What a perfect spot for a peaceful family getaway. Rustic but well appointed self catering cottages with a view that is unsurpassed. Hosts Chantal and Vaughn were great. What a great time. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We loved our wee cottage ( esp that it had no TV) and highly recommend the dinner and breakfast option . Really delicious home cooked food delivered...

Although the drive up to Berghouse is not the easiest, it was worth it - undoubtedly the greatest accommodation of our South Africa trip. The cottage was beautifully decorated, had a great view and both breakfast and dinner (served on our private patio) was delicious. We only regret that we couldn't stay longer than two nights.

Great pleasure hosting you for the couple of nights. Thank you for visiting, as well as your kind review!.

Berg House cottages is an absolute oasis in the mountains. Nestled in the hillside 3 km from the main road, it is private, quiet and the scenery is breathtaking. The cottages are reminiscent of hobbit land in their quaintness. Everything is beautifully maintained, very clean, and the kitchen is well equipped for self catering. Our unit had both indoor and...

A great place to be with the fabulous view of the Amphitheatre in the background and entertaining ponies in front of the cottages. Cottages are well placed giving one a good deal of privacy but with a sense of space.

The estate is within easy reach of numerous scenic attractions like the Royal National Park, the Amphitheatre access from Witsieshoek and the spectacular Sterkfontein dam. A...
