Hartford House

Home to the family of the last prime minister of the Colony of Natal, Hartford House is situated on South Africa’s most famous thoroughbred farm near Giant’s Castle. Chosen by the Rulers of Dubai as the location for their priceless stallions, the “gem of the Midlands” is remembered by chroniclers as one of the country’s most beautiful homes, with its award-winning gardens and acclaimed fine dining.

Renowned for its location on one of the world’s most enchanting estates, as well as its proximity to the Midlands Meander, Weenen and Drakensberg game and mountain reserves and Boschhoek Golf Estate, Hartford is revered by travellers as the home of good conversation, old whiskey and classic horses.

Hartford House holds the distinction of being a Gold Achiever at Indaba, the international travel show, alongside The Mount Nelson, The Marine, Cellars – Hohenhort, The Cape Grace, Mala Mala and Singita, among others.

The sheer majesty of Zululand will take your breath away. Under the piercing African sun, the blue Indian Ocean gives way to rolling green hills and indigenous forests which shimmer in the distance before they reach the Drakensberg Mountains.


Renowned for its fourteen incomparably-styled luxury suites with underfloor heating, heated towel rails and generous bathrooms. All suites are uniquely decorated with a fusion of colour, style and texture and are equipped with a telephone, TV (with M-Net and satellite channels) and a mini bar.

Perfectly positioned on a picturesque trout lake. Uninterrupted views of the lake and a section of the farm. Each uniquely built and decorated with their own character and charm. This is the ultimate in luxury and relaxation.
