Featured Venue – Stocklands Farm
Stocklands Farm is a small working farm set in the beautiful Natal Midlands in KwaZulu Natal. Stocklands farm their own organically grown fruit and vegetables and free-range eggs. These are used with fresh produce from the Midlands for all our meals and guests can enjoy locally produced cheeses, butter, bacon and ham, fish and meat.
Set on 10 acres of garden and pastures, the 150 year-old stone house with original yellowwood ceilings and doors offers luxurious accommodation in Howick in either private en-suite bedrooms or in self-catering cottages. (see photos and more details about the accommodation here: Stocklands Farm).
When staying at Stocklands you have access to fly-fishing on both the Umgeni River and local dams. Stocklands shares a common boundary with Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve where guests may walk, bird watch and view game. Horse riding can be arranged or you could just spend the day in the beautiful garden, have a swim in the pool, walk in the grounds, bird watch or just laze around in the sun! They are located just two minutes from the centre of Howick where you can visit the Howick Falls, local craft and curio shops and the Museum.
