Lindisfarne B&B  -  Graded Three Star and situated on 2 acres of park like gardens, 40 km West of Durban, has become sought after by tourists and Corporates who want good hospitality, cleanliness, comfort and peace and quiet.

The main house was designed by a Dutch architect and built in 1956 as a family home which was passed down from father to son and remained in the family until 1997 when purchased by Jane and Paul with a view to running a B&B.  Both being professional entertainers, they named the property Lindisfarne after the British Folk/Rock Group who were popular during the early 70’s.
