Pet-Friendly Cob Cottages in Wilderness
The Funny Farm Shire is a charming and unique Self-Catering accommodation situated in the Lakes District of Wilderness.
Enjoy country living at its best surrounded by the tranquility of nature, beautiful lake views and a choice of three lovely cottages. Each Cob House cottage is professionally built, cozy, individually decorated and fenced off, making this an eco-friendly, value-for-money Garden Route Pet-Friendly Holiday Accommodation.
On-site attractions and activities include the Lonely Mountain Trail, an easy 30 minute walk which is fun for the entire family, pets included. This pathway leads through the property’s private eight hectares of indigenous forest with relaxing places to stop en-route whilst taking in the views over the lakes. Resonating The Lord of the Rings theme, Gandalf’s Wishing Well and Gollum’s Den on the forest walk are loved by all visitors, young & old.
Situated in the heart of the Garden Route, The Funny Farm Shire is an ideal base from which to explore other local attractions and activities such as the Wild Oats Market in Sedgefield and Wilderness beaches. The famous Malachite Bird Hide is a mere 400m from the front gate and Langvlei Lake, which is a large protected bird wetland and an internationally designated Ramsar site, is on your doorstep as well. Bird watching, day hikes and mountain biking trails are within easy reach.
Ideal for couples, families, bird and nature enthusiasts, cyclist and group of friends.
