“There was a keen appreciation of the finer things of life … it seemed to me a kind of paradise that I had wandered down – an enchanted oasis, nature’s peace.” (Written by one of our valued guests.)
Meander down winding English country lanes overhung with mature trees - a glimpse here and there of majestic views across the Winterskloof Valley – to reach Hilton Country House home of Theresa and Harold Rees. If you are looking for quiet, peaceful accommodation in beautiful surrounds, then you need search no more.
