Station House – Nottingham Road, South Africa

17 Apr

I joked a while ago that I select weekend getaway locations on their blogging merits and quite frankly I’m beginning to believe it!

We visited Station House near Nottingham Road a few weeks ago on a bitterly cold Saturday, which saw the temperature plummeting down to 2 degrees – thank heavens for the cosy fireplace! The cottage, called The Siding, is located on the railway siding / platform of the old Johannesburg – Durban line, which operated along the Mooi River from the late 1890 until it was decommissioned in 1956. This quaint corrugated cottage is located amongst many 100 year old oak trees and only 50m from the water’s edge of the beautiful and secluded Mearms Dam, which is accessible only to those staying on its banks. The old railway station sign, Fountainhall, now proudly features in the lush gardens.  

What a relaxing getaway and well worth a visit!
