About Us

Hospitality is the gift of welcome, of caring for one another and caring for strangers. It is an open door, an open hand and an open heart.

A warm welcome awaits you at Cottage on the Hill. Your Hosts Rob and Anne Eaglesham and their daughter Lara will ensure you receive personal attention and excellent service at all times.

Cottage on the Hill is situated on the ridge and has a magnificent view of the Bay, Mountains and Village. It is within a few minutes walking distance to the main swimming beach and all amenities.

The Guest House is situated on 2000sq meters and consists of the Main House with The Bay Breakfast Room. The Guinea-fowl Cottage is a separate unit in front, about 30 meters from the Francolin and Mongoose Suites.

The 2 Executive Suites and Cottage are situated in an indigenous garden. Bird life is prolific and guests can enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings as they laze at the swimming pool or relax on their private decks. Guests may be lucky enough to hear the Eagle Owls that perch on the thatch roof late at night.

The Francolin Suite is the upper unit and the Mongoose Suite is below. Both have private entrance and the spacious Mongoose Suite has a secluded garden area with natural fynbos surrounding it and a little bench to enjoy the abundant bird life that visit the garden.

Each unit is individually designed and decorated and equipped for self catering. All our units have ceiling fans and heaters, secure parking is provided on the property and the units are serviced daily.

Guests can enjoy some excellent walks from the guest house. An information brochure is available in all the rooms listing the walks and activities to enjoy in St Francis.

We invite you to experience a holiday with us that you will never forget in the most beautiful and picturesque village in the Eastern Cape.

Enjoy South African hospitality at it's BEST!
