In the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in South Africa, is the historical Caversham Mill. Caversham Mill Estate comprises the Caversham Mill Restaurant, Manor House and Country Cottages - 4 star graded accommodation in a peaceful country setting overlooking the Lions and Impafana Rivers.

Caversham Mill Manor, a four star graded establishment, is a beautiful, old, yellowwood and stone house, situated in the heart of the KwaZulu Natal Midlands Meander. It has been fully restored and now offers three unique and private suites for those who have a taste for accommodation of distinction. Two of the suites are double rooms, each with their own bathroom, and open onto their own deck areas. The third is a family suite, consisting of two bedrooms separated by a bathroom. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and kettle are supplied and topped up daily in each suite. All suites are serviced on a daily basis. Guests have access to the common areas in the Manor: a casual TV lounge with log fireplace in close proximity to the open plan kitchen (only used when the whole house is booked by one group) and dining area; a formal lounge, also with an antique log fireplace and a library. All suites have telephones as cell phone reception can be intermittent. Outdoor deck and veranda areas are ideal relaxing and a braai with plenty of wood is supplied.

Suite 4 is a family suite with 2 bedrooms (each bedroom has two single beds). The bathroom is between the two bedrooms.

Suite 5 is a double room with an en suite bathroom - bath and shower (the bedroom has a king bed that can also be converted to two single beds, and a sleeper couch).

Suite 6 is a double room with an en suite bathroom - bath and shower (the bedroom has a queen bed in it and a sleeper couch).

The Manor opens onto rolling grassed lawns. A decked pathway leads through a wetland area down to the Lions River which runs in a semicircle around the property. A stroll along the well maintained paths will bring guests to the confluence of the Lions and Impafana Rivers, where it is pleasant to swim or picnic.

And within a few metres from the Manor is the Caversham Mill Restaurant and the ruins of the old Mill which is in the process of being restored. Manor guests can enjoy excellent food (breakfast and lunch seven days a week; and dinner from Wednesday to Saturday) on an á la carte basis.

Founders Gallery at Caversham Mill

The Midlands Meander was the very first crafters ramble established in South Africa, and Caversham Mill is where it all began in 1985. Caversham Mill has set up a small gallery next to the Caversham Mill Restaurant, where guests can view the current work of David Walters. And continuing a family tradition, David's daughter - Sarah - has become an excellent potter in her own right. Her work is also on display in Founders Gallery at Caversham Mill.
