Nestled within the enchanting embrace of Ancient Earth Farm, Chestnut Homestead beckons nature enthusiasts to embark on an extraordinary retreat.

This idyllic haven, situated on the sprawling grounds of a biodynamic garden farm, offers a truly immersive experience, making it the perfect getaway for families seeking a self-catering escape. The homestead not only opens its doors to human guests but also extends a warm welcome to furry companions, ensuring a complete family experience.

Ancient Earth Farm, the backdrop to Chestnut Homestead, is a vibrant tapestry of Pecan and Olive Trees, a flourishing kitchen garden boasting fresh vegetables, herbs, and healing plants, and a nursery cultivating a variety of green life. The landscape is a testament to the farm's commitment to biodynamic practices, fostering a harmonious coexistence between nature and human habitation.

The homestead itself is a comfortable and warmly eclectic retreat, featuring an open-plan kitchen, a inviting fireplace, and a boma for gatherings around the fire. Surrounded by a fenced established garden, a vegetable garden, and a refreshing swimming pool, Chestnut Homestead is a sanctuary within a sanctuary. As winter descends, the garden transforms into a tapestry of greens and reds, with parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano, marjoram, rocket, celery, lettuce, fennel, peppers, and cabbages ready for foraging and feasting. For those seeking a touch of luxury, fresh jersey milk and butter can be ordered from neighboring farmers.

For the adventurous spirit, a winter's day hike to the top of the Witwatersberg mountains unveils a breathtaking panoramic view of the Magaliesberg, providing an opportunity to connect with nature's grandeur. Back at Chestnut Homestead, a well-stocked fireplace and electric blankets ensure warmth and coziness during chilly evenings.

The homestead's charm extends beyond its natural surroundings, offering a curated library with books spanning various genres. Guests can unwind on the back or front verandas, tracing the sun's journey from sunrise to sunset. Accommodation options include the adjacent Writers Cottage, accommodating two, and the Main Homestead, with a capacity for eight guests. Each room opens onto a garden patio, and both the back and front verandas offer different perspectives of the farm's beauty.

The farm itself spans an impressive 93 hectares, reaching up to the summit of the Witwatersberg mountains, making it a haven for hiking and cycling enthusiasts. For those seeking additional services, catering, and cleaning is available upon request. The lush and green landscape, combined with nearby yoga sessions and bicycle rides around the farm, ensures a holistic and rejuvenating experience.

Located on the Magalies Meander R560, Ancient Earth Farm is in proximity to mountain hiking and cycling trails, country restaurants, and various tourist attractions, providing ample opportunities for exploration and relaxation alike.
