The peace and tranquillity of Old Halliwell will take you far from the cacophony of city life. Four hours from Johannesburg, or one hour from Durban, the Inn is set in the scenic midlands outside the historic hamlet of Curry`s Post.

The stone house, dating back to the 1830`s, was originally on the wagon route to the "interior" and today, the Inn has captured the traditions and charm of a more gracious age.

The friendly atmosphere of Steven`s Bar and the dining room filled with freshly cut flowers and wonderful aromas, promise a warm welcome and memorable experiences. Steven`s pub has a Television with all the Sports Channels and Sky News.

Tastefully decorated bedrooms are large and comfortable. Enjoy the warmth of a glowing fireplace and the privacy of your own verandah overlooking the Karkloof Valley. Valley suites are spacious and luxurious.

The conference room, a beautifully refurbished old barn with 50cm thick walls surrounded by garden and views of the Karkloof Valley


So much to do There is far more to the Midlands Meander than shopping, eating and roaming about on country roads. Get up at dawn and watch the cows being milked, or take a walk alongside the dams, where mist steams gently from the cool waters and trout kiss the surface with taunting lips.

Back-pack up into the mountains, with a guide who will entrance you with tales of Bushman raids and great battles between Boers, British and Zulu warriors. Watch your children become children again with the freedom to explore and play. Cycle along country lanes, stopping for breath when you tire, and fill your lungs with the sweet smell of freshly cut grass.

Paddle a small boat into the middle of a dam, and watch the sun set behind the purple mountains. Play dead and watch the birds and small animals come closer. Visit the environmental centres and nature reserves, and delight in the shy beauty of endangered creatures such as the wattled crane and oribi antelope.
