We stayed at Pennygum Cottages for three lovely nights. Our hosts, Pierre and Jackie (and their dogs), warmly welcomed us. Since the guest in our booked cottage, Hlogoma, had left late, we were upgraded free of charge to a larger cottage. Lungi and Goodness made sure everything was clean and organised for our stay. Each cottage is positioned so that they all have privacy and views of the sunset and mountains. The cottage is comfortable, spacious and like a home, not a hotel. Proper mattresses, electric blankets and a well appointed kitchen are just a few of the quality amenities. Our first night's firewood, fresh milk and freshly ground coffee were on the house. Pennygum cottages are just on the outskirts of Underberg and close to good restaurants and en route to the Drakensberg Gardens. A short walk down the servitude takes one to the Mzimkhulu River where one can enjoy a leisurely stroll and do some Birding. Pierre has lived in Underberg for many years and very generously shared his knowledge of area highlights and offered excellent advice that helped make the most of our visit. We'll definitely be back in Underberg and we'll most certainly be staying at Pennygum Cottages again.…
We absolutely loved pur stay at Penny Gum. Clean, comfortable rooms with tasteful decor referencing area. Personal touches like farm fresh milk in fridge, good coffee and rusks. Close to hikes and other activities. Beautiful walks in the immediate area. Family run with great hosts and friendly staff. Looking forward to coming back in winter to enjoy the fire place. Perfect for families or a group of friends. Highly recommended
The cottage was lovely. Friendly service, clean and overall a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of city life. We truly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely come again. We loved it a lot.
A lovely relaxing stay in this cosy and welcoming setting. Pierre and Jaqueline were fabulous hosts and very flexible with our needs for a quick weekend away. Highly recommended. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Good comfortable and spacious accomodation ... rooms were a little cramped with all our cycling kit and baggage . Nice setting and relaxing surrounds . Pity we could only stay for 1 short night , rushing around getting ready for the mtb race .
Comfortable accommodation with splendid views of the Drakensberg. Ideal base for exploring with river and country trails on doorstep. Great cycling country. Some wonderful restaurants / coffee stops close by. Pet friendly. Charming hosts.
We had a lovely weekend at Pennygum Cottages close to Underberg. Lovely views and baeutiful lawns for kids to run around. Great trails for raunning and cycling close by. Very friendly and accommodating hosts. We stayed in Lavender cottages which is perfect for 4 people, but tight if you try to fit 5.
Lovely stay, beautiful guesthouse, excellent staff. Chill and relax in this cottage. Central to the Underberg and other areas. Very very beautiful surrounding area, lovely little shops and restaurants
Thank you so much Pierre and Jackie. Excelent value, super smart and affordable. A beautiful, clean and warm cottage. The staff was excellent and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. We will see you soon. Kevin and Sone
The new owners have truly created an amazing and relaxing experience once you step on to their Pennygum grounds. Beautiful views, lots of space to relax and do morning yoga, hiking and bike trails are just around the corner - the perfect weekend or holiday get away.
