Enjoy heavenly scenery all around you from the peace and privacy of your own cottage or suite in the stunning Champagne Valley. Look up at the imposing Drakensberg Mountains of Champagne and Cathkin, with nearby access to the Peaks of Cathedral peak, the majestic Amphitheatre at Royal Natal National Park and Giants Castle. All these areas are waiting for you to explore and each area differs totally.

The accommodation varies from 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed fully equipped self catering cottages to semi detached fully equipped 1 bedroomed self catering units as well as B&B rooms. All the guests can enjoy the rock pool and the beauty of South African sunsets, from your own verandah.

Being just 4 km off the road that leads into the most popular area of the Drakensberg Mountains, the Central Drakensberg, they have the best of both worlds, total peace and quiet and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, but you are near the local restaurants and hotels for meals.

Delicious and plentiful breakfasts are served when possible on the lawn in the shade of an acacia  tree, any type of breakfasts are offered and if you find the views so relaxing request another cup of coffee and take your time! Chat to your hostess about the local activities and restaurants etc and even for recommendations for your next stop.

Play golf and all other sports are available, at the famous  Champagne Sports Resort, or the 9 hole courses of Cathedral Peak and Monks Cowl.

Falcoln Ridge fly their birds most mornings and is fast becoming world famous for their show and the knowledge they impart.
