About Dorset Cottage

Whether you need a base from which to explore Cape Town, a place to stay while your on buisness, or just a place to relax in the tranquility and peaceful setting of a country garden. Dorset Cottage, in the quiet suburb of Diep River, is that ideal place.
The Flatlet is located in a secluded corner of this country garden. It offers an open-plan kitchen and lounge area which opens onto the pool and small patio. The bedroom with en-suit shower and toilet leads off the lounge. Above the main double bed is a loft area with a single bed. The accomodation is therefore idealfor two people but can accomodate a third person, perhaps a young child, as they will basically be sharing the same room. The kitchen has a small fridge, two plate stove with a small oven and a microwave oven, kettle plus all necessary cooking utensils.
There is safe parking behind locked gates on the main driveway.

We are located within walking distance of two train stations and bus routes. There are excellent shopping centres in the area with a variety of restaurants. The False Bay beaches are just 20 minutes drive away and the centre of Cape Town no more than a 25 minutes by car (except in rush hour traffic).

Other local amenities include:
Kirstenbosch Gardens
Easy access to walking routes on Table Mountain
Alphen Trail
Golf courses
Norval Art Gallery Tokai
Blue Route Shopping Centre
Constantia Shopping Centre
Cavendish Square Claremont
Constantiaberg Medi Clinic

      Lovely clean accommodation. Friendly and obliging hosts, keen to please. Nice touches like bread, milk, cereal and homemade jam supplied. Unfortunately, the bedroom is very small and cramped.
