About Bellwood Cottages

A mere four hours from Johannesburg and two hours from Durban, deep in the heart of the breathtaking Natal Midlands, rests Bellwood Cottages.


We offer seven comfortable, fully equipped self-catering cottages. Cypress - a family cottage accommodating six people. Yellowwood - a secluded ‘honeymoon’ cottage. Hadeda, Heron, Kingfisher, Spurwing and Guinea Fowl are the five cottages on the dam. All dam cottages have four or five private double rooms and a cosy loft accommodating up to five people. Bellwood represents the best you can find in farm accommodation within tranquil surroundings.

All the cottages have fireplaces, bedding, electric blankets, a fridge, stove and microwave oven, a TV and braai / barbeque facilities. All cottages on the dam have the "Hotel" DStv bouquet.

Attractions and Activities

Bellwood is on a 585-acre stud farm with some of the most impressive walks and wide-open spaces that KwaZulu Natal has to offer. Children are welcome! Farm life provides considerable entertainment with an abundance of farmyard animals and ‘goings-on’ to keep them out of mischief.

A two and a half kilometre ramble brings you to the quaint village of Nottingham Road which forms a central part of the famous arts and crafts Midlands Meander and has some of the oldest pubs in the province. For those with a sporting inclination, tennis and golfing facilities can be pre arranged.


A tranquil country retreat is not all that Bellwood has to offer! On the farm, a ‘cast’ away from the cottages, are two dams, one a spacious 16 acres and the other a smaller 5 acres in size. The larger dam is 30 feet deep at the wall and is liberally stocked with rainbow trout, while the smaller dam is filled with both rainbow and brown trout. The aim is to satisfy the keen fisherman and the sizes of the trout range from one to nine pounds.

The larger dam also sports five rowing boats. The farm is very close to a well equipped fly fishing shop and Nottingham Road village boasts a local butcher who is available to smoke all your catches. Pre booked trout fishing lessons and hiring of rods available on request.


Should guests wish to invite friends, prior permission must be obtained from Management. Subject to the number of guests, a levy per person will be charged. No pets are allowed. An initial supply of wood and coal for the inside fireplace is provided. Further supplies will be for guest’s own account. No smoking is allowed in any of the cottages.
