ASHTONVALE GUEST FARM - for the whole Family
A quality, affordable holiday for the whole family with old-world hospitality. “Hill” family owned and run for four generations offering comfortable accommodation. The peaceful, mountainous surroundings and three delicious home-cooked meals a day will enable you to relish being away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day living. Young children can enjoy interacting with farm animals and learn to milk a cow. A pony ride is arranged daily for them. They have a small playground (with their own tractor) and a tuck-shop. Older children are safe to explore the farm on their own or with their newly made friends. A cricket match on the front lawn is a common sight on a late summer afternoon. Originally built as a Church of England Mission in 1884, Ashtonvale is situated between the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg and the KwaZulu Natal Midlands. Ashtonvale is a working farm with three magnificent waterfalls, the original small family chapel has recently been restored. Our sparkling blue swimming pool with paddling pool has the most spectacular views, an ideal spot to play with the kids or enjoy sundowners in the evening. We are not liquor licensed so please bring your own. Fridges are available on the main verandah. A tea/coffee station with microwave is available 24 hours. Most evenings, after dinner, we gather in the lounge (in winter around a roaring log fire) to play bingo, vegetable derby or similar family games or you might rather meet with friends in the 'Randy Rooster' to share a drink, play snooker or darts or just simply chat and listen to music. A heart- warming experience for all family members, young and old alike. Except for your pets that is! With accommodation for between 65 and 70 people, Ashtonvale is an ideal venue for family gatherings, church outings, sports clubs, wedding receptions, educational excursions for schools and mini conferences. Cots, highchairs and a baby-sitting service available on request. Arrive as a Guest and Leave as a Friend.
