   Bed & Breakfast   

Self Catering



Nestled at the foot of the Boschberg Mountains, Somerset East is one of the gems of the Eastern Cape. If you're a nature lover, sports enthusiast, interested in history and culture, or you're just ambling along the Blue Crane Route experiencing the beauty and hospitality of the Karoo, you're going to want to spend some time in our town.

  The self-catering cottages and studio apartments are equipped with everything you need to make you feel welcome and have a relaxing time away from home.  


Hockley Cottages are the perfect base from which to explore Somerset East. The cottages are within walking distance of the main road and other attractions.  Visit the well-kown Walter Battiss Art Museum or arrange a  fly fishing  trip. You can bike or hike your way through the many trails in and around our lovely Boschberg Mountain area.  Or just enjoy the fresh air and spectacular views in and around our small town.
