Set in what must be one of the best gardens in the Midlands, Fiddlewood offers the perfect place to unwind, away from the hustle and bustle, yet within five minutes drive of Howick and the freeway.

Jenni and Pete offer a warm welcome and, as seasoned travellers with several years experience in the hospitality industry, guarantee you a memorable stay.


There are five spacious, individually designed cottages, all of which boast fully equipped kitchens, private verandas, braai facilities, log fires and DSTV, although you will need your own card to access the full range of programmes.

Lakeside and Bergview both have two en suite bedrooms and, with the sofa bed in the lounge, will sleep up to seven people. Garden Cottage is ideal for the family with smaller children, being away from open water and sleeping up to five guests. Oriental and African, our thatched cottages, provide the perfect retreat for couples.

For those guests who prefer B&B in the main house we have two spacious, tastefully decorated, en suite rooms, all equipped with the little extras that ensure your comfort. Guests are also welcome to relax in our reading lounge, watch TV in the television room or socialise in our main lounge, which boasts a cosy log fire for those cooler evenings.

Next to the cottages is our sparkling, salt-chlorinated pool, which provides the perfect place to cool off on those hot summer days. We are also able to offer fishing in one of our dams (stocked with bass) and do have equipment available should you not have your own. Wild life abounds on our fifty acres (a mix of hay and woodland), with a variety of buck, the occasional monkey and a large selection of bird life.



Should you choose to stay for a few days, Fiddlewood is the perfect base from which to explore the locality. The area has plenty to offer with a selection of waterfalls, beautiful scenery and, of course, the famous Midlands Meander arts and crafts all on our doorstep. Slightly further afield, the Drakensburg Mountains and the Battlefields are little more than an hour’s scenic drive away. For the more energetic there are several golf courses, various water-sport activities, horse riding and walking all available locally.


We look forward to welcoming you and, having travelled extensively in South Africa, we know that you will not fail to be impressed.
