Within 10 minutes of meeting the owner he basically told us to "keep the children under control or he would chuck us out" referring to a 3 and 5 yr old who had been travelling for 2 days from Botswana by car. We were shocked and the attitude of the owner completely spoiled our Christmas vacation. Had we had an alternative we would definitely have moved accommodation immediately. An owner who cares more for his pot plants than his guests. Although factually correct, the description of the accommodations on-line was also very misleading - there is NO private entrance - this is shared with the owner; we found NO safe for valuables in the cottage; the "outside dining area" is a tiny bench wedged up against the rear fence; the owner has NO concept of privacy and was out watering his beloved potplants around the cottage every day as soon as we returned - we got the distinct impression that he was watching us. NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. NOT RECOMMENDED. as we were leaving after Christmas the owner made a pathetic half hearted apology for "having to crack down on the children". Far too little far too late. Oh, and their offence on the day of arrival? To break a single flower stem right by the entrance door on one of probably 100 potted plants. Only masochists should stay here. I am still angry.

We travelled to Somerset West for my son's wedding and what a perfect place to stay for such a special occasion.

Situated at the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain, the house is charming, comfortable and well appointed and Celia and Trevor are perfect hosts.

I know I will be back in Somerset West again to visit new family and I will definitely stay at Lavendar Cottage again.
