About Old Rearsby

Old Rearsby is an established bed & breakfast in the Natal Midlands, bordering on Hartford house, and Summerhill horse stud farm, that caters for guests who are in search of comfortable, country style hospitality.

Our historic 100 year old farm consists of a gracious Victorian farmhouse, complete with wrap around verandas and broekie lace. Our 3 luxurious cottages are set in 2 acres of manicured English country garden, guarded by graceful old oak trees, with an unobstructed view of the magnificent Giant’s Castle mountain range.


Our 5 well appointed cottages are equipped with microwaves, fridges, tea & coffee facilities, electric blankets, log fireplaces (ideal for romantic winter evenings), and have their own private veranda, and barbeque facilities. Our linen is all the softest white percale, topped with duck down pillows.

Old Rearsby has the best vantage point from which to see the glorious dawn and sunset colours, whilst sipping on wine selected from our wine cellar.


Wake up to the sound of the country and enjoy one of our legendary breakfasts, served in the farmhouse dining room, in front of a roaring log fire. We do cater for vegetarians, and grow our own organic vegetables on the farm. Our home grown, free range chickens supply us with lovely farm fresh eggs, and our milk is collected daily from our neighbouring dairy farmer.


If a decadent shopping spree is what our guests have in mind, they will not be disappointed. The Midlands Meander is pandora’s box, all of it’s own. From décor, to linen, beautiful jewelery, to fine art galleries, sculptors, ceramics, wood turners, glass studios, and even our own little fairy shoppe.

Not for the faint hearted, is the midlands hot air ballooning experience. Weather permitting, you will be taken on a hot air ride over our beautiful countryside, and Drakensberg foothills, failing which, guests could take the opportunity of horseriding, trout fishing or berg hiking. All of the above must be booked in advance.

We had a lovely time at Old Rearsby, my boys could run around freely on the farm and they loved the wide open spaces...
