About Amberleigh Guest Farm

Amberleigh Guest Farm is a working farm situated in the Lions River Valley in the KwaZulu Natal midlands, 12km outside Howick, easily accessible from the N3 highway.


The accommodation consists of three rondavels, two with double beds and one with two singles. They are fitted out for self catering with a television in each and internet and Wi-Fi is available in the main farm house.

The Lions River borders the property so fishing is available.


A full English breakfast can be provided with prior notice.

Activities and Attractions

We are situated on the Midlands Meander, The Gourmet Greek (fine cheeses and yoghurt and Abingdon Wine Estate (highly rated in Platters) with its world class restaurant, are our neighbours within easy walking distance. The Mandela monument, Midmar Dam, golf courses, Hilton and Michaelhouse schools and a wide choice of top class eating venues are within 15 minutes of us.

The countryside around the farm lends itself to walking, around the farm and in the hills surrounding the farm, as well as mountain biking as we have interesting rides through the forests and some of the best trails in the country, per kind favour of the Howick cycling club. It is a good idea to contact the club to obtain permission and advice as to the technicality of their trails.

Beaches, the Drakensberg, Boer War, Ishandlawana Zulu battle fields and Durban’s King Shaka international airport are an hour and a half away. If we know what guests would like to do when staying at Amberleigh, trips to local attractions such as the Karkloof Canopy Tour or the Hluhluwe / Umfolozi game reserve can be arranged.

Please Note

We do not have credit card facilities at the farm.

I had an amazing stay. It was like home away from home. The perfect little escape, with gorgeous scenery. The lovely couple were so accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from the busy city life and just relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the Midlands.
