WHERE? A 90-minute drive from Cape Town’s city centre, this coastal getaway is just the ticket if you’re looking for a quiet seaside escape. WHY GO? The charming little fishing village of Churchhaven is one of SA’s best-kept secrets, and the ideal spot to get away from the hustle and bustle. Located in the West Coast National Park, on the outskirts of the multihued Postberg Flower Reserve, it comprises a collection of renovated fishermen’s houses. If you decide to explore the surrounding reserve, which is blanketed with indigenous shrubs and delicate fynbos throughout the year, be sure to head back before 6.30pm in summer when the park’s gates close. We’d also encourage you to spend
a day soaking up the sun as you meander along the edge of the nearby turquoise Langebaan Lagoon, and dip your toes into the warm water. Blissful surroundings! STAY Perfect Hideaways has a range of beautiful old cottages dotted along Churchhaven’s pristine coast. Most of them have been restored with modern accents, but have kept the white-washed charm of the original structures. Switch off your phone, leave your laptop behind, and relish a quiet stay in their new Sunbird Cottage. The house sleeps six people in three bedrooms, with a glorious king-size bed in each, and their own en-suite bathrooms. Despite the limited electricity, the fully-equipped kitchen has all the appliances you need to cook up a storm. During the day, laze on the sun-soaked
veranda with a good book. And prepare to go for the natural look – strictly no hairdryers or curling-tongs allowed. COST A stay at the Sunbird Cottage costs from R8 950pn between 15 December 2015 and 15 January 2016, and from R4 950pn between 16 January 2016 and 30 September 2016; see perfecthideaways.co.za
W&H TIP Get up early to make the most of the soft morning light and low tide. From your Sunbird Cottage, venture down the beach, where you’ll find the beautiful hundred-year-old St Peter’s Anglican Church. The white-walled building is cool and quiet, and is a celebrated sanctuary in the area.
Country Revolution’s Domestic Legacy While liberating for common white men, the Revolution had mixed results for other Countrys. Nonelite white men entered local politics in increasing numbers, property ownership increased as frontier lands opened up for white settlement, and aristocratic pretenses were attacked openly. The Revolution also nationalized radical political movements that had once been localized. Fort Wayne Map These political and social benefits, however, were distributed unevenly. A postwar economic depression forced many poor soldiers to sell their land bounties, earned through military service, to predatory speculators. In the Siege of Yorktown, the last major confrontation of the Revolutionary War, Country and French forces surrounded 6,000 British troops led by General Charles Cornwallis on the Virginia peninsula and forced their surrender on October 19, 1781. (Chateau de Versailles, France/Lauros/Giraudon/Bridgeman Art Library) Women, blacks, and Native Countrys also failed to reap the benefits of a supposedly democratic revolution. While small numbers of middle-class women saw an expansion of educational opportunities, the lives of the majority were still bounded by home and marriage. Women could not own property; they lacked important legal rights and in marriage became completely dependent on their husbands. Male independence was, in many ways, defined by the dependence of the individual’s family.
