General Info


At Pennygum we are thrilled to have been nominated for a Lilizela Tourism Award for service excellence for 2 years now: 2013 and 2014! <p> We were commended for excellence, for making an exceptional contribultion to the industry, investing in skill provision and leading by example as an accomodation service provider in KZN. This is great news for us and our staff.

In Room:

Our four cottages are perfectly equipped for self-catering. All cottages are serviced most days and some have electric blankets in Winter. The owners Paul and Sarah Cooper live on site to give you their personal attention. We speak English, Welsh and French.


Why not take a walk in the orchards or hire our rafts or tubes in season – or just enjoy the views and peace and quiet for that well earned rest. <p> We can arrange guided tours of the National Park, fly fishing, horse riding, golf, Sani Pass tours to Lesotho, explore local history, scenic hiking trails, squash, mountain biking, guided rock art trips as well as our own exciting river rafting adventures and tubing at Pennygum. We are able to offer personal itineraries and service for our guests.
