“Amazing Luxury Mountain Property!”
Reviewed 21 February 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Located in a basin of mountains one disappears from the world. A really nice and quiet spot tucked behind its nice and beautiful garden. A wonderful guesthouse with all the amenities you need. Loved it here because it is quiet, peaceful, and private, yet with only a short drive to area attractions. Very good value and I highly recommend it.

“Splendid and tranquil”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My family and I had such a wonderful stay at Cathkin House during the winter school holidays. The house is well equipped and is the perfect place to be in the cold Drakensberg. The estate is secure and wonderfully located with incredible views of Izintaba Zokhahlamba (Drakensberg mountains). Looking forward to going back soon!

“A haven of tranquillity and style surrounded by stunning scenery”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My family and I spent a weekend at Cathkin House at the end of June and what a truly pleasurable experience it was!

Beautifully situated in a private eco-estate, Cathkin House, although unassuming from the outside, opens up into a large and spacious accommodation with absolutely amazing views offered through each window and door.

The bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas are immaculate and tastefully fitted out with high class furnishings, all the while maintaining a ‘home-away-from-home’ feel. It is obvious that a lot of love has gone into the design and setting up of this home.

The kitchen and utility room contained more than your everyday kitchen/tableware and a lovely Victoria sponge and shortbread were produced from the oven for an impromptu birthday party.

There was a fabulous wood burner in the lounge that we didn't need to use in the end as it turned out to be an unseasonably warm weekend, but the under floor heating was very much appreciated in the chilly mornings.

The extensive DVD library was a nice touch and a welcome surprise for the kids who were worn out from a hike up the hill (felt like a mountain!) just up the road.

We did struggle with some of the electronic equipment (they were far too advanced!), but Marc was just at the other end of an email and couldn't do enough to help and ensure that we were happy.

The jacuzzi was a special experience by itself (when the water eventually warmed up), seeing the stars and even part of the milky way while being surrounding by the inky darkness of the mountains was idyllic.

The only disappointment for us was, and it was hard to think of one, despite seeing plenty of evidence in the surrounding fields, we didn’t actually see any animals roaming the grounds.. next time, definitely next time!

“A beautiful place to relax and admire nature”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Set in the majestic area of the Drakensberg this house is located in a well protected estate. With regular visits from animals and birds, due to a pond in front of the house, there is always something to keep you entertained. And to top it all off, the sunsets behind the Drakensberg mountain range are breath taking.

If you are a keen golfer then Champagne Sports Resort is a mere 5 minutes away.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and look forward to going there again.
