About our home

Situated in the heart of the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands on a farm within the Dargle Valley Conservancy, just 6kms from the N3. There are sweeping views of Midmar dam and the idyllic Dargle valley and Midlands countryside, plenty of space, all the necessary comforts, and lots of style.
Sleeping up to 12 people, this is a perfect venue for large groups of family and friends. The converted farm shed is the most unusual, and welcoming venue and its open plan design lends itself to a myriad of adventures.
The space is vast and comfortable with an open fire place where leather couches sit comfortably with fabric sofas, woven carpets, and long dining tables predisposes the area to languid, gourmet lunches or dinners. Large glass entrances on either end of the building, gives one the feeling of being outside, inside.

The house is private, has a fully equipped kitchen, and an open fireplace with ample wood provided. There are also warming blankets for cold winter nights. We also provide fine cotton bed linen and bath towels. You may request servicing of your house.
There are braai (barbeque) facilities available.
Our farm is 3 kms from Midmar Dam where one can fish, sail and water ski. Midmar Mile swimmers and other sporting visitors will find this an ideally convenient location. We are also well situated to access many of the Midlands schools.
Being in the heart of the Midlands, there are plenty of places to visit and thing to do- one can retreat, relax and unwind or tour the midlands and enjoy all the activities available in the area.
There are beautiful walks on the rolling hills and forests of our farm. View buck, bird-life and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. The 70 hectare farm has ideal cycling terrain.
Hillhouse has been featured in Elle Decor, House and Leisure, Getaway and Midlands Life magazines.
