About Lemonwood

Lemonwood is an ideal base in which to explore the Natal Midlands. Being in the centre of the Midlands, there are all the craft attractions of the Midlands Meander on our doorstep, with some of the finer quality crafts-people happily close by.
There is fishing available locally and riding trails. The activities in the Midlands also include fine and easily accessible golf courses and the 'extreme sport' of the Karkloof Canopy Tour.
We are conveniently situated for the private schools in the area from Nottingham Road to Pietermaritzburg, especially for the events or open weekends at Michaelhouse, Hilton and St. Anne's.
There are several wedding and conference venues nearby as well as a plethora of restaurants

The battlefield area is also accessible for day trips or more extensive overnight stays. We can put you in touch with tour operators if wanted. Also day trips to the world famous Drakensberg are easily accomplished. If you are spending more than a couple of days on the area a picnic, walk or inspection of the cave art (or all three) is a must.
It has to be said though, that we find it hard to tear ourselves away from our beautiful little corner of South Africa in the Dargle.

Lemonwood is in a beautiful setting. Going for an early morning walk each day, I saw so many wonderful birds - including Knysna louries. The weather was gloriously hot, and my children absolutely loved the swimming pool. Areas that could be improved hinge around the overall cleanliness of the cottages, which could also be better stocked with kitchen equipment. Otherwise, we had a great time.

We stayed at Serval cottage, which has a great view, sleeps 3 people and has both a bath and shower. We enjoyed walking in the forest and the solar heated swimming pool was very welcome after a long walk. Lemonwood supplied wood for the fireplace and even built a fire before we arrived. We just had to light it. Excellent value for money.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of Lemonwood. We saw no people until the afternoon before we departed which was a bit daunting for us, coming from a city. However, we loved the forest and the safety of the farm.
