Set on the banks of the mighty Tugela River, in the heart of the historic Boer War area. Located near Colenso in KZN on a dairy farm. Close to many of the Boer War grave sites. Great for anyone doing self-guided Boer War trips. Centrally located between Winterton, Ladysmith, and Estcourt. Easily accessible from the N3 freeway. A great place for bird watching a quiet place to relax. A quaint double story log cabin with a fully equipped kitchen equipped for self-catering.
Guests are welcome to walk along the river banks and around the lands or bring their own bicycles. The log cabin has an amazing view of the Tugela River. There is an abundance of birdlife, trees and a bit of wildlife. There are also many trail running and mountain bike events that happen near Winterton / Ladysmith and Estcourt.
The cottage is accessible via a dirt road, but even small cars can manage if driven slowly. Depending on the season, there are times when there will be livestock around the cottage. The cottage is securely fenced with an electric fence.
Guests will need to pick up the keys at the main farm 2km away, and after that the cottage is yours to make yourself at home. We are available via whatsapp or cell phone at any time.
As Colenso is not a very big place, it is adviseable to do your shopping for foodstuffs etc at one of the bigger centres. The Colenso Club is the closest place where one can buy a meal, otherwise there are a few restuarants in the nearby towns. The Central Drakensberg is a 35min drive away via either a tar or a dirt road.
As this is a double storey cottage, kids are welcome at the discrestion of parents, but there are no burglar bars upstairs either.
