Overview

Having travelled around the world together, Denise and her husband David, amateur astronomer and retired tour manager at the SAAO observatory (currently doing private,lazer star gazing on request) now welcome you to their stone cottage home on grounds dotted with fruit trees and grapevines.There is a double room en-suite and a twin bedded room with private bathroom. All rooms are equipped with heaters and electric blankets for those cold winter nights. We also have undercover parking for all vehicles to shelter them from the frost. There is an excellent music collection and an extensive library for those who want to relax and watch the snow in comfort. A full English breakfast is provided in the yellow wood dining room and dinner can be provided by arrangement.

Take time to relax on the drive from Maitjesfontein, enjoy the Karoo scenery and stop occasionally to listen to the silence. The climb through the Verlatekloof pass is stunning after which the telescopes at the observatory can be seen quite clearly on the eastern horizon.

For the birdwatcher Sutherland has a species count of 191, more than 20 of which are endemic. Most of these endemics can be seen within the grounds of Primrose Cottage at the right time. Let David and Denise identify these birds for you and of course point out the constellations visible in the incredibly clear night skies over Sutherland

Would have liked an ensuite bathroom with better toilet facilities.

We stayed at Primrose cottage for two nights and found Denise and David to be great. Dinner and stargazing was arranged for us and all we had to do was enjoy ourselves.
