This hidden historic gem, in the best location in Grahamstown, doubles up as a family home and is run as a very successful Guest House. Where every room tells a story.

This property comprises the Messenger's Cottage which is the oldest cottage in Grahamstown (built in 1814), a former Saddle Shop and Tannery, and the original Grahamstown Gentlemen's Club. The Messenger's Cottage was originally a thatch roof building, later destroyed by fire, and, together with The Yellow House, was used to determine the building line of High Street.

It was once home to District Surgeon Dr John Atherstone and later to the prominent 1820 Settler, Thomas Stubbs, who ran his saddle shop and horse-driven omnibus service from the property. The stone cottage in the garden, which now serves as a guest room, was used as his tannery.

In 1862 the double storey section of the property which now comprises the main area of the Guest House was built by the then-owners of the property, the Grahamstown Gentlemen's Club. Remnants of these days include granite plugs in the wooden floors in Reception, upon which the billiard table stood, and signatures on the glass in the bay window which were purportedly of club patrons who tested the authenticity of diamonds in this way.

This is a hidden gem, one with location, history and a very successful run guest house. A must to be visited.
