Far from the Madding Crowd
you want to get away from the madding crowd, Old Beacon Hill is the
perfect place to be. The accommodation is spacious and clean and has
everything that one needs. Old Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for
quick access to the N3 and the R103 allowing you to explore both the
"Battlefields" and the "Drakensberg Mountains." The hosts, Ed and
Adele, know how to be available and yet not intrusive. We look forward
to our next stay there.
Stan and Tilly Webster 21st August 2014
impressed with the lovely self-catering log cabin we stayed in for one
night over the weekend. Everything was supplied, even fresh milk in the
fridge! Lovely linen and thick towels as well as plenty of hot water.
Ed was welcoming and most hospitable.

was beautiful and tranquil. Staff are great, friendly and very helpful.
The accommodation was very large and spacious, well-maintained, fully

Definately worth a visit !
Draveena Lakhoo 3rd May 2013
is definitely worth a visit! We spent 2 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed
it. If it is peace, serenity and a view of nature you want, this is the
place to be. Space, walks, relaxing and typical home from home
atmosphere. Units are very well equipped and comfortable. Even for
camping - great. We will certainly revisit Old Beacon Hill soon.
Maria Hendrikz April 30th 2013
Wish we could have stayed Longer
stayed in one of the timber chalet units. It appeared to be new and was
extremely spacious, clean, and well-equipped for a long self-catering
stay. We only had one night but wish we could have stayed longer since
the setting was sublime, complete peace and quiet with a lovely river
flowing at the foot of the property. The owner provided an generous,
warm and professional welcome which made us feel at home as soon as we
arrived. Excellent value, highly recommended in any way.

had an amazing stay at Old Beacon Hill - just wished it could have been
longer. Ed is a great host and was even prepared to wait up for I was
going to arrive late at night. The cottage was SUPERIOR and clean.
Linen of outstanding quality and all neat. I will definitely go for a
longer period in the near future.
Andre Koorsten 26 Nov 2012
The establishment provides excellent
facilities for the price required. It is equipped with excellent
facilities for self-catering. The living quarters are designed and
decorated with taste and care. The hosts are helpful and amiable. We
were offered better facilities than those we made the reservation, for
the same price: the offer came from the hosts with no suggestion from
us - the better accommodation was available at the dates of our stay
and it was perfectly prepared.
Beata Gabrys 12 Sept 2012
Ideal for a weedend
We really enjoyed our two-night stay. As we run a shelter for abused women and
their children we frequently need short breaks, and this location is only about
an hour away making it ideal for a weekend.
Ivon & June Grindley-Ferris 19 May 2012
We are delighted at having found the ideal stop-over for us between Pretoria and
Shelly Beach, South Coast. It is close to the N3, the unit is spacious and meets
all our requirements. In addition, being keen birders, the potential for birding
looks good. We saw a nightjar as we arrived, as well as a buck, probably a
rhebuck, and scrub hares.
We have already made a booking with them for
our trip home. Will definitely recommend Old Beacon Hill to our friends and

We arrived at Old Beacon Hill at around 10:40 pm and were greeted with a
friendly smile despite the time. The cabin is stylishly furnished with soft
bedding. Old Beacon Hill even provided tea, coffee and milk which was a welcome
surprise after the long trip. I would recommend this establishment to all my
friends and family. Well done!
