Description

Penny farthing is an upmarket Guest House set in a park-like garden on a tranquil Beef and game farm in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields. It is graced with over 200 bird and 12 game species close to Rorkesdrift and other famous Battlefields. It is in a safe and Malaria free area 1,5 kilometres above sea level. The guest house has 6 en-suite rooms with doors leading into a Park like garden. One of the rooms is in a Fort on the property dating back to this turbulent past.

Anne Schreiber, the domestic manager, cooks scrumptious meals using mainly home produced fair and will make you feel welcome with her bubbly personality. Your host, Foy, grew up on this property and with over 70 years experience is a tour guide of note. He will keep you spell bound with his knowledge of the battlefields and other details of this area. He guides tours to most battlefields where his and late wife's ancestors were actively involved. (Foy's maternal ancestor was second in command at the battle of Bloodriver, his grandparents were Natal rebels in the Anglo Boer War and his wife's great grandfather, Dugald Mac Phail was one of the 17 survivors of the Battle of Isandlwana).

The house is furnished with antique furniture and has a lounge with a large fireplace and DStv where battlefield videos are shown.We have a licensed bar where most popular drinks are served. A large swimming pool in the garden is available for your use as well as a large fish pond. Walks and hikes are available on this property.

You will have a lovely stay with us.
