About

DikkopVlakte is a Farm, Guesthouse, Event and Function Venue

It all started with a dream... A dream to see hearts healed and buildings restored.
Its about LOVE…. for God, His creation, nature and especially people.

Set in tranquil surrounds on vast “vlakte-veld”, this beautiful house is situated on a 4300ha working sheep and goat farm owned by Tommie & Carine van Kerken and their 3 beautiful daughters.

The lovely 1892 Country House on DikkopVlakte is only an hour and a half from PE, 25 min from Grahamstown and Bedford and very easily accessible from the main road. This is the place to find rest and to restore your heart, spirit and soul. Arukah, meaning a place of healing and restoration...

There is a lovely big farm dam for swimming during hot summer months, board games, books, dvd’s, beautiful trails for walking and mountain-biking, 4x4 tracks and....... magnificent sunsets......!!!
You are welcome to bring your DSTV decoder and card, but sometimes it is just much better to enjoy the quietness and relax….

It would be an honour for us to have you as our guests!
