What a little (not so little actually ! ) cottage, with a stunning view ! Everything you could possibly need, modern, comfortable , plus beautifully and so elegantly decorated . Close to most activities and had a lovely pool and guest area for dining overlooking the pool . Highly recommend

We really had such a lovely, peaceful time. The cottage was spotless and so comfy. Great view. And we also appreciated the friendly and warm hospitality we received throughout our stay from Ernest and Michelle. Just a pity that we couldn't stay longer to experience the snow! We will definitely stay over again. Ernest and Michelle are such gems. We...

It's always a struggle to find nice pet-friendly accommodation so River Crossing was a great discovery! The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The setting is perfect with great views and walking trails. Our spaniels loved it! The accommodation itself was nice however the space has been used as a B&B on the occasion and so there were no comfy...

We were greeted by the hosts on arrival and they explained local attractions with a map. Cottage was clean and had all the necessities and more. Breakfast was very good as well. The hosts were extremely friendly and advised us on the rest of our plans for the trip. Could not ask for more!

The self catering accommodation was spacious and from the outdoor area, where there was a large table, chairs and a brai, we had an uninterrupted view across beautiful countryside to the majestic Drakensburg and Champagne Castle. The accommodation was well appointed but a few things niggled like, having air conditioning in only one of the two bedrooms and poor provision...

We heartily recommend River Crossing. The view is excellent. The kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom are spacious and well appointed. You have to go a long way to find accommodation this good in California, USA where we live and is a mecca for USA vacationers. And certainly not at the price. The breakfast was also excellent.
