About Champagne Cottages

Champagne Cottages is a small family-owned resort situated alongside the beautiful Bell Park Dam in the magnificent mountainous region of the Central Drakensberg. The Central Berg is part of the Okhahlamba region and is one of South Africa’s World Heritage Sites.

All the cottages are fully equipped for self-catering and linen is provided, although towels are not supplied. The units features fireplaces, TVs with DSTV, as well as covered verandahs with barbecue facilities. The cottages are also serviced daily, with the exception of public holidays.

A tarred road extends to our front gate and provides easy access to the many amenities in the area which include hotels, restaurants, golf courses and a variety of outdoor activities, all within an eight to 15-minute drive. The resort, a two-hour drive from Durban and a four-hour drive from Johannesburg, is ideal for a weekend getaway. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday venue, we offer comfortable value-for-money accommodation.

I would just like to thank Champagne Cottages for being so kind and caring especially to my Dad. when we got there the Friday it was freezing and because it was late and it its not the winter season they did not have wood logs on hand for the fire place but they went all out for my dad and got us a gas heater. I am forever grateful!

Very cozy and homely. A lovely kitty kept us company with lovable purrs and warmth.

While the accommodation was a lot more basic than we expected it was still very comfortable and homey. The mattresses on the beds were pretty sad and after 10 days our backs were killing us. The photos on the website were also somewhat misleading and really need to include the view - which the eagle lodge was missing due to the thick - we assume - planted wind break. We fell in love with your delightful flat faced kitty who moved in with us for the period. Just wish we could have taken her home.
