About Hillside Farm B&B

We welcome you to friendly hospitality and peaceful surroundings of a beef and timber farm. Hillside Farm B&B, has a scenic view overlooking a farm dam, teeming with bird life. See buck and guinea fowl grazing approximately 100m from the cottages.

Hillside Farm B&B is the ideal stop over from the Kruger National Park en route to the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast or vice versa.


Our two cottages are called Butterfly Cottage & Guineafowl Cottage.

Butterfly Cottage:
This cottage is ideal for a family of four. It has a bathroom leading off the main bedroom and two single beds upstairs. There is a small kitchenette with a microwave, kettle, fridge and a hotplate (on request).

Guineafowl Cottage:
This cottage is somewhat more luxurious and perfectly suited for a couple, keen to escape the city or relax after a long drive. The cottage has a King Size Bed, which can be converted into two single beds. There is also a small kitchenette, built-in braai and patio.

Breakfast and Dining

English or continental breakfasts are served on the verandah overlooking the pool and dam or if preferred, in the cottage. We also serve dinner on request.


Guests can enjoy walks in tranquil surroundings on the farm. We have a bird hide on the dam for those who enjoy bird watching. For the keen fisherman, the dam is the ideal place to relax, just remember to bring your own rods. Our dam is also perfect for canoeing and rowing boats. We have an ideal mountain bike terrain through our plantations.

Our swimming pool can be enjoyed by those who want to relax and soak up the sunshine. If guests are interested in seeing the farming activity, drives can be arranged to do so. Arrangements can also be made for the following activities: game viewing, horse riding and hunting.
