Soetdoring – Self-catering Country Cottage


Soetdoring is a sheltered self-catering country cottage with the emphasis on privacy and a great option as holiday accommodation in Oudtshoorn.  Here you may retreat into your ‘getaway’ and almost forget that you and your family are not the only inhabitants on earth.

Enveloped between a typical ‘small town’ Karoo country scenery and the comfortable chalet is the tranquil secluded garden patio with barbecue facilities.  This can either be a fabulous South African ‘braaivleis’ spot or the perfect space to regain your inner peace in joyful solitude.  May it be that your visit is too crowded you can always find the charming flower and vegetation patch with garden bench directly across the main bedroom quite attractive especially when shared with a special someone!


Overlooking a peaceful lucern field and a few farm animals, currently ‘dorpers’, roaming around on the next door town farmyard, Soetdoring offers typical Karoo farm accommodation and county atmosphere. Thus, for those who find the Klein Karoo charming and would like to experience a bit of it, the Soetdoring country cottage may just be what you are looking for.

Family Size Garden Cottage

This chalet is the largest of the Swartberger Lodge cottages offering Klein Karoo farm accommodation for five adults and one child.  The greatest qualities of this cheerfully decorated chalet, is the spacious double bedroom, sufficient kitchen and reasonable dining area with 6-seater solid dining table.  The large bathroom is appropriately equipped with both a shower and bath as well as a huge and neat cupboard for your bath accessories. The second bedroom with three single beds is also experienced as convenient and roomy and the carpets are priceless in wintertime! The relatively small lounge area with extra sleeper for a child is a snug cosy little corner overlooking the dining room and front door from a lower level angle.  It is from here that you really drink in the country cottage atmosphere!  Having a private driveway do justice to the idea of luxuriously private!  As always, the country cottage is equipped with outdoor cushions, making sure your patio experience is comfortable.
