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

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.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at LEMONWOOD and it's surroundings. Katie made us feel very much at home in her lovely house. The indigenous forest walks were very special and we have no hesitation in recommending Lemonwood to travellers from near and far. Aldwyn and Ans Neal

Verified reviewvery good

Lemonwood has gone through hard times in 2020. Nevertheless, the accommodation available for short stays is clean, well stocked and comfortable. The forest paths are well maintained on the whole. Delicious fresh veggies are available in the veggie patch. The small cottages are now permanently let to long-term tenants, with the large 4-bedroom house available for family groups. Bedrooms are extremely spacious, with each having its own door to the outside. En-suite bathrooms are quirky. This is a place to make family memories and celebrate special occasions. Walks through the forest reveal an astonishing array of ferns, mosses and understory plants. We struck a wet patch which shows off water-loving plants at their best. Full marks to the owner and her staff for their attempts to conserve a unique patch of mist belt forest.
