Take a look at what our previous guests have had to say

Wendy Le Roux

We spent the long weekend her with 2 other families. The facilities were amazing and so much space for us all and especially a games room for the kids to play in. Kid''s rode their bikes all over. Plenty of places to relax- 2 lounges, 2 dining areas and the lovely outside stoep. Fire places everywhere were put to good use. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. We followed the winter sun around the garden and stoep relaxing and playing boule, enjoyed every minute. The rooms are all lovely and comfortable, lovely en suite bathrooms with lovely hot power showers. Kids enjoyed the 6 sleeper kid''s room. Kitchen is well equipped. Couldn''t have asked for a better place to spend a very relaxing weekend. Thanks Gloria Farm, we''ll be back.

This is the most beautiful place, even now that the dam level is so desperately low. It is peaceful and quiet, and I have spent many days writing there, waking to the sound of the lowing of the neighbours'' cattle, watching the birds come to the water, and the sheep huddle expectantly around their feeding troughs. The air is clear (and cold in winter!),and the mountains are lovely. Villiersdorp is on the other side of the Theewaterskloof dam, and from there the mountain pass will take you on a spectacular drive to Franschoek. This makes the Manor House a perfect place for a gathering of book lovers to spend a few days during the Franschoek Book Festival - your book club, perhaps? I should declare my interest, in that 2 of my sons are partners in this venture, and I have watched over the past few years as they have all worked to build it into the lovely place it is today. Now that they are opening its gate, I hope many others will be able to enjoy it too.


Fantastic Air BNB accomodation on a lovely horse farm. Peaceful, tranquil and secluded. Fully equipped manor house with all amenities and lovely hosts to welcome you to your stay. Lovely for big families or groups for a weekend away. 1 and a half hours drive from Cape Town.


Amazing! You won’t be disappointed, it has everything you will ever need: stunning location, spacious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms and kitted out kitchen. We will recommend Gloria’s farm to all we know. Looking forward to booking my next stay.


A wonderful place, beautiful accommodation, fully supplied kitchen (everything you could need and more), comfy beds and great towels. I celebrated my 21st birthday here with friends and family and it was beyond magical. The staff at Gloria farm are helpful, very quick in their admin and extremely accommodating. I couldn''t have chosen a better place to spend my special day. Would highly recommend, especially for large groups.


This house is quite a experience. In a beautiful setting this old house has been exquisitely restored and decorated to a level of luxury that guests will enjoy. It is extremely well equipped and guests can just sit enjoy while cooking and relaxing. I would highly recommend Gloria farm .

A visit at Gloria farm is like reading a good book. At first we were a little apprehensive. The route there is not easy, the location is slightly far off....but hour by hour the place grows on you. The uniqueness, the character of the place unfolds. At the end you feel so sad to leave that you can hardly bear that you have reached the end. We were 3 families at Gloria farm (age 3 to 71) for 4 days and truly recommend it. 30 min from a day trip to Franshoek and 30 min from one of the most amazing adventure experiences ever - cape canopy - we can highly recommend a visit. We fell in love with the place and confident you will too.

We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Manor house with more than enough space for our party of 10. The old farm house is very charming with the best stoep (patio) for long lingering afternoons of relaxing or reading a book. There was so much space for the kids to run and explore. The swing under the massive tree and the trampoline were a total hit. Great rides out from the farm house alongside the dam which were very special. You’re spoilt for choice with different areas to have big sit down meals with the entire family, adding to the special time together. I would recommend bringing your own water-sport equipment to enjoy on the dam which is just a little walk down from the house, lots of fun for the whole family. Just watch the gusty wind if you have little kids on boards, it can get pretty strong, pretty quick.

On driving through the gates of Gloria Farm and rounding the first bend in the gravel road, you are captivated by the most spectacular view overlooking Theewaterskloof Dam. You know you have reached your destination! The Manor House literally takes your breath away...the charm of yesteryear, beautifully renovated and restored, stylishly furnished, immaculately presented, offering total privacy from each bedroom and the most delightful kiddies bedroom with loft room- a hit with our two older grandchildren! The kitchen, for me, was a hit! So well equipped, spotless, an abundance of glasses, coffee mugs, plates, cutlery and beautiful salad bowls and platters! The courtyard off the kitchen was a fun space for sundowners and early braai''s. The elevated patio, with lovely comfy couches, was where we spent most of our time...enabling us to watch our grandkids playing in the garden, jumping on the trampoline and swinging from the tree rope. Beautifully manicured gardens, so well maintained, surround the house on all sides. We loved our stay, we will be returning and certainly passing on our experience to friends and colleagues. Thank you for a great getaway with our family.


If it''s peace and quiet that you are after, look no further. Stunning views, comfortable accommodation and plenty to do for runners, mountain-bikers and watersport junkies. Our kids had a blast and were exhausted come sunset every eve. We enjoyed our stay and surely plan to return.


Loved it! The beautiful old house, the breathtaking views. For me, this place has everything. Where else can one run, paddle, cycle, waterski in safety while taking in that beautiful scenery? Thanks Gloria Farm.


This is the perfect spot for a group getaway. The house is so charming and spacious, with each bedroom having it''s own bathroom. The positioning is perfect for mountain biking, water sports, or just chilling out at the dam. And the gorgeous patio, with views of the dam and the beautifully kept garden, is awesome for lunches and sundowners. Will definitely be back.


Awesome and peaceful place, Gorgeous kitchen with everything we needed. My husband would have liked to watch tv late at night.

Christine Hughes

Absolutely fantastic experience from booking the property online to our moment of departure. Bronwyn was a fantastic host and nothing was too much for her. The property was breathtaking both inside / outside as well as the views. Gardens were beautifully manicured, furnishings well thought out, amenities in perfect working order. can highly recommend and will be recommending to friends / family! Cannot thank you enough for making my dad''s 70th birthday week end away so extraordinarily special!


Our stay were fantastic! Clean white linen. Warm blankets on the beds. Fireplaces for the cold wheather. The children played outside on the lovely green grass. Beautiful views. Wonderful stay for friends and big families. Would highly recommend this farm!

Debra Payne

I chose Gloria Farm for my 60th birthday celebration with my family, and wow, I was not disappointed. Thank you Bronwyn for been an amazing host and for making the booking experience so seamless. It is an amazing place for a family or a group of friends to spend much needed time together. The Manor House lacked for nothing. From the wonderful kitchen, with it''s pantry and scullery, to the beautifully appointed bedrooms, the dining facilities, difficult to decide which one to use, the amazing views from the verandah, manicured lawns, the little ones loved the trampoline and the walks alongside the dam. A wonderful time was had by all and we were reluctant to leave. I highly recommend this beautiful farm. Food for the soul.
