Most enjoyable stay. We used to live in the neighbourhood many years ago, so it was sort of being back home. The cottage is very centrally located but a car is essential.

About the neighbourhood
Our area is one of the best locations in Somerset West. It feels like you are in the farming area as we are literally bordering the nature reserve and there are even horses and chickens on the property next to us but we are 5 minutes from the shops of Somerset West. Our views are spectacular and you may see owls whilst sipping your wine on our patio!
Getting around
A car is definitely recommended but Uber is available for those wine tastings or trips to the airport should you need it.
