Free Range Children

What better place than Bellwood to let your children roam free and enjoy the outdoors - the best the Midlands of Kwa-Zulu Natal has to offer.

Walks around the farm

The Midlands region of KwaZulu-Natal has been likened to a typical English countryside, with its rolling hills, green lawns, streams and rustic atmosphere. 

For birding enthusiasts

Well over 650 species of birds have been recorded in the small province of KwaZulu-Natal. Bellwood is the home to a number of bird species.

Enchanted Forest

The snow that fell at Bellwood in the winter of 2012 has resulted in a community of gnomes setting up home in the forest next to the access road.
