About Caversham Mill

In the heart of the KwaZulu Natal Midlands in South Africa, is the historical Caversham Mill. Caversham Mill Estate comprises the Caversham Mill Restaurant and Manor House accommodation in a peaceful country setting overlooking the Lions and Impafana Rivers.

Self Catering Accommodation

Caversham Mill Manor:
The Manor House can either be rented out as one self catering unit sleeping eight or as three individual suites (in which case people cannot self cater and can eat meals in the restaurant).

Caversham Mill Manor is a beautiful, old yellowwood and stone house. It offers three unique and private suites for those who have a taste for accommodation of distinction. Two of the suites are double rooms, each with their own bathroom (bath and shower), and open onto their own deck areas.

The third is a family suite, consisting of two bedrooms separated by a bathroom. Beds can be configured as either king size or two singles. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and kettle are supplied and are topped up daily in each suite.

All suites are serviced on a daily basis. Guests have access to the common areas in the Manor: a casual TV lounge with log fireplace in close proximity to the open plan fully equipped kitchen (only used when the whole house is booked by one group) and dining area; a formal lounge, also with an antique log fireplace and a library.

Outdoor deck and veranda areas are ideal relaxing and a braai with plenty of wood is supplied. The Manor opens onto a beautiful lawned garden with the Lions River flowing through it.


Caversham Mill Restaurant overlooks the Lions River waterfall and the historical site of the original Caversham Mill. It is a first class, well-priced establishment open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, teas and drinks. Dinner is served from Wednesday through to Saturday. There are also other eateries and pubs along the Midlands Meander waiting to be explored and experienced.
