This is one of the best pet friendly places we have had the good fortune of visiting. Situated just outside Bredasdorp it’s a pleasant drive from Cape Town and absolute doggy heaven.
The cottage is surrounded by green fields and the view of the dam from the stoep is comforting, amazing and peaceful. Especially if you are lying in the hammock after a good walk. A little stream flows through the forest behind the cottage and once across it there’s a nice hike up to the top of the SoutMuis mountains that overlook the area. There are lots of friendly cows about so your dogs need to be familiar with livestock.
Part of the welcome includes fresh farm milk in the fridge, rusks and a complimentary bottle of wine. What stood out for me though was that there are so many lamps and each lamp had a box of matches with it so you never had to search. There is also plenty of wood provided to fire up the donkey for shower time. I was amazed at how long the water stayed hot.
A lot of love and care went into making this cottage comfortable and homely. We really enjoyed our time at Bergen Dam and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
