Somerset Stables in Graaff-Reinet

Reinette Te Water Naude, wife of the late Dr Theo Te Water Naude, bought this old stable-like building, circa 1856, in 1997 and restored it to its present form. More buildings were added on to the main dwelling in a U-shape, with a veranda and shutters. A beautiful garden was laid out and is filled with trees, roses, plumbago, lavender, bougainvillea, evening primrose, hibiscus, flowers and herbs. Birds, bees, butterflies and chameleons frequently visit the garden. Enjoy the smell of jasmine while sitting on the veranda.

Somerset Stables is perfectly located in the most popular part of town, away from the hustle and bustle, yet within walking distance of shops, restaurants and schools. The large and comfortable en-suite bedrooms are stylishly decorated and include TVs and Persian carpets. A private entrance to the rooms ensures privacy, where you can enjoy peace, tranquility and comfort, and have time to reflect or meditate.

There is safe under-cover parking for vehicles on the premises with a remote controlled security gate. In the main house you can enjoy a hearty breakfast from the farm-like kitchen. The interior of the house is filled with antiques, Persian carpets, lots of history and conversation pieces, art and collectables. This is not a business, it is a sanctuary and home where you are a guest, to enjoy a memorable stay and to explore our town. Restaurants are located within a 5 km radius and credit cards are accepted.

Wonderful accommodation, delicious breakfasts and a warm welcome from Renette - what more could one want? Then the extra mile of dinner reservations having been made for us and advice on what to see and where to buy the best lamb - an amazing hostess!

review by Inger Marie Viberg

"A lovely stay"

This is worth a stay. A very well appointed establishment with a warm reception from a very gracious hostess. Interesting and intriguing building and history. Possibly the nicest and best presented breakfast ever.

review by Jan Van Zyl, South Africa


We arrived in SA as strangers and left as friends. Memorable and will certainly return without a shadow of a doubt.
