Sutherland is situated in the Northern Cape, just a stone’s throw from the Western Cape’s border, and is known for its clear skies, stars and its cold temperatures in winters, which can drop to below zero and snows occasionally. The town is also steeped in South African history, endemic succulents and amazing architecture.
The Artist’s Cottage
is situated in the centre of the little town Sutherland. The cottage is a typical Karoo-style building and has been renovated without losing its authentic feel.
The house contains two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, and comfortably sleeps four. Downstairs has a bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom. An open-plan dining area, kitchen and big fireplace, built in the old-fashioned way. The kitchen has a fridge, a small gas stove, a microwave, and all cutlery and crockery that you may need. Upstairs is a loft bedroom, which is accessible via stairs inside the house or outside of the house. The room has a modern open-plan bathroom with a loose standing Victorian bath and a separate toilet.
Our guests can enjoy our newly built karoo-style firepit under the stars!
Sutherland is home to SALT, the Southern African Large Telescope, which is the second largest optical telescope in the world. The town itself is quaint and quiet, but there is more to it than just visiting the observatory.
The Artist’s Cottage is ideal for that weekend away from the city, and spending some quality time with family and friends.

The upstairs room is in the loft accessible by either a ladder (inside) or staircase on the outside of the house. The upstairs room sleeps 3 people (queen bed and single bed) and has a ens-suite bathroom.
