Acorn Cottages is conveniently, if a bit remotely located in the Champagne Valley outside Winterton. The owner Nikki provides detailed information on how to reach the cottage and is also very helpful in suggesting activities in the area.
From the cottages, easy drives are possible to the Champagne Castle Hotel grounds, which offers great views into the Drakensberg mountains, and to the nearby location for the Drakensberg Boys' Choir School and their presentations, but inquire for performance times. Another interesting drive takes you to the Giants Castle with a short hike and then a guided walk to caves with original San bushmen paintings.
The cottage itself is comfortable, attractively set on a higher ground with views into the surrounting landscape and mountains. Nikki serves a good breakfast with cereals, yoghurt, eggs and bacon, fruits, toast and jams. Overall a pleasant experience.
