Nottingham Road Photographs

Send to Kindle

Nottingham Road, one of my favourite places in South Africa is a quaint farming village in the heart of the Natal Midlands in KwaZulu Natal.  Surrounded by spectacular scenery; think green rolling hills, snow capped mountains in the winter (actually Notties has been known to have a substantial amount of snow during the winter!), fly fishing dams, fields filled with grazing cattle and trees turning colour during the autumn it truly is a beautiful part of the country.

As part of the hugely popular Midlands Meander it offers a wide variety of gorgeous shops, restaurants and sunny spots for coffee and cake! Don’t forget to stop for a beer at the Nottingham Road Brewing Co and of course if you are in Notties then a visit to the infamous Notties Hotel is a must … just don’t wear a tie!

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!

    Dear SA Venues team,

    Thank you for your lovely post on Blueberry Hill. Please could I give you some updated information as things have changed somewhat in the last couple of years. The coffee shop is still there but now houses the following bronze sculptors – Sarah Richards and Allan Hallet as well as David Wheildon (Oosthuizen). The shop next door is now a decor shop.
    Also the opening hours are – 8am to 4pm – 7days a week

    Many thanks
