Bugler’s Cottage… Bugler’s Cottage is so called because Mr Swart, the man who brought the post from Hermanus, lived here. When he crossed the bridge over the Klein River with his horse buggy, he used to blow his bugle to alert the villagers that the post was coming. Swart was slightly crippled and thus known as Hans Hinkepink. Note the low door height, as well as generally low height of this dwelling. The thatch roof is original to the simple cottage style of the late 1800s.
