Waterford Manor is a 10-hectare property with 700m of Mooi River frontage, which offers our guests many idyllic spots for fly fishing and picnicing. We are 7kms from Nottingham Road and 12kms from Mooi River. Our property has a lot of indigenous growth and magnificent trees and we have laid out a couple of walking trails for the enjoyment of our guests. We also have a swimming pool with wooden deck (with lapa and BBQ facilities) overlooking the river.

There are abundant wildlife species - so be on the lookout for buck, mongoose, porcupines and otters, as well as prolific bird species.

In spring and summer, the hillsides are covered in carpets of green, dotted with abundant wild flowers. During the crispy cold autumns, the leaves and grasslands turn burnt orange and yellow, and during winter, the air is frosty and sometimes there is even snow.

You will also find some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the province, excellent fly-fishing, and an amazing variety of craft shops and home industries along the route known as the Midlands Meander.
