About Charles Smythe Cottage

Charles Smythe Cottage is part of the Gowrie Farm Golf and Fly-Fishing Estate in Nottingham Road. Located in the stunning Natal Midlands, the estate is surrounded by well-stocked trout dams, lush bush and kikuyu pastures. This tranquil setting is a guaranteed antidote to city stress.


The cottage has four luxury double en-suite bedrooms; all fitted with flat screen TVs and full DStv. The living area boasts a wonderful double-sided fireplace and magnificent views over the golf course and Clubhouse Lake.

Guests are welcome to wander over to Gowrie Farm Clubhouse for country breakfasts on the sunny verandah. This house has a fully equipped kitchen in an open plan incorporating a spacious dining and lounge area and is serviced daily. A Weber is provided for braais.


Looking for an ideal country venue for a conference? The Charles Smythe Cottage on Gowrie Farm offers a modern 24 seater conference facility.


The golf course has been built in the classic style; tees are close to the ground, the fairways undulate gently and there are push-up greens. The course has the feel of an inland links course and is enjoyable for the average golfer although it still tests the skills of good players. It is a par 70, 9 hole course which has two additional holes. As a result, this gives the course variety and interest and the golfer has the feel of playing an 18 hole rather than a 9 hole.


Being nestled within the heart of the Midlands Meander, Gowrie Farm offers a multitude of activities for those looking for somewhere to while away the time. Visitors who relish the idea of the relaxation and pampering that only a Health Spa can bring, there is also a choice of quality Spas available within close proximity.

For the outdoor enthusiast, Nottingham Road offers wonderful cycling with quiet roads out in the Kamberg, Loteni and Dargle Valleys. There are also a number of mountain bike routes and wonderful hiking trails in the nearby foothills of the Drakensberg. For keen birders, over 200 birds have been identified on Gowrie Farm itself.
