Lovely venue and extremely well run and we'll managed. Stay in one of the main rooms in the Manor House where they switch on your electric blanket in your bed before you go to sleep when it's freezing cold in winter. Awesome surroundings and excellent staff.

We stayed at Calderwood got a family friend's 21st party in their Pavilion venue. We experienced excellent service, delicious food and a really beautiful olde worlde ambiance in the glorious old manor house. The immaculate gardens and gracious setting are perfect for a wedding or special celebration. Only 90 mins from Durban, it makes s lovely weekend getaway.
