The Book Cottage, Hermanus

Welcome to the Book Cottage

The Book Cottage is an independent little bookshop that was opened 14 years ago, May 1996, by the late Sue McNaught. The Cottage is situated in the little seaside village of Hermanus in the Overberg area.

We stock a comprehensive range of books and the usual accompaniments such as cards, maps diaries, journals as well as an extensive selection of titles by South African authors, combined with books on local history and attractions, in short, everything you need.

If we don’t have what you are looking for, we will do our utmost to get it for you. From the moment you walk in, your enquiry is met with charm and expertise of our knowledgeable and often eccentric staff, but you also have the opportunity to browse unhindered, unless you request assistance.

Bring your children to the best kids section in town where a dedicated staff member will take time out to ensure that your child will stay interested about books and reading by recommending something new and exciting. This is the embodiment of a great little bookshop.

The owners are friendly and it is the kind of place where politics, religion and philosophy can often be heard being debated among our shelves. Please drop us a mail if you have questions, queries about books or comments to share, or join our facebook page. This quaint bookshop is fun and has something for everyone.
