Hartford House

The Home of Good Conversation, Fine Wine and Classic Horses.

Award-winning hotel and restaurant situated at Summerhill Stud on the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Meander, South Africa.

Suite 13 - Mbulelo (Thanksgiving)

Mbulelo is the Xhosa word for “thanksgiving”. One of four eco-friendly suites only a cricket pitch length from an enchanting lake, Mbulelo is constructed of materials harvested from the estate and the immediate vicinity, and reminds us of the creative genius of our local craftsmen. Tucked away with its resident pair of endangered Oribi, the private world of its pool deck glimpses the swirls of rising “rainbows” and catches the triumphant shriek of a foraging Kingfisher.

Favourite residence of former Proteas cricket captain, Shaun Pollock and his wife, Trisha.
