Spendpenny Guest Farm consists of a newly built farmhouse with 4 en-suite bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, large verandas, a guest toilet and a lovely fireplace for the cold winter evenings. A separate bungalow has one en-suite bedroom, a guest toilet, a kitchenette and a very large lounge, which can also be used for conferences/team-buildings. There is also a large bush kitchen with a bread oven, potjie facilities and a braai area
Spendpenny is situated on Doornpoort farm near Koster and offers quality accommodation, ideally suited for a weekend breakaway. The beautiful scenery, highlighted by the Elands River winding through the farm offers a great location for a relaxing stay in the bushveld.
The location of Spendpenny is unique because it forms part of the large farm Doornpoort which had a great influence on the district since 1854. John's sister, Jenny, is married to Bun Malan, a direct descendant of Patriarch Koos Malan, who bought Doornpoort in 1882. Bun had it as one of his goals to consolidate the original farm, which has since been divided into several sections. He has to a large extent succeeded and today Bun & Jenny Malan owns large portions of the original farm.
Spendpenny's owners have entered into a co-operation agreement with the Malans whereby large portions of the vast farm are also made available to Spendpenny's visitors. These include:
