                    [post_content] => Situated in the indigenous forest of the Karkloof Nature Reserve, we offer luxury self-catering accommodation in a unique environment. Currently, there are two 6-sleeper luxury lodges within the Reserve, Rockwood Forest Lodge and Rockwood Mountain Lodge. Each unit comprises 3 bedrooms (1 king and 2 twin rooms), has 2-3 bathrooms, a fully equipped self-catering kitchen and dining/lounge area with a large viewing deck. Adjacent to the reserve, on a typical Midlands farm, are Rockwood Farm Cottage and Rockwood Farm House. Both these units allow our guests to have an authentic farm experience and get away from it all, whilst still being within an easy drive from the town of Howick.

                    [post_content] => Inversanda is a country lover's haven situated in the beautiful Dargle Valley. We are in the privileged position of being situated right at the end of the road; a place to relax and soak up the peace and tranquility. Children, horses and well-behaved pets are most welcome.

At Inversanda we are passionate about 3 things: our farm, our animals and the magical valley in which we are so privileged to live. The farm dates back to the 1800s and up until the late 1970s the crops were all planted and harvested with working oxen. Today our 20 horses and 100 Hereford cows and calves happily graze on the lush kikuyu pastures.

We are a destination for those who want to get completely away. Animal lovers are particulary welcome. Harold, the jack russell; Winston the great dane; Matilda the hand reared cow - not to mention the horses - are all keen to introduce themselves. Infact maybe too keen! Visitors are warned to keep their doors closed otherwise not only will Harold move in, but Matilda too!

Visitors can simply relax and enjoy a good book by the fire or on the verandah, or alternatively take some invigorating exercise. There are wonderful walks, mountain bike trails, swimming, fishing and tubing in 2.5kms of Umgeni River (in season) and fantastic horse trails for experienced riders. There is also a swimming pool and trampoline.

Barn Cottage (6)
Our new barn cottage is proving very popular. It has a double bedroom with king size extra-long bed with ensuite full bathroom; a 2nd bedroom with twin beds and a bunk bed with ensuite shower/WC; a large sitting room/dining room/kitchen with fireplace and large verandah with magnificent view.

Farmhouse Private Wing (4)
The farmhouse was built to a scale more commonly found on the sugar cane estates of the North Coast. The private wing sleeps 4 and has its own entrance and comprises a large sitting room with fireplace, dining room, kitchenette, large double bedroom with king-size extra-long bed, twin bedroom, large shared bathroom and verandah with magnificent view. It also has its own fenced garden.

                    [post_content] => Situated on top of the hill in the Dargle valley, between green paddocks and an enormous indigenous forest, Old Kilgobbin is the perfect haven for those wanting to escape from the hectic pace and pressures of city life. The main cottage, Gobbins' Cottage, is a spacious double storey two bedroom home with a large open plan kitchen and a cosy lounge with underfloor heating for those chilly Dargle winters. The kitchen is well equipped with large fridge, oven and hob, microwave and there is a cupboard filled with spices, olive oil, teas, coffees and cookies. The veggie garden is right outside the back door, and you can collect eggs if your egg- finding skills are good (if not, bring your own!!). Climb the wooden stairs, past the Victorian style bathroom (shower and slipper bath), to the large bedroom that has 2 queen extra length beds, complete with down duvets and electric blankets, loads of antiques and a great sense of tranquility. The Cubbyhole, the little second bedroom, has a luxury bunkbed smothered in patchwork quilts and down duvets. The cool back veranda, nestled beside the veggie garden and old plum trees, offers a perfect spot to store your muddy gumboots . The front veranda is perfect for late breakfasts, lazy lunches, late afternoon G&Ts, and has a forest view to lift your eyes beyond all life's deadlines.

A second cottage, the Chicken Coop, is a quaint Victorian style building with stained glass windows and has 2 single beds, a bathroom with shower, a cooking nook (complete with fridge, convection microwave and gas hob), and a closed- in wood and iron veranda that is the cosy lounge and breakfast area. The beds are high and comfortable, layered with down duvets and rose quilts, and as you lounge in the sun streaming through the veranda windows, you can watch the chickens wandering across the lawn towards the veggie garden.

Take a walk on this 450 hectare farm and you may see reedbuck grazing on the ryegrass fields ,the endangered oribi antelope blending into the hayfields , samango monkeys nibbling on nutgrass at the forest edge, and the shy duiker peeping out of his rocky home near the skinny dip dam. If you arrive home in the moonlight, the pesky porcupine may shake his quills at you and have you running for the cottage door! And of course you will see paddocks full of beautiful black horses because this is the home of Kilgobbin Friesian stud and HorsePlay.

Discount available if both cottages are booked by one party.
