I stayed in the newest cottage (phezu I think) and it was absolutely idilic. Probably more meant for a couple but It was pure luxury on my own. Lovely and warm even when it was cold out and I had everything I could possibly need. Spent the afternoon/eve sitting out on the stoep watching the light change over the drakensberg.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Berghouse and Cottages. Wish it had been longer. We stayed at the Thokomala Cottage (12 sleeper). Spectacular views overlooking the mountains, a private lapa area right next to the house where we enjoyed a braai one night and a potjie the next. On the other side of the house we could pat the ponies,... More

We were three people that stayed here in February 2014 and came rather late that evening. Chantal even phoned to check whether we were OK. We had the privilege to stay in Thokomala - a large house at the bottom which had the luxuries of home. The house was well equipped with cooking utensils and anything one might deem possible....

The Phezulu cottage is an ideal couple getaway and with loads of activities you can be as busy as you want. The place is littered with stunning views along the many hikes and trails. It was a wonderful experience.

Very nice and cosy cottages. You're surrounded by nothing else than Mountains. Very big garden with lots of animals (horses, dogs) so we would definately recommend it for families with kids. Breakfast is served at your room in a basket, a very nice detail. Breakfast and dinner (optional) by the resident cook are fabulous. If you go there, we would... More

What a fantastic place to stay in the Northern Berg! The views are spectacular - could not ask for anything better. You can really come to rest on this beautiful farm that has all the self catering facilities you need. Best value for money.

There's this dog. His name is Punch. What a dog! He'll go with you on a walk or just chill on your stoep. The cottages are very neat and you'll find everything you need. Very close to MTB routes and would make a great stay for families, couples or nature lovers.

Very lovely accommodation set up in the hills of the Drakens. A windy but beautiful 3km drive into the property takes you to the top. Unfortunately for us the weather wasn't kind as both days were extremely wet and cloudy, when the sun popped its head out however you could see just how stunning your surroundings are. Just remember that... More

The Berghouse & Cottages are set within the Amphitheatre. The views are really something! I can highly recommend staying here! There is loads to do from hiking, fishing , mountain biking and of course sitting around a fire, eating biltong & drinking red wine with friends!
