My hubby & I treated ourselves to a night away in the gorgeous Natal Midlands this past weekend. My happy snappy's don't do this extraordinary place justice! The little shops along nottingham road are just the sweetest! Some of my fav spots include; The Belgium Chocolate shop- where you are literally surrounded by every flavor of chocolate imaginable! Piggly Wiggly- where they have the most divine farm-like store with all sorts of fresh farm produce, home made jams, biscuits, tarts, fudge, fresh bread & cakes etc, not to mention their restaurant which is known for their delish cappuccino's! My bestest best is the Lavender Trout Farm- they have a beautiful decor shop selling all sorts of gorgeous trinkets, pottery creations, & restored furniture, they also have a restaurant on site called Lush- Best 'home-made' burgers ever!
On Saturday night we went to the Bierfassl for dinner, it is a traditional German restaurant serving all German type foods & delicacies. Hubs & I sat by a warm fireplace where we sipped on red wine (bought from the wine cellar at Piggly Wiggly) & indulged in spare ribs (okay not so German, but we were craving) followed by hot Malva pudding! Yum!
The next day we went to Bloom for brekki- such a gorgeous place. They have two barns which they have converted; one is a restaurant & the other a decor shop. Highly recommend their chocolate biscotti's!
If you haven't done the 'Midlands Meander' yet best you make the trip. Feels like you are a millions miles away but really only a mere hour & a bit from Durban. Clickity click HERE for the official Midlands Meander website.
