It also centrally situated to most of the schools in the Midlands, making it an ideal base for visitors. Millford Farm is over 180 hectares and offers its visitors lovely walking trails in the pine forests or the beautiful indigenous bush. Tim and Nina, our daughter have made a beautiful walk starting at our waterfall , winding along the Dargle stream past beautiful old Chestnuts and Yellowwood trees. A gentle walk for nature lovers and birders, you might be lucky to catch a glimpse of the Nerina Trogan or Purple Loirie. We have two run off dams, one with a few bass for fun fishing and swimming. Although we don’t have proper MTB trails there are good timber roads for those wanting to bring their bikes. Being on the Midlands Meander gives our guest the opportunity to enjoy the Midlands Meander and all it has to offer –lovely restaurants, shops ,spa’s, galleries, and many adventure activities. ACCOMODATION The farmhouse has two elegant suites that provide romantic, private accommodation; each suite has a private entrance separate from the main house.
