Description

We are an established 4* bed and breakfast located outside Mooi river on the Hlatikulu road towards Giants Castle catering for guests who are in search of comfortable Country Style hospitality and living.

Our humble, but luxury home consists of 5 private cottages. All cottages are of a high standard, with en-suite bathrooms, fire places and private veranda's.

The five farm cottages "Mooi", "Umgeni", "Bushman", "Inzinga", and "Berg" face an uninterrupted, spectacular view of Giants Castle and the central Drakensberg.

Old Rearsby has the best vantage point from which to see the Berg`s glorious dawn and sunset colours. In winter, dining room log fires add charm to the 100-year-old farmhouse, while in summer, lazy breakfasts can be enjoyed under the plane tree or on the stoep.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, fishing, golf and riding can easily be arranged. Weenen and Kamberg Game Reserves, the Sani Pass and Giants Castle make wonderful day trips from Old Rearsby.
