Van Reenen Cottages, The farm cottage can accommodate between six and eight people in three bedrooms. One bedroom has a fully en-suite bathroom and there are another 2.5 bathrooms in the cottage. Guests who come with children can let their young ones run free and have fun in the play room, while they cosy up by the open log fireplace during those cold winters, or enjoy a delectable spit braai prepared at the barbeque area on the outside patio.

The small town of Van Reenan has a long history steeped in the South African War. Van Reenan’s Pass is on the national road between the cities of Johannesburg and Durban, making the town a perfect destination to rest during your road trip. Take time to explore the escarpment and wonder at the majesty of the Drakensberg Mountains. Lying at the bottom of van Reenan’s Pass is the Black Wildebeest Hiking Trail, a two to three day backpackers trail filled with adventure. The vast expanse of Spioenskop Dam lies by the edge of the Drakensberg Escarpment and Spioenkop Dam Nature Reserve is a 33.5 kilometre drive from Van Reenan. This is a great getaway for water sport enthusiasts. Explorers will also be delighted by the many Khoi-San rock art in the Drakenberg Mountains.

Strawcroft overlooks Nelson’s Kop and the Tandjesberg. From atop are the views of the Wilge River valley below. Other popular destinations nearby are Sani Pass, the town of Ladysmith with its incredible Zulu villages. There is so much experiences guests can have during their stay at Strawcroft.
