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.

What a lovely time we had in Sutherland. The accommodation was really really lovely. We will definitely be going back again. Thanks to Annelien for organizing wood for us and a personal touch of brownies on arrival! The only fault would be that a new lounge suite is needed. We had a wonderful time there - so peaceful and relaxing - THANK YOU Annelien.

Quaint cottage however the furniture is all old and the couch's especially are dirty and are falling to pieces, the one can hardly be sat on. Considering the cold temperatures in Sutherland, I feel that one should at least be able to heat the cottage properly but with the huge gaps and holes in the doors this is impossible. It would have been nice to arrive at a warm cottage and I am sure that it would not have taken much trouble and effort for this to be done. The 2 plate gas stove is not really enough. The cottage was however clean.I do think that considering the above the price is expensive.

Our holiday was unfortunately cut short, when barely 8 hours after arriving in this sleepy dorp, the cottage was broken into while we were out having supper. The third break-in in 4 days, it appears that we were watched, as they new exactly where to find things. The cottage itself, while beautiful and well equipped (impressively, with the original Trivial Pursuit), is not very secure with no outside or street lighting. It is also not marked as a guest house, which initially surprised me. It has, however, got the BEST bath.

Absolutely gorgeous little place! Loved the décor and vibe. Only suggestion is that the bath be a touch more private, though the shower is just perfect! I believe this is the best place in Sutherland.
