The Bell is situated on Fernwood, at the foothills of the majestic Cathkin Peak.Surrounded by the little berg, free roaming game and privacy of the champagne valley, it is the place to come home to.

The Bell received a minor facelift in October of 2013, and we can proudly announce that is has received a 4 stars rating from the South African Tourism Grading. We strongly believe that the unique and beautiful location is its best assets.

The Bell is a fully equipped three bedroom six-sleeper chalet, with two bathrooms and a reading room. The spacious open plan living area leads onto a cosy veranda with amazing views giving you an instant connection to berg life. The kitchen is well equipped and daily cleaning services will ease you into a relaxing mode. The Bell is privately situated and no other units are visible from the house. For cold winter nights, the Bell is equipped with a fireplace, underfloor heating in the main bedroom and bathroom and electric heaters in all the other bedrooms.

Wild antelope and birds feed on the lawn and can be seen in early mornings.
Fernwood consists of 230ha of pristine mountain property adjacent to the UNESCO Ukhalamba World Heritage Park.

The Bell is the only commercially rentable chalet in this private development. The Bell - the best of the Berg.

We have just had a wonderful few days at the Bell. The unit was exceptionally well maintained, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Beautiful accommodation in a stunning setting to which we will return with joy!

The Bell is exquisite, what you see on the pictures is what you get. From the drive up to the house, to the actual house and the view from the house. We arrived around 19h00 and the offices were closed, however one of the ladies came to check on us the following morning to see if we arrived safely and if there was anything we needed. You don't normally get cleaning services in self-catering accommodation, so this was definitely an up for us. This was by far the best holiday and rest assured we will be going back again.

Fantastic facilities. Beautifully decorated to suit every need. Our second visit and won't be the last. The only complaint is that the walking trails are not clearly marked and in-house facilities like the library and tuck shop and games room were unknown pleasures we could have enjoyed had we known about them.

Was so impressed. From the moment we got there, we experienced great service. Communication was excellent from the moment of making the booking to when we arrived and then the next day, someone came to ask if all was,ok in the chalet. The price is so reasonable. We will definitely go back!

My husband and I just spent the past weekend at The Bell and I must say that this is totally the place to come to to rest, relax and enjoy the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains at their best. The weather played along and it was mid twenties for the entire time we were there. Warm beautiful weather, just chilly when the sun set but there was plenty of wood provided for the inside fireplace, which was very welcome. The Chalet itself was very modern, being newly built and had all the modcons one could wish for. We especially liked the underfloor heating, very welcome on those chilly nights. A special thanks to Shirley who made us feel welcome and took the time to give us directions and phoned us en-route to make sure we were on the right track. It was very special as well to view the roaming game up close, especially the zebra who were browsing on our back lawn for most of the time we were there. It was especially enjoyable to wake up every morning and to see the sunshine reflecting off the mountains. All in all an extremely satisfying and enjoyable holiday, pity it couldn't have been longer but I will definitely go back whenever possible.
