We loved our stay! We felt very comfortable, safe, and it was very clean. The location was great, too. We just loved every minute of our visit. Kathleen was a wonderful host! she is kind, prompt and helped us with every aspect of our reservation and stay. We will definitely be looking to stay the next time we come to WINTERTON .

The accommodation was clean and functional. It was a shame not to have a double bed in a cottage that sleeps 6. There was a useful pack of information on local attractions and the owners were helpful.

Clean and cosy cottages. Nicely decorated inside, with a friendly and helpful host. Beautiful surroundings and views of the berg. A quiet, tranquil little place near all main attractions.
pj beukes Jul 2016
Our stay at Berghaven Cottages was great! The cottages are really nice and fit into the rustic environment of the Drakensberg. There even is a fireplace to make fire in the evenings when it gets a bit colder in the mountains. The hosts are also really nice and provided us with lots of good recommendations for activities in the area. We highly recommend staying at Berghaven and to explore the dramatic scenery of the Drakensberge from there!
