About Morley House Historical Accommodation
Morley House is an 1820s settlers' cottage in the picturesque rural village of Bathurst in the Eastern Cape. Bathurst is a great place to base yourself in the Eastern Cape.
We are only two minutes’ walk from the centre of the village where there are craft shops, art galleries, restaurants, cafes and pubs, including South Africa’s oldest pub the Pig and Whistle.
Morley House offers accommodation in the 3 bedroom self-catering cottage for families and groups of friends, or in our African style thatched ‘rondavel’ on a bed and breakfast basis. The accommodation is set in a large lush garden with a pool and plenty of areas to relax in peace.
The Cottage (Sleeps 6-8):
Morley House is an old settlers' cottage built in 1828 and has lots of original features such as yellow wood floors and fireplace. The cottage can accommodate up to 6 adults in the 3 bedrooms and is perfect for families or a group of friends. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, a cosy living room with DStv, a large fully-equipped kitchen and a private patio area with the all-important braai.
The Rondavel (Sleeps 2):
Our cute African-style thatched rondavel is an amazing place for a couple or individual to stay in Bathurst. We are sure you will enjoy the experience of staying in a traditional African dwelling and it has all the mod-cons you need to be comfortable during your stay.
There is a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with a hot-water shower. We provide tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge and a flat-screen TV with DStv channels. Outside is a small private patio for you to sit, relax and enjoy the garden and the birdlife. A full English breakfast is included.
We have a tea garden where you can enjoy a light lunch or an ‘English’ style afternoon tea, out on the deck in the summer or by the cosy log fire in winter.
