“Peaceful Weekend Away”
4 of 5 stars

Reviewed 1 September 2014
We stayed at Acorn Cottages in August 2014. There were 6 of us, my family and another couple with their son. We stayed in the self catering cottages. These were basic but comfortable. The property is very quiet and nicely maintained. Herman was very helpful and accommodating. Acorn Cottages is central to most of the attraction in the Drakensburg. - Candice V
