About Hillside Farm B&B

We welcome you to friendly hospitality and peaceful surroundings of a beef and timber farm. Hillside Farm B&B, has a scenic view overlooking a farm dam, teeming with bird life. See buck and guinea fowl grazing approximately 100m from the cottages.

Hillside Farm B&B is the ideal stop over from the Kruger National Park en route to the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast or vice versa.


Our two cottages are called Butterfly Cottage & Guineafowl Cottage.

Butterfly Cottage:
This cottage is ideal for a family of four. It has a bathroom leading off the main bedroom and two single beds upstairs. There is a small kitchenette with a microwave, kettle, fridge and a hotplate (on request).

Guineafowl Cottage:
This cottage is somewhat more luxurious and perfectly suited for a couple, keen to escape the city or relax after a long drive. The cottage has a King Size Bed, which can be converted into two single beds. There is also a small kitchenette, built-in braai and patio.

Breakfast and Dining

English or continental breakfasts are served on the verandah overlooking the pool and dam or if preferred, in the cottage. We also serve dinner on request.


Guests can enjoy walks in tranquil surroundings on the farm. We have a bird hide on the dam for those who enjoy bird watching. For the keen fisherman, the dam is the ideal place to relax, just remember to bring your own rods. Our dam is also perfect for canoeing and rowing boats. We have an ideal mountain bike terrain through our plantations.

Our swimming pool can be enjoyed by those who want to relax and soak up the sunshine. If guests are interested in seeing the farming activity, drives can be arranged to do so. Arrangements can also be made for the following activities: game viewing, horse riding and hunting.

Verified reviewexcellent

Hillside is in the most wonderful location, the view of the property as you arrive is beautiful and the view from the property is equally so. Liz and Gerald are the perfect hosts, our dinner and breakfast were delicious. We stayed in the delightfully appointed Guinea Fowl Cottage, which was extremely comfortable in every way. We couldn't fault the whole experience and were sorry to leave after only one night.

Verified reviewexcellent

Our family of 4 spent a night in butterfly cottage. Liz greeted us on arrival and showed us around our cottage. The cottage is small but tastefully decorated and there were many thoughtful touches such as homemade rusks and fresh roses in each room, The cottage is set in the beautiful gardens of the farm homestead and has a view over the dam, where our two teenage children enjoyed boating in the small rowing boat supplied. The next morning we were served a enormous and completely delicious breakfast on the veranda of the family home. I would also recommend the lasagna, salad and home made bread Liz offers as a optional extra. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer!
