Black Oystercatcher Cottages is a property for self catering in Elim for anyone visiting the Cape Agulhas region.

About Black Oystercatcher Cottages

Black Oystercatcher is a family-run wine farm at the cool southernmost tip of Africa. Our farm, situated between the small towns of Elim, Bredasdorp and L'Agulhas, in the Overberg region in South Africa, is home to the Black Oystercatcher Wines Restaurant and self-catering Cottages.


The four self-catering Cottages overlook the Nuwejaars River and biodiversity-rich Agulhas Plain. Each cottage is fully equipped with everything you'll need for the perfect country getaway. Enjoy activities like birding, canoeing or cycling; or simply settle down to revel in the fresh air and country lifestyle found on a working farm.

Activities and Attractions

Breathe in the fresh air, savour our wonderful fresh herb and vegetable garden (you can even pick them to spice up your meals) and enjoy the beautiful views over the Elim area (with a glass of wine of course) at our self-catering Bredasdorp accommodation.

For the active visitors, you can explore the area on your bike or by foot (walk or run through the vineyards and veld) and see the spectacular biodiversity of the area. For the bird lovers, this is a birding paradise and you can also arrange to see some of the Nuwejaars Special Management Area's wildlife (hippo's, buffalo). Canoe, kayak and bass fishing in the dam nearby.

Breakfast & Dining

At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season. We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer a fresh dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 11h00 - 14h30. Booking essential.

Verified reviewvery good

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay in the well appointed cottages. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable beds. Very helpful and friendly staff. Food great! Their wines are excellent! A lovely spot for a quiet stay with Cape Agulhas nearby.

My partner asked for an escape outside of the city and we found the perfect place at Black Oystercatcher. Arriving on the Friday with another couple, we enjoyed the wine and beer tasting on offer. We found the beautiful cottage and relaxed into the tranquil space. We loved our stay and would definitely go again.
