Wyndford' Autumn news...
Guests were on the edge this morning, literally! It’s been a busy week with abseiling and zip lining as well as covering nearly all the Wyndford walks. We are into that wonderful time of year, with crisp clear days and chilly evenings – perfect for hot chocolate round the fire.The Autumn palette this year has been particularly spectacular, with the Liquid Ambers along the drive looking stunning. It unfortunately doesn’t always stay around for long, as one stiff puff of wind and all the leaves end up in a pile on the ground!
…….and those blue suede shoes? … have to keep a lookout for them!!
Rambo, it would appear, has once again been busy as we are expecting another little lamb at some stage – it has to have been achieved before black jack season as they would otherwise still be attached. Close attachments were also formed in our pig family as we have another five babies – great fun to watch their antics! Dandy did himself an injury to his forehead – a horse with a headache is a sorry sight indeed!
Wyndford will shortly have a new generator which will run the whole farm and not just the main kitchen block – an unexpected upgrade… but one we felt necessary for our guests continued comfort (and stress levels!). The lounge is slowly taking shape, with the new stained glass lampshades and some of the upholstery back.
With temperatures already down low, we have had our first frost, the garden is slowing down with the last of the summer carrots finding their way to the rabbits instead of into the kitchen, thanks to young Cassidy, Sebastion and cousin Hannah! Ooops…
May sees the Spiderman (he does Butterflies too!) here on the weekend of the 15 – 17 May – well worth a trip down with the kids to learn and enjoy. Remember also, that June, July and August school holidays are out of season for families so a 20% discount applies to all four night or longer reservations.
Congratulations to Helen Berriman - our monthly draw winner of a two night stay out of season for two people! Head off to the website to enter on www.wyndford.co.za and we will keep you up to date on www.facebook.com/WyndfordHolidayFarm
Warm greetings from the Wyndford Team!
