The space
About this space?
The “Protea Loft “ is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a refreshing layover. Set on farmland adjacent to Hilton College, this little protea farm sits on top of a hill and is only 5 minutes drive from the village of Hilton and 5km from the N3. The Protea loft is uniquely designed adjacent a water tower to best capture the breath-taking views of the KZN Midlands. This nest in the clouds, with the fresh mountain air and the sounds of nature around you, is the ultimate destination to relax and de-stress. You can walk out the front door and explore multiple farm trails. You are likely to see buck, warthog, and farm life as you wander through the adjacent grasslands and plantations.
When you leave the N3 you drive toward Hilton College, you turn right onto a well maintained dirt road for 2km. On arrival you have on-site parking and retrieve your key from the lock box. You proceed up the stairs that take you to your holiday home . The entrance leads into a lounge, kitchen area fitted with a fridge, microwave, toaster, and coffee machine. From the balcony on the first floor you get a 180 degree view over farmlands and a panoramic view of the Drakensberg. The stairway from the lounge takes you up to the main bedroom. From your bed and the balcony you can soak in breath-taking views toward Greytown and the Karkloof mountain range. The luxury queen sized bed and hot shower are a perfect way to end off your day. Tea, coffee, milk and rusks are provided. In addition, you will have uncapped Wi-Fi for your devices. An extra mattress with linen can be requested at an additional cost for a third guest to camp in the lounge.

During your stay

Security and assistance?
This is an extremely safe area, but for your peace of mind, the pump house sits behind an electric fence. Another farm cottage is close enough for comfort (20m), but it is tucked behind a hedge and trellis fence for privacy. The owners live 100m away and are always available to assist you should you need anything.
