Situated in Southern Free State, Hillside is ideally located for weary travellers to break their journey between the northern provinces, or KZN and the Cape; or simply as an opportunity to experience Free State farm life.
Accommodation is available in three different sized lodgings: Len’s Cottage, Garden View and The Tree House. Located behind a koppie and set in an established garden, our guests can fully appreciate the beauty of the renowned Free State countryside, sunset and expansive sky.
With its original wooden floors and thick stone walls one has a distinct feeling of stepping back in time as one enters this unit. Tastefully decorated, the story of Len’s Cottage unfolds visually through the photographs displayed on the cottage walls. Len’s Cottage overlooks the rose garden and is tucked into a shaded corner of the garden. It is ideal for honeymooners or couples. Sleeps a maximum of 4 people:
The Tree House
The Tree House occupies the upper two storeys of the eastern end of the main farmhouse.
Parquet flooring, slate tiles and classic furnishings envelop guests in comfort and timeless quality. Folding, stacking doors open onto an unrestricted view over the beautiful garden and star lit night sky.
The Tree House sleeps a maximum of 6 people
Built as Len & Denise’s ‘haven’ in the 1960’s, Garden View occupies the upstairs portion of the main house.
With expansive north facing windows, wooden finishings and generous space, Garden View is idyllic in both winter and summer. The cosy lounge beckons you to enjoy a glass of sherry in front of the fireplace whilst the enormous main bedroom allows you to marvel at the night sky or summer thunderstorm from the comfort of the bed. The ‘sleeping porch’ is a hideaway bedroom that fronts onto the balcony and is cocooned with mosquito-proof netting.
For families, (max 4 adults) sharing one bathroom!
