Old Beacon Hill Description
Welcome to Old Beacon Hill, once an old railway station at the heart of Kwa-Zulu Natal, now converted to beautiful self-catering cottages. Set in stunning surrounds and wonderfully located, we are the ideal platform to discover what the Drakensberg, the Midlands Meander and the historic Battlefields have to offer. Arts, crafts, game reserves, food and drink, outdoor pursuits, historical monuments, relaxation and sports are all within easy reach of the venue. Old Beacon Hill has four cottages on the land accommodating up to a total of 20 guests (and as many infants under three as you can squeeze in). We also have an exclusive caravan and camping enclosure that boasts their own shower and toilet. There are over seven hectares of land to explore that has a stream running along it, a torch-lit gazebo over-looking a pond and plenty of wildlife. On our doorstep there are beautiful drives and walks where you can see Bushmans River in all its glory and the first of many Battlefield sites. We are the ideal base for a lengthy holiday and fantastically positioned for a quick stop-over.
We are positioned in the Lowlands and set in the tranquil, picturesque KwaZulu-Natal countryside. Unbelievably this haven is less than a 2 minute drive to the N3 where there is easy access to all that is Drakensberg - only a 25 minute drive will take you to the heart of the Champagne Valley and its mountainous environment. If its arts, crafts, food and wine you’re after, then a 20 minutes drive will take you to Nottingham Road and all the Midlands Meander has to offer. Locally, there are beautiful drives and walks where you can see the Bushman’s River in all its glory and the first of many historical Battlefield sites- Willow Grange is about 5km away with a scenic drive that takes you up into the hills. You may want to visit a game reserve - the popular Weenen is only 25minutes away where you can see black and white rhino, giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other marvellous creatures.
Old Beacon Hill Directions
Leave the N3 at 'Estcourt South' and follow the signs to the Lowlands. Keeping 'Midway petrol station' on your right, head down a dirt track road for about 1km and you will see the Old Beacon Hill sign on your right.
