About Acorn Cottages

Situated on a peaceful small holding, we offer cottages for self-catering holidays and weekends. Enjoy beautiful scenery all around you from the privacy of your cottage in the stunning Champagne Valley.

All our units are different and fully equipped for self-catering, apart from our two Bed and Breakfast Rooms. Look up at the imposing Drakensberg Mountains of Champagne and Cathkin, with nearby access to the peaks of Cathedral Peak, the majestic amphitheatre at Royal Natal National Park, and Giants Castle.

Enjoy the rock swimming pool on a hot summer’s day or the lovely sunsets from your own veranda. Sheep, cows and even guinea fowl stroll around the property at leisure, and our great dane will love and play with your children. Activities in the area include horse riding, fishing, walking, hiking, white-water rafting, bushman paintings, bird watching, local crafts, golfing, bowls and bass fishing about five kilometres away.

Being just four kilometres off the road that leads into the mountains, we have the best of both worlds, offering total peace and quiet in a friendly atmosphere. In the evenings, choose from three local restaurants or braai at your cottage while you plan your next day. We are happy to assist you with local outings or offer advice for travelling onwards.

Liked the friendly reception, farm atmosphere and the dogs. The unit we stayed in could be improved. There is a broken heater in the bathroom that apart from not looking great, could hold a shock hazard. Several lights did not work and even though the maintenance people came to replace one of them, this should be checked beforehand. The one bedside lamp has absolutely no place to plug into (not without a long lead). No braai utensils. Remote for the front gate did not work. It was replaced, but the replacement also did not work, which was quite frustrating. Lots of potential to improve...

Cottages were ok, maybe need a bit refreshing.It's a bit old fashioned but ok. To my understanding the precontact could be better. Was promised a few times documentation will be sent shortly but I never it receive it until. I asked repeatedly. Received just a short mail with the account no from the bank, this is ok if you live in SA but from outside you need more details from the bank and this I had to find out myself. I think this should be improved.But the stay was ok. Unfortunately only had contact to the owner when we left.

First time in my life where I was very well rested and felt totally relaxed. You must be an animal lover, otherwise it will not work for you. It was awesome.

Hi My disappointed and anger delayed my response to your e-mail.Firstly, if I was blindfolded and led into the cottage I would have been somewhat impressed with what I saw inside.Now to relate my disappointments:1. The venue advertised on your site was deceptive. The picture of the water feature, situated alongside the main house, is no way a representation of the location of the Cottage we had occupied.2. Our accommodation was located about 300 metres from the main house, hidden among the pecan nuts trees which had shed all its dried leaves.3. We were received by a staff member, Petunia who...

It could not have been more perfect for our family, pet friendly, the dogs had freedom to play and roam, the kids had space and privacy to be kids, perfect setting, perfect warmth, welcome attitude of the manager Kyle, he came through for us in extra special ways.
