About Brakdakkie Guest Cottages

The Karoo is one of South Africa’s most exquisite regions. It is quite unlike the verdant Garden Route, authentic African safari spots, or the bustling metropolises, though. The Karoo is stark, with a tangible mystery about it and a distinct drama in the fauna and flora that it showcases to its visitors.

It is in this idyllic setting that the Brakdakkie Guest Cottage can be found. Brakdakkie has received many fantastic reviews by travel guides, international newspapers and popular magazines for its comfortable rooms, lovely setting, and friendly service. This guest cottage boasts a unique décor style that has effectively blended the classic Karoo style (reminiscent of the traditional farmhouses of yesteryear) with modern amenities and a touch of luxury.

Having been built in 1950 on Sonskyn Farm, Brakdakkie still has the original barns and donkey sheds. Each of the well-appointed rooms is littered with keepsakes from the South Africa of generations past, while also having been restored to show off the original charm of the farmhouse, together with all of the modern touches that make it so special.
