Map Reference 245
Nestled in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, Beacon Vlei Guest Farm offers luxurious B&B and S/C accommodation with a touch of history. Our private 50-acre dam and the surrounding wetland area is home to hundreds of beautiful bird species as well as large trout and bass.
Two charming dwellings exist on the farm. The Boat–House (Self Catering) and The Manor House (Bed & Breakfast) are both elegantly, appropriately and comfortably furnished.
The Boat House, which is situated 20m from the dams’ edge, is a charming thatched home, consisting of 1 en-suite bedroom, a very large living room with a bunk alcove and sleeper couch which sleeps an additional 3 people. There is a second bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.
The Manor House is a large elegant and comfortable home which has 3 en-suite double bedrooms and bathrooms which are used as B&B rooms. All the rooms command sweeping views of the dam and surrounding countryside. Breakfast is served in an elegant dining room which in winter is warmed by a roaring fire.
Beacon Vlei Guest Farm is a family friendly establishment centrally located on the famed Midlands Meander (1km from Michaelhouse School). The Midlands Meander offers visitors a myriad of art and craft shops. There are also many fine restaurants, delicatessens and cheese farms in the Balgowan district and within 3 to 5km of Beacon Vlei.
Guests need not leave the farm to enjoy fly fishing, birding, boating or a picnic after a leisurely walk around beautiful Beacon Vlei. Other outdoor activities that can be arranged in the surrounding countryside include hot air ballooning, mountain biking, horse riding, canopying, battlefield tours and even paragliding.
