Bruce’s interest and research into the Owl House eventually led to him settling in Nieu-Bethesda where he opened a guesthouse.
Somerland Guesthouse is a typical Karoo/Provèncal style home, very stylish and well appointed. It offers self-catering accommodation that consists of two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a lounge/dining area and a kitchen. Guests can relax in the magnificent garden with outdoor braai (barbeque) facilities.
The surrounding area offers magnificent Karoo landscapes dominated by the majestic Kompasberg. The area is rich in fossil remants.
