Arniston Seaside Cottages
is situated in the town of Arniston, a fishing village of two centuries old. Take a leisurely drive along the N2, over the magnificent Sir Lowry's Pass, through the apple orchards of Elgin and over the patchwork of Bredasdorp's wheatlands to Arniston.
Close to the beaches are Arniston Seaside Cottages, a cluster of impressive luxury thatch roof cottages, emphasising the unique personality of Arniston itself. They can accommodate groups from a honeymoon couple to a party of 80.
You can wander down to the slipway and bargain with local fisherman for fresh fish, or even catch your own Galjoen or Steenbras.
Just a stones throw away are rock-pools where you can gather your own oysters or other delectable shellfish. You can cook your catch over a braai in the privacy of your own thatched lapa.
The cottages at Arniston Seaside Cottages are serviced every day allowing you to relax and fit into the casual lifestyle of Arniston.
The Southern Cape Coast is rich in maritime stories and a trip to the Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum and L'Agulhas lighthouse is well worth a visit.
Also close by is the famous De Hoop Nature Reserve or historical towns such as Swellendam.
Arniston is a favoured subject for artists and moviemakers.
It is also here that the Southern Right Whale can be spotted migrating to and from the Antarctic.Accommodation at Arniston Seaside Cottages

Everything worked well - the water was hot and particularly appreciated the electric blanket on a cold winter's weekend. Also very impressed that the fireplace worked well so that the lounge did not smell of smoke the next day.
The cottage was clean and well maintained and the booking and check in process very professional. We will definitely be back!
Everything was neat, the staff friendly, I also used the baby sitting facility and will recommend that for sure.
Accomodation very good. Arniston village amazing. Will definitely return for a longer period next time. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
