Opposite St Ives is where you will find the Piggly Wiggly Country Village,which is perhaps the most visited place on the Midlands meander and has enough to occupy you and the "kiddiewinks" for several hours..and is a "must" visit.The village is a mix of eating places, arts, crafts, clothing and decor outlets. Recently a "Piggy Putt" was added and forms the centre piece,which is in pristine condition, as is the rest of the village.

One of my favourite shops in the village is Free Range Interiors & Clothing...where each item is carefully sourced to offer the shopper an exclusive and unique purchase.They offer Go to town - country style, classic & comfy ladies clothing. Their decor items also reflect the same style..

Country Classic Home

Frankie & Delilah stock a wide range of beautiful and different gifting items. They are also official stockists of Trollbeads, Ice Watches, Havaianas, Hunter footwear to name but a few of their international brands. F&D has two other branches in Morningside and Bryanston, Johannesburg.

A visit to Piggly Wiggly would not be complete without a visit to the "Three Fat Pigs Cheeses & Deli", but again be warned that you will not be able to resist their selection of local cheeses,chutneys,pickles and the home baked breads,pies and quiches....all of which are very yummy! This is where we bought all our "goodies" for our picnic on our "Sundowner Island" back at Beacon Vlei. 

Armed with our "foodie" purchases, which were enough to feed a "sty full of pigs" we headed back to the guest house to have our picnic and open a bottle of Woolworths Bucks Fizz! Their we sat and watched the sun go down and this rounded off a lovely day spent on the Midlands Meander..
