This prime property is situated at the foothills of the Magaliesberg mountains between the Donkerhoek road to the north which runs parallel to the N4 highway and the Kgaswane Nature Reserve boundary to the southwest.
Rainhill's northern boundary is defined by 900m of stream bed in which there is an occasional flow. The south western boundary consists of 800m of game fencing with the Kgaswane Nature Reserve.
Rainhill has a well-documented history dating back to 1909 when the McGregor family bought sections of Donkerhoek to form Rainhill Farm. It was a citrus farm that turned to marmalade production during the Great Depression of the 1930's. In 1978 Rainhill was purchased by the Hartley family who farmed avocados and vegetables before shifting focus to the hospitality industry. Primarily though, Rainhill has always been a homestead and sanctuary for the Hartleys.
