Accommodation near Winterton at Spionkop Lodge in the KZN Battlefields area. Self-Catering and Fully Inclusive Rates

Situated between Ladysmith and Winterton, against the backdrop of the majestic Drakensburg Mountains, on the Kwa-Zulu Natal Battlefields route, is Spionkop Lodge.

Spionkop was the scene of one of the bloodiest and perhaps most futile battles fought during the South African war of 1899-1902. This theatre of war was to bring together three significant characters, namely, Winston Churchill, Louis Botha and Mahatma Ghandi.  As the farm is of great historical significance, we specialise in trips to the Battlefields, where you will re-live the events of that fateful battle.

Spionkop Lodge comprises the original homestead with well-appointed, full en-suite guest rooms, each with its own verandah looking onto the gardens. The main building houses a small library, lounge with fire place and a sunroom.

In addition, there are two private, self-catering cottages with fire places which sleeper 4 and 5 guests per cottage respectively.  The larger cottage, Acacia has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a small single bedroom.  Aloe cottage is ideal for a family of four, with one double bedrom and a smaller twin bedded room. Both cottages have braai facilities. Visitors may choose the self-catering option or the fully inclusive rate.

The original barn built in 1890, has been converted into a receptions area dining room and cosy pub.  Added to this, is a small but well equipped Conference Room.

Experience the ultimate in relaxation and tranquillity at Spionkop Lodge, lazing at the pool side, watching spectacular sunsets or curled up with a good book on the deck. There is a water hole in front of the deck where one can see view prolific birdlife and amazing birds over the famous Spionkop Battlefield.

Due to the diversity of activities which we offer, our guests generally stay three or four nights, arriving as guests and leaving as friends!
