Thel Jean Cottage

Thel Jean is a quaint stone faced cottage nestled in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg. Completely surrounded in the front by mountains and crystal clear rivers, it boasts an unhindered view of Garden Castle and Rhino Horn. The view from the garden is impressive. This setting is ideal for a romantic getaway and equally suitable for a family weekend or holiday.

Thel Jean has three large bedrooms (two en-suite). A six sleeper bunk room, a total of three bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, lounge and bar. It also has a fridge, freezer and gas stove. In total the house comfortably accommodates 12 people.

The main bedroom upstairs boasts incredible views of Garden Castle (visible from the luxury of the bed) as well as a balcony overlooking the garden and mountain-scape.

Winters are great, spent around the fire and bar area. If you are lucky you could be greeted by magnificent views of snow covered mountains.

Summers can be spent frolicking in one of the many nearby mountain pools, walks in the mountains, horse riding, golf, trout fishing, tubing, mountain biking etc.
