Self Catering Cottages at Walkerson’s Hotel & Spa

You’ve decided to take a break from city life and visit Dullstroom with your family – an excellent idea. Dullstroom is beautiful at this time of year – the weather is mild to warm – perfect for hiking and spending days lounging beside the pool at Walkersons Hotel & Spa.

Our hotel is set on a gorgeous estate and boasts an old-world luxury feel that keeps families coming back year after year. If you’re looking for family accommodation in Dullstroom, look no further than our four fully-furnished self-catering cottages – Waterfall House, Hillside Cottage, Hansel Cottage and Gretel Cottage. Their names alone should tell you what we offer – secluded countryside bliss.

The cottages have anything from two to five bedrooms, depending on the size of your family. Each has an outdoor braai area where you can enjoy the gorgeous spring weather. A bonus: All laundry gets done by the hotel, so chores are not on your horizon. Simply arrive, unpack and start exploring the gorgeous green world around you.

Family-friendly activities on the estate include fishing, hiking, picnicking and strolling along the river, which the little ones love! They’ll have plenty of space to run around on the large lawns and be ready to pass out at bedtime.

Staying in our self-catering cottages enables you to set the pace. The idyllic surrounding countryside has often been compared to the Scottish Highlands, and we aim to deliver the same hearty hospitality to our guests. The best part? Walkersons is only a three-hour drive from Johannesburg! Now you know where you’re headed for that next long weekend.
