Lastingham Guest House

Rated 4.2 in 6 Reviews

Lidgetton West, KwaZulu-Natal
R 0

Lastingham Guest House is a luxury accommodation located in a tranquil country setting amid rolling hills and beautiful gardens in the foothills of the mighty Drakensberg mountains. The country lodge and farm was named 'Lastingham' after a vicarage in North Yorkshire by the Lidgett family, who immigrated to South Africa in 1849. The nearby small village is called Lidgetton.

Set in 40 acres of pastureland, the original family homestead built in 1912 has been restored to its full Victorian/Edwardian splendour by the hosts, Mike Macnab and Lynne Holding. Lastingham Guest House and bed and breakfast provide an opportunity to enjoy accommodation at one of the Natal Midlands' grand old rural homesteads. It offers luxury accommodation at reasonable prices in a tranquil country setting.

Scattered around the house in the lush gardens overlooking a dam are individually appointed luxurious en-suite rooms designed by Lynne, who has 14 years of experience as an interior designer. The Portfolio Guide to guest houses and bed and breakfasts in South Africa rates the accommodation as luxurious, offering real value for money.

Lastingham Guest House offers a fully inclusive wedding reception package that attends to every detail and need. Wedding ceremonies can be easily arranged at nearby chapels and churches, including the famous Michaelhouse Chapel. The guest house has a resident masseuse who provides treatments in the privacy of guests' rooms. Weddings are tailored to suit individual designs and budgets, catering for elopements and weddings up to 150 people. Larger weddings are held in marquees in the beautiful gardens, with a full coordination service offered.

The guest house has two honeymoon suites with beautiful views of the Caversham valley, percale linen, hand-cut soap, a lounge area, and a king-size bed. Extras like chocolates and sparkling wine can be added upon request. Additionally, there is a garden cottage with a king-size bed (or twin beds upon request), an en-suite bathroom with a ball & claw bath and shower, a fireplace, a verandah with a garden view, and easy access to the main lodge. The cottage also has a mattress on the floor for a child.
