Lastingham is in the heart of the KZN Midlands, in the Caversham valley conveniently positioned 1 km off the R103.
All our accommodation is in freestanding garden cottages, which offer a sense of space and tranquility. Wallow in one of our Jacuzzi baths, drink wine in front of a roaring fire, lie on your king size bed and gaze at the undulating hills, sit on your verandah and spot the abundant bird life and small animals, depart feeling pampered, serene and restored.
Lastingham is not only a getaway destination; we offer a variety of specialised and intimate functions, conferences, weddings, wellness and holistic retreats – a hugely growing industry. I oversee, co-ordinate, tailor design and give individual attention to every function. The peronalised themes, programs, menus and creative decor, are the things that interest and excite me.
The Midlands is one of the most fertile areas in SA, with abundant rain, early morning mists, cool air, and numerous springs and rivers. This allows us to source grass fed beef, daily picked vegetables, wonderful dairy products, free range chickens, mountain stream trout. All of which play a major part in our meals that we create for our guest enjoyment. We have travelled the world, and picked up dishes which we have made our own, all prepared with love and care. We are passionate about food, so it has become a huge drawcard for people to return to try out our latest recipes, or request a firm favourite.
Because of our location, we are in close proximity to golf courses, off road cycle tracks, art, craft, retail therapy, schools, open gardens and some of the Midlands top dinning rooms and coffee shops.
We are all caught up in the business of life, so whether you come to Lastingham for leisure, a conference, a wedding, to visit a child at boarding school, or a retreat; our gift to you is a quiet place where you can take time out, and be content with just being.
