About Acorn Cottages

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. Once home in the afternoons, 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 mountains we 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 and entertainment.

Self Catering Accommodation

Kingfisher Suite - Sleeps 2
You have plenty of space to entertain on your verandah, to have a barbecue or dinner. Every window has a view, and the view from the verandah, particularly of the sunset, is stunning. It is en-suite and has either a king size or 2 single beds, a third bed can be added for a child. There is DSTV, a CD player, fireplace for winter months and ceiling fans for summer. Double doors open onto the verandah so it is light, airy and sunny. As it is an upstairs unit it is only suitable for those who do not have problems with stairs.

Barn Owl Cottage Sleeps 2
A romantic little hideaway, this cottage is surrounded by roses most months of the year. With Oregon pine sash windows, double doors with stained glass windows and a welsh dresser, it is really cute. Suitable for a couple, with 1 separate bedroom, full bathroom with a corner bath, it is the perfect place for a honeymoon. It is fully equipped for self catering with a full stove and microwave, a fireplace in the lounge, DSTV and a CD player. The verandah has wide views of the Drakensberg and is perfect for sundowners. There is a BBQ on the lawn.

Francolin & Swallow Cottages (Sleep 4 guest EACH)
These two self catering cottages are situated next to each other in an enclosed garden. Each has 2 bedrooms both en-suite. These are the cottages we suggest to guests with families, as each sleeps 4 comfortably with a sleeper couch or spare single bed for an extra person. The bedrooms have heaters and the lounge has a fireplace and TV. The kitchen is full equipped with a stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, etc. The two cottages share the BBQ located between them.


Pay a visit to the Drakensberg Boys School Choir (you will return amazed by the sounds of Africa coming from such beautiful, young voices). Play golf and other sports, at the famous Champagne Sports Resort, or play the 9 hole courses of Cathedral Peak and Monks Cowl.

Falcon Ridge fly their birds most mornings and is fast becoming world famous for their show and the knowledge they impart. For the adventurous, there is white water rafting in season, quad biking and other activities, including horse trails for both the experienced rider and the novice.

The main attraction however, has to be the Mountain, for either a leisurely walk or a vigorous hike, and there are so many to choose from, you could be here for weeks and still need to return for more. If country life is for you, then you have found your venue.
