Halstead Farm is an Addo Bed & Breakfast providing accommodation in 3 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Greater Addo region.

About Halstead Farm

Halstead Farm is a double storey 'Provence style' farmhouse built just before the turn of the 20th century when the Sundays River Valley came into prominence as a citrus growing region.

Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, author of the South African classic tale 'Jock of the Bushveld' pioneered the citrus development in the valley by bringing water, via canal system, to this fertile region. On many occasions he and other of the valley's early pioneers would use the vantage of the double story balcony to view the expanding agricultural developments of those early years. While the main house today remains our residence we have recently opened the guest cottage to visitors.


Accommodation at Halstead is in a separate cottage from the manor house with 3 en-suite bedrooms all individually decorated in the typically colonial style. All of our bathrooms are complete with bath and separate showers. Each room contains a fan, mini bar, table and chairs. Room one boasts a piano.

All rooms lead onto a wide decorated veranda overlooking a private garden. The cottage has a separate driveway and entrance to the manor house which assists guest to come a go at will. All guests have access to enjoy our swimming pool set in an enclosed courtyard.


Each morning a full cooked breakfast is served between 07h45 and 10h00. A continental breakfast with cheeses is set out simultaneously on the buffet. Carmen, Miriam and Maria are on hand to look after your needs. We offer limited laundry and baby sitting facilities.


Halstead Farm is centrally positioned to explore the Sundays River Valley and the Addo Elephant National Park. The Sundays River Valley is typical of many farming communities with various farm stalls, polo club, library, etc.

The 'Lookout' burial site of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick has the most wonderful viewing platform built over 50 years ago from where an elevated perspective of the whole expanse of the valley can be gained.

Activities and Attractions

Halstead, a mere 10 minutes drive from the Addo Elephant National Park, serves as the perfect launch to experience all the Safari activities of the area. For a taste of some of the experiences:

Alternatively, we can arrange for excursions into other game reserves in the area, like a visit to Shamwari Born Free Foundation or Bushman Sands Golf Course or Game Reserve.
