Nestled in the historical Byrne Valley lies an oasis of peace and tranquility. The Oaks Hotel has been welcoming guests for many generations and is justifiably acknowledged for the quality of its food and the ambiance of its facilities.

The original 1850 Settlers used the village as a place to gather and attend Church services. Today the village has a jam-making factory, a Teddy-Bear outlet and a Tea garden/Farm stall run by one of the descendants of the original settlers. The near-by town of Richmond has a challenging 9 hole (18 tee) golf course, an interesting Museum and further a field in Baynesfield is the Baynesfield Estate Museum.

This child-friendly destination is an easy 75 minute drive from Durban (50 min. from PMB) and boasts an 18 hole putt-putt course, 2 tennis courts, lawn bowls, swimming pool and a golf driving range. There is a children's play area with 2 trampolines. We also lay on tractor and donkey rides for the children. The indoor facilities include a kiddies play-room, a full size snooker table, pool table and a cosy pub complete with a roaring log fire for those chilly evenings. The hotel is fully licensed and has an adequate tuck-shop for those forgotten toiletries as well as sweets/jams/mementos etc
