Primrose Cottage is a highly recommended Sutherland Bed & Breakfast providing accommodation in 2 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Upper Karoo region.

About Primrose Cottage

Having travelled around the world together, Denise and her husband David, amateur astronomer and retired tour manager at the Observatory (currently doing private, lazer star gazing on request), now welcome you to their stone cottage on grounds dotted with fruit trees and grapevines.

Accommodation

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 experience the snow in comfort.

Breakfast

An authentic English breakfast is provided in the yellow wood dining room.

Activities in and around Sutherland

Take time to relax on the drive from Matjiesfontein, 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.

Sutherland has become well known for the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) inaugurated in November 2005 at the already world famous observatory. Visitors should take advantage of one of the regular, extremely interesting tours of the observatory telescopes including the visitors centre and the SALT project.

For those interested in history, there are military graves in the Boer war cemetery and a tour of the NGK church where the soldiers were billeted is a must. A door containing graffiti written by the soldiers can still be seen. Sutherland is also the home of the Louw brothers, well known Afrikaans authors. Their house is now a museum.

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.

Eleven out of ten for this quaint B&B. Warm welcome, super clean and cosy double room, more than enough info of what to do, where to eat, shop etc. Land lady booked stargazing at Sterland for us which we really enjoyed. Not to mention the excellent breakfast every morning, thank you Denise!! Dave, we enjoyed our conversations about mutual interests. We highly recommend Primrose cottage. Lovely, well traveled and interesting hosts. Just loved everything about our two day stay. If you don’t go, you will miss out. The choice is yours!

David and Denise made Sutherland for us. Cosy, comfortable, home style stay. Delicious, varied breakfasts, enjoyable conversations and stories. Much advice and helpful advice and information which really enhanced our stay. We discovered that Sutherland will accommodate anything, even opening a shop or Restuarant if you just ask and Denise helped us to organise much of this. The Old Brown Sherry on the freezing evening that we arrived was a wonderful touch. We would not consider staying anywhere else when we return to Sutherland
