One of the best houses I've stayed in at Bergview Estates (and I’ve stayed in many over the past 10 years) is Ochre house. It's a double story with unimpeded views of the rolling Drakensberg Hills, conveniently situated within walking distance of the Drakensberg Sun Hotel. The house itself is exquisitely furnished in Oregon pine and oak, with kitchen and bathrooms matching any 5 star establishments. There is ample room for all the kids downstairs (and DSTV to keep them entertained), whilst mom and dad have their own suite up above. I loved the privacy and separateness from the other houses, and the lengths Tessa has gone to, to make Ochre house comfortable for all tastes – those in a wheelchair, those who simply want to sit and Veg, and those who enjoy holidaying outdoors. It is truly a ‘home away from home’, and probably a little more ‘upmarket’ than one would have reason to expect.

We enjoyed our stay at Ochre House very much. We did feel though, that perhaps a bit of painting and t.l.c. is required. The views were stunning and there was adequate room for 6 guests.

Ochre House was a great choice for my friends and I.
Everything from the service received to the stay itself exceeded expectations.
