About Southey Cottage

Southey Cottage is located near the slopes of Table Mountain in the beautiful leafy suburb of Upper Claremont. It has a lovely sheltered and private garden - with salt water pool , superb mountain views, and secure off street parking. The pretty garden is an absolute haven of peace and quiet.

Three suites have their own mini kitchenette with fridge, micro-wave, tea and coffee making utensils and facilities that can be used for warming up convenience meals.
