Midlands Meander History

During the 1970s a group of crafter's already living in this beautiful area came up with the idea of forming a collective to encourage visitors to their studios and hopefully, shop. It was the simple, authentic lifestyle of handmade, home-homegrown and lovingly created that they sought to achieve. This seemed the ideal way to maintain that. This lifestyle and these values still echo in the hills today. Each year, more creative souls are drawn by the gentler pace, bringing fresh ideas and new energy. There is always something new to explore among the comfort of old favourites. Discover unexpected gems, be utterly charmed by gracious hosts, learn a new skill at the annual Creative Festival or simply watch a spider spin her web. The Midlands Meander is sure to entice you back for more of it’s magic.

Arial shot of the Everglades country hotelThis fabulous conference venue sits in the heart of the countryside. Breakout of city life and drink in the real country atmosphere with the morning backdrop of the dawn chorus. The sounds are magnificent. So is the sight of the Protea growing naturally behind the hotel.
