About Hawkshead Guest Farm

Hawkshead Guest Farm offers thatched rondavels at budget prices. Situated just off the N4 Highway and 15 km west of Nelspruit, this is a convenient and tranquil base from which to explore the many attractions of the Lowveld.

A dip in the swimming pool provides a refreshing end to a hard day's sightseeing, followed by a braai next to your rondavel. Breakfast is available at the main house and dinners can be arranged. We also provide facilities for self-catering if required.

The scenic beauty of the Panorama Route and the excitement of the Kruger National Park are all within an hour's drive. There are also many attractions closer to home, including the Sudwala Caves and some outstanding golf courses. Amenities at Hawkshead include a petting farm with various small animals for the children to enjoy. Because of its setting amongst rocky outcrops and indigenous vegetation, there is an abundance of bird life.

Hawkshead Guest Farm offers special rates for groups and long-term guests. We will happily accommodate trailers, boats and motorbikes as space is not a problem. We look forward to welcoming you.

          The rooms were cosy and our host Val Graham made everything possible to make our stay comfortable. I wish though next time we could have at least a bar fridge in the rooms. The establishment is 5 minutes away from Nelspruit town and less than 20 minutes to Sudwala caves and Dinosaur park.

          Place was not cleaned before we arrived. Spider nest inside one bed. Bloodspatter on sheets...
