If coming from the Port Elizabeth direction on the N10 towards Cradock, travel 13.2KM past Paterson. Eventually on your right you will come accross the Kromrivier Road turn off, you will need to turn onto Kromrivier Road. Once on the Kromrivier road we are located 14.7KM down Kromrivier Road on your left hand side. The thatch buildings give away our position nicely.
