mountain hideaway & private nature reserve


We have over 95 hectares of mountains, streams, waterfalls, and indigenous forests, covered by 6 km of trails that are closed to the public, but open to our guests.


You will love the seclusion and peace, and your cabin's log fire will warm your soul.


Not many get to experience these dramatic mountains close up.

Your private Drakensberg experience: self-catering accommodation

We are high in the Monk’s Cowl Reserve of the Central Drakensberg Mountains and closer to paradise than anywhere else in the Champagne Valley.

Step from your cabin into the Ukhahlamba/Drakensberg World Heritage Site and walk beneath the majestic Cathkin Peak and Champagne Castle.

Then enjoy the quiet and peace of the evenings far from civilization, with the sound of the stream flowing gently past your veranda.



If you are looking for a romantic destination and you enjoy the majesty of the Drakensberg Mountains, this is the place for you.

We cannot accept children or pets, and each cabin takes only one couple.

We look forward to your stay with us in this magical hideaway: bring your hiking boots and your binoculars; look out for the buck, eagles, vultures, and other wonderful wildlife on our property; enjoy the sheer range of indigenous flowers and trees; gaze at the clear night sky with its dazzlingly bright stars; or simply put your feet up and chill out.
