Liefgekozen is situated near the town of Lothair in Mpumalanga on the Ermelo/Lothair road. Lothair is a small town near the Swaziland border. It is famous as a destination in itself for the Giant Footprint, but also for the lake district that lies between Lothair & Chrissiesmeer. The economy of the town is driven largely by forestry and mixed farming. Lothair is situated in an area settled by Scottish immigrants brought here by Alexander McCorkindale. It was surveyed in 1878 and named after Lothair, the novel, written by the famous Benjamin Disraeli.


Liefgekozen farm was owned by Cornelius van Rooyen who also owned the farm Lothair. He was responsible for the establishment of the town Lothair, or peri-urban area as it was known. Liefgekozen farm is now owned by his eldest son Leon & his wife Susan who have been farming on this typical Highveld farm for the past 29 years.

On the farm there are three self-catering accommodation options available – the Sandstone House, the Sandstone Rondawel and the Gray Cottage. All three units are in close proximity to one another. The entrance to the units are secured with a safety gate and guests are provided with a remote. Braai facilities are available as well as three lock-up garages and a tennis court.
