About River Cottages
River Cottages offers both recreational and overnight accommodation in a riverside environment.
There are three fully equipped self-catering houses sleeping up to 12 guests per house as well as seven 2-Sleeper self-catering units and two 4-Sleeper units. The houses are located right on the banks of the Vaal River in Parys whilst the 2-sleeper units are 200 m away from the river but still a mere 2 minutes stroll to the river. There are swimming pools, lapas and built in braai facilities spread all over the property for those hot, lazy summer days.
The location is also suitable for functions and special occasions as the property is very large and picturesque and we have function/conference/restaurant facilities on site. River Cottages can host groups for bachelor/ettes, bikers and other club functions, team building etc.
The little country town of Parys lies on the banks of the Vaal River about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and an hour and a half from Pretoria. Parys is essentially a farming community, but it has become a popular recreation town due to loads of outdoor activities on offer, the Vaal River and because of its proximity to Johannesburg, Pretoria and other major cities.
The Vaal River runs for about 1 km through our property and its banks are lined with weeping willows and reeds and is the perfect invitation for those fond of water-related activities such as fishing, canoeing, river rafting etc. There are some lovely hiking and 4X4 trails in and around the town, as well as art, antique and coffee shops as well as a wide range of excellent restaurants.
River Cottages looks forward to sharing our paradise with you.
