Situated in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands at the gateway to the Drakensberg foothills, Granny Mouse Country House is a charming country hotel with thatched cottages. Granny Mouse Country House is positioned on the Lions River and surrounded by indigenous bush, resulting in an abundance of wildlife and bird species. You could spend the afternoon taking a leisurely stroll down the River Walk towards the waterfall, or laze under the willows on the Common.

You could even try your hand at fly-fishing just below the rapids in one of the pools. For a day of exciting activities you can go on a Karkloof Canopy Tour, explore the area on horse back, get an aerial view form a hot-air balloon or amuse yourself with an afternoon of shopping in the Midlands. Granny Mouse Country House is a cosy, welcoming retreat ideal for romantic getaways and honeymooners.

Granny Mouse Country House

Kate Salisbury

Granny Mouse was a surprise – with so much going on we had not looked at the trip or where we were staying for so long we had forgotten. It was much bigger and fancier than we had expected (we were thinking little b&b type place). The staff were ex ceptional, the food in both the bar/bistro and the fine dining were beautiful. The rooms are a bit dark (heavy timber and limited lighting) but very cosy and big. We watched the rugby in the bar and spent a rainy afternoon resting by the fire in the room –was probably our favourite.

We enjoyed Granny Mouse and just wandering about the Meander and exploring some of the shops and galleries, especially Lions River Trading Post, Nottingham Road and Piggley Wiggleys and I was able to do some shopping. David bought a couple of antiqu es as well and pipe tobacco. Staff at Granny Mouse were extremely helpful in accommodating our needs, even to the extent of installing a grab rail in the toilet for me to make things easier.
