About Muddy Paws Farm
Muddy Paws is a hobby herb and lavender farm situated in Crestholme, just outside the village of Waterfall; on the outskirts of the Valley of Thousand Hills. The little farm comprises just under four acres with a herb nursery and herb garden on site. There is a craft studio and farm shop stocked with a limited amount of previously loved books, herb books, herbal tinctures, teas, herb products, jams, pickles, biscuits, fresh free-range eggs, farm produce such as fresh-cut lavender bunches and herbs (when available) and handcraft for guests to browse. Craft workshops are also held from time to time in the studio. Guests are welcome to book into these workshops should they be interested in the craft being taught at the time of their stay.Owl Cottage sleeps four guests. Guest can enjoy the peaceful surroundings, stroll through the lavender fields, pick their own lavender and generally just relax. For birdwatchers the Blue Kingfisher, Gymnogenes, African Hoopoes, spotted Eagle Owls and Wood Owls are a common occurrence, with a Blue Crane making an occasional appearance.There are farm animals on site such as Daisy the Jersey Cow, Eeyore the Donkey and Hansie the goat. Two geese, a multitude of rabbits and chickens, two Great Danes, and a hearth rug called Coco, make up the rest of the quota. We are situated about 7 km from Waterfall and Watercrest Mall for restaurants and shopping, close to Inanda Dam for fishermen, 40 minutes outside of Durban, on the Thousand Hills route doorstep and an hour away from the Midlands Meander. Horse riding can be arranged, and there are quad biking trails on Butler’s Farm just down the road; bring your own bikes. Muddy Paws Farm is the perfect place to use as a base for further sightseeing whilst still providing that country feel - not too far away from Durban by the sea (38km) or shops and restaurants.
Family friendly: The farm has a tyre swing, tug rope and farm animals. A camp cot is available on request. Herb nursery and limited herb products available.
50% deposit required, the balance is payable on the day of arrival.
