Oxnead Guesthouse History:
John Hawtayne grew up in Norfolk England where his family (then the Hauteyn family) had a farm they called Oxnead. The name originated from the fact that the house was overlooking a meadow and a river (they called a nead) and the oxen came to drink water at the `nead`. Today Oxnead is a small town in England well known for its Halfinger horse breeding.
As a young entrepreneur John had a vision of commemorating the family farm and started a Guesthouse that he named after the farm. This was one of the first guesthouses in Pretoria and were well know and very popular from the start with guests from parliament to visitors from all over the world. Sadly John Hawtayne passed away in 2003 about 6 months after selling the Guesthouse to Koos and Nelia Smit who are still the owners.
