Peas on Earth offers guests the opportunity to absorb life on a tranquil farm on the picturesque Wild Coast. Our accommodation is situated on Mpetukop Farm, approximately 20km from Komga, Kei Mouth, Morgan Bay and Haga Haga, meaning our guests can enjoy all the coastal highlights from one location.
Our 6ha small-holding is a working farm, producing fresh, naturally grown herbs, fruit and vegetables for the local market. We also keep pigs, horses, chickens, bantams and ducks. Guests wishing to explore the farm and learn more about its inner workings are welcome to do so. For those that would prefer to simply sit back and enjoy the atmosphere, we will make sure the farm respects your privacy.
Guests at our B&B will have the opportunity to indulge in a breakfast of our home produce, including home-made butter, cheese and preserves; free-range eggs and bacon; and a selection of seasonal crops. Lunch and dinner can also be provided if required, but will be charged at an additional rate.
As ardent animal lovers, we know that many people want their pets to enjoy their holidays and weekdays away as much as they do. Due to this, we welcome both dogs and horses to come and stay at the farm with their owners.
In addition to the attractions of the popular coastal towns in the area, our neighbouring farm, Ocean View, also boasts a Natural Heritage Site, and Wild Coast Horse Trails, just a few kilometres down the road, have a wide range of trails and horses – as well as some of the best beach riding in the world.
Peas on Earth is also well-situated for hikes and scenic drives – if you’re really lucky, you’ll even see a rhino from the front stoep!
Our accommodation comprises of a self-contained unit consisting of a double bedroom, en suite bathroom (shower only), a small open plan kitchenette and living area. Each room also has its own patio and private entrance.
Fern Cottage is situated 320 metres from the beach (you can hear the sea when lying in bed at night) and is ideal for couples.

The pulse of the River is felt in everything here: whether you are gliding along in our kayaks, hiking to hidden pools, fishing for the legendary cob, or simply watching sunset turn the cliffs to gold as the crowned cranes fly home to roost.

Experience the essence of Africa with a mountain bike tour on the Wild Side – Eastern Cape’s, Wild Coast. Dramatic cliff faces, jutting headlands, hidden waterfalls and deserted beaches. Kickback under a milkwood tree, explore the rusted remains of the numerous shipwrecks along this shore, or discover the myriad birdlife and pristine estuaries which abound this rugged coastline.
There's no better way to appreciate the diversity of this untamed coast than from the vantage of your saddle, as you wind your way from cliff-top to sandy bay, across grassy plateau and up forested-tracks, passing through rural villages along the way. Experience the warmth of amaXhosa hospitality and get an insight into traditional custom with community and backpacker-stays, or treat yourself to the old-world charm of family hotels along the way.
At over 300km in length, with a labyrinth of coastal and inland trails to chose from, the Wild Coast offers diverse trail riding options. Trips are generally run over full and new moon periods, where we take advantage of the wet hard beaches created by the Spring low tides.
Active Escapes offers a number of MTB tour options along this untamed coastline. Whilst a good measure of fitness and previous mountain bike experience comes recommended, a keen sense of adventure, and an appreciation of nature, is the only qualifier you’ll need to participate in one of our tours.
The traditional Wild Coast Cycle Tour follows the Imana Wild Ride race route from Kei Mouth in the south up to Umngazi or Port St John’s. This 200km race is completed over 4 days, which can be done with fit and experienced groups. However, we tend to trip the route over a more social 6 days, with the second and last day being split into two ride days. We also usually take a well deserved rest-day somewhere enroute to fully appreciate the landscape through which you are passing and re-energize on some of those good pondo vibes.
We offer private tours to groups of 6 persons or more, otherwise keep checking our ONLINE EVENTS CALENDAR for scheduled tours.
Our tours are professionally guided, catered and supported with vehicle back-up, but if you looking to run the trip independently ( without vehicle back-up), we can certainly help out with route advice, accommodation bookings, and end-point transfers.
