Welcome To Don Don River Mill Lodge
"Just outside Hobhouse, right on the Caledon river this family farm is probably one of the most picturesque wedding venues I’ve been privileged enough to take photos at. It’s difficult to capture the essence of this place in a couple of photos, you have to be there to experience the texture and smell of the woodlands and the old mill." FvN
Don Don River Mill Lodge, built from Sandstone, is situated on the banks of the Caledon River overlooking the Lesotho mountains.
The riverbanks, veld and Poplar grove are home to many bird species. Offering our visitors fishing along the river, which is home to many fish types such as Barbel, Carp and Yellow fish among others.
We offer accommodation which overlooks a dense poplar grove and the Lesotho mountains, with the Caledon River flowing only meters away.
The old mill was built in c1865, and still houses the original maize and wheat Swedish-milling equipment still in working condition.
A tour of the old mill, fort, and stables is a great way to enjoy the full splendor of Don Don at your own pace.
"Everyone loves a picnic, and when you can combine one with discovering a new and interesting dorpie, it's even better." - Country Life, Oct 2003
