Self catering accommodation in Montagu, Western Cape

Originally built as a Coach house around 1900

The Cricket House Guest House in the historical heart of Montagu stands on its own, within walking distance of most of Montagu's earliest buildings - many listed as National Heritage Buildings, housing museums, shops, restaurants, pubs and homes. It's location combines town life with a view across the "dorpse-plaase" ("town-farms") over the road, and the ever-changing mountains that surround Montagu in the background.
