Our B&B is found in the Valley of a Thousand Hills.
This is a lovely scenic route wanders inland up Fields Hill, past the select residential area of Kloof, the charming village of Hillcrest, and into the rolling countryside of Botha's Hill, Assagay and Drummond. Off-shoots of the route take visitors through the Krantzkloof Gorge, along the valley floor following the course of the Umgeni River and down to Shongweni with its dramatic sandstone cliffs.

Highlights of the 1000 Hills Experience are interactive Zulu cultural villages, microlighting, bush drives, horse trails, nurseries, canoeing, children's animal farms and game viewing. As you journey along the route, you will be delighted by the variety of crafts and the opportunity to watch artists at work. Enjoy warm hospitality at roadside pubs and country hotels with breathtaking views over the Valley. It's close enough to drive for a day trip, and if you want
to linger longer you can stay with us where we will make your stay truly enjoyable.
