About The Croft

The Croft is a thatched two-bedroom self-catering cottage nestled in the sunny Champagne Valley, with glorious views of the Little Berg.

The Croft is situated on 50 acres of forest and pasture land, with activities available right on the doorstep. There are restaurants nearby, shopping for those who need the rush, and if you are with us during term-time on a Wednesday, the Drakensberg Boys Choir School offers afternoon concerts.

Self Catering Accommodation

The Croft comprises a fitted kitchen, living room with a fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, and two bedrooms each with a shower bathroom en-suite. The living room is a comfortable room with a sleeper couch and a wood-burning fireplace, and firewood is provided for guests' convenience. There is also a TV with full DStv bouquet.

The west bedroom contains a double bed and a shower bathroom en-suite, with a view over the Cathkin and Champagne Peaks and the garden, and features include a dual operated electric blanket, extra throws, and a wall heater and ceiling fan.

The dining area overlooks the garden and the mountains, while the compact kitchen is well equipped for self-catering and includes an electric stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Tea and coffee are also provided.

The pretty garden offers outdoor table and chairs as well as a barbecue facility, with wood provided. There is also limited Wi-Fi availability for suitably equipped laptops, and parking for two vehicles is provided under shade cloth.


Activities abound in Champagne Valley to suit all tastes and levels of fitness. It may be golf, bowls, tennis, swimming, cycling, walking, hiking, horse riding, rafting, adrenalin rush canopy tour, quietness or fishing - you will find it here in our valley.
