A Unique retail & lifestyle experience

Welcome to a special corner of the Midlands in Howick, Kwa Zulu Natal. Yard 41 is your destination for a fabulous retail and lifestyle experience, offering you a place to shop, eat and relax with awe-inspiring views across Umgeni Valley. Our family owned centre has two spacious restaurants, Village and The Treatery, both offering a range of breakfasts, light meals, Pizzas, cakes, bakes and evening dining. The original 1941 building is where you’ll find The Ruby Orchard a gorgeous furniture, décor and gift store. The quirky marble fronted shop next door is home to the most beautiful baby and toddler clothing and gift store, Abby River. Across the Yard you can wonder through the delightful Blackwood’s Gardenette nursery.

Our children’s play area is built for adventure. Designed to develop strength, balance, flexibility and coordination your little ones will love this space on the lawn.

This little piece of the Midlands was completed by our family, The Kepplers, in 2016 with the creative eye of local architect Nick Crooks. We know that the thoughtfully curated architecture is going to blow you away!

We hope you enjoy your time at the Yard.
