A country-comfortable Guesthouse in the heart of the Natal Midlands, offering mixed accommodation in deluxe suites, family flatlets, and cottages.
We offer various accommodation options. Close to all Midlands private schools (Michaelhouse, Clifton, Treverton) and most of the wedding venues (Woodridge Estate, Michaelhouse, Orchards, Old Balgowan, Rawdons, Bellwood, Granny Mouse, Glades, St Ives, Windmill, Netherwood) in the area, and golf courses (Gowrie Farm, Bosch Hoek).
In Room Facilities:
All suites have their own bathrooms, their own separate furnished patios, and their own separate external entrances. All the suites are different in furnishings and layout, yet all cover a high level of comfort and spaciousness.
All suites have a full compliment of linen (and spare blankets), toweling, soaps, fans, and electric blankets (with dual controls). Each suite has it’s own coffee facilities, 54-cm TV with SABC + ‘e’, selection of magazines, and patio furniture cushions.
Notting Hill is ideally situated for the Midlands guest visitor. Balgowan is smack in the middle of the whole Midlands sprawl, and we are on the main tarred road.
We have a large reflective sign on the tar road as you round a bend in the R103, onto our paved driveway.
The suites are set into the English gardens, overlooking the large swimming pool, in an open garden amongst some fruit trees. The gardens and bush on the farm has been opened to allow free access to the buck (plentiful), birdlife, and other wild animals that traverse the area.
The landscape here is truly the green rolling hills of Natal, dotted with fly-fishing dams and an ordered beauty that has earned Nottingham Road its place in the heart of the Midlands Meander – an eclectic mix of arts and crafts, restaurants, and a wide range of sporting, environmental and historical pursuits that was originally created to attract visitors off the beaten track.
