Skeiding Guest Farm, Heidelberg (Suurbrak)

Skeiding is a working farm near Heidelberg in the Western Cape. Situated halfway between Cape Town and Knysna on the N2, this homely family farm is popular with both locals and tourists.

It’s considered the ideal stopover on a journey to or from the Garden Route – but you’ll most likely end up wanting to stay an extra night or three.

Boasting panoramic views of the Langeberg Mountains, Skeiding exudes a sense of innate tranquillity, old world charm and warm hospitality – ideal for a rejuvenating weekend away.

Your hosts, Neels and Anné-Lize, are two energetic people who love life. You need to be able to run a farm, family and a guest farm in the same lifetime.

1200 hectare working farm

Skeiding is a 1200 hectare working farm that’s home to a handful of free range ostriches, 1 500 Dohne Merino sheep and a small herd of Nguni beef cattle (a very hardy African breed). During certain seasons, we also plant and harvest 600 hectare of canola, wheat, barley, coriander and peas.

Skeiding Guest Farm is operated by husband and wife, Neels and Anné-Lize Uys. Neels is the farmer, socialiser, ‘braaier’ and farmtour guide, and Anné-Lize is the baker, jam maker and money taker. We believe in doing everything with “heart” – from the way we farm to the food we prepare in the farm kitchen, you’ll see and feel our passion in every tiny detail.
