After 11 kms of very very rough public unmetalled road you reach a rough track to the Retreat. It is wonderfully situated on the edge of a plateau giving it uninterrupted views of the whole of the central and north Drakensberg range. Stunning.
The grounds are extensive so you can stay home and hike for miles in completely unspoiled countryside. The Retreat has a swimming pool, billiard room and spacious lounges and communal areas. There are extensive lawns, free-roaming horses It is fabulous really.
We stayed for three nights, braving the road to do some daytime touring. Breakfasts were excellent. Dinners were freshly cooked and very good indeed. Staff were 100% helpful. There was a well-stocked trust bar. And wifi worked well in hotspot areas, not in your room.

Our second visit in as many years. This is a superb family breakaway destination with breathtakingly beautiful scenery and hiking trails, good on-site facilities and fun activities for kids right through the day.
