    The farm has great historical significance. The homestead which is the original British Garrison at Trompetter’s Drift and has been tastefully renovated and restored providing luxury accommodation and facilities. The military fort with lookout was completed in 1843. It served to protect the early British Settlers during the Frontier Wars from the Xhosa forces massed across the Fish River. Sir Harry Smith used Trompetter's Drift as his temporary headquarters. Close to the fort is a graveyard with a memorial stone in remembrance of the British and Colonial Soldiers and Settlers who died during the Frontier Wars. A little further is a second stone in remembrance of Dick King's epic ride.
    The main homestead is spacious with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an open plan lounge, dining and entertaining area. The other three wings of the fort now accommodate guests with 2 double en-suite bedrooms, a 2 bedroomed flat with private lounge and kitchenette, a separate lounge with pub, pool and games room and the office. In the centre of the garrison is a large pool surrounded by lush lawns. There is covered parking for 6 vehicles and a large workshop.
