About this location

The Western Cape region

Somerset West is a unique location in that it offers such variety. One day you can spend hiking up the mountains in the Helderberg Nature Reserve, the next you could soak up the sun on one of the beaches within 10 minutes drive and the next shopping at the Cape Town Waterfront and visiting all the Cape Town attractions. There is something for everyone whether it be sampling the local wines or cuisine on the magnificent wine farms, shark diving or playing golf on the many golf courses.

Somerset West also has an incredible selection of craft markets held on weekends many of which are on the area's wine farms. Everywhere you look there are breathtaking mountain or sea views and in some cases both!

"Somerset West gem"

Conveniently situated in a quiet road facing the Helderberg Nature Reserve, Alfie's Cottage is perfect for a stay in this area. The unit is attractively furnished, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Owners Charles and Jen are most informative and friendly hosts who are excellent examples of Cape hospitality. Highly recommended and definitely worth a return visit.

"Wonderful place to stay and relax"

We spent 11 nights in February 2014 and had a very comfortable stay. The cottage is in a lovely setting on the edge of the nature reserve in a quiet and suburb of Somerset West. The accommodation is furnished with good quality bed, bedding and towels and kept spotlessly clean. The daily maid service was another little bit of luxury whilst away from home and the family were friendly but gave us our own space so we didn't feel like we were living on top of them. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone.
