From the owner

The spacious chalet-style cottage has 3 bedrooms: a double en-suite and two twins with a shared bathroom containing bath and shower. All towels and bedding are provided. The main living area is open plan with plenty of room so that you are not getting under each other’s feet. It comprises a dining area with large 8-seater table; a kitchen with fridge-freezer, gas stove, microwave and other essential items; and a comfy sitting area with views up to Phillipskop. The sitting area has a log-burning stove for the cooler months, and the cottage is supplied with solar hot water, including electric back-up so that you never run out. There is the essential braai area on the mountain side of the cottage and a large deck on the valley side, so that you can take in the views.

We are sure that you will enjoy all that Phillipskop has to offer. Whether it is just a weekend to unwind and soak up the views, or you are staying longer to explore both the reserve and the wider area with all its attractions.
