Brahman Hills – Featured Durban Blog

Brahman Hills: I have a special place in my heart for the KZN Midlands area, it’s where we got engaged, it’s full of the most amazing foodie places and it’s literally right on our doorstep, yet a trip makes you feel like you were in a distant location, far removed from city life. I’ve stayed in countless Midlands venues over the years – some good, some not so good, some amazing. And my recent stay at Brahman Hills slots right into the amazing category.

The range includes a doll’s house which is personalised and made with care for each recipient, so that no two houses are the same, plus they come with miniature versions of all the Olly Polly kids furniture – from the house bed, mouse ear chairs, cloud table and clothing rails – they’ve thought of it all. Special details such as tiny book ledges, teepee shelves and crocheted rugs are included, as well as the cutest hand painted wooden peg dolls – I seriously have doll’s house envy!!!
