We booked two cottages (for two couples) to stay over at Waterwoods at Fort Nottingham en route to Durban for just one night. Stunning part of the world and we wanted to stay longer! We had a warm welcome by Lynford the owner, had a great night's rest and explored the property the following morning. The huge lake/dam is beautiful and fly fishermen would LOVE it there. The cottages are beautifully furnished and equipped - good quality beds and crisp white linen. Just a pity they have a garden setting rather than a view of the lake, but really nice anyway.

For anyone planning to get married - the conversion of the stables will be completed in a couple of weeks and this will be a beautiful setting for a wedding - the first wedding is already booked for 250 people - and there will be a chapel and reception area. Beautifully done. And perhaps if you are wanting a really small, intimate wedding, then perhaps Lynford could make a plan at his own house at the lake - because that is a setting that is drop dead gorgeous! (I wanted to move in!)
It is a superb area to explore and do visit the Fort Nottingham old fort - now a museum, built by a regiment from the Sherwood Forest, Nottingham, England.

There are Highland Games held in August in Nottingham Road and will certainly be worth a trip. First we had ever heard of them but
