About Hobbit's Cottage
Welcome to Hobbit's Cottage.
A charming and beautifully situated award-winning 'eco' cottage. Comfortable with all amenities to make for an enjoyable stay. Close to the Kruger National Park, God's Window, Blyde River Canyon, and other attractions of the Mpumalanga area. Hobbit’s Cottage is north facing with a view across the valley towards Uplands school and the White River landmark of Legogote.
The local airport, Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, is a 25 minute drive from the Cottage. Hobbits Cottage was built as part of an eco-home design project undertaken in 2010. On completion this home won awards for its ‘green’ design and structural features. The exterior walls are ‘rammed earth’ in an attractive sandstone hue. The walls were hand crafted using a mix of natural earth sourced locally, with a small percentage of lime mixed in for binding.
The entire property is a birdwatcher's paradise, and there are often sightings of small wildlife. Guests are welcome to walk through the natural habitat.The cottage is 'off-grid', with power provided by solar panels and has its own borehole which provides water for all purposes, including drinking. The cottage includes an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area and a small lounge with TV and DVD selection for guests' enjoyment. The furnishings are comfortable and the ambiance is cosy and inviting. Please note that as this is an enviro-friendly house there are no baths, only showers, and as such there is no swimming pool. All lighting throughout the house is low-energy.
There is extensive outdoor lighting outside the cottage, some of it movement activated, and the house is secured with beams and an alarm system which is connected to a local armed-response security company. Smoking is permitted outdoors only.White River is a small town, known for its easy climate and beautiful countryside.
