About Hilton House

Hilton House is set in the park-like gardens of the main house. It has its own private patio & braai area looking out over the “ oxbow lake “ and surrounding hills. Here one can enjoy the beautiful sunsets & many wild sounds while having high tea or sundowners, before lighting the fire or weber.

The main house is home to Janet & John White and their family who are your hosts. It is a National Monument built in 1834 in the typical symmetry of the Georgian style with large sash windows & shutters, yellowwood, sprung floors for ballroom dancing & a cellar, originally built for slaves. This has been converted into a unique pub & venue, which just oozes history.

There is a swimming pool for the use of guests. The farm also offers walks, mountain bike trails & good bird-watching. A game drive may be organized by arrangement.
