Tell us about your venue and what you offer
Situated on a farm, surrounded by forests in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, Old Halliwell captures the charms and traditions of a more gracious age. We provide luxury accommodation with scenic views from your private verandah.
Old Halliwell is an historical landmark dating back to 1830s when the first structure was built as a fortified wagon stop leading into the wild interior and our Chapel was a Smithy where carriages were repaired and horses shod.
Today Old Halliwell is a 4 -Star County Inn and working farm set on an elevated site of 250 acres with rolling lawns and forest overlooking the magnificent Karkloof Valley and incorporates the ‘Old Halliwell Rest Home for Horses’. The peace and tranquility of Old Halliwell, where the air is clean and the water is pure, will take you far away from the hustle and bustle of city life and help you experience the charms of a bygone era, but with all the modern conveniences.
Remember that we are a well established 4-Star Country Inn and farm so we have all the usual facilities such as accommodation, restaurant, bar, smoking lounge, swimming pool, and more, and can cater for all your before and after wedding requirements.
