About Berghaven Self-catering Cottages

Berghaven Self-catering Cottages are situated in the peaceful Champagne Valley, just 25 km from Winterton and surrounded by some of the highest and most beautiful mountain scenery in South Africa. Come and enjoy the invigorating hikes or relax around the pool and get in tune with the peace and tranquility of this magnificent countryside.

Enjoy our three cascading dams, forest and open spaces for the kiddies to play and ride their bikes. Have fun in the playground with swings and trampolines. Enjoy the farm-style countryside with us at Berghaven.

There are various restaurants and hotels nearby, as well as shopping facilities for basic necessities.

We offer eight self-catering cottages that can accommodate between two and six guests. Our self-catering cottages are equipped with bed linen, heaters, crockery and cutlery, a fridge, stove topped oven and microwave.

Each cottage has a TV with local channels as well as Satellite viewing, but guests will have to bring their own decoder and smart card. The cottages have outdoor braai facilities and they are serviced daily. We have DStv bouquet channels available in all the cottages, guests are welcome to bring their own smart code and decoder if they wish to have full DStv.

We also have three self-catering flatlets/bedsitters. A room with a double bed, en-suite toilet and shower, kitchenette and barbeque facilities. They are small but comfortable and fully equipped, ideal for a few nights stay or on a budget.

On a day when relaxing is not enough, why not take a drive to the Battlefields, experience some of South Africa’s rich history. Or visit the Valley Bakery, where a variety of home baked goods are on offer. Sit and enjoy a fabulous breakfast while viewing some of the lovely local artwork.

For the more adventurous, visit Four Rivers where activities such as river rafting, quad biking and the exhilarating canopy tours await. In the area you can go swimming, walking, bird watching, fishing, hiking, climbing, and horse riding. Across the way is an award winning golf course at Champagnes Sports. Or for that special occasion, book yourself a helicopter ride over the mountains.

Access to the Valley is very easy off the main highway, the roads are all tarred and drivable.

Please note towels are supplied in the cottages, just not for the pool.

Family friendly: Playground with swings and trampolines. Bass fishing dams for a fun afternoon of fishing. Pool area, great for a family braai with the thatched shelters, tables and chairs.

We had such a wonderful stay at Berghaven, the cottage was well-equipped, clean and we had everything that we needed. A wonderful kids playground and fishing in the dam really made our stay.

We spent a lovely two days at Berghaven. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and with the most wonderful view. The two dogs are well training and friendly. The cottages are close to Monk's Cowl where we went hiking to Nandi Falls.

This little bit of paradise is the perfect place for a rustic and affordable weekend away. Its perfectly positioned to have easy access to the Drakensberg only 5km away. Such a friendly welcome from the Berghaven team! We will definitely be back.

The location is perfect, and very easy to find. Our little room was comfortable and we felt it was great value for money. We went for a walk on the property, and were amazed by the views around us. What made our time even more special was the two dogs that live at Berghaven, that took us on a walk, they even seemed proud of their home, showing us the various hiddens places. A great place to relax, we will definitely be returning.

Lovely stay. Please add to the kitchen ware, there was only two plates, which made it very difficult to prepare dinner. There was no salad bowl, grater, meat plate, scissor ect. Because of this we wont recommend Berghaven or stay there again!
