Welcome to Ferndene Farm, a gorgeous 6-bedroom self-catering farmhouse with all the comforts of home, surrounded by an acre of lush, spacious gardens and complete with a tinkling forest stream. Ferndene Farm is nestled in the cool green mist-belt forests of the Dargle Conservancy Area in the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.

Set on 52-acres of Dargle farmlands, this lovely 1940s dolerite stone and thatch home is ideal for large groups of people and families. Rebuilt during the second World War, the house was initially used as an agricultural college.

The farmhouse can accommodate up to 15 guests and contains 6 lovely bedrooms. The master bedroom contains a super-king-size bed, and the other 5 bedrooms each contain an extra-length queen-size bed. There are also 3 single beds for children and a travel cot for babies or toddlers. Each bedroom has electric blankets on the main beds, wardrobe space, and a fan to cool you off in the summer. The bedrooms share 3 bathrooms. The master bathroom is en-suite and contains a shower and bath. The large middle family bathroom has only a bath but plenty of space. The bathroom convenient to the living areas has a shower and a bath, plus a separate toilet.

The lovely large lounge features real Oregon pine floors and a large stone fireplace featuring a wood-burning stove for those chilly Midlands winter nights. The dining room features a simply enormous table for eating at, and which is also a billiards, pool and snooker table. The kitchen has a further 6-seater table for eating at and its own pantry and server, so it’s perfect for large groups and families to congregate and cook in together. The old school verandah, which runs the length of the house, is now a series of open passages where you can sit and read or browse the photos of days gone by. Sit out or dine in the courtyard garden, or peruse the larger private gardens at your leisure.

Relax in the rather expansive acre-large private gardens, or use the house as a base for touring the Midlands Meander. Take a walk through the pristine natural forest or head off elsewhere for something to do.
