Drakenzicht Mountain Cottage
Self-catering at the foot of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Mountains and World Heritage Site, with unsurpasseded views. Our child-friendly farm house, Drakenzicht Mountain Cottage nestles peacefully amid springs and streams, 27km southwest of Winterton and offers a scenic retreat or a fantastic family holiday in the Champagne valley. Our farm house is situated on a breathtaking 50 acres property and has been nestling peacefully at the foot of the Central Berg for more than five decades.
Our holiday house Drakenzicht has three guest rooms (2 bedrooms with double beds and one with 2 single beds) and a fourth outside room with two bunkbeds. A sleeper couch in one of the double rooms provides extra sleeping space.
The open plan lounge and dining area has a TV and a satellite dish, with DSTV (satellite television programmes) activated on request.
The farmhouse kitchen is equipped with all the necessary amenities. But the star feature of our self-catering accommodation is the lovely covered verandah which serves as entertainment area, with a generous wooden table seating ten and an equally generous view of the mountainous horizon. The open braai (barbecue) facility on the outskirt of our elevated property shares this sweeping panorama.
Come tread more than 3km of the cleared trails through our meadows. Benches dot the landscape overlooking a gorge and the valley below, with the mountains Giants Castle, Injasuthi, Champagne Castle and Cleft Peak all in plain view. The bird life in our lush garden is abundant, and vervet monkeys, birds of prey, bushbuck or even the endangered ground hornbill might surprise you on your lazy afternoon stroll.
Our holiday house is perfectly positioned to explore the numerous hiking and mountain bike routes of the Central Drakensberg, as well as its various golf courses and horse riding opportunities.
Enjoy an amazing Drakensberg stay.
