About Lastingham Guest House
In the foothills of the mighty Drakensberg mountains, amid rolling hills and beautiful gardens, Lastingham offers luxury accommodation at most reasonable prices in a tranquil country setting
Our country lodge and farm was named 'Lastingham' after a vicarage in North Yorkshire, by the Lidgett family, who immigrated to South Africa in 1849. The small village nearby is named Lidgetton.
Set in 40 acres of pastureland, the original family homestead built in 1912 has been restored to its full Victorian/Edwardian splendour by your hosts, Mike Macnab and Lynne Holding.
Lastingham Guest House and bed and breakfast gives you the opportunity to enjoy accommodation at one of the Natal Midlands' grand old rural homesteads. In the foothills of the mighty Drakensberg mountains, amid rolling hills and beautiful gardens Lastingham Guest House offers luxury accommodation at most reasonable prices in a tranquil country setting.
Scattered around the house in the lush gardens overlooking a dam, are individually appointed luxurious en-suite rooms, designed by Lynne drawing on her 14 years experience as an interior designer.
