Angler And Antelope Guesthouse

Guest House Accommodation In Somerset East

The Angler and Antelope Guesthouse offers a unique experience on large landscaped grounds securely enclosed in the heart of the town. The venue has maintained the ambience of yesteryear with the comforts of the modern era.

Slightly off the beaten track, 24kms from Cookhouse west off the N10 between Port Elizabeth and Somerset East lies at the foot of the Boschberg Mountain. It is an undiscovered gem that reveals its depth of character when you are up close and personal.

The guesthouse's elegance is its simplicity. Most of the original Oregon of 1893 has been restored, and each of the six en-suite bedrooms captures the grace and elegance of the Victorian era, boasting air conditioning, goose down and cotton Percale. The bathrooms are something to behold, reflecting characteristics of the generations that inhabited the home previously, with underfloor heating. The accommodation comprises of three twin rooms, one double room and two double / twin / family rooms. Wireless internet connection is available on the premises.

There are also two self-catering units on the premises, each sleeping 4. Our family cottage has two bedrooms, bathroom and lounge with some self-catering facilities, and the self-catering suite is a cosy one bedroom en-suite with kitchen / lounge area.

St Francis, an old church built in 1906, boasts a spirited character and comprises of the lounge, dining room, and bar. Seated under Oregon beams on custom made Blackwood furniture, you might well find yourself contemplating, as your taste buds are tantalized by the wholesome country meals. If you find yourself confessing to enjoyment and relaxation whilst sipping your favourite malt whisky (from our collection of over 60) in the church you might be tempted to visit the old confessional.

The Wild Fly Fishing in the Karoo fly fishing tackle shop is just around the corner, and is a must visit for fly fishermen to experience Alan’s unique flies and wide range of tying materials.

Activities Include: Fly fishing, golf, hunting, historical tours, Walter Battiss art museum, picnics, bird viewing & game viewing.
