Pennygum Cottages are a fabulous base to explore the Southern Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. Our 4 cottages are set in beautiful gardens and apple orchards in 10 acres of land with stunning views of the berg from each cottage. The cottages are well equipped for self catering - our African Dreams is a thatched rondavel 'honeymoon cottage' which sleeps 2-4, our Lavender Cottage sleeps 4 and 2 children, Apple sleeps 6-8 and our Family Cottage set in its own garden with a private drive sleeps 10. All have braai areas and sitting out areas. Most cottages have fireplaces for cold winter nights and also all have DVD players with complementary DVDs. There is a splash pool in Summer and also rafting and tubing on site in season. There is a small children's play area and daily maid service.

My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. The location of Pennygum Country Cottages is so peaceful and units are surrounded by beautiful gardens with fresh flowers. Our unit was spacious and very clean, not to mention the warm welcome from Lungi. Just to add, I also liked the alternatives that are provided in case load shedding strikes. I have already recommended the place to my extended family and friends.

This was the ideal getaway , away from daily routines, being stuck in front of a TV in the middle of the world cup, to bond and create long lasting memories amongst close friends, some of whom we hadn't seen in 5 years.

A very comfortable stay, with amazing views. Pierre is a very thoughtful and helpful host - helping with detailed directions on the road less travelled to our next destination, and even checking that we had arrived safely! Above and beyond, thank you!

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
