  • Description
  • Facilities
Ochre House is one of the newer, architect-designed houses in Bergview Estate, an access-controlled secure estate in Central Drakensberg. The house is spacious and the décor a relaxed take on contemporary/ethnic with a mix of antique and modern furniture and an indigenous garden that is a bird spotter’s delight. There are tranquil views from both the patio on the ground floor and the balcony off the main bedroom. A new addition is the outside seating area with fireplace to enjoy on the crisp berg evenings.

With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms the house comfortably sleeps six guests. The upstairs master bedroom features a queen-size bed with an en-suite bathroom and sliding doors opening out onto a lovely patio. The adjoining study has a sleeper couch that can accommodate a seventh guest. One of the two downstairs bedrooms has two single beds while the other has a double bed. They are serviced by a second bathroom and all bedrooms have underfloor heating.

The fully equipped kitchen looks out over an open-plan lounge and dining room complete with a Jet master fireplace in the lounge, making for cosy evenings in front of the house’s television with a DStv decoder. Built-in braai facilities are located out on the patio which has spectacular views of Champagne Valley. The ground floor and garden have wheelchair access.

The peace and tranquillity of the mountains are not the only reasons to visit the Drakensberg. From the cottage there is easy access to numerous walks and hikes. Within a kilometre of the cottage is the Drakensberg Sun Hotel which has swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, boating and trout fishing in the lake. Ochre House guests may utilize all of these facilities at the discretion of the hotel's management. Many other forms of entertainment are available within the valley ensuring your holiday will be full of excitement and adventure.

4 Reviews on Ochre House

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.
