About Mount Park Guest Farm

Mount Park Guest Farm is situated in the beautiful upper Dargle region of KwaZulu Natal Midlands at the foot of the Inhlosane Mountain. This 344 hectare working beef farm consists of a diverse combination of grasslands, pastures, over 40 hectares of indigenous forest, wetlands and mountain, providing habitats for a large variety of bird species. One of the forests inhabitants is the rare Tree Hyrax. You may be lucky to hear its distinctive call at night.

We offer self-catering accommodation in a century old farmhouse, Yellowwood Cottage, Rose Cottage, in two Cabins and have camping sites. Simple catering is offered in the Bull & Speir restaurant on request. This is all situated in a large old garden, intersected with small streams and a large old oak tree, ideal for relaxing on a sunny day.

In the garden is a small dam stocked with trout, which is ideal for kids to fish and swim in. Adults are also welcome to throw a line. For the more active there are a number of walks through the forests, up the mountain, down to the vlei or a short stroll to the historic graveyard, in a grove of yellowwood trees. Perhaps an apt way to describe Mount Park is an ‘Olde Worlde’ delight.

We stayed in one of the wooden cabins, which was perfectly equipped for a weekend away. The stoep overlooks a beautiful stream and the forest beyond it. The owners are wonderfully friendly and helpful and we had delicious food for supper from the restaurant. Will definitely be back.

The Rose cottage was very cosy and comfortable. The hosts and staff were great. A pity we could not have stayed longer but will return again.

Mount Park Guest Farm is like experiencing heaven on earth. The accommodation is comfortable, the scenery is so beautiful and the owners are so welcoming. One could not ask for more! Thank you so much.

Mount Park is a peaceful, family friendly getaway in the beautiful Dargle valley. Our cabin was cosy with trickling streams and pretty flowers on all sides, a perfect place to lie with a good book listening to the rain pattering in the evening. Our children had great fun on the kayaks and canoes on the dam, fishing and climbing the enormous old oak tree. We all enjoyed the numerous hikes ranging from easy to quite challenging all the way to the summit! My eleven year old even commented 'this is even better than Ushaka!' High praise indeed! With our friendly, helpful hosts adding to the...
