The Midlands - the heart of the Creme de la Creme


It's Hot and Happeningwarm places, cool places, cosy beds, fireplaces and wide spaces...

... this is where life begins.  Set amongst the beautiful mountains, soaking up the sun and breathing in the fresh clean air from a piece of your own paradise.

Nottingham Road is a village easily reached from the N3 between Johannesburg and Durban, only 20 minutes from the foothills of the Drakensberg.  The landscape here is truly the green rolling hills of Natal, dotted with fly-fishing dams and an ordered beauty that has earned Nottingham Road its place in the heart of the Midlands Meander – an eclectic mix of arts and crafts, restaurants, and a wide range of sporting, environmental and historical pursuits that was originally created to attract visitors off the beaten track.

‘Notties’, as the locals are apt to call Nottingham Road, began as a tented camp, set up by the Sherwood Foresters in 1856 as a military fort to protect farmers in the area from raiding San hunter gatherers, who were indigenous to the area. In 1880 work on the Durban-Johannesburg railway began, running past the original Fort Nottingham by over 20 miles, to stop at Karkloof Station. The village that grew as a result of the station later became known as Nottingham Road.

Nottingham Road locals are a friendly bunch, and there is plenty to do in the area, starting with a visit to the Nottingham Road Brewing Co - a rustic brewery that produces beers with original names like a ‘whistling weasel pale ale’, a ‘pie-eyed possum pilsner’, a ‘pickled pig porter’ and a ‘tiddly toad lager’ - you can understand why ‘Wind in the Willows’ would come to mind.

Roger Nevin, our dedicated agent to the Midlands enjoys selling property in and around the area, as he is so passionate about the area,  and happy to call The Midlands his home.
