Blanco Guest Farm
Deep in the heart of the Eastern Cape interior is a place that’s always ready to remind you what holidays are all about. Allow Chris and Kim and the Blanco team to welcome you to Blanco and experience for yourselves the reality of countrystyle hospitality.
Blanco Guest farm is warm and friendly and its unique formula makes it the ideal getaway for those who want to simply relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Surrounded by the vast natural beauty of the Winterberg Mountain range, you will enjoy a stay that offers relaxation, hearty meals and great companionship. At Blanco you will appreciate life again as you experience the peace of unhurried days and nights.
Blanco Guest Farm is a registered nature reserve situated 14km from Tarkastad, 296 Km from East London and 320 Km from Port Elizabeth. A National Geographic study some years back found the climate in this area to be one of the healthiest in the world. Country Living Accommodation is in rustic cottage style rooms which are situated within the gardens around the main building.
There is a choice of twin rooms, three quarter family rooms or two bed roomed family rooms. All are serviced daily and have private bathrooms. There is also the slightly more upmarket Manor House, which consists of 4 two-bedroomed family suites and one ¾ room. Perfect for family and friend gatherings, the Manor House has a central lounge area with a fireplace. Blanco also caters for conferences and group functions and is one of the few resorts that has its own landing strips.
Blanco and little children go together. Kiddies are welcomed as special guests and we try to make Blanco as “friendly” for them as possible, where they are free to explore, play and eat without too many restrictions. Many a child with fond holiday memories has returned years later with a new generation of children to explore once again the charm of Blanco.
