Lemonwood is a highly recommended property for self catering in Dargle for tourists visiting the Natal Midlands region.

About Lemonwood

Lemonwood, a farm situated in the heart of the Dargle valley and conservancy area, offers an unforgettable experience along the Midlands Meander. We are only 10 mins from the N3.

Lemonwood is in the heart of the peaceful Dargle valley and conservancy area in the Natal Midlands. We are conveniently situated for the crafts of the Midlands Meander, access to the many schools in the area and day trips to the Drakensberg. For those in need of a less active stay, just relax by the pool, take in the spectacular views and breathe in the beauty of the Dargle.

Our farm has 90 hectares of indigenous mist-belt forest with 30 hectares of untouched velt above the bush. There are self guided walks in the forest; ranging from an easy 20 minutes stroll to an all day hike up to the top where you are rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and mountains.

Listen to the eerie sound of the rare tree dassie at night, take a picnic to some of the oldest yellowwoods in KwaZulu Natal, walk around the dam and watch the dancing crowned cranes.

Accommodation

Samango (2 bedrooms):
Both rooms are en-suite with a large, light, open-plan kitchen, sitting, dining area. It stands almost in the forest and has a covered deck at the front.

Dassie (1 bedroom):
The bedroom is en-suite and the kitchen, sitting and dining area are all in one. The tiled patio is a wonderful place to see the birds and butterflies.

Serval (1 and a half bedrooms):
The bedroom is ‘L’ shaped and has an extra bed around the corner. The rest of the layout is the same as the other two cottages.

All the cottages have wonderful views and are very tranquil. They are superbly equipped and comfortable without being fussy. Each cottage has DStv and video recorder for those rainy days. There is underfloor heating, electric blankets, open fireplaces and braai's in all three cottages.

Main House:
For larger parties we also rent out our beautiful family home which was built for entertaining with a huge kitchen/dining room opening out onto the verandah over-looking the indigenous bush and gardens. We have 4 large double bedrooms, all en suite. This can all be expanded with mattresses on the floor and sofa beds. The cosy sitting room has an open fire place and full DStv with DVD player. Please contact us for more information.

If you’d like to wake to a magical dawn chorus, see the Knysna louries flying across our stunning, mature garden or sit out at night and listen to the many night noises from the forest, then this is the place for you.

Pet Friendly

Guests are welcome to bring up to 2 dogs on request. We ask that you keep pets with you at all times as the cottages are not fenced off from the forest and there are other dogs about the property.There are also free range chickens and 3 sheep! Pets will have a wonderful time as there are a number of fabulous walks to go on with them.

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed in the Samango Cottage. Fully equipped, secluded from other people and wonderful view. My daughter said it reminded her of Heidi's place in the mountains. The indigenous forest is just behind the cottage - and we were awakened by the biggest variety of bird calls ever! Apart from all this peacefulness and beauty we felt SAFE. No locking doors all the time or watching over one's shoulder. Our two dogs enjoyed their stay as much. They enjoyed the open grass area and all the walks in the forest. And of course Pepper Pot - the owner's one dog. They had a ball of a time playing together. My son did all the MBT in the vicinity - Karkloof, Howick trail and The Cascade in Pietermaritzburg. If you get up early it is worth taking a day trip to the sea side. We enjoyed all the Arts and Crafts little shops and had lovely pizzas at Il Postino Pizzeria. We found the people of this area very tranquil, unhurried, friendly, helpful and easygoing. And then of course. Our host Katie! It is hard to find someone with such passion for the Dargle, Lemonwood, nature and the environment. She let us feel welcome since we arrived. Her inviting and friendly manner makes her a great human being. Without a doubt - Katie and Lemonwood will see us again.
