Seaforth Farm is a full-blown treat of a guest house. Trevor and Sharneen have many interests, talents and motivations and Seaforth is a constant source of stimulation. Sharneen is a celebrated artist producing striking landscapes in oils that guests cannot resist taking back home to remind them of their South African holiday. The house blooms with extravagant floral displays and paintings. Trevor is both an official tour guide and a skilled craftsman and much of the furniture has been made in his workshop from exotic indigenous woods… and it is highly accomplished work. The garden is lush and wild and envelops everything at Seaforth in tropical colour. The produce from the organic garden will always make its way to the breakfast table, with a variety of fruit and veg, real farm eggs and pure, raw honey. Trevor is the largest local bee-keeper and enthusiastically shows guests around the apiary and honey extraction rooms. In fact the entire working farm is a hive of activity. The lovely multi-coloured Nguni cattle decorate the grassy paddocks below the sun-deck where breakfast is served. Laying hens run among the pawpaw and banana trees and then there’s the dam with its abundant bird life. Trevor is coaxing it in with a cunning plantation of pond weed, lilies and islets. The guest house provides large, well-equipped bedrooms, a pool and thatched summerhouse with dam and sea-view for heavenly breakfasts or to simply relax in.. or near the pool. Finally, the staff have a stake in the success of their venture. A pioneering guest house indeed…. Zulu spoken.
