Annies Cottages are two thatched self-catering units situated in a quiet area of Bredasdorp, Overberg. The Cottage was built in 1856 and was recently renovated to ensure a home from home for guests. Straddling a double erf, the cottages have their own street entrance, but share a lush garden. They are set apart to guarantee sufficient privacy for guests, each with their own outdoor entertainment areas. Both cottages are tastefully decorated and well equipped with all the home comforts – percale linen, electric blankets, baths sheets and Weber braais. You’ve got DSTV and free Wi-Fi to top it all off. Traditional rustic touches include quarry tiles, the sweet smell of thatch, shutters, timber beams, a Queen Anne stove in The Annex and a Dover stove in The Cottage.

The Annex. SLEEP 4

Nearby attractions and places of interest include Arniston, De Hoop Nature Reserve, Elim, whale-watching spots, De Mond for the birders and Cape Agulhas, the tip of Africa, making Bredasdorp a very central place from which to explore the Overberg area.

“We stayed at this delightful thatched cottage built in 1846 for two nights over the Easter weekend and found it to be very pleasant and comfortable, close to the centre of Bredasdorp and in easy access of the neighbouring towns and beaches at Struisbaai, L’Aghulas and Arniston. The cottage is very well equipped, with all the home comforts.”
