                    [post_content] => A visit to Sue Tarrs Summerhouse at Folly Hill will transport you into another world. Situated not far from Hilton Village on a smallholding, Sue has created a tranquil, country retreat in which you can escape. The Summerhouse used to be an old milking parlour and many Winterskloof residents used to walk to Folly Hill to fetch their milk. The old milking pens and feeding troughs provide a backdrop to the carefully arranged displays.

Browse through a wonderful selection of gifts, decor items, selected kitchen and tableware as well as an array of silk flowers. Bring your container with you and have your silk flowers arranged.

We are Lou Harvey stockists, carry a selection of Nguni skins from northern Natal and a range of Thokomala hand crocheted blankets, scarves and beanies, made by a rural KwaZulu-Natal community.

The nursery specialises in old fashioned plants and perennials for the garden and has a wide selection of plants and roses suitable for a cold climate.

The old calf pens are now a cosy rustic restaurant, La Popote. Enjoy a lazy breakfast or lunch under the trees or tuck into bowls of hot soup in front of a fire on chilly days.
(Booking has become essential)
Gift vouchers are available.

                    [post_content] => Once described by Alan Paton as the most beautiful school in South Africa, Hilton College is situated on a 1600 hectare estate looking out towards the Karkloof hills. The Reverend William Orde Newnham must have been equally impressed when he arrived at the farm "Upper Hilton" owned by his friend, Gould Arthur Lucas, to open a "Collegiate Institution" on 29 January 1872. He came with his wife and three young children, Mrs Dore the nurse, some fifty boys and fifty pounds. The English public school system was followed - rugby and cricket were played, a mounted cadet unit was established and Hilton boys became notable for learning, gentlemanly behaviour and rugby football.

Under successive Headmasters, Hilton College has developed its own personality due to its unique heritage and magnificent environment. The Fleur-de-Lys and the motto "Orando et Labarando" (by work and prayer) were adopted by the second master, Henry Vaughan Ellis, an old Rugbeian, to show the affinity between Hilton College and Rugby School in England. The Hilton College of today is a far cry from that humble school of 1872. There are now 555 pupils and many special and excellent staff at the school makes it one of the leading schools in the country.

                    [post_content] => The Karkloof Conservation Centre is a unique and exciting joint venture between the Karkloof Conservancy, The Wildlands Conservation Trust, SAPPI, Birdlife SA and the Southern KZN Birding Route. This Centre is run by members of the local community, represented by the Karkloof Conservancy.

The area is rich in biodiversity and has much to offer. All three Crane species, and many other interesting birds visit the wetlands and dams near the bird hides on a regular basis. There are also a few antelope species, serval, caracal, mongooses, otters, and abundant frog and insect life.

The public can enjoy the true splendor of the Karkloof wetlands from a comfortable seat in a beautiful bird hide where one really feels part of the natural surroundings.

This project is an exemplary example of how high tech agriculture, conservation and tourism can coexist harmoniously without disturbing ecology.

The office is open weekdays from 8:00 to 16:00. An honesty box is in place for weekends, the early bird twitchers and wise old owls who enjoy sundowners.

There is an entrance fee of R25 per adult, R15 per child (children under five years get in for free). Every Friday pensioners only pay R15.

Please make a booking for larger group visits, functions and if you would like to make use of our braai facilities.
