breakfast urn, to milk that had clearly been standing for a while, to dead flowers on the table.....Establishments response:Dear Lisa Thank you...

                          A very quiet and picturesque place.Definitely the place to go to if you need to escape the city and hustle and bustle!We had a disappointing Sunday breakfast experience though! Wanted to spoil dad on Fathers Day with what we expected would be a typical farm breakfast!Only to be told: No omelettes, no cheese, no baked beans, no scones and no toast was offered to our table! So NOT worth the R85 per person we paid!This put a little damper on the weekend, but was still a pretty place!
