Nestled on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain at Grangehurst are two cozy cottages that offer an ideal base for visitors wanting to enjoy the beauty and attractions of the Cape Winelands, the False Bay coastline, and surrounding mountains.

The historic town of Stellenbosch, the bustling Somerset Mall, and the village of Somerset West are all approximately 10 minutes away. The outstanding sandy beaches of The Strand and the quaint fishing and sailing port of Gordon’s Bay are within 15 to 25 minutes drive of Grangehurst.

At this stage, we have two cottages available for self-catering guest accommodation.

Willow cottage (65m²) has an open plan kitchen-living area and a bedroom with optional twin beds or a double bed. The living area leads onto a large veranda, where guests can sip their sundowners gazing across miles of vineyards, hills, and majestic mountains.

The kitchen-dining area is well equipped with all necessary equipment. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and separate bath. The kitchen, living area, bedroom, and bathroom all have undertile heating to ensure comfort during the winter months.

Oaktree cottage (105m²) comprises a fully equipped kitchen, large open plan living-dining area with a fireplace, two double bedrooms, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bath, as well as another toilet-shower room.

The kitchen and the bathroom have undertile heating. For outdoor entertainment, there is a choice of an undercover verandah and a small, leafy garden area or an open verandah with amazing views across vineyards and False Bay to Cape Point, Simon’s Town, Constantia, Table Mountain, Cape Town – and even further.

Both cottages have satellite TV, WiFi and access to a large swimming pool to keep you cool during the warm, summer days.

Grange Cottages are conveniently situated for guests to experience the interesting wineries and restaurants of the area. For guests wanting sporting activities, there are excellent golf courses within a 10 kilometre radius, exhilarating swimming or surfing at some of the Cape’s best beaches, mountain biking and hiking in our lovely mountains and through the nearby nature reserves.

After a busy day, guests can relax in the tranquil environment of the cottages and discuss the wonderful variety of local wines with resident winemaker Jeremy Walker and his wife Mandy. They will also be available to give you advice on local attractions so that you will be able to enjoy your holiday to the full.
