Come and stay

on a farm in the beautiful KZN Midlands countryside

Location

Situated in the Dargle, on a hillside overlooking Midmar Dam, 8kms from the N3, and 12kms from Howick. Hillhouse accommodation is an ideal central base to explore the KZN Midlands.

Relax, recuperate and unwind

There are two self catering guesthouses, sleeping up to 16 people, providing the perfect venue for large groups of family and friends or organised retreats and workshops. Both houses are private and secluded. There is plenty of space, all the necessary comforts, and beautiful peaceful surrounds.

Bring your walking shoes and bicycles to explore the farm when you come and stay. There are wonderful walks into our indigenous forests and grasslands on the farm where you will see many species of buck, birds and other wildlife.

Hillhouse accommodation is pet friendly.

At Midmar Dam, only a few kilometers away, one can fish, sail and water ski. It is an ideal location for sporting events at Midmar.

Being in the heart of the Kwa Zulu Natal Midlands, top restaurants, artists and artisans are abundant and in close proximity.
