About Bramleigh Farm

Set on a regenerative farm, forming part of the Lionís Bush conservancy, with an ethos of environmental stewardship and restoration lies this eco-friendly retreat-style guesthouse, nestled between mountains and indigenous forest in the KZN Midlands in the foothills of the Drakensberg.

Bramleigh Farm is tucked away on a secluded hillside providing the ideal opportunity for a quiet, country getaway with no TV or cellphone signal (high speed WiFi offered throughout). Walking trails through the grassland provide extensive views over the valley and mountains, possibly spotting a reedbuck, oribi and duiker. Enjoy a peaceful, soul-restoring walk through the indigenous forest, below age-old Yellowwood trees, with the very shy Samango monkeys swinging from branch to branch, abundant birdlife and calming streams. Or simply curl up with a book next to a wood burning stove, relax on the patio and soak up the fresh country air, be soothed by nature.


Our accommodation supports sustainable tourism, without minimising on comfort. Experience guilt-free, comfortable country accommodation powered by the sun complete with electric blankets, energy efficient lighting and appliances, beneath the shelter of thatch insulation. Wood burning stoves efficiently heat the rooms, using sustainably harvested alien wood on our property. Water is supplied from a forest stream, filtered and ready to drink, cool, straight from the tap. Natural cleaning products provide a fresh fragrance.

Visit our chickens and geese who happily gobble any organic waste and provide rich fertiliser for our market vegetables in return. Enjoy a guided tour of our regenerative permaculture farm with an emphasis on restoring and revitalising top soil to provide nutrient rich food, improve water storage. Sample farm fresh organic produce and eggs.
