Surrounded by the beautiful mountains of the Northern Drakensberg, Ledges Retreat offers you both a peaceful space to unwind as well as a convenient base from which to explore all that this area has to offer.
We offer self-catering as well as bed and breakfast accommodation. The resort is under new ownership, and we have recently renovated our self-catering Farmhouse as well as 3 of our 4 B&B rooms so guests can enjoy a comfortable, relaxing break in scenic surroundings.
Our 4th B&B room is our cosy rondawel that we love just as it is!
In Room Facilities:
Each room/unit is equipped with a refrigerator, TV and tea/coffee facilities as well as a bathroom en-suite. Rooms are serviced daily and a laundry service is available for a small fee. Each room also has a wardrobe so there is plenty of storage space, as well as a heater for the cold winter months. All linen and towels are provided (except swimming towels) as well as soap. Every room/unit has either a garden or a mountain view.
We are located in the Okhahlamba World Heritage site, close to the Royal Natal National Park which is only 12kms away (15mins by car). The closest towns to us are Harrismith (50kms) and Bergville (34kms) for fuel, shops, pharmacy etc.
If you are self catering, please remember to bring all your groceries as there are no shops nearby. We also do not have a liquor license so remember to bring your own alcohol.
Ledges Retreat has a seasonal outdoor swimming pool as well as a trampoline, swings and a games room (pool table, darts, table tennis, fingerboard). We also have a small library if you would like to borrow a book or two.
As well as breakfast, we are also able to provide dinner for guests, however we do need advance notice. Should you require dinner on the evening of your arrival, please let us know by 11am on the day of your arrival so that we have time to prepare a meal for you. Dinner is R200 per person (kids under 10 pay half) and if you book for breakfast ad hoc the cost is R75 per person (kids under 10 pay half). Dinner and breakfast is served in our dining room and is a buffet-style meal.
Guests are also welcome to make use of the BBQ facilities next to the pool and have our chef prepare their side dishes.
The Putterill River meanders along the bottom of the property and is a children’s paradise with plenty of rock pools to splash around in – you may even spot an eland or two!
Nearby attractions include the Amphitheatre 9-hole golf course, All Out Adventures (5kms) and Royal Natal National Park (12kms) for hiking and fishing. There is also a newly built super-tube at Hlalanathi (7kms from us) for summer-time fun! Outrides can be booked at the Northern Horse at Montusi (approx 7kms from us). Please enquire for more details.
On the culinary side, we are 8kms from the Tower of Pizza, and 7kms away from the Oak and Ale Pub and Restaurant (big screen TV!). For mountain bikers, over 150kms of challenging trails are right on our doorstep, and of course there is plenty of space to just walk!
