There is something to be said about the KZN Midlands as winter approaches. As tree lined driveways are laced with falling leaves, and the chill in the air leads to lit fire places, as a slight mist covers the entire area, you feel like you could be anywhere in the world, but it’s right on your doorstep.
A mere 1.5 hours from Durban, where the terrain changes to rolling hills, and the city life disappears behind you, adventure beckons and a relaxing journey begins, you’ll find the Midlands Meander. Initially an enclave of small B&B’s and cafes, the Meander has grown in leaps and bounds into a thriving route of historical sites, wedding venues, unique eateries and craft stores, offering you a plethora of distinct activities.
Nestled in the heart of this area, offering service from a by-gone era, you’ll find one of the most historic gems, Granny Mouse Country House & Spa. Belied somewhat by its name, that of a country house, one is quickly transported into a world of elegance and luxury, that exudes from every corner of the property.
Home to a host of accommodation options from secluded garden rooms, to the deluxe suites, offering views of the Lions River, complete with the finest finishes and roaring fire places, it not hard to see why the Hotel continues to be a firm favourite among Midlands visitors.
With a wine and food menu to rival, and a recently constructed conservatory offering a glorious view of the rolling hills that epitomize the area, it’s the perfect venue to escape the city and experience the wonders of a Midlands winter.
Take a break from it all, and book your room today. You can snuggle up beside one of the many fireplace and drink a cup of hot chocolate, or red wine, or venture out and explore all that the Midlands has to offer. Whatever your preference, make sure you spoil yourself with the Granny Mouse experience.
