About Fawncastle Estate

Fawncastle Estate, set in the heart of Hillcrest, is a mere 15km from Pinetown, Hammersdale and Cato Ridge and is the perfect setting for an evening’s rest after a work day or pottering about 1000 Hills.


Each room is individually appointed, air conditioned and with own DStv decoder, flat screen television, fridge, microwave and comforts to make sure your stay as comfortable as possible. Staff are on hand to attend to whatever you may need, from a cuppa to dinner.

Each room has its own electronic safe to store your valuables when away. The rooms are serviced daily, and there is a choice of rooms, either with a shower, or shower and bath. Guest amenities are provided.


Children of all ages are welcome, and subject to a nominal charge depending on age. There are cot facilities available for those who need it, and babysitting can also be arranged at an extra charge.

Additional Facilities

The property is fully walled, and has a double electric fence, to ensure the safety of guests. A night guard is on duty from 19h00 to 07h00, so our guests can rest assured that they are safe and secure.


We have two conference rooms, the largest capable of seating up to 50 delegates, whilst the smaller can cater for up to 12 delegates.

Each room is fully equipped with data projector, flip charts, white boards and delegates supplies. Our in house chef will delight you with her home cooked lunchtime meals, where we offer a choice of three dishes to your delegates.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were clean and well kept. I have stayed at Fawncastle on several trips to SA and plan on returning in the future.
