Drayton is one of the oldest farms in the Overberg area. The original mill that dates back to the mid 1700's, is still on the farm, as well as part of the original wagon route.

About the farm

Surrounded by rolling hills of yellow and green, lies our quaint farm, Drayton. The majestic abutting mountain has been watching over her since the beginning of the Overberg.

This paradise has been our home for the last twenty years. Our loving and random family consist of Mom René-Louise, Dad Tienie and the kids – Kobus, Lize and Michiel. Drayton is a working sheep-and-grain farm. Each year we plant Canola, wheat, barley and oats with lots of love and care.

On & Around The Farm

We had a lovely weekend at Piet-my-Vrou cottage and the children absolutely loved staying on the farm. Rene-Louise was absolutely brilliant, so friendly, and baked delicious bread. Thank you very much!

Rene brought us delicious, freshly baked bread to enjoy with our dinner and Tienie brought firewood. We spent the afternoon sitting on the patio and marveling at the incredible bird life in the area. The water is mountain water so not good for drinking, but perfect for everything else. We had warm showers and comfy beds. It was a lovely, relaxing way to spend the evening.

The containers are just the right size if you need a soft, clean, bed to climb into after a day mountain biking in the area. We enjoyed our stay – and especially reflecting on the adventures of the day while sitting by the fire at night.

Iets anders met ‘n pragtige uitsig op die berge. Hier kan jy kom rustig raak. Luister na al die voëls se gekwetter, hoor die kraanvoëls en uile en kyk vir die berge en mooi sonsondergang.

Baie lekker, mooi en rustig. Het baie lekker gebly, het soveel karakter, wens ons kon bietjie langer bly. Was ook lekker naby aan die trou-venue.

Thank you very much we had a wonderful time and totally fell in love with the place. We will definitely be booking with you again for another stay.

If you’re looking to ‘unplug’ for a while … go stay at Piet-my-Vrou to experience the truly authentic farm atmosphere. The cottage is quaint and has all the basics your heart could desire! We’ve been back for a visit (short and longer stays) 5 times … and hope to come back again many more times!
