Cotswold Downs is an upmarket, low density residential Golf and Lifestyle Estate that has been developed on 222 hectares of gently undulating hills and countryside. 

The KZN Upper Highway is home some of the best state & independent schools in the country, many of which are on the doorstep of Cotswold Downs. Traditional private schools such as Highbury Prep, Kearsney College, St Mary’s DSG and Thomas More all have stellar reputations; whilst Hillcrest Primary boasts some of the finest facilities of any government school in the province.  

Perhaps the most exciting addition is the Curro HCA High School (adjacent to the Main Gate). Brimming with outstanding, modern facilities; it affords children the option of walking to and from school in complete safety. 

One of Hillcrest’s most attractive features is its cool and temperate climate. Whilst Durban is often humid and Pietermaritzburg can be extremely dry, Cotswold Downs enjoys idyllic weather that one can expect from this serene countryside. Conveniently located between these two cities, it is also a mere 45 minutes away from the King Shaka International Airport. The Hillcrest Private Hospital is within eight kilometres of our front gate, whilst the 40 000m² Watercrest Mall is less than three kilometres from the main entrance.
