Muddy Paws Farm

Self catering farm cottages & herb nursery



See details below. 


Muddy Paws Farm Cottages

 Our two self catering cottages are situated on our 4 acre hobby herb and lavender farm in Crestholme, just outside Waterfall, just outside Hillcrest. 

We are conveniently situated on tar an hour away from the Midlands Meander Route, and 40 mins away from Durban City and the beaches, but still retain a semi-rural feel.  

Guests are invited to wander around the property, which has an olde worlde farm feel, complete with Daisy the cow, Eeyore the donkey, clucking chickens, bouncing rabbits, a goat called Hansie, and a gaggle of geese. Appreciate the beautiful clear starlit skies at night, and listen to the call of the resident Wood and Spotted Eagle Owls.  Please see our Cottages page for more info and photographs.

Children love Muddy Paws Farm as there is a host of animal people to greet them, from Eeyore the donkey, to Gershwin the Goose.
