Stay at Glen Ormond outside Rosetta, near Mooi River, in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Meander offering self catering bed and breakfast cottage accommodation.
Glen Ormond is an exclusive guest house in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands situated on a picturesque and serene 6 hectare property elevated above the Mpofana (Mooi) River between the towns of Rosetta and Mooi River. We offer luxurious accommodation in either private en-suite bedrooms or in self-catering cottages. All rooms have their own entrance and secure parking. Electric gates and an intercom system control access to and from the farm.
The Midlands Meander in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, is a collection of arranged routes that offers visitors hospitality in truly beautiful surroundings, fascinating local events, fabulous cuisine, revitalizing outdoor activities and over-the-top adventure sports, historic landmarks, wildlife conservation, and best of all “shop-till-you-drop” unique arts and crafts.
An easy one-hour drive from Durban and four and a half hours on the N3 highway from Johannesburg, there is much to explore and do in the Midlands. Discover our local artists and try on some wool lined leather boots or hand crafted leather shoes. Buy a new handbag and show off your purchases at the local brewery while sampling mugs of local beer, shop till you drop and eat to your heart’s content. Midmar Dam is a 35-minute drive away and offers sailing, water-skiing and board sailing, pleasure cruises and game viewing. Golf, fly-fishing, horse riding, a tour of the Battlefields and a treetop tour can be arranged if you are looking for a bit of adventure.
A good reason to come to Rosetta is to see the dramatic views of the Drakensberg. The hillsides come alive in spring and summer with abundant wild flowers; the cold autumns are an array of burnt orange and amber; and crisp, chilly winters offer a frost-laden air with snow-capped peaks in the distance and sometimes snow on the ground. Romance, myth and history seem to intermingle in this part of KwaZulu-Natal where dairy farming and trout fishing rule and where unsung gems of old Natal history pop up at the most unexpected places.
Glen Ormond nestles comfortably in this interesting, historic and romantic part of the Midlands. We offer self-catering accommodation, bed and breakfast or full board. Our establishment has much to offer the discerning traveler. Abundant wildlife species move freely through the properties along the river, so a sharp eye will spot jackal, buck, mongoose, porcupine and genet. Our birdlife is prolific; Brown Eagle, Hamerkop and Long Crested Eagle, Gymnogenes, Natal Robins and the chattering Green Wood Hoopoe are frequent visitors to this property.
