"The video we made of Penwarn is a gift for the excellent hospitality we enjoyed. It is really a lovely place."


Penwarn Country Lodge is a country retreat just outside Underberg in the foothills of Southern Drakensberg of South Africa, that is part of the Ukhahlamba World Heritage site.

Penwarn lies in a beautiful valley traversed by two rivers and forms part of our Waterford Farm operations to which guests also have access. There is much to be seen and enjoyed, be it on Penwarn or on Waterford.  

The Penwarn/Waterford Estate is a 3800 hectare spread bordering the Ukhahlamba World Heritage Site. A variety of game including zebra, wildebeest and other antelope roam free across the hillsides and plains, while the blue heights of the Drakensberg rise up to the west.
