Jock’s Cottages and the History of Dullstroom:

In 1889, the town of Dullstroom was founded on this very farm, known then as Groot Suikerbochkop.

The farm was owned by the family of J.H.H. Janson, the Administrator of the Reformed Church. His son, P.J.S. Janson, who was born in 1919, became a dedicated farmer after WWII, and passed on the land’s rich cultural heritage to his daughter, J.H. Janson, after his death. The farm has since been converted into outstanding accommodation venues, offering modern, self-catering facilities and a range of relaxing activities for all ages.

We have turned the original Groot Suikerbochkop buildings into a modern haven for fishing enthusiasts, travellers and nature lovers. From renting fishing equipment to finding the best homemade milk tart in Dullstroom, we are available to answer any questions you may have about the area and assist you with all of your accommodation needs.
