Somerset House


... is located the Cradock and Graaff-Reinet area of the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

Situated in a quiet backstreet in the pleasant Karoo village of Somerset East, this 1905 house offers a pretty good level of guest-house accommodation, with a handful of rooms in the main house and a particularly nice verandah looking out over lawned gardens to the mountains beyond.

Activities in the area are centred on exploring this well-preserved rural settlement, dining out and walking in the nearby reserve.

+ situated on the edge of town
+ reasonable low-range accommodation
+ owner-hosted
+ individually themed rooms
+ good food service
+ substantial sized garden
+ good swimming pool

- a little bit old-fashioned

Somerset House is a high quality guest-house and a very pleasant option for people wanting to experience a typical Karoo dorp.
