About Dovecote Cottage

Dovecote Cottage is located in the jewel of the Overberg, Hermanus. This cottage is set on the historic Flower Street; only minutes from the beach and within walking distance to the centre of Hermanus.

The cottage which can sleep four, offers a large master bedroom with an en suite bathroom. There is, in addition, an alcove off the sitting-room with twin beds. This accommodation is generally more suited to either a couple or parents with one or two children. This is because access to the only shower-room passes through the corner of the main bedroom-en-suite. There may be privacy issues for a different composition of guests.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the lounge area has a TV with DStv.

Hermanus is popular for whale watching from June to December, shark cage diving and many other water sports. Visitors can wander through the craft market or meander to the art galleries.

Family friendly: Dovecote's beautiful garden is completely walled with an electric gate creating a safe environment for young children. There are two separate bedrooms and a well-appointed kitchen ideal for family meals and suitable for table activities.

Romantic: Dovecote’s main bedroom-en-suite (king-sized bed) is spacious and elegantly furnished with cane and antique yellow-woods. The quite separate sitting/tv room is cosy and the kitchen dining area is perfect for one of those intimate meals “at home”.

The owners took special precautions to make sure my two little Yorkies were safe and happy, which I really appreciated. The cottage is so spacious and beautifully decorated, it feels like home. Everything in the cottage is of good quality and the bedding is super comfortable. You can walk anywhere you want to be from the cottage and it is a safe environment. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

The cottage is very spacious, well-equipped and conveniently located to the coastal walkway, shops and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for a couple or family of four looking your a Tranquil place to come back to after venturing about during the day.
