About Esigodini Cottage
Esigodini is the Zulu name for "Place in the Valley," and it is a delightful holiday cottage nestled in its own valley just off the Drakensberg Gardens road, approximately 1 km from the hotel. About four km from the cottage, there is a convenience store which is well stocked for odds and ends. Both the hotel and Castle Burn have restaurants which offer meals to visiting guests.
The cottage is fully equipped and well-appointed with three bedrooms, a separate outside chalet with a large bedroom and bathroom. The complete unit comfortably accommodates 8 guests in the four bedrooms. The lounge in the main cottage has a feature stone fireplace and a DStv decoder is provided, but guests must bring their own smart card or newer decoder for satellite reception. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need for self-catering. The smaller cottage has a double bed and an en-suite shower bathroom. There is a braai area and a boma fire pit ideal for a relaxing night under the stars. The units are serviced and all linen is provided.
The house is situated in a large 20-acre, tree-filled garden with a small dam and stream running through the property. It is surrounded by rambling roses and lush green grass, and it has a commanding view of the Rhino Peak of the Drakensberg escarpment. The bird life is good and it’s a really lovely place to relax and unwind. There are lots of lovely walks to various pools and waterfalls.
Esigodini is a wonderfully peaceful and comfortable refuge for a relaxing getaway and the ideal base from which to explore the beauty of the Southern Drakensberg.
Please note that we do not accept one night bookings over weekends and we also only accept a three night booking over a long weekend.,
