Bela-Bela Accommodation

Weaverbird Cottage - Self Catering Accommodation in Bela-Bela

Weaverbird Cottage is located in the Leopard's Rock Country Estate, a fenced and secure residential estate that lies off the R101 between Bela-Bela (Warmbaths) and Modimolle (Nylstroom) in the malaria-free Waterberg region of Limpopo. The estate is an easy 90- minute drive north of Pretoria and is 16 kilometres north of Bela-Bela.

Recently renovated, the cottage is fully equipped for a self-catering holiday and can sleep four people comfortably in two bedrooms (1 twin/1 double), and a child or small adult on the ample chaise lounge. The main bedroom is large enough to also comfortably fit a travel cot if you have a baby.

There are 2 bathrooms, one ensuite, and open plan lounge/kitchen fully equipped with upright stove/oven, fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave, toaster, crockery, cookware and kitchen utensils-there is a washing machine in the detached laundry.

The lounge has comfortable sofas and a large TV connected to a DVD player. The TV does not receive TV channels. You will need to bring DVDs. There are ceiling fans in the lounge and bedrooms, fly screens on all windows and the sliding door, and a security screen at the back door. The covered front patio with outdoor tables and chairs looks out at a small unfenced tree-shaded garden, with a braai and fire pit, and wonderful views directly down to the dam.

The estate clubhouse, with swimming pool, braai facilities, and beautiful grassed and shaded areas, is set in a stunning, tropical garden overlooking a large dam, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the cottage. There are lovely walking trails criss-crossing the estate and a smaller dam in the valley, with stunning high rock faces harbouring a variety of wildlife.

The cottage is in one of the top birding spots on the estate. Impala, zebra, warthogs and other animals are seen around the estate and pay regular visits to the cottage - if you're lucky, you might also see leopard, porcupines, wild cats and genets at night and spot black eagles in the valley at the bottom of the estate.
