About Klipfontein Cottage

Klipfontein is an extensive cattle ranch of typical African rolling savannah hills against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is the perfect stop over for weary travellers. The farm is ideally placed for a quick exit from the N3 National Highway, near Estcourt. Our farm entrance is only 1 km from an N3 interchange. We are also midway between Johannesburg and the Natal coastal resorts. We are situated a few km north of Estcourt Shell Ultra City Petrol stop on the N3 highway and 20 km from Winterton.

Klipfontein Cottage provides an ideal place for visits to any of the major Drakensberg Mountain resorts such as Mont-aux-sources, Cathedral Peak, Champagne Castle and the Champagne Valley offers a variety of attractions such as visits to the Falcon Display Centre, Drakensberg Boys Choir School, Berg flights. Giants Castle Nature Reserve with its historic Bushmen paintings and caves has much to offer.

Weenen Game Reserve and Spionkop game Reserve are about 30 minute drive away. Amongst other game species such as kudu, zebra, giraff, wildebeest, blesbok, worthog etcetera, white and black rhino can also be seen. Horse riding amongst the game is offered at Spion kop Game Reserve.

Boer war battle sites are close by such as Churchill's armoured car de-railment site and the battles of Spionkop and Colenso.

The cottage is private and set in its own garden. Security is of a high standard as the cottage and its garden are part of the farm homestead complex and are enclosed with a perimeter electric fence and gate. The cottage sleeps two adults, there is a double queen-size bed and a single bed in two interleading rooms with TV, en-suite bathroom has shower, basin and toilet. A kitchenette has a small fridge, kettle with tea, coffee, toaster, microwave/conventional oven crockery and cutlery and a sink.

Supper may be arranged at an additional cost of R60. If you want to braai/barbeque, it will be provided on request.

Giving a five star seems to be a bit unfair, however they do not allow us to put more. The cottage is excellent and the host as good. It is just off the main road and a must if you want quiet and rest. Leonora will take care of your needs.

We stayed overnight at Klipfontein Cottage and had a wonderful time. Mrs Winter was friendly and helpful and gave us a delicious breakfast! What a charming cottage, prettily decorated and very well-thought-out. Every need catered for. I would strongly recommend this cottage as a stayover along the N3 route.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The host made sure that everything we needed was available, and then some. It certainly exceeded our expectations. A peaceful place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Well done!

We really loved our two-day stay in the Klipfontein Cottage. It is situated in a large tranquil garden. The cottage itself is well equipped, although there are no cooking facilities. It is very well maintained. Lenore, the host, can also prepare a tasty dinner for her guests.
