About King's Grant Country Retreat

Nestled in a valley near Ixopo in KwaZulu-Natal, King’s Grant was established in 1891 as a supply farm for the nearby seminary by German Trappist Monks. In 1996 it was sold to the Biggs Family who have tastefully converted it into a 3 Star guest lodge whilst retaining its original charm and atmosphere of peace and tranquility. It now offers warm country hospitality and allows one to take a step back into the past and enjoy a slower pace of life.

The original living quarters of the German and Dutch brothers and sisters have been stylishly restored and converted into comfortable B&B and self-catering rooms.

King’s Grant facilities include the St. Isidor Conference Centre and Lounge, the St. Isidor Mill Museum, a spacious Tuscan-style banqueting hall and the quaint St. Isidor Chapel which is perfect for intimate weddings or the renewal of wedding vows. King’s Grant also houses a cosy, country-style restaurant where one can enjoy fine wine and dining either indoors or in the flower-filled courtyard gardens surrounding the central fountain.

Activities to be enjoyed are walking, birding, fishing and canoeing. A mountain bike trail of approximately 15 km winds through the valleys and thornveld and offers one the opportunity to enjoy the full beauty of the farm - preferably in groups only. Guests can also order a picnic basket and relax in the gardens.

Wedding Venues: The quaint St. Isidor Chapel is perfect for intimate weddings or the renewal of wedding vows.

                                                  My husband and I had an amazing stay in the Lavender room. Beautiful surroundings, excellent service and amazing food. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we wanted for nothing and no request was too much trouble. We will definitely be visiting again and soon. Thank you.

                                                  A very relaxing and quiet atmosphere. Very attentive staff. And the food: awesome and always delicious.

                                                  King's Grant Country Retreat. Beautiful experience. Three story'd 1890's maize grinding mill, secret cobble stone fountained courtyards, old red brick buildings, take you back in time.Well presented, appropriately furnished thatched chalets, warm to the heaters in the fresh country air, excellent cuisine, made for a delightful stay.
