DescriptionA fusion of open landscapes, tranquility, lush green paddocks, fertile gardens, country food textures and Hilton's cultural base, makes Brookfield Farmhouse an elegantly charming hospitality landmark and retreat. Brookfield offers the warmest hospitality and gracious surrounds.
Differentiated between a country lodge and a stay-on-a-farm, the Brookfield Farmhouse hospitality approach is a single-minded focus on stylish B&B suites and personalised service in a natural environment for all seasons.
This establishment has its roots firmly settled in the fertile and bountiful Hilton valley, with views towards the Karkloof and the Drakensberg mountains. 15 Minutes drive from the city of Pietermaritzburg and just down the road from Hilton Village. Brookfield is an environment filled with peace and tranquility that has been created to ensure that guests feel pampered and relaxed.
A renowned bed and breakfast establishment, Brookfield Farmhouse is on the doorstep of the well known Hilton and St Anne’s College private schools. The Hilton College Theatre positively fizzes with artists and crafter’s energy, ideas and creativity during the festival times.
Our love of nature offers guests insight into the mysteries of indigenous flora and fauna. During your stay, see if you can spot the endangered blue crane, during breeding season, often found in the railed paddocks or the shy Oribi and many bird species, which abound on the farm surrounds.
We also serve meals by prior arrangement.
The allure of the beautiful open spaces and natural environment is the idyllic background for a getaway to Brookfield. Each individually decorated suite blends accommodation, style and space with warm personal service, comfort and privacy.

No small wonder the Midlands always appear lush green year round. At this elevation near the Drakensberg watershed, summer temperatures may range from 20°C to 30°C during the day, often with dramatic afternoon thunderstorms.
