Rather than rush down to the coast like usual, we decided to do a two day stop over in the Midlands. Stocklands Farm rated quite high on Tripadvisor so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The rooms are very well appointed, the services is good, it is very well situated to explore the Natal Midlands,... More

Hard to fault this little establishment. Very well-appointed and spacious rooms with beautiful furnishings. Start your breakfast with their smoothie - YUM! LOVE the tree out front - plus/minus 145 years old and very stately! Thanks to the hosts for a really lovely and relaxing stay of 2 nights. Will definitely stay there again!

The hosts are more than helpful at this lovely bed and breakfast. All our stays here have been great. The rooms are very comfortable and sizeable and they make sure the bed is warm and the room heated and ready on your return along with fruit/rusks and a glass of sherry. The breakfast is excellent - a choice of whatever... More

We stayed at Stocklands for 2 nights over winter which can be very chilly to say the least. We were warm and cosy in our fire heated room with heaters on top of that. We had a great welcome from everyone and were right at home. The bed was so comfortable it felt better than being at home and the... More

We stayed over for the annual BMW Motorrad gathering, and occupied two adjoining rooms in a separate cottage. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. Just like the hosts were very friendly without being intrusive. Located close enough to town but also a little bit out of town so you are close enough to Karkloof Falls as well. Definitely a...

I stay at Stocklands fairly regularly and am always welcomed back warmly. The rooms are more than comfortable and either cooled nicely in summer or heated comfortably in winter. Your choice of breakfast is served in the mornings, and always delicious. I certainly highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

After looking at several reviews on TripAdvisor, and after having some pretty poor stays at other Howicks B&Bs, we decided to try Eve and Roland's B&B. From the moment we arrived, we knew the stay was going to be special. We were welcomed on arrival and shown to our exquisite room - number 2. A king sized bed, a little... More

Spent 2 nights at Stocklands Farm, Howick just before Xmas 2013. Beautiful place, like an English country garden with lots to look at and excellent walks in the garden and woods.

“Rooms 1 and 2 don't seem to get the wifi, so perhaps try others. Although the rooms are really fantastic. Apparently the Pool Room is the place for it.”

“The Courtyard is for a couple and has a lovely lounge and 2 patios. It is away from the main building near the Farmyard and just quaint and comfortable. The other rooms look lovely, but are less private. If you like privacy, being near the animals ( 2 bulls and some donkeys), then you will like the Courtyard. Cosy and beautiful. For those who cannot walk too much, there are rooms in front of the Farm near the reception which look very pleasant from outside.”
