About The Farside Farm

The Far Side Farm consists of self-catering and boutique bed and breakfast venues offering classic, upmarket and homely country accommodation, all with modern appointments and facilities, nestled in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Meander.

Spacious bedrooms, magnificently appointed with antique furnishings, ball and claw baths with Victorian-style brass fittings, quality linen, electric blankets, under floor heating and DStv.

One of the rooms, which also boast all the same furnishings, fittings and facilities - has a comfortable sleeper couch so that young children can be accommodated with parents.

The self-catering cottage has two caringly appointed bedrooms nestled on either side of a cosy open plan living area which opens onto a patio with magnificent views over an 11/2 hectare trout dam. These spacious, homely bedrooms are equipped with antique furnishings, quality linen, electric blankets and television.
