8km from Underberg, Blackbrook Self Catering Cottages comprise 2 self catering units: Dean’s Cottage and Struan’s Cottage. Each has its own fully fenced garden, so we welcome furry family members. We are situated conveniently close to all the amenities of the Southern Drakensberg, but being on a small working farm, have the peaceful tranquility required for a relaxing break from the city rat race.
Struan’s Cottage has a separate bedroom with a king size bed (twin beds on request) and a double bunk bed in the lounge. The bathroom has a large shower and toilet. Dean’s Cottage is 40m away; the separate bedroom has a kingsize bed and 1 single (en suite – shower/toilet); an open plan kitchen living area; shower, toilet and mezzanine level (3 beds) which overlooks the living area – king size bed arranged on request. Both are stone-clad, thick-walled, thatched cottages. There are no fireplaces in the cottages because of the thatch roofs. A portable gas heater is provided in each. You may provide your own 9kg gas cylinder or pay a fee/night should you use our gas cylinder; wall heaters (bedrooms), extra blankets and hot water bottles provided. DSTV Premium available. A minimum booking rate of 2 adults applies to both cottages, while a 4 adult minimum rate applies over weekends and peak periods to Dean’s cottage.
Close by is a dam stocked with bass and trout where guests may fish for free. Fishing is strictly on a catch and release basis only.
You have everything you need in our cottages – a fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, 4 plate gas stove with oven and grill, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, etc . The cottages have granite tops, braai and outside seating areas – please bring your own wood/charcoal.
Get away to the country, be seduced by the tranquility and vistas while the wild life, with their different calls, lull you to sleep at night.
