Situated on one of the oldest farms in the Natal Midlands. The Spa, Boutique Hotel and Restaurant have been established by the Bates Family out of the Old Dairy and Farmyard Buildings. Some of the Buildings are in stone dating back to the late 1860’s in which the Byrne Settler William Taylor lived and Farmed. As most of the original settlers came from Perthshire, the names of many farms in the area are Scottish.
