About St Andrews Retreat

Discover a sense of wholeness, of peace, of healing, of happiness. St Andrew’s Retreat near Mooi River in KwaZulu-Natal is ideal to use as a quiet and central base from where you can explore the Midlands, the battlefields and the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Mountains, or simply enjoy a restful stop-over en route between Johannesburg and Durban.

Once a beloved community Anglican church dating back to 1901, St Andrew’s has been saved from disuse through insightful restoration and transformation by custodians Jennifer and Paul Hindle.

Every comfort for a truly unique and restful self-catering getaway is at your fingertips. Perfect for a quiet, soulful retreat, an adventure, a romantic interlude, an anniversary or special occasion, a stay at St Andrew’s is a celebration of tranquility, nature, love and the greatest of life’s gifts and bounty.
