This well established country house dating from the 1930’s is situated on a magnificent Nature Estate of 1400 hectares. It nestles in a secluded amphitheatre in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg and is a sanctuary for all who visit.

The Nature Reserve features five eco-systems, including indigenous forest, grassland, riverine, mountain and pine forest, showcasing the area's rich diversity of flowers, animals, and bird life. The nurturing environment has attracted the return of many of the species that once roamed the region, including oribi, rietbuck, bushbuck, bush pig, leopard, serval, caracal, baboon and eland.

This stretch of the Mooi River is highly regarded by fly-fishermen who enjoy challenging the Wild Brown Trout that have been here since the 1870’s, and there are also six well-stocked still water dams for the fisherman’s further enjoyment. Other activities include walking, mountain biking, and bird watching. The evenings are a time to relax on the terrace overlooking the river or in front of a roaring log fire in the cosy Ingwenya Pub. This can be followed with the enjoyment of fine country dining in our gracious dining room.

The climate of The Bend has year round attraction with distinct differences between the four seasons - the fresh green of spring, followed by lush summer, then mellow autumn with its rich colours, and finally the crisp winter days with the occasional excitement of snow.

The Bend Country House has welcomed guests since 1994 and has provided the setting for many memorable weddings and celebrations. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

This is to record that our stay at The Bend was absolutely outstanding. Sheilagh made absolutely certain that all meals were different and right out of the top drawer whilst Allan's attention to our other comforts was impeccable. In our opinion a stay at The Bend is a must!

Peaceful and quiet. Nice stop-over in the country.

This is our second stay at The Bend and it never disappoints. The best value for money in the Nottingham Road area.
