All of the cottages are self-contained and have kitchens with stoves (with oven), fridges, microwaves, toasters, kettles and coffee plungers, making them ideal for self-catering.

Bosky Dell was a wonderful experience, the setting and view were beautiful. It was very clean with friendly, helpful staff.If I had one minor complaint is that the bed was not the most comfortable but it is somewhere we would visit again, hopefully soon and good value for the price.

We had a wonderful stay in the nice old fashioned stables. Everything you need is there, the bed comfy and the view awesome. Thank you very much for keeping the place like this!

Dear ownerFrom the moment that we opened the gates and enter onto the grounds of Bosky Dell..... We loved every minute of it. Ilse and her staff made sure that we are as comfortable as possible. The old world charm with this amazing view of the ocean and the penguins that is saying good morning and goodnight to us with their hoarse voices. I hope by writing this review that you will never be to fully booked to accommodate us when we would like to come and visit again.And we will.Eugene & Tebra du Plessis

We had a very relaxing and peaceful time at Bosky Dell. The decor and aesthetic of The Cottage was very much to our liking, with fresh linen and towels every day.The self catering facilities had everything we needed to cook.We will recommend this place to all our friends. Wonderful to watch the penguins from the kitchen window as we ate our breakfast!
