About De Volkshuijs

Have you ever wondered what living in a National Monument would be like? Whether you're on a business trip, on vacation or doing sport, De Volkshuijs is the place where memories are made; where dreams take flight. It is a place that comforts you and holds you tight. Here guests can experience humble living as provided over centuries by the cottages, Sakkie and Saartjie.

Tastefully decorated and very well equipped for easy self-catering, each cottage has a bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables and a built-in cupboard. White bed linen and towels, double electric blankets and heaters are provided for the comfort of our guests. The bathrooms are fitted with a bath and/or a shower. Each living area is furnished with two single beds, a wooden dining table with seating for four plus a flat-screen TV with local channels.

The kitchens are equipped with electric stoves and ovens, microwaves and refrigerators with freezers as well as ironing boards and irons. The wooden cupboards are built-in and very neat. Coffee, tea, milk, sugar and rusks welcome our guests.

Each cottage has its own private courtyard with vine covered pergola and cobble paving. Traditional barbeque facilities are provided. The parking areas are secure to ensure your peace of mind.

We offer families the unique chance of relaxing in a cosy, well equipped slave's cottage, close to town. Share good times at the dining table or under the covered pergola or play games on the lawn. Feel at home, safe and cared for.

Me and my husband stayed at De Volkshuijs for one night only. We found it to be a cossy little place to overnight. We loved the historical atmosphere and the fact that our country's history is being preserved in such a novel, practical way.We have never been to Bredasdorp before but would like to go there again, especialy to se the green cornfields before harvest time. And we would like to stay in De volkshuijs again.

Despite being centrally located, the suburb is peaceful and quiet, and the cottage is neat and quaint
