Nestled against the Swartkops River and between Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth is the thriving town of DESPATCH!
 

A lonely chimney, built in 1882, is all that remains as a silent reminder of a lucrative era when a thriving brick industry existed and bricks were “Despatched” from a railway siding near Uitenhage. Some of these early bricks can still be found with the name ‘Despatch’ imprinted on the top and bottom of the brick.  

 

Although considered new, Despatch was established in 1942 and true to its roots, this small town has devolped a personality of its own and the people in this close knit community make it what it is today!

 

Placed within this wonderful town, and with all the amenities you would require in an establishment, BUTTONS SELF-CATERING ACCOMMODATION is a hearty welcoming accommodation, with secure, under-cover parking  and a wonderful pool. Ron and Barbara, your hosts at BUTTONS SELF-CATERING ACCOMMODATION, bid you an enthuastic  welcome and trust that you will enjoy your stay!  

 

As experienced travelers, ourselves, we have first-hand knowledge of the difficulties our guests often have to face and we have tried to put this knowledge to good use by providing for all the short-comings of those establishments  where we stayed during our travels.

 

If we have overlooked anything please let us know.  We would greatly appreciate your input as our goal is to make BUTTONS SELF-CATERING  ACCOMMODATION the best in all fields and not only in value for money!

 

 

As with anything we do, we asked the Almighty Lord for His blessing, which He has given us and blessed us with wonderful guests, some who return regularly and have now become firm friends.
