Overdale Guest House is one of the highly recommended Rosetta guest houses and provides accommodation in 3 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Natal Midlands region.

About Overdale Guest House

Overdale Guest House is situated in Rosetta in the Midlands of KwaZulu Natal, 1km off the R103 midway between Nottingham Road and Mooi River at the entrance to the beautiful Kamberg Valley.


The guesthouse consists of three double, en-suite and individually decorated bedrooms equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, toiletries, electric blankets, heaters and for those cold winter nights a carafe of sherry in your room.


There is a cosy, communal lounge with roaring log fire, where guests can watch full DStv, read a book, play a board game or simply relax with a tipple of your choice. A full English breakfast is served in the adjoining dining room any time from 07h30 to 08h45.

Outside you'll find an immaculate garden with a fire-pit and seating. Guests are welcome to use the facilities to have a BBQ, should they require.

Horse studs and large cattle farms dominate the lush landscape of the area and horses, cattle and sheep can be seen everywhere. You are also bound to encounter wild buck, chattering guinea fowl, porcupine, and amazing bird life including raptors and a resident pair of Fish Eagles.

Activities and Attractions

Venture into the uKhahlamba Drakensberg World Heritage Site which contains the Kamberg Nature Reserve with its 'Rosetta Stone' of San Rock paintings, Highmoor Nature Reserve where you can walk till ‘the cows come home’. A little further on is the Giants Castle Nature Reserve with its San paintings, Raptor Hide and Eland, South Africa’s largest antelope. Many of the farmers in the valley are Crane Custodians and you will find the local Crane Foundation along your way.

The hamlet of Rosetta can claim to have probably the best wine outlet for many a kilometre, you are sure to find your favourite wine at the Wine Cellar. Excellent restaurants and pubs in the area provide you with fine fare and beverages. We are also in close proximity to Michaelhouse, Clifton, Treverton and Weston private schools.

The whole of the R103 route from Hilton in the south to Mooi River in the north contains all manner of interesting stop offs including arts and craft shops, The Nottingham Road Brewery, fine coffee shops and waffle inns and many many more attractions to keep you busy, making up the famous Midlands Meander.

On the sporting front you will find good road cycling routes and excellent mountain bike tracks in the nearby vicinity. Other activities in the area include trout fishing, hiking, horse-riding and Gowrie Golf Club. Our altitude of 1441 metres above sea level offers good training for roadrunners especially those who wish to run Comrades. Not too far away in the Karkloof you can take an exhilarating trip on the well-known Karkloof Canopy Tours or visit the impressive Howick Falls.

First class accommodation and excellent value for your rand. The breakfast is outstanding and hostess/owner Dee is very kind and professional. The rooms are very well appointed and spotless. If and when I return to the Midlands this is where I plan to stay.
