Self-Catering Cottages

Set in the heart of the Blue Crane nature reserve on which Brahman Hills is located, our self-catering cottages are the perfect mix of modern comfort with rustic charm.

Designed to be your home away from home, each cottage is comfortably appointed with a lounge and dining area, full DSTV and a cozy fireplace to cuddle up in front of on cold winter nights. During the summer months, cool off in the outdoor jacuzzi or take advantage of the longer days and enjoy an al fresco meal overlooking the hills on your own private deck.

Fully-equipped and serviced every day, we’ll take care of everything from making the beds to washing the dishes…we’ll even send your personal chef over so you can relax to your heart’s content. After all, we think you deserve a break every now and then, even if you are self-catering.

Quick and easy private access to the hotel also makes the cottages incredibly convenient for wedding or conference accommodation too.

Guest Comments: 

November 2017: "Our stay was one of those experiences that are a complete surprise in the best way possible.  We had booked to stay over for a wedding for 2 nights and were not expecting too much in line with other self catering cottages in the area.  The cottage was superbly kitted out, with a jacuzzi that we spent an abnormal amount of time enjoying as every time we too a dip there was another kind of animal strolled past to keep us company.  A quick walk to the Spa (which was the most amazing experience) and then a variety of food to choose from in the Barn.  We ended up going home with full cooler boxes.  Highly recommended and we will be back for a longer stay to enjoy the KZN Midlands".
