Berghouse and Cottages

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2014

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 advise you to have at least one breakfast and dinner. Close to Royal Natal Park, but you do need a car. Shops/ATM and gas station are not nearby so remember to stack up before you go there.

Room Tip: Thandani cottage is nice for couples.

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.

We stayed four nights here and spent all our time walking in the National Park. It's a beautiful spot, with manicured lawns, supper available from cook if you want a change from self catering, and wonderful outlook towards the amphitheatre. Not all our days were sunny and that's a bit disappointing. suggest you take a torch and an umbrella.

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 it is self-catering so be well-prepared; the closest towns with amenities are ages away! So make sure you have enough cash and supplies on you when you arrive so you're able to set up the fireplace and relax.
