We actually stayed in the flatlet next to the cottage which had a great view across the pool to the garden from our lovely terrace. Our hosts, Viet and Emanuela were very welcoming and helpful. Although the space was quite bijou, it was very well equipped and bright and, along with the outside space, was not at all constricting and all you would need when the weather is good. We enjoyed the dogs that live there and the very generous sized swimming pool and comfortable loungers. All in all, we felt very at home at Plough Hill and when in Constantia, we would definitely stay there again.
A fabulous cottage with everything including welcoming hosts. Beautiful gardens and pool, serene and relaxing week.
Plough Hill Cottage is located in a very quiet part of Constantia, very convenient for the shops and wonderful places to eat and to go wine tasting.
Emanuela was was most helpful and always ready to help..
My husband and I booked for 6 nights and wish we had been able to stay longer. The owner was very welcoming and thoughtful with small things like milk, butter etc in the fridge on arrival The cottage is situated in a quiet lane. It is beautifully and very comfortably furnished and it is perfect for a couple and with lots of space for having friends over. The owner was very gracious in allowing us to have friends over and providing barbeque equipment. We definitely will visit again.
Emanuela is simply the nicest, friendliest host I have ever met - and she provides an extremely generous welcome pack of food and drink on arrival (something more usual in Europe but I have not seen before in SA). The cottage is lovely - with the most comfortable bed of our 3 week stay! Everything was very clean, with flowers to welcome us. Spacious dining / living area, with compact kitchen area with all you need. Good shower. Great wifi. Outside areas are great, enabling you to catch the sunshine through the day, and lovely comfortable sun loungers - plus use of the main pool of the house (a very nice pool and good size). All in all this was a perfect place to stay and a great base for exploring the area (again). We will be back! Anyone interested in hiking Table Mountain, a great trail starts just 6 minutes drive up the road at Constantia Nek - highly recommended as a steady route up!
We really enjoyed our week during Christmas at Plough Hill cottage. The cottage is private and quiet surrounded by shrubs and flowers and the scent of lavender. We could use the large swimming pool in the host, Ema's, garden and play with her adorable little dogs. Ema provided milk, bread and fruits and all the basics. We loved the coffee machine! The location is convenient for the city and coast and has several beautiful wine estates nearby and is close to Constantia shopping centre. The cottage was super clean and tidy and I would highly recommend staying there.
I spent 2 weeks at the Plough Hill cottage during my trip to Cape Town and i must say that i thouroughly enjoyed my stay here.
The host, Ema is a lovely, friendly lady that makes you feel right at home. The area of Constantia is extremely quiet, calm and peaceful aswell as abundant with amenities such as Yoga Studios, beautiful restaurants, shopping centres, gym facilities and wine farms.
The cottage is fully equipped and beautifully decorated, i specially enjoyed the fact that i could have REAL coffee from the Espresso machine.
i would highly recommend this accomodation to anybody that is going to be visiting Cape Town. book now to avoid disappointment!
