Our self-catering guest home is a double storey thatched, semi-detached house which has three bedrooms and sleeps a maximum of six people and we are ideally positioned on the famous Midlands Meander route just minutes from many fine schools, wedding venues and golf courses.

At Manwood Lodge you can bask in the warmth of the sunshine as you take in the mountain views and freshness of the Midlands air in our garden. Or cuddle with your special someone in front of the crackling fire while watching your favorite movie. Escape in solitude to the Midlands, rekindle your romance, relax in divine comfort…rejuvenate your soul.

About Alan & Christine

After spending years building a business and life in the busy city of  Johannesburg, we knew we wanted to retire somewhere much quieter. During the time our son was attending one of the local schools, we fell in love with the area and began searching for properties nearby. As luck would have it we discovered a beautiful property for sale in the Rosetta area of the Midlands Meander and over the coming years moulded it into what it is today. Shortly after retiring here we turned half of the home into a B&B and since then, have enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world.
