This Elegant Homestead situated on 2 acres of park like gardens approximately 35 km from Durban, has become sought after by tourists and Corporates who want good hospitality, cleanliness, comfort and peace & quiet.

The main house was designed by a Dutch architect and built in 1956 as a family home which was passed down from father to son and remained in the family until 1997 when purchased by Jane & Paul with a view to running a B&B.

Both being professional entertainers, they named the property "Lindisfarne" after the British Folk/Rock Group who were popular during the early 70's.

We are located in Botha's Hill in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa and form a part of the Thousand Hills Experience Route T1 better known as "The Comrades Route". Botha's Hill is known to have the third healthiest climate in the world. We are considerably cooler than Durban and it is advised some warm clothing always be brought, even in summer.
