The Bend Country House is a highly recommended Nottingham Road hotel providing accommodation for tourists visiting the Natal Midlands region.

About The Bend Country House

Situated in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu Natal and in the heart of the Midlands Meander, The Bend Country House, set in a Private Nature Reserve of over 3,500 acres, offers an exquisite blend of Natal Midlands accommodation, intimate pub, log fires and warm hospitality in a colonial tradition dating back to the 1920's, when The Bend first became renowned for its gracious style.

The Bend is a place of striking natural beauty, magnificent scenery, an abundance of both bird life and game, extensive indigenous forests and the lovely Mooi River, who's waters are rich with wild trout.

Accommodation

The Bend offers a wide range of outdoor activities which together with luxury accommodation, superb food, an intimate pub, log fires and warm hospitality, promises a breakaway that will be highly enjoyable for all our guests.

Choose from our selection of comfortable rooms, family unit and three bedroom cottages. Please see individual room descriptions and photos below to assist you with your choice.

Breakfast & Dining

The evenings are a time to relax on the terrace overlooking the river or in front of a roaring log fire in the cosy pub. This can be followed with the enjoyment of fine country dining in our gracious dining room.

Experiences

It is in this setting that you are able to practice outdoor pursuits ranging from the gentile art of fly fishing and birding to hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and paragliding. Alternatively, The Bend offers the ideal base from which to explore the arts and crafts studios that comprise the Midlands Meander, thus ensuring that there is something for every visitor.

Verified reviewvery good

The Bend is a beautiful place in beautiful surroundings. If you need to relax this is the place for you as it is so peaceful. The rooms are very comfortable and Sheila and Alan are friendly and amicable as are the rest of the staff. As there were only 2 couples staying we ate in the bar, the food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance relaxing. As you can tell I am a fan and will be booking in again next time I go to Midlands Meander.

Verified reviewexcellent

From the moment we stepped through the doors we were welcomed by Shiela. The atmosphere was homely, and relaxed. The house and rooms were tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques but with comfort in mind. The meals were deliciously prepared and Shiela went to the trouble of baking a special birthday cake for my husband s 60th birthday as a surprise. The staff were polite and very helpful. Our family were able to enjoy the fishing at the dams and beautiful walks along the banks of the river. In our party 6 adults we had our 10 month old grandson Shiela made sure that we had the use of kitchen to help with the warming storing and preparing if his food. She even arranged for a babysitter at night so that we could all enjoy dinner together. we really had a relaxing and restful weekend in a homely and happy environment. We definitely will be returning. We as a family recommend you visit this wonderful country house.
