The Valentine’s weekend concludes with a fun family themed day on the Sunday. While mom and dad are enjoying some much needed time together, the kids can keep themselves busy with the selection of Middelvlei lawn games or feeding the farm animals. Although a day traditionally set aside for couples times are changing and Valentine’s is more about spending time with loved ones, which can include the whole family.

Pre-booking for the platters via (select the Find Activities tab) is essential.
