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.

Berghaven is the perfect getaway for all seeking solitude, relaxation and absolute tranquility and appreciation of nature.  Accomodation is neat, comfortable and very affordable.  All cottages have total privacy from one another.  Defnitely recommend it to others seeking to spend quality time out!!

My wife and I have stayed here 8 to 10 November 2015. Although we had booked a flatlet we were upgrade to a cottage.The host was very friendly. The cottage is very nicely furnished with a beautiful view to the lake.I had a look at the flatlet which is much smaller, but also comfortable. It is a very good place to stay and value for money. It is reasonable prized for the area and very well suited for families with children because of the play ground. We intend staying here again.

The cottage itself was very cozy and neat.  The surrounding area was beautiful.  The hostess was a very kind and hospitable lady.  I would highly recommend these cottages to couples and families alike.  And close to amenities.  Lots of fun things to do around the area.
