Hansel & Gretel Cottages
Situated just 1km from the main hotel, are the twin darlings of the Walkersons estate, the Hansel and Gretel Cottages. Each of these four star self-catering cottages feature two spacious en-suite bedrooms, one double and one twin, and a vast living area consisting of a kitchen, cosy lounge, and an open plan dining room.
Added extras include a covered veranda for those balmy summer nights, braai facilities, and a snug fireplace to keep back the winter chills. Ideal for two couples, or a small family, both Hansel and Gretel sleep up to 4 people in one queen, and two twin beds.
Walkersons’ only 5-star self-catering option, the luxurious Riverview Cottage presents sweeping views across the entire estate. An expansive double story unit, it boasts 4 en-suite bedrooms, and a beautifully furnished open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room.
Moving outdoors, a fully-equipped braai area is on hand to prepare the perfect South African feast, while a spacious upstairs balcony is the perfect spot from which to enjoy a magnificent sunset or sunrise. As the name suggests, the cottage overlooks the scenic Lunsklip River, which gently winds its way through the estate.
The largest of Walkersons’ self-catering establishments, the Canyon Cottage is nestled in a leafy corner of the vast estate, providing much needed privacy and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Five large en-suite bedrooms accommodate up to 10 guests in homely comfort, while a fully-equipped open plan kitchen and dining area is on hand to make your stay as convenient as possible. Many a night in will be spent clustered around a roaring fire in the central living area, and many a day will be spent lounging on the veranda, which overlooks Canyon’s very own private dam. Additional facilities to complete the package include an outside braai, DSTV, a flat-screen TV, and clean linen.
The latest member of Walkersons’ vast range of self-catering cottages is the 6-sleeper Hillside Cottage. Overlooking some of the best scenery of the estate, this 3-bedroom unit boasts a fully-equipped kitchen and a spacious lounge complete with a cosy fireplace. Other handy facilities include an outside braai area and boma, DSTV, a DVD player, and sufficient towels and linen. While seclusion is often eagerly sought after, guests at each of the self-catering cottages are free to make use of all the Walkersons Hotel facilities, including the gym, spa, and both the Terrace and restaurant. Children, who are more than welcome in the self-catering cottages, will have their hands full with a range of activities such as fly-fishing, horse riding, hiking trails and mountain biking.
