Penny Farthing Country Lodge is Tourism Dundee Recommended. Semi Finalist in 2001 to 2006 in the AA Travel Awards, Penny Farthing Country House is a charming country house with luxurious en-suite bedrooms and is well known for its warm hospitality and excellent meals.

Penny Farthing Country House is situated on a 3 000 hectare cattle and game farm in the heart of the KwaZulu Natal battlefields and is in close proximity to Rorke's Drift, Isandlwana and Blood River. The house is built on the original foundations of the colonial home founded by the Vermaak family in 1847 after taking part in various campaigns. It is set in a large garden with a fish pond and swimming pool and is graced with an abundant bird life.

Foy's late wife, Marinella was a descendant of Dougald McPhail, a founder of the town of Dundee, and one of the few survivors of the battle of Isandlawana. Foy is a registered Satour tour guide, with a passion for history, and conducts regular tours of the battlefields.

A flight of semi-circular stairs leads one into an impressive 10 X 4 m dining room, furnished with a 16 seater walnut table and carved oak chairs. A Victorian sideboard and server complement this enormous room. A wide passage leads off the dining room and homes a Victorian bookcase filled with a collection of Africana books for guest to enjoy.

It is an outstanding place in the middle of nowhere. Glad we have been here and that we have got so much good info about the battlefield. Something we knew that south africa have gone through but never aware of the deeper history. Foy is an excellent story teller and good documentalist.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5
