The Artists Cottage in Sutherland

The Artist's Cottage is situated in the centre of the little town called Sutherland. The cottage is a typical Karoo-style building, but it has been renovated with modern flare without losing its authentic feel.

Sutherland is situated in the Northern Cape, just a stone's throw from the Western Cape's border, and is known for its clear skies, stars and its cold temperatures in winters, which can drop to below zero and snows occasionally. The town is also steeped in South African history, endemic succulents and amazing architecture.

Sutherland is home to SALT, the Southern African Large Telescope, which is the second largest optical telescope in the world. The town itself is quaint and quiet, but there is more to it than just visiting the observatory. The Artist's Cottage is ideal for that weekend away from the city, and spending some quality time with family.

The house contains two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, and comfortably sleeps four. Downstairs has a bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom. An open-plan dining area, kitchen and big fireplace, built in the old-fashioned way and is big enough to climb into and sit next to the fire, is available. The kitchen has a fridge, a small gas stove, a microwave, and all cutlery and crockery that you may need. Upstairs is a loft bedroom, which is accessible via stairs inside the house or outside of the house. The room has a modern open-plan bathroom with a loose standing Victorian bath, a separate toilet and enough space to sit and read.

"Great stay!"

I was looking for a place near Salt which was not a guest house but accomodated 4 adults and 4 children. This was difficult to find and not wanting to travel far to the Observatory I found the "Digtersuis". A bit concerned that it would be to cramped, I am happy to note that it was perfect. The upstairs is very big and more then enough space for 2 x extra blow up mattresses for the kids. There are 2 bathrooms with 2 toilets which otherwise would not have worked. For the cost for the weekend it was absolutely worth it. Our hostess Jolene was very accommodating and helpful and even though it only supposedly accommodates 4 people there is more then enough cutlery and crockery to go around. I will definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a "holiday house" for 2 families with smaller children.(Note there are stairs) Next time will definitely bring bikes. "Digtershuis" also very clean with firewood, electric blankets, lovely clean towels and bedding provided. Thanks for a great weekend!
