About Clivia Hill Guest Cottage

Clivia Hill is situated on Bell Park Dam in the Central Drakensberg region of KwaZulu-Natal and offers self-catering or bed and breakfast accommodation in a tranquil and scenically beautiful setting. The thatched guest cottage, which comfortably sleeps six adults, comprises a living area with open-plan kitchen and three double bedrooms, each with its own bath- or shower room adjacent or en suite. The two upper bedrooms open onto a balcony offering scenic views through 180 degrees. All the rooms are equipped with wall heaters for cold winter nights and ceiling fans and mosquito burners for summer. The living area, which has DSTV and a log fireplace, opens onto a private shaded porch with a built-in braai and a Weber. Stone steps lead down through an indigenous rockery into an extensive clivia-filled garden from which a gate gives direct access to the dam. A two-seater canoe is available for hire. Bell Park Dam is popular for fishing, sailing, motor boating, water skiing and bird watching. Nearby, in the wider Central Berg area, sports lovers have the options of horse riding, golf, tennis, swimming and bowls, as well as canopy tours, horse trails, hiking, cycling, river rafting, motor and quad biking and mountain walking and climbing. For entertainment of a different kind, the famous Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School presents regular concerts during the term and hosts the annual music in the Mountains weekend in late April. Places of interest within easy reach are the internationally acclaimed Ardmore Pottery, the colorful Thokozisa and Cedarwood shopping centres, the Midlands Meander with its craft shops and restaurants, the Spioenkop Game Reserve, rock art sites and various Boer War battle sites, among them Spioenkop and Ladysmith. As to food and wine, the Champagne Valley offers a number of hotels, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as two small supermarkets, a liquor store and the superb Valley Bakery, while a butchery, liquor store, wine agent and larger supermarket can be found in Winterton, as can a doctor and pharmacy. Clivia Hill seasonal specialities: · Music in the Mountains at the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School at the end of April. · Snow on the High Berg in winter. · Clivia season in early spring (end of August to mid-September) when this spectacular indigenous lily is in full bloom throughout the Clivia Hill garden. Bed linen and bedding are provided at Clivia Hill, but no towels or sports gear. Guests must bring their own towels, food, drinks and whatever sports or recreational equipment they require.

We recently spent a wonderful weekend at Clivia Hill Guest Cottage. Everything was amazing from our lovely host Gill, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome to the beautiful setting on the Bell Park Dam at the foot hills of the Drakensburg. Looking forward to returning.
