Established in 1947, Wylie’s Dairy Farm is the oldest producer/distributor dairy in South Africa. Upper Gletwyn was the original home of the Rubidge Family. The farm belonged to the Jolly Family and later the Duffield Family.
Their main business is Wylie’s dairy, which means that visitors stay on a working farm, only 12km or 10 minutes from Grahamstown on the N2 highway between Grahamstown and King William’s Town. In the area we are renowned for our top quality yoghurt which contains no preservatives.
Wylie’s Dairy Farm is ideally situated for guests attending the National Arts Festival as the N2 takes one straight to the Settler’s Monument where numerous events take palce. This prevents one from becoming frustrated with Grahamstown’s one minute traffic jams!
The farm has a fully equipped, self-catering cottage which sleeps 4-5 people. Hostess trays are available. There is also a charming self-catering rondavel with a double bed. If necessary, a single bed can be added on request. The bathroom is en-suite. The rondavel is attached to our home, but has it’s own separate entrance.
Scenery is picturesque and there are plenty of interesting walks. Secure parking is available.
