“Mountain splendour”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
people found this review helpful

Set in a nature reserve with spectacular views of Cathkin peak and Champagne Castle, Dragon's Mist is a gem for anyone seeking some relaxing time away from the hustle of the working day. Watch zebra doing what zebras do from the patio, enjoy the birdlife ( a pair of familiar chats are resident, as well as sunbirds) and just relax. Less than five minutes away from the hotel resorts of Monk's Cowl, with a restaurant , golf, and putt -putt, and the Champagne sports resort with an excellent golf course, there is plenty for the sports lover. Nearby are other attractions; reptile park, bird park, local crafts and honey farm, as well as horse riding, (I can recommend Ushaka Horse Trails.) quad biking, river rafting, canopy tours and more.
Dragon's Mist as an accommodation venue is only to be recommended. My well-travelled 16 year old assured me it is the best place he has stayed at. The house is very tastefully decorated, and extremely well equipped, with all mod-cons (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc.) as well as a secure double garage. My only regret was that our visit was short, I would gladly have stayed longer than four days.

Liked best: Everything (this from a person who NEVER gives a full mark rating.)
Liked least: The lighting in the living area is s bit dim. (For people my age this is a slight problem, but only if you are playing games at the dining table. Reading in the sitting room is fine.)
