Perhaps the most charming part of this property is that it a family estate steeped in the history of the first settlers to the Bermuda Islands. The owners display hospitality Bermuda is known for and are happy to drive to grocery store or other locations to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The owner is a naturalist: she has a mature garden surrounding the cottage with lush tropical flowers and birds. Truly a paradise found!
Somerset Village is a charming hamlet on the west end of the island, equipped with pretty shops, nice grocery stores and cafes and pubs to restore you. There are delectable beaches there too- Somerset Long Bay with creamy sands, bay-grape shrubs with their fascinating oval leaves and the turquoise waters you yearn for ~ only a 5 minute walk away from the house. Mangrove Bay is close to front of the cottage with all its little boats bobbing gently at anchor, and there is a cove you can swim from. The cottage is surrounded with a tropical jungle. From the long comfortably appointed veranda with your cool drink in your hand, the house built in the Bermudian traditional style of 300 years ago will transport you back to an earlier time.
The merits of this lovely little neighbourhood would have to include access to the ferry system at Cavello Bay Wharf and Rockaway Wharf, as well as the bus system that runs along Somerset Road. The Railway Trail has some of its most spectacular scenery in this area as it winds very close to waters edge of the Great Sound with extraordinary views looking back over to the ocean towards St. George's. Heading westward one is at Naval Dockyard within ten minutes by bus or ferry, less by moped.
Dockyard features a collection of spectacular buildings built for navy re-provisioning in the very early 1800's. Carefully restored, the handsome assortment of buildings now house museums, cafes, artist workshops, theatres and pubs as well as another ferry stop.
Heading towards Hamilton, you will be charmed with Ely's Harbour at Somerset Bridge where you can rent a little boat and explore the multitude of small islands just offshore.
Hamilton is about 25 minutes away by bus. Between Somerset and Hamilton you will see all the justly fabled beaches of the south shore, linked by coves and parks and scenery that is unforgettable.
