About Pennygum Country Cottages

Paul and Sarah Cooper are delighted to welcome you to our four beautiful cottages with stunning ‘picture postcard’ views of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains just 6km from Underberg in KwaZulu Natal.

Our cottages are set in lovely gardens and apple orchards. They make an outstanding base to explore, hike in the Drakensberg World Heritage National Park, fish, mountain bike, ride or take a Sani Pass tour into Lesotho. You can even go on our rafts or tubes down the Umzimkulu River in season or just enjoy the peace. Pennygum is owner-run and we pride ourselves on giving a warm welcome to our guests and we promise to do our best to help you have a memorable holiday.

Pennygum offers fully equipped and fully serviced cottages, which are beautifully appointed. We have a splash pool and swings for children and most cottages have log fires and electric blankets for winter.
