                    [post_content] => Hawklee Country House is ideal for anyone seeking a peaceful and tranquil breakaway. Nestled on the banks of the gently flowing Lions River, our picturesque gardens set in 5 hectares of undisturbed beauty are available exclusively to guests looking for that something special, whether it is for a romantic getaway or just to rekindle that very special moment.

With the grandeur of the majestic Drakensberg mountains dominating the horizon to the west and the green and gold of the sub-tropical Indian Ocean coast an easy 90 minutes drive along the N3, Hawklee is a haven of tranquility that offers a springboard to all that Kwa-Zulu Natal offers. There are over a hundred places of interest within easy driving distances of Hawklee along the Midlands Meander - the internationally acclaimed arts and crafts route - plus a host of natural attractions and leisure pursuits right on our doorstep.

Our Chalets are designed to give comfort and privacy. All units feature your own private spa bath and offer views over the Lions River. For those special occasions we offer our Honeymoon suite together with Hawklee's very own dash of extra luxury and pampering. Picnic baskets are offered on request and we have a lovely Honeymoon basket filled with your very own keepsake Hawklee champagne glasses, champagne, Ferro Roche chocolate, candles, flowers, petals spread in the cottages and goodies to eat for remembrance of the lovely occasion

We offer hearty country cuisine in our dinning room with a 3 course meal and a choice on the menu in the evenings. Our log fire in the lounge keeps the chill at bay, as well as a deck with spectacular views where guests can relax and enjoy balmy summer evenings. Join us in The Leopards Lair bar for pre evening drinks and enjoy the rugby, golf or soccer while relaxing. We offer full DSTV in the lounge and bar

Let your hosts Belinda and Dean welcome you to this little spot of paradise in a haven of tranquility.

Please note that the Vintage decor shop and Cafe, will only be open over weekends and some public holidays for day visitors, or by special request. (please check which public holidays)

If you choose to spend a night... or maybe a few, you will be treated to “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” - Crystal Barn style!

                    [post_content] => You will find Satori Farm in the Midlands of Natal – a beautiful place surrounded by mountains, with fresh water streams and a river running through it, an unspoiled piece of paradise.

Satori has been created by a two man (well a man and woman) team from the natural surroundings of the land – the private lodge has been built with straw bales and thatch, water is supplied from a natural underground stream and lighting is provided by solar power. The lodge has been with tasteful simplicity and open to the stunning scenic landscape.

The owners of Satori wanted to create a different concept for people to experience – a place of harmony, of balance and of connectedness with nature and for people to reconnect with themselves through the natural environment to remove themselves for a while from hectic city lifestyles, from modern day stresses and pressures.

It’s about being able to sleep in late if you want, hike up a mountain, take a leisurely stroll in the beautiful indigenous forest, sit quietly by the river and just “be”.

We encourage guests to take part in art workshops as well as drumming workshops –and no you don’t have to be an artist or a musician but just getting involved in these activities will help you to unwind and to have fun. We also invite guests to get involved with the kitchen if they so wish – to bake scrumptious breads and wholesome country meals or to sit and chat, have a glass of wine and enjoy the process of preparing food – it is in itself an art after all. So many people today do not have time or the inclination to cook good food, preferring restaurants and fast foods so to experience our country cooking is an event on its own.

Satori is a destination, an experience in itself, a different side of life which the owners wish to share. It’s about taking a moment and just being in that moment and finding a quiet contentment. So many people are caught up in the busy-ness of life and have little quality time for themselves, their friends and families. It’s about “ one day I’ll do this, one day when I have lots of money, when the kids have left home, when I retire” and so life moves on and that “one day” moves further away.
We want people to kick off their shoes, walk barefoot, play, laugh a lot and enjoy being in the moment, to find a balance in themselves, a fresh outlook on life and take with them a little piece of paradise.

                    [post_content] => This stunning country lodge and wedding venue, which has become one of the leading midlands wedding venues in KwaZulu Natal, was acquired by the Blackburns in 2007.

Debbie and Richard fell in love with Cranford the moment they set their eyes on it some years ago. As if fated they eventually purchased the place of their dreams and moved in at the beginning of April 2007. They started immediately to restore Cranford to its former glory and now, with a great deal of TLC, this magical, peaceful place in the heart of the Midlands is looking fantastic.
