Welcome To
Kilmorna Manor

Kilmorna Manor Logo

For a never to be forgotten experience.

Kilmorna Manor is a unique, one of a kind home, that was designed and built by an eccentric Irishman who decided that he wanted to have the best of both worlds: his deep love of the Lowveld Bush coupled with the gracious lifestyle of an English country squire. The result is one of the most unique homes to be found in Mpumulanga. A Tudor mansion of magnificent proportions set on a 208-hectare, malaria-free, nature reserve high up against the escarpment of Schoemanskloof - 45 minutes before Mbombela and three hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Kilmorna Manor was purchased and lovingly converted into a guest house for the discerning traveler by Philip and Laura-ann. It has always been a dream of both Philip and Laura-ann to own and run a unique guest house that reflects their lifestyle and love of life. It took them nearly three years to create the perfect environment for the guest who requires luxurious and pampered accommodation in an unspoiled and natural environment.

Six Luxurious
Rooms Await You

All six exquisitely decorated en-suite bedrooms are a haven of luxury, serenity and peace. Each room includes full en-suite bathrooms featuring both bath and shower with the exception of Room 1 which offers a therapeutic massage shower. All bathrooms offer heated towel rails. King size four-poster beds (apart from Room 6 which has a queen sized bed) and pure cotton sheets with comforters make all our rooms the epitome of luxury and refinement. All rooms offer DSTV, coffee/tea making facilities, in-room gas fireplaces and electric blankets ensuring that crisp winter nights are perfectly taken care of. Five of our six gracious en-suite bedrooms lead onto the lush sup-tropical garden. Room 6 being a cosy loft room on the first floor.


Other Perks

You might not think that our 3.5 km dirt road is a perk – but it is. Winding up the mountain you reach a haven of security and tranquillity – where modern comforts that we have all become used to are found – including free WiFi, electric blankets and roaring fires for the winter. A rim flow pool in the middle of the bush for the summer months and a generator that runs the house for when the grid is overloaded.

If you are like most “Covid-19" travellers, you are exploring more destinations closer to home. We’re seeing a preference for driving by car and escaping to the outdoors, as well as a growing interest in secluded destinations that can provide fresh air and relaxation away from the crowds.
