Bergen Dam Cottage

Self-catering in Western Cape » Bredasdorp » Bredasdorp

R340 per person

Bergen Dam Cottage used to be a farm workers residence which has recently been given a new lease of life with some renovations. The self-catering cottage is situated on the foothills of ‘Soetmuisberg’ just outside Bredasdorp. The cottage has no electricity and relies on paraffin lamps and candles for lighting and a wood fired ‘donkey’ for hot water. The cottage has a rustically luxurious feel to it.

Enjoy the lapa with fireplace or relax on the deck and take in the spectacular views of the mountain, irrigation dam and far off farming activities. Indoor fireplace / indoor braai in the living area.

The accommodation comprises a living area / kitchen which is fully equipped with gas stove/oven and fridge/freezer. There are two bedrooms which can accommodate six people. In room 1 there is a double bed and a double bunk and in room 2 there is a double bed. Both bedrooms are served by a common bathroom with toilet, basin and shower. Linen and towels are provided. Please bring your own swimming towels.

A stone’s throw to an old cement farm dam – a good place to soak in those late afternoon Overberg views.

Fire wood provided for the duration of your stay.

Join in the dairy activities or in feeding the calves twice daily. Join Pieter on a trip around the farm to experience farm activities first hand, by prior arrangement.

We are 28 km from the southernmost tip of Africa and on completion of the tar road will be about 45 minutes from Gansbaai and surrounding area. Pay a visit to nearby Elim and the budding new wine route.

Pets welcome by prior arrangement.
