Absolutely perfect for Quarantine or Isolation stays. The Farmhouse is privately positioned inside a Security Estate offering a low key, rustic yet charming mood that quietly reconnects you to nature and gently restores your capacity to appreciate the simple things in life such as the sound of rain on a tin roof and singing birds. expect to encounter brown duiker, rabbits and bats, if you are lucky. Guests love the peaceful mood under the canopy of trees, the big fireplace and the comfy beds.

The space
This listing is hidden amongst tall trees inside a Security Estate on the sunny side of the Umgeni River, very close to Howick. The Farmhouse has been converted from a very basic functional farm building into accomodation designed to appeal to those who appreciate and embrace nature . Horses graze peacefully in the fields next door. There is a chicken farm in fairly close proximity. The Farmhouse is also right next to a beautiful field filled with rare species of plants found in the indigenous grasslands of SA, where you can enjoy watching the sunset. And when you feel like exploring the Midlands, its all within easy reach.

Guest access
The entire fenced property is for your private use. Your property has direct access to the veggie garden which you are welcome to share. You will find an abundance of herbs and greens such as origanum, fennel, mint, celery, parsley, borage, spinach, and wild berries.
The main house is accessed through the veggie garden and there are spacious garden spaces to explore.

Other things to note
The exposed corrugated roof has an authentic rustic appeal. Some guests might not like hearing the rain falling down from the heavens. I grew up on a farm and I love the sound of rain on a tin roof!

Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

There is so much to do and see in the Natal Midlands and its all within easy reach from the Estate. Supermarkets are 5 minutes away and the Howick falls, Midmar Dam, Steam Punk, the Mandela Monument and Piggly Wiggly are all very close by. You will feel as if you are far removed from the action, but its all around the corner!
