Swallows Nest B&B

Winterton, Drakensberg - Accommodation

Swallows Nest B&B rating


Swallows nest B&B is the perfect Winterton accommodation, combining the elements of a min-vacation with the nostalgia of being in your own home. Set in the small village of Winterton in Kwa-Zulu Natal on the foothills of the Drakensberg, it is the picture of an intimate escape that leaves you with the feeling of "home away from home''.

Surrounded by an acre of gardens, the guest house has 6 en-suite bedrooms with twin/double or family options. There are fresh linen and towels in the rooms and each room comes with a small fridge and microwave. And just like you would in the comfort of your own home, tea and coffee are served along with a dose of friendly service. For those winter nights when the snow caps the Drakensburg Mountain an electric blanket will be provided. The homely reception area enjoys free Wi-Fi for its guests to use. The 22 channel DSTV Bouquet means you never have to miss out on your favourite shows while you're enjoying your Winterton Guest house experience. There are brain facilities to make sure that you and the family bond over braai vleis and kebabs.

Unlike the typical B&B in Winterton, Swallows nest B&B chooses comfort over luxury, value of costs and quality over quantity. It is therefore the holiday for the tired house wife who wants to enjoy some quiet from the kids or the business man who has to drive all the way to Durban for a business trip.

Nothing about Swallows Nest is overt but it is an understated nest of peace and serenity, just like the name implies. It is a haven of simplicity, comfort but also value for your money. With the Drakensbrg rich history, there are also plenty of sites to explore and things to do within a short distance from this Winterton accommodation such as Drakensbrg hot air ballooning, visiting Game drives and fishing. For those who feel like they haven't really left home, they can visit the eateries and shopping complexes around like Black Scabbard Bistro, Valley bakery and Kwa-Zulu Natal weaver's and waffle hut.
