A wonderful welcoming experience from the moment we drew up in the car park. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, the meals were magnificent and the rooms delightful, with ostrich leather slippers and fluffy cotton dressing gowns provided. We were treated like members of the family. You must go out on the 7am ostrich tour and help Neels to feed them. Charles Crosbie Jan 2011
We had a wonderful stay at Skeiding Guest Farm and enjoyed the scenic views, the farm tour and the breakfast a lot! Definitely a place that I would like to come back to. We stayed in the self catering cottages and they were very cozy and nice. Katrine Fredensborg Jan 2010
