Otters Den Self Catering

From R650 PPS



Welcome to Otters Den self catering, our secluded cottages set in 18 acres of unspoilt countryside in the heart of the arts and crafts route of the Midlands Meander. Built in 2004, these well-equipped cottages overlook the Lions River near Nottingham Road in KwaZulu Natal, offering a truly peaceful and relaxing break away. We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of heaven and hope you enjoy your stay. French is also spoken.

We have 4 freestanding newly built thatched cottages: Chelsea, The Great Western, Ikhwela and Copper, each with a private balcony overlooking the Lions River. Each of our cottages are for 2 people and has an en-suite bathroom with its own jacuzzi spa bath. Every cottage also comes with a fully equipped kitchen including microwave, 2 plate stove, fridge/freezer, toaster, and weber braai. They all have dining and lounge areas, a table and chairs on the balcony as well as a queen sized double bed and private car port. For cold nights our cottages also have an electric fire and electric blanket with goose down duvets. All utensils, crockery and glasses are included and all linen and towels are supplied. Copper Cottage is our romantic open-plan honeymoon suite with its own private river view jacuzzi spa bath, situated at the foot of a queen-sized double bed.

Otters Den Self Catering runs alongside the Lions River providing beautiful views as well as the opportunity for gentle riverside walks or swimming in the crystal clear river pools. We are situated on the glorious Midlands Meander arts and crafts route, offering various local products and produce. You could also bring your bikes and ride in the scenic countryside. The local area abounds with things to see and do including trout and bass fishing, golfing within a 10 minute drive and the renowned Midmar Mile at Midmar Dam. The historic Battlefields route can be found approximately 1 hour's drive away and the well known world heritage site of the Drakensberg mountain range is also about 1 hour's drive away.
