About us

Meander down into the valley of peace and quiet, where you can relax and unwind beside our picturesque river. We offer a hearty breakfast after a great nights rest, the guest farm is a place where you can enjoy the pleasure of being really well cared for in a quiet haven of leisure and comfort.

Gowan Valley offers the perfect accommodation for wedding-goers, those who want to Meander and enjoy the fresh Midlands air and business travelers alike.


GowanValley Guest Farm is in the heart of the Natal Midlands, being a 4.5hrs drive from Johannesburg and just 1.5hrs from Durban. It is centrally situated within the popular Midlands Meander route and is 1.8kms from Orchards Wedding Venue.

There are plenty of fun activities for the active such as golfing, mountain biking, hiking etc. and the Midlands Meander provides ample opportunity to relax, do some Meandering, enjoy some fine dining and great coffee.

New ownership

We are excited to share that Gowan Valley Guest Farm is under new ownership. Terry and Tessa Bouwer (past co owners and managers of Umngazi River Bungalows) along with their son Brett and daughter in-law Deanne will be your new hosts.

The Bouwer family also own the hugely successful, remarkably beautiful, nearby Orchards Wedding Venue. We are currently renovating and redecorating Gowan Valley Guest Farm, so please visit soon to see the “new look”.
