This recently renovated farmhouse was built around 1882, and is nestled in a beautiful valley in the Swartberg area of the Drakensberg, one of the most beautiful, pristine and untouched areas of Kwa-Zulu Natal. In fact, we don't even have an official address the place is so off the grid.

There are plenty of activities to do, like hiking the stunning mountains, riding your motorbike, your bicycle, picnics, walks or trout fishing on one of the nearby dams. Stunning area to spend a weekend painting or photographing the surrounding area.

A beautiful, pristine area of the Drakensberg that remains unspoilt and just waiting for exploration on hikes and walks. A place to escape the loudness and business of life even for a short while.

You will find the abundant bird life a pleasure to view. The area is surrounded by spectacular views and stunning walks and rides. Bushman paintings etc are to be found in the area.

The cottage is clean and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen that has all you will require for your self catering holiday. Please note there are no nearby shops, so you need to ensure you bring all your requirements needed for your catering.

There is a TV for your use, if you wish to bring your own DSTV decoder or to access movies off a hard drive or computer you may bring with you.

The cottage is comfortable and welcoming. Suitable for visits in summer and winter, throughout the year. There is a fireplace in the lounge well stocked with wood for those cold winter nights. But it is important to note that even in summer there could be a few cold spells, so ensure that you are prepared for any weather changes.

My very helpful staff will come into the cottage in the mornings to do a clean up and service of the cottage.

The St Bernards Peak Mountain Lodge is 7km away from Thuli Cottage.

If you pre-book in advance, you could possibly book an evening dinner there, have a few drinks in the pub and meet some locals, or enjoy many of the activities they have available there which includes horse riding.

Pre-booking is necessary for a majority of the activities.
