Moorcroft Manor, a converted farmhouse with 12 beautifully appointed rooms is, without question, the Southern Drakensberg’s best luxury Boutique Country Hotel. Nestled in Himeville, at the foot of South Africa’s highest mountain range, the hotel is almost magical, seeming to draw its power from it’s magnificent location. Set in an exquisite garden, with crisp mountain air and a proverbial open farm gate to Kwa-Zulu Natal’s natural heritage areas, it offers a re-charging experience for weary travellers and stressed-out city dwellers alike.
Decorated with original artworks from around Africa, and retaining some of the original farmhouse’s features like the large fireplace in the lounge bar, Moorcroft Manor is an understated balance of old-world country charm and modern creature comforts, a quintessential haven of tranquility that’s good for the soul.
Feeding the soul in more ways than one, every dining experience – be it a day visit to enjoy a midweek lunch or weekend brunch on the terrace, surrounded by the majestic uKhahalamba Mountains (the Zulu word meaning Barrier of Spears), or a dinner in the hotel’s fantastic restaurant – is as memorable as you’d expect.
The Southern Drakensberg is the staging ground for several internationally-recognized sporting events, so if you enjoy exploring our mountain ranges on foot, on horseback, or by bike, Moorcroft Manor is your proverbial open farm gate to adventure.
