Mallard Cottage

White River, Bed and Breakfast


Mallard Cottage


Come and relax in the tranquil surroundings of the luxurious, fully self-contained Mallard Cottage set in the beautiful, secure Waterberry Country Estate. Watch the zebras, blesbok, impala and mongoose playing in the veld. Wake up to the calls of some of the 160 plus species of birds. With the big dam less than 100 m away you can spot the African Jacana, White Faced ducks, and lots of other water birds.

* The Cottage:

The cottage has two beautifully appointed bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other has twin beds, all with crisp white linen on deep mattresses. Both bedrooms have a sitting area and large bathrooms; each with its own shower and bath.

Between the two bedrooms is the comfortably furnished lounge, with open plan, fully equipped kitchen, complete with fridge/freezer, large gas stove, microwave oven, kettle, toaster and Weber braai (barbeque).

Off the lounge is the covered patio where, on a sultry summer evening, you can relax enjoying a drink or a leisurely meal while watching the birdlife in your private area of the garden and around the dam. On a crisp winter evening snuggle up in the comfort of a log fire and watch PVR DStv or a DVD of your choice.

* Dilly`s Suite:

Dilly`s Suite is a large double bedroom with sitting area inside and private patio outside. It has also has a large bathroom with a shower plus a bath which overlooks the garden and dam.

Its in a separate wing of the main house and has its own private entrance. Dilly`s also has PVR DStv. For your convenience there is a fridge/freezer, microwave oven, kettle, toaster and braai.

The cottage and suite both have mini bars (cold drinks, chips, chocolate etc) and are cleaned and serviced every day. Tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk, rusks, biscuits, fruit and sweets are provided with our compliments. For your comfort, and for those who follow, all the rooms are non-smoking.

There are a number of excellent and good value restaurants nearby, plus theatres and cinemas all of which we would be happy to book for you. Airport transfers and day trips to any of the local attractions can also be arranged.
