Overview
Simones Cottage is a cosy cottage perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. The unit features one bedroom with a queen-size bed and a private bathroom consisting of a shower only. <br /><br />The kitchen is equipped with a stove and oven, cutlery and crockery, as well as tea and coffee facilities, while the lounge is comfortably furnished with a fireplace that creates a warm atmosphere on those cold and sometimes snowy, winter nights. The cottage has a big garden and is situated next to the Gats Riverbank and is within walking distance of town.<br /><br />Although the town only has a couple of streets, a few guest houses and restaurants, a pub and a couple of quaint art galleries, the rustic charm of the town attracts tourists from all over. The Owl House and Camel Yard are worth a visit and consist of a Karoo-style cottage that has been transformed by its former owner, Helen Martins, into a glass-encrusted wonderland and statue-filled garden. <br /><br />For those looking for more sights and attractions, Graaff-Reinet is only a short drive away and offers a golf course, the Valley of Desolation as well as the Camdeboo National Park.

"Nice and warm on a chilly April weekend."
17 Apr 2017
By Ross Charnock
"Simone's Cottage is the perfect size for a weekend stop over in Nieu-Bethesda. It has all the necessary kitchen appliances (toaster, microwave, kettle, etc) for self catering, as well as spacious bathroom with a bath and shower. The weather was rather chilly for an April, but the cottage was far warmer than we expected, which made for a cosy stay!"

"We loved every moment of the short one night stay at Simones. The place is equipped with fireplace for the cold nights, electric blankets, and both shower and bath. The decor is thoughtful and rustic. Very reasonable for what you get - Thanks for the memories, and we will be back"

By Ron, South Africa
"We enjoyed our overnight stay in this rustic but comfortable cottage. We did not miss the TV as we were able to watch the all important Stormers game at the local pub.Fortunately we brought or own coffee as none is provided."
"Quaint Cottage"

By Jan, South Africa
"We spent one night in Nieu-Bethesda and stayed at Simone's Cottage. Delightful rustic look with above average amenities. Quiet and private. Excellent value for money. Only suggestion: Make some coffee and sugar sachets available - few guests would bring that along and the coffee shops/restaurants only open later in the morning!Jan (Durban)"
