We have guests returning year after year, some from as far back as 1995 when Eastbury Cottage was first established!


Rose and Jack Pictured: Jenny, Jack and Rose


Very close to our hearts are Rose and Jack Murdoch who visited us for many years as “Swallows” from Shropshire in England.  We received a lovely Christmas card from Jack and Rose saying that sadly, due to their very senior years, they will not be flying to the Southern Hemisphere again.  Here is a poem that Rose wrote for our guest book:

Dear Jenny, Just before we fly, we want to thank you for the braai: South African tradition meats with wors, kebabs and other treats, and Winston, nose to paws, asleep, and Shelly, down among our feet. Thanks too, to Cuyler for good cooking, and Craig, who willingly goes looking for Viv or Pretty when we knock– at any hour around the clock. To top it all, the fun we had with stories told by your dear Dad. If at home our spirits ebb, We’ll think of Malcolm, Joyce and Seb, and search our maps (perhaps for years) to find a Scottish town that bears the honourable name of Bowes.  – Jack and Rose Murdoch, England vintage car at Eastbury Cottage Regular guests Mike and Fran with their vintage beauty



We welcome messages of appreciation on all platforms like Booking.Com, Lekkerslaap, Afristay etc and  we would welcome a good review on Trip Adviser too!    For those who feel we might have “slipped up” in some way, we would love to hear directly from you by email with your constructive criticism so that we may address any issue that you might have had.  We welcome positive  :-) and negative “ouch” feedback that would improve our service, to make you and our future guests more comfortable.

A little gem of a place in Hermanus!
