About Midlands Inverness Cottages

Come and share the quiet tranquility of our farm in the beautiful Caversham Valley, KwaZulu Natal Midlands. Inverness Farm is centrally situated, right in the heart of the popular Midlands Meander route, within easy reach of the finest restaurants, schools, spas, galleries and wedding venues in the country.

Whether you want to overnight en-route to the coast or inland, explore the numerous attractions of the Midlands Meander, or just to relax and unwind in our tranquil surroundings, come and enjoy the fresh country air and our warm hospitality. Wander in the fields amongst our resident brood mares and horses, meet our calves or get acquainted with our special free-range pigs and chickens.

Situated on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful Caversham Valley, we are blessed with magnificent 360-degree views. From the early morning mists in the valleys below, to the glorious late afternoon sunsets on the surrounding mountains and forests.....we are wonderfully spoilt and always in awe of our spectacular surroundings.

Self Catering Accommodation

Our three luxurious self-catering cottages are beautifully appointed, each with their own private garden entrances and parking. The cottages have either queen- or king-sized beds and extra mattresses/sleeper couches can be opened up for children upon request. Snuggle up with our crisp white percale linen, complementary sherry, electric blankets and duck- or goose-down duvets.

All our bathrooms feature good quality thick and thirsty white towels, complementary shampoos, body lotions and soaps. Heaters, thick duvets, fireplaces and electric blankets are provided for extra cosiness during those chilly winter evenings.

For your additional comfort, we provide tea, coffee, home-made biscuits, fresh fruit and flowers in each room, hairdryer, welcoming sherry, good-night chocolates on the pillows, and numerous other personal touches to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one.

All the cottages have a TV with bouquet DStv, access to braai facilities. Firewood is supplied – please bring your own charcoal.
