is a four star Bed and Breakfast which also offers self-catering accommodation. Waterford Manor is situated on a 10-hectare property on the Mooi River, just outside the small village of Rosetta, in the picturesque and serene KwaZulu Natal Midlands. We are 8kms from Nottingham Road and 12 kms from Mooi River.
We have 700 metres of Mooi River frontage with many idyllic spots for fly fishing and picnicking. The property has indigenous forest, with magnificent trees and abundant wildlife species, and walking trails for the enjoyment of guests. There is a swimming pool with a wooden deck and braai lapa overlook the river, which is available for guest use and comfort.
Our B&B suites are the most luxurious units, so if you are looking for a special weekend away, these are highly recommended. Our self-catering units are slightly more basic, but very comfortable. All units have DSTV, heaters, electric blankets and their own entrance.
There are abundant wildlife species, which move freely through all the properties in the region, so be on the lookout for buck, mongoose, porcupines, jackal and otters. The bird life is also prolific - we have a couple of resident Paradise Flycatchers and have frequent visits from the Brown Eagle as well as the Hammerkop. We also have a pair of resident Gymnogenys.

Waterford Manor Guest Review
Average Guest Rating:
out of 5
based on 1
We were made very welcome by the house-sitters and thought the room was very well appointed. The breakfast was excellent and the walks on the property were enjoyable. It was just a shame that we could not do our walk at Kamberg but that gave us more time to enjoy the facilities at the Mansion. Having Wi-Fi and DSTV were great advantages as our main trip had fallen through!!! Will look to come again to the self catering side and bring other guests.
