Gum Tree Glen offers 2 self-catering units set in the blissful ambience of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Just a stone's throw from Curry's Post and 10 minutes from Howick with its abundant shopping and legendary falls, it overlooks the glorious Karkloof Valley.

Surrounded by farmlands, trees and fields of green, the guests are accommodated in a Self-catering Studio boasting a queen-size bed and a pull-out sleeper couch. The compact kitchenette is fitted with a stove, fridge and microwave, and there is a TV with selected DStv channels available. The bathroom features a shower.

Wrinkly Tin Cottage is a delightfully quirky wood and iron cottage, with hotel quality linen and beds, well-equipped kitchen and beautiful views of the rolling hills of the Karkloof Valley below. The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and features a queen-size bed, 2 single beds and a sleeper couch.

Parking is available on the premises.

The area is a haven for wildlife and guests will enjoy sightings of duiker and reedbuck grazing nearby, hear the call of the fish eagles, and if you're lucky, spot dassies in the nearby forests. The excellent 18-hole Sakabula Golf Course is close by, as is Bosch Hoek Golf Course. Both are top class.

The establishment is ideally located to all of the top wedding venues in the area, like Old Halliwell and Cranford Country Lodge, for instance. Guests are able to enjoy a spot of cycling, walking in the area, or exploring the Midmar Meander. For a family adventure, it is close to Piggly Wiggly and its mini train rides and zip line or the legendary Karkloof Canopy Tours. Also only 10 minutes from Midmar Dam.
