The cottages have large comfortable bedrooms, with queen-size beds and the larger cottages also have two single beds in the spare bedroom. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, complete with bath and separate shower, and for your comfort during those crisp winter mornings, under-floor heating.
The large patios, each equipped with a Weber braai, make them the perfect setting for an outdoors meal and sundowners, combined with a panoramic view of the Midlands.
Lions River Country Cottages are just over an hour's drive from Durban and about four hours from Johannesburg. We are also in the heart of the Midlands Meander which is home to many of South Africa's most talented artists, and a tantalizing array of arts and crafts are a few tempting kilometres away. A ten minutes drive will take you into the town of Howick which has an excellent variety of bars and restaurants, several shopping centres, all the major banks, a Post Office, doctors, a hospital, as well as several places of worship. Close too, is the Midmar Dam with its exciting aquatic diversities.
In Room Facilities:
All the cottages are serviced, self-catering units with all bedding, linen, bath towels, kitchen utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses supplied. The cottages each have a spacious and comfortable lounge area with an open Jetmaster fireplace, a dining table, a fully equipped open plan kitchen with an electric stove, microwave oven, a fridge (with a separate freezer compartment) and a dish-washer.
Each cottage is equipped with a Sony stereo TV, DVD player, connected to a dish and decoder. SABC 1, 2 and 3 as well as E-TV are available, but should you wish to view DSTV, it is recommended that you bring your Sim card. DSTV is available in the Guest Suite free of charge.
Activities available to our guests are, mountain biking, fishing, croquet, and, as the area is in the centre of the Midlands Meander, all the extra activities you may want to indulge in, such as shopping for ceramics, clothes and jewellery, golf, horse riding, Midmar Dam water-sports, or even hot air balloon rides, are all within easy reach of our location.
