Francolin Cottage

Francolin Self Catering Cottage is named after the delightful grey-wing francolin, a small ground-nesting game bird  found in the areas around the cottage. Built on a ridge with views over the valley to the Maluti Mountains in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho beyond, the beautiful barn style cottage takes just two people in great luxury and solitude.

High wooden beamed ceilings frame the interior with fully equipped kitchen, lounge with comfy chairs and combustion wood burning fire, king size bed with beautiful percale linen and heated blankets for chilly weather, bath with enclosed shower and toilet. There is a weber braai on the covered veranda and ample parking behind the cottage. WiFi is available at the reception area at Dassie House.
