About Hill Billy Cottages

Hill Billy's Self Catering Accommodation is based in the Champagne Valley, Central Drakensberg. The cottages are ideally located in the heart of the Valley, making it easy for you to enjoy the local activities and attractions.

The cottages are run by your hosts, William and Hilda Thornhill, who have been hosting guests since 1996. The cottages are on a working vegetable farm, so you and your family can enjoy and experience the farming environment, and explore the grounds

Self Catering Accommodation

The accommodation we offer is made up of a 2-sleeper cottage, two 4-sleeper cottages, and a 6- sleeper cottage. The property driveway is lined with pecan nut trees, and the Champagne mountain range provides an exquisite and dramatic backdrop to the cottages. There is a swimming pool for you to enjoy and cool off in the hot summer months, and it has one of the best views in the Berg. A perfect way to unwind!

The Kitchens have a microwave, fridge, stove/oven, and dishwasher. Each cottage has braai facilities. A TV with DStv is available in each cottage. Each cottage has a fireplace, making each cottage a comfortable and cosy place to relax in the winter.
