Escape city life and enjoy some of the best farm stays Down South
We could all use a little breather from our chaotic, non-stop lives every once in a while, and nothing says relaxation like a weekend away on a farm stay.
Swap your blaring morning alarm for the sound of singing birds and let yourself go as you take in the fresh air, crisp mornings and sweet scent of nature.
Embrace the great outdoors (or just sit back and relax with a bottle of red) with farm activities for the little ones, local wine tasting, fresh farm produce and picturesque views on long, winding trails through untouched land.
Whether you’re heading down for a romantic getaway or family escape, you’ll find just what you’re looking for in one of these 12 best farm stays Down South.
