About Birdsong Cottages

Birdsong Cottages is situated On a 32 ha farm 14 km’s outside of Modimolle on the R101 lies Birdsong Cottages, a venue with emphasis on keeping it cosy and luxurious. Birdsong caters for guests wanting to escape the hustle of bustle and enjoy the best the bushveld of the nearby Nylsvley has to offer.

Birdsong boasts a luxurious self-catering thatched Villa with three upmarket en-suite bedrooms, and four self-catering cottages accommodating up to 26 guests. Situated in the midst of rolling hills on a private reserve, Birdsong is the destination of choice when looking for fantastic scenery and peace of mind.

A surprising feature is the old-style 60-seater chapel, with its lush gardens and a birds-eye view of the panoramic valley below. The Uitkyk is the ideal spot for guests to be entertained by not only the never-ending African surroundings but also the free-roaming game - not to mention the prolific birdlife after which the establishment is named.

With its farm-style hospitality in comfortable overnight accommodation you will feel at home right away. Take a stroll through the bush towards the country pool or be more adventurous and follow the hiking trails offering a true Out of Africa experience with breathtaking views.

Spa: Several Health and Beauty Spas in and around Modimolle and Bela Bela offer wonderfully indulgent pampering spa experiences.

                              Birdsong is a beautiful and very peaceful place for relaxation.I liked the fact that they allow music by the pool, that was pretty cool.There are a couple of things that we were not quiet happy about though, the drainage system on the shower was not working, so we basically were showing in an ocean since water could not come out of the drain :-(...this was reported a number of times but still nothing was done about it. The 2nd thing that we did not like was the way the caretaker did not allow us any freedom, he basically was breathing down our necks every second he got, he made us feel uncomfo...

                              The cottage was bit smaller than expected and very rustic. However it was clean and tidy. Amenities are all a bit worn out but sufficient and staff were helpful when we asked for assistance.

                              Our stay for one night in Kingfisher Cottage was very pleasant. We all swam in the pool and went for very nice nature walks. This cottage overlooks a beautiful dam that supports White-faced Duck, Black Crake, Little Grebe and Hamerkop. The cottage was very comfortable and supplied with everything we needed.Both pairs of bedrooms have a bathroom ensuite by both bedrooms having a door leading onto it. It's a novel idea, but needs some managing. The nature trail is very beautiful and we saw zebra, blesbok, impala and klipspringer as well as about 65 bird species including Brown Snake-Eagle and...

                              Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable. A few things were missing and we felt that a more comfortable, sunny outside area would be an idea.William was very helpful and looked after us well.
