About Dolittle Cottages

Two cottages in a peaceful setting. Our three resident donkeys will greet you, and our roaming chickens might pop by to say hello. If country living is your thing and you love animals, you'll love your stay with us.

Both cottages have one bedroom with a queen size bed, and one bedroom with two single beds (bedding and towels provided), a bathroom with bath and shower, a fully equipped open-plan kitchen/lounge (crockery and cutlery is provided), a queen size sleeper couch in the lounge area, a braai on the patio, off-road parking behind a security gate, and an alarm system.

We live right next door and guests are welcome to use our splash pool to cool off anytime. Someone is always available either on the premises or on call if there's anything you need that isn't provided. We'll make sure there is coffee, tea, sugar and milk when you arrive and that the ice trays are full. There will also be enough wood for your first braai...on us!

          We had a fantastic time at Doolittle. Clean and well-appointed, and just perfect for kids! Our toddler loved feeding the donkeys and there is loads of space and lawn for him to run around. Very easy check in and all protocols followed.

          Taking a road trip in the time of Corona can be seen as risky, unless you pack all your sanitising essentials for the necessary stops along the road and book a stay at Dolittle self-catering cottages in Swellendam. We were (to quote Wordsworth) surprised by joy at the inviting sight on our arrival. Spick & span. From the well-manicured lawns to the well-appointed and well-sanitised interior with a bowl of freshly cut roses on the kitchen table, to the sight of healthy farm animals going about their business. The warm, welcoming host alerts you to the carrots in the fridge, should you wish to...
