Welcome to Ardmore Guest Farm

Ardmore Guest Farm is situated in Champagne Valley in the picturesque Drakensberg mountains in KwaZulu-Natal. The farm lies in the valley below the three highest peaks in South Africa, namely Mafadi (3450m), Injisuthi Dome (3410m) and Champagne Castle (3377m), which dominate the skyline.

Ardmore provides cosy farm-style, bed-and-breakfast accommodation on a beautiful, organic timber farm. We have a total of 16 units to choose from, with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms in either one of our recently-renovated garden-facing studios or one of the several mountain-facing cottages.

All our units have en-suite bathrooms with jacuzzi spa baths and wood fireplaces. There is also a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities in every room. Free wifi is available in the main lodge complex and the guest rooms.

We look forward to welcoming you to our enchanting retreat in the Drakensberg mountains.
