About Ledges Retreat

Ledges Retreat offers affordable self-catering and bed and breakfast accommodation in renovated units. We are situated in a peaceful and picturesque valley in the Northern Drakensberg, surrounded by beautiful mountains, with stunning views of Sungubala, Hlolela and Sugar Loaf. We are only 12kms away from the Royal Natal National Park, home of the Drakensberg Amphitheatre and Tugela Falls.

All Out Adventures is down the road from us, and is a great day out for the family. They offer a zip line, bungee bounce, quad biking, kids’ zone, coffee shop and more! Tower of Pizza is 8kms away for great pizzas, and the Oak and Ale Pub and Restaurant at Hlalanathi (7kms) has a cozy pub and big screen for sports!

You can also play a round of golf at Amphitheatre Golf Course at Hlalanathi, or zip down their newly built super-tube in the summer time!

Out-rides can be booked at the Northern Horse Stables at Montusi, and if you are a keen mountain biker, we are surrounded by 150kms of world class mountain biking trails. And of course, if you prefer you can simply walk along the numerous trails that surround us and enjoy the fresh air and soul-restoring beauty of the countryside.

Please note: As well as breakfast, we can also provide dinner, however advance notice is required. If you would like dinner on your day of arrival, please let us know by 11am on the day you arrive so that we can prepare.

We also have BBQ facilities at the pool that guests are welcome to make use of, and our chef can assist in preparing side dishes.

Family friendly: We have a swimming pool, trampoline and swings and children are allowed in all our units. We can also provide a baby cot and baby bath if needed.
