Experience the charm and ambience of King's Grant, the historic mission station built by German Trappist Monks in 1900 and now tastefully restored and refurbished as an enchanting guest lodge.
Nestled in the heart of the St Isidor valley close to Ixopo and surrounded by lush farmlands and bird-inhabited waters, King's Grant extends a warm welcome to guests and offers them the opportunity to relax and unwind in the unique atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. The living quarters of the Dutch monks and German nuns have been converted into ten B&B and three self-catering guestrooms with en-suite bathrooms, tea trays with homemade biscuits, DSTV, fans, heaters, electric blankets and garden-facing patios.
Take a step back in time and explore it's history, including the St Isidor Maize-Mill which houses a conference centre, museum and the original blacksmith’s workshop. Relax in the rose-filled gardens which surround the ancient red brick buildings or wander through indigenous gardens beside the stream.
With the quaint St Isidor Chapel and Tuscan-style Banqueting hall, Kings Grant is the ideal venue for a romantic and intimate wedding. The licenced country-style restaurant offers breakfast, teas, lunches and dinners.
On-site activities include bird-watching, walks and canoeing. Local activities to enjoy are the Paton’s Country Express, a narrow-gauge steam train, mountain biking and bird-watching for species such as the rare Cape Parrots and Blue Swallows.
