About Hillston Farm

We invite you to experience true escape at Hillston Farm, a place of quiet beauty and glorious views. Experience genuine, warm Karoo hospitality with a difference.

accommodation

Hillston Farm is a Karoo farm providing accommodation either in a quaint ironstone cottage, built in the late 1800ís or in our remote country house. Meals are served in the farmhouse dining room or al fresco in the expansive garden. You can also do your own cooking in your fully equipped kitchen or enjoy a braai in the lapa or outside.

The Cottage:
The cottage has three bedrooms, a bathroom with bath and shower and separate toilet. All six beds have woolen duvets, electric blankets and luxurious bath sheets. There is an open plan kitchen, dining room and family lounge with under-floor heating. The kitchen is fully equipped for self - catering with stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, iron and breakfast counter.

Relax on the front veranda and watch the sun set with the guinea fowl and hadeda signaling the end of the day or have breakfast at the wooden combo set. Enjoy a braai in our Boer War Blockhouse lapa or outside in the garden (first bag of wood provided). From the garden a pathway leads down to an irrigation dam with a jetty and paddle boat. Children must be supervised.

Ample parking is available and there is a laundry service available on request.

Dining

Meals can also be provided by our on-site Cordon Bleu Chef if required eg: breakfast, brunch, lunch, high tea, dinner or a picnic basket.

Activities

Pause for a moment and experience true farm life: milk a cow, touch a sheep, feed a chicken or ride a horse.Hillston's diverse landscape provides a range of adventure. Look out for springbuck, fallow deer, blesbuck, mountain rhebuck, antbears, porcupines and more.

Visit our 100+ year old Boer War barracks, now used as the shearing shed for our Merino sheep and Angora goats. If you visit Hillston during shearing time, you can see our skilled shearers at work. All our shearing is done by hand. We also have a Boer War Blockhouse which has been converted into the braai lapa at the guest cottage. You can see where the bullet holes penetrated through the corrugated iron.

My wife and I could only stay one night on the way from the Southern Cape back to Johannesburg. But it was very relaxing and our very pleasant hosts...
