Bickley House

Prospect stREET, darling


Welcome to Bickley House, our beautiful house located in the charming village of Darling, approximately 1 hour from Cape Town. Known for its wine production and as a gateway to the wonderful Cape West Coast, Darling is an unusually peaceful place on earth and the perfect base to explore the area.
Bickley House was originally built in the mid-1800s by a shoemaker and his family, and was completely renovated, with great attention to detail, when our Swedish owner acquired it in 2009. The house comes fully equipped with a kitchen, main bedroom, a lounge (with bed), a cosy livingroom, 2 fireplaces and a bathroom. In the cottage there is a bedroom with 2 single beds and an en-suite bathroom. The private garden includes a lovely 14-meter swimming pool with comfortable recliners, outdoor dining and a typical South African “braai” area. 
This is the perfect location for a family or couple looking for a ”home-away-from-home”-type accommodation in quiet, small-town surroundings and with cosmopolitan Cape Town around the corner. The Cape West Coast has so much to offer and so many interesting places to discover, both by the sea and inland!
Conditions: Minimum stay 3 nights, no children under 12 years.
