Despite being so near to the city, Lighthouse Farm Lodge is a peaceful, quiet and tranquil venue with rivers rolling through some of the last remaining farmland in central Cape Town. When you’re not exploring the city, spend some time at the lodge and be welcomed into a green community and farm village atmosphere. Spend your time meeting like-minded travellers, horse riding or taking a tour of Oude Molen Eco Village, where you’ll learn all about aquaponics, compost and companion planting.

Guests have the option between affordable, self-catering Dorm Rooms, as well as comfortable Double Rooms and Family Units. Bedding and linen are supplied, and guests are invited to make use of the fully-stocked self-catering kitchen, cosy lounge with satellite TV, a secure garden and barbeque area and a wonderful book swap library, perfect for travelling book worms.
