About The Bell @ Fernwood

The Bell is situated on Fernwood, at the foothills of the majestic Cathkin Peak.Surrounded by the little berg, free roaming game and privacy of the champagne valley, it is the place to come home to.

The Bell received a minor facelift in October of 2013, and we can proudly announce that is has received a 4 stars rating from the South African Tourism Grading. We strongly believe that the unique and beautiful location is its best assets.

The Bell is a fully equipped three bedroom six-sleeper chalet, with two bathrooms and a reading room. The spacious open plan living area leads onto a cosy veranda with amazing views giving you an instant connection to berg life. The kitchen is well equipped and daily cleaning services will ease you into a relaxing mode. The Bell is privately situated and no other units are visible from the house. For cold winter nights, the Bell is equipped with a fireplace, underfloor heating in the main bedroom and bathroom and electric heaters in all the other bedrooms.

Wild antelope and birds feed on the lawn and can be seen in early mornings.

Fernwood consists of 230ha of pristine mountain property adjacent to the UNESCO Ukhalamba World Heritage Park.

The Bell is the only commercially rentable chalet in this private development. The Bell - the best of the Berg.

      It was WOW from the minute we walked in the door. Besides the magnificent views, the chalet is very comfortable and has everything you need. The underfloor heating in the bathrooms was a real treat, but having a few spare blankets would have been good as well as a knee rug or two for the lounge.A hammock or pool lounger would be great to read and admire the views.We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

      Wow, wow, wow! This was the best place that we have ever stayed at! Spectacular view of the mountains, beautiful cottage, excellent cleaning service, friendly staff. Just loved the horses and zebra that welcomed us upon arrival. The zebra came to visit our cottage every night. Will definitely be back! Kind Regards, Mr and Mrs Apsey.

      A great house with an incredible view. The location to walking trails as well as facilities couldn't be better. I rode the mountain bike trails at Cathkin Park right from the house.

      While we were only here for a weekend, this was the most outstanding place! The absolute tranquility and peace are rivaled only by the magnificent views. The accommodation was beautiful clean and modern. All facilities were throughly well-equipped. Staff were very polite. Everything about making The Bell, from making the reservation to checking out was just wonderful. Petunia was so helpful in holding the place while we got all our friends on board with the trip - we really appreciated that! I actually can’t wait to come back here! Please keep up the excellent standards. The fact that there...
