Discover Waterford Manor, Rosetta, Kwa Zulu Natal Midlands

Waterford Manor is situated on a 10-hectare property on the Mooi River, just outside the small village of Rosetta, in the picturesque and serene KwaZulu Natal Midlands. We are 8kms from Nottingham Road and 12 kms from Mooi River.

We have 700 metres of Mooi River frontage with many idyllic spots for fly fishing and picnicking. The property has indigenous forest, with magnificent trees and abundant wildlife species, and walking trails for the enjoyment of guests. There is a swimming pool with a wooden deck and braai lapa overlook the river, which is available for guest use and comfort.

Our B&B suites are the most luxurious units, so if you are looking for a special weekend away, these are highly recommended. Our self-catering units are slightly more basic, but very comfortable. All units have DSTV, heaters, electric blankets and their own entrance.

There are abundant wildlife species, which move freely through all the properties in the region, so be on the lookout for buck, mongoose, porcupines, jackal and otters. The bird life is also prolific – we have a couple of resident Paradise Flycatchers and have frequent visits from the Brown Eagle as well as the Hammerkop. We also have a pair of resident Gymnogenys.

Also in the area: golf courses, horse riding, forest canopy tours, hot-air ballooning, sightseeing, shopping, fantastic restaurants and pubs, the Drakensberg nearby … and much, much more!

We had 4 fabulous days and nights at Waterford Manor and were made to feel like old friends rather than guests.The rooms both self catering and B&B are very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for a meandering trip around the midlands and the the gardens are well kept with a stunning view across the river.We would not hesitate in recommending Waterford Manor as a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be back in the near future.
