Den Hagen Farm

Den Hagen Farm is nestled in the Carlislehoek valley in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg mountains. It is 7 km from the historical National Monument village of Rhodes and is 14 km from the Tiffindell Ski Resort.
Den Hagen Farm has a large old farmhouse as well as three cottages all fully equipped for self catering. Maximum capacity for the entire farm accommodation is 22 adults and 4 children. Children may replace adults, but daybeds are not really suitable for adults to use. The games room offers guests a meeting place to play games such as as table tennis, fusbal or flick or simply watch TV on a big screen. Picnic areas are also available.

For the sports minded Rhodes is popular among participants in the annual 52 km Rhodes Trail Run and Mountain Biking. Its proximity to Tiffindell makes the resort easily accessible (the road is steep & curvaceous!). Skiing is available at Tiffindell from June to August every year and is 14 km from the farm. We transport guests to the Ski resort, if required.

The area is internationally recognized for its wild trout & Alpine flowers (booking & guides by prior arrangement). The mountains & streams invite hikers to indulge in the fresh air and crystal clear water – yes it is safe to drink. Birds of prey & vultures are often to be seen (occasionally Lammergeyer/bearded vulture & Verreaux/Black Eagle).
