A TASTE OF HISTORY

ABOUT THE KNOLL HISTORIC GUEST FARM

Situated on the historic farm of "The Knoll" in Hilton, Natal Midlands, the Knoll has a rich history of hospitality. It has catered for early transport riders, passing troops and even Jan Smuts. Since 1850 the knoll has variously been a farm, hunting lodge, hotel, school, country estate and family home.The views from the Guesthouse are stunning, looking over rolling farmlands and forests.

In January 1850 John Philip Zietsman was granted a large area of land in what was known as Groene Kloof. He was the first Landrost of Pietermaritzburg and stayed behind when the Voor-Trekkers returned to the Orange Free State and Transvaal.
