Granny Mouse
KwaZulu-Natal
4 stars

An hour from Durban in the middle of nowhere land. This is KwaZulu Natal Midlands Meander. Slow tourism. A route created in 1985 by local artists, potters and weavers who opened six studios and slowed the world down. And there sits Granny Mouse. A couple of hours from the mighty Drakensburg Mountains. A country house and spa rubbing alongside Lions River.

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Grandma just called and said you're supposed to go home. Go. Straight to the mouse house. And what a granny mouse house it is. Green the countryside around her, grassy meadow, wooded hill. Granny is waiting with your slippers. Follow her down the stone stairs, beneath the building, and see her pride and joy. Now that’s what you call a wine cellar. Fitted with a complete dining experience and perfect when you’re thoroughly sick of African sunsets.

32 rooms in the gardens or overlooking the river.

There are deluxe suites, deluxe rooms and garden rooms.

All have king size beds which can be changed for twins. Modern ensuites, wood burning fire and flat screen TV. The deluxe suites face the river as do the deluxe rooms. The latter have patio decks. Some have balconies. The garden rooms also have patio decks and, wait for it, garden views.

There is also The Farmhouse which is a big, sleeper family home. It’s on Oakleigh Farm which is approx 900m from Granny Mouse’s entrance. It’s large, open and light. Self catering or you can ask for a chef. There are 5 bedrooms - two are en-suite.

Facilities

Swimming pool; Fine dining restaurants; Bistro; Spa in the gardens; Award winning wine cellar; Wedding venue; Chapel; Safe parking; Free WiFi

Activities

Obviously, lots of Midlands meandering. From chocolate to cheese tasting, craft shops and restaurants. Biltong makers, beer brewers, cake bakers.

The area is big to explore. You can drive to the Umgeni Valley nature reserve or visit Nelson Mandela’s capture site.

There are places to go horse riding, hot air ballooning or clay pigeon shooting.

If you want to stay put and chill out at Granny’s there are more than 200 bird species flitting around. Wander along the river or walk to the waterfall.
