Waterford Manor-Self Catering and B&B
Graded by SA Tourism as 4 star.
Waterford Manor is a four star Bed and Breakfast which also offers self-catering accommodation.
Waterford Manor is a 10-hectare property situated on the Mooi River, outside the small village of Rosetta, in the picturesque and serene KwaZulu Natal Midlands. We are 8kms from Nottingham Road and 12kms from Mooi River. We have 700 metres of Mooi River frontage with many idyllic spots for fly fishing and picnicking. The property has indigenous forest and magnificent trees, with walking trails for the enjoyment of guests.
We have a swimming pool with a wooden deck overlooking the river, and a lapa with BBQ facilities, which are available for guest use and comfort.
There are abundant wildlife species, which move freely through all the properties in the region, so be on the lookout for buck, mongoose, porcupines, jackal and otters. The birdlife is also prolific – we have a couple of resident Paradise Flycatchers and have frequent visits from the Brown Eagle as well as the Hammerkop. We also have a pair of resident Gymnogenes.
This tranquil retreat offers tastefully appointed accommodation with lovely decor to match the well furnished units.
