At Barland we offer you the chance to come relax and unwind in the beautiful KwaZulu Natal Midlands. We are situate well away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to the action of the Midlands Meander. Ten minutes from Midmar Dam and thirty minutes from Pietermaritzburg. An easy day trip to the Central Berg and Durban is only an hour and half drive away. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area.

Barland Cottage is a very pretty thatched cottage with its own private entrance, and fenced garden. The cottage consists of one bedroom with a Queen-size bed and an electric blanket, two single day beds in the lounge area and a cozy fireplace. DSTV is provided. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped. It has a fridge/freezer, microwave oven and a two plate induction stove top. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and rusks are provided. A small wooden deck overlooks the garden and the surrounding hills, perfect for those afternoon sundowners. A Webber is provided.
