Newstead Farm, Midlands Meander Accommodation

The country life awaits…

A VARIETY OF COTTAGES
PRIVATE AND PEACEFUL
YOUR HOME FOR A REAL ESCAPE

If you going to visit the Midlands, you should at least experience the country!

Many people make the journey up to the Natal Midlands but then make the mistake of staying in or too close to the towns. They miss the peace and quiet of the country nights and gentleness of a sunrise over the hills. 

Our cottages and rooms are all slightly different and so whether you are a family looking for a longer stay in the area or some friends needing a ‘lock up and go’ in a great location for a Midlands wedding, we have something suitable for most people!

RESERVE YOUR DATES
  • “Newstead Farm is a peaceful getaway in beautiful surroundings. We had three families all stay together so it was wonderful that there was space for everyone to stay on the same property, but we had privacy in our own cottages.We loved having swing ball, soccer balls, boats and fishing rods available to use.  Thank you for having us!
