Eric’s Place

Farmhouse - by Jon Minster of GO! magazineNamed after my late granddad Erich Reschke, Erics Place, the original old farm house was his home for 19 years. Renovated in 1999, Eric’s Place now offers down to earth, self catering accommodation painted it in happy bright colours with timber floors and clay tiles in the kitchen. It has a big veranda with a hammock, large table and a triple ground braai (BBQ). Only a 5 min walk from farm dam – No fishing. Awesome views are complimentary and so is the free early morning rooster call to add to the farm atmosphere, while the tortoise mow the grass in front.
