About Windmill Farm

Situated just inside the border of Kwazulu Natal, Windmill Farm is conveniently located halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, in an area landscaped by the beauty of the vast Drakensberg mountain range.

Windmill Farm is the perfect location for nature lovers and guests wishing to explore all that this beautiful area has to offer. Stay in one of our charming, self-catering cottages, perched along the edge of the plateau. Then relax, breathe in the fresh air, take in the uninterrupted view and let your discovery of the Northern Drakensberg begin.

Sounds of bird life and late night calls of the Jackal and buck will find you in Natures palm. Herds of Eland have claimed the farm as their favorite spot in the winter months with welcoming visits to the cottages doorsteps. There is a troop of 28 baboons who roam close by but not too close for comfort.

This is a true breakaway leaving you with a complete sound of silence. Family owned by The Van Rensburg family who have been in the area for over 35 years. Craig Van Rensburg purchased the farm in July 2012, the farm needed some tender love and care. In the past four years major renovations and rebuilding has been completed to upgrade the farm to a higher standard.

Three cottages have been completed the Hotel is up and running and the restaurant is open business as well. Further renovations and constant upgrades are in place.

The tranquil blue of the Sterkfontein Dam; a fishing and water-sports paradise; lies behind us. Ahead of us we enjoy an expansive view of the Northern Drakensberg above the clouds.

We look forward to welcoming you to a little piece of paradise.

Wedding Venues: We can offer marquees and catering.

Family friendly: Perfect for quiet family getaway.

Romantic: Peace and quiet, night time welcomes the sounds of nature, the call of a jackal, night birds, buck and close visit with eland passing by your cottage during the cold winter months.

                                          Double bed and not 2 singles would have been better. The restaurant open on the premisis

                                          We loved our stay, very friendly staff and a beautiful chalet. The sound of the traffic was a little distracting at first (establishment is right next to the road), but not too much. The fact that we were not affected by any power outages was a definite advantage! The chalets are very well equipped and the daily room service was an extra bonus to really help us relax! The only suggestion we have is for braai amenities that can be used during rain/windy days. We will definitely visit again! This place is lovely! We had a 9 day stay here and it felt like home away from home!
