About Hilltop Cottage

Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the breathtakingly picturesque Bushmans Nek valley with unsurpassed views of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains, Hilltop Cottage is perfectly located for your country getaway, where you can escape for a relaxed and undisturbed break in tranquil surroundings. Enjoy rigorous walks in the mountains or gentle, scenic riverside strolls, a picnic at the dam, horse riding, canoeing, swimming, trout fishing, or simply relax on the veranda with a glass of wine and a good book – this is the perfect place to unwind.

Self Catering Accommodation

Hilltop Cottage is a brand new, fully equipped and beautifully appointed, two bed-roomed self catering cottage set on Farraway Farm which is located along the Bushmansnek Road, just outside Underberg. This is the only guest accommodation on the farm, which is set on a hilltop away from the main farmhouse. Here you are guaranteed privacy, solitude and tranquility. The cottage consists of two en-suite bedrooms and a large, open plan lounge, breakfast bar and dining room. The covered veranda offers panoramic views over the mountains. There is also a double carport and a lock up storeroom for bicycles etc.

Stylishly decorated, the cottage contains a flat screen TV, DStv, a variety of DVDs, games, books and cards, comfortable beds with percale linen, hairdryers, electric blankets, and a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and homemade rusks – everything you’ll need to be comfortable and enjoy your stay with us.

The kitchen contains a stove, a microwave oven, washing machine, a large fridge/freezer, glasses, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, baking dishes - just about everything you’ll ever need. The lounge features a large double-sided fireplace and we provide plenty of firewood, firelighters and matches, ensuring that you are kept warm and cozy throughout the cottage on those cold winter nights. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms. One bathroom features a spacious shower; the other bathroom has a large bath and a shower.

We provide all bed linen, towels, shampoo and soap. Whilst we are not strictly a B&B establishment, we can provide breakfast by prior arrangement. There is a covered veranda with an outside table and chairs, as well as a braai area. The cottage is serviced daily. We don’t allow pets.

Activities and Attractions

Activities on the farm include walks and hikes, fishing – either in the dam or the river, easy access to mountain bike trails, swimming, tubing and kayaking. While you are in the area, take the opportunity to explore the many local attractions, such as walks in the mountains where you can see Bushman paintings and indigenous fauna and flora, or take a trip up the legendary Sani Pass into Lesotho.
