Description

Bridal Drift Cottage is situated on the banks of the Tugela River, on a dairy farm, approximately 6 km from Colenso. Colenso is centrally located between Winterton, Ladysmith and Estcourt, and is easily accessible from the N3 highway.

Comfortable self-catering accommodation is offered in a quaint double-storey log cabin with a view of the Tugela River. The cottage comprises 2 bedrooms, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs, with 2 single beds in each. There is 1 bathroom with a shower, toilet, bath and basin. The bathroom is located in the upstairs bedroom, and there is a toilet and basin in the downstairs bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with an oven and stove, a kettle and toaster, a fridge with a freezer, a microwave, a toasted sandwich maker, and cutlery and crockery. The cottage is equipped with a TV with selected DStv channels. As this is a double-storey cottage, children are welcome at parents discretion; there are no burglar bars upstairs.

Guests are welcome to walk along the river banks and around the property, or bring their own bicycles. There is an abundance of bird life, as well as many trail running and mountain bike events which take place near Winterton, Ladysmith and Estcourt. Braai facilities are available, and guests are required to bring their own charcoal and wood. The cottage will be serviced daily, and laundry can be done for guests staying for more than 2 nights at a cost of R50 per kg; this does not include underwear.

Access to the cottage is via an electric gate and guests will be given a remote with keys. The cottage is accessible via a dirt road, and small cars can manage if driven slowly. Depending on the season, there are times where there will be livestock around the cottage. The cottage is secure with an electric fence. Guests will need to collect the keys at the main farm approximately 2 km away.

It is advisable for guests to do all food shopping before reaching Colenso. The Colenso Club, approximately 10 minutes away, is the closest place to buy a meal, otherwise there are a few restaurants in the nearby towns. The central Drakensberg is approximately 40 minutes away via either a tar or dirt road. The town of Colenso was used as a base by the British Army during the Anglo-Boer War, and the location is ideal for those wishing to embark on self-guided Anglo-Boer War trips.
