Set back from, but an easy 2 minute walk to, the main street of the historic Germanic town of Hahndorf you will find Billys Cottage. Steeped in history this charming restored cottage speaks of the beauty of yesteryear but with all the modern conveniences of easy living. Sleeping up to 7 guests in 3 rooms, luxurious linen and towels plus a sumptuous breakfast of local produce is provided.

The space

Built in the 1840s and lived in by several generations of the same family until the 1970s Billy's Cottage has since been sympathetically renovated and beautifully looked after. The open plan kitchen and dining area flows to three bedrooms all elevated just above and up a flight of three steps. With a wood burner combustion heater in the living room and gas heater in the dining area, staying warm is never a problem and in the hot summers, the cool slate tiled floor and thick stone walls keeps the whole home at comfortable temperature.
Offering a modern, convenient and unique approach to days gone by living, it will get harder and harder to leave Billy's Cottage as you fall in love time after time.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to access all areas of the house and garden except the fourth bedroom.

Interaction with guests

We endeavour to meet all guests on arrival if possible. We are available by telephone if there are any queries and we only live ten minutes from the cottage so we can help with anything during your stay.

Billy's Cottage is an amazing venue depicting some of the old world charm of Hahndorfs' early history & housing of the era, very clean with all facilities living up to expectations. Alexi was great to deal with & the personal touches of fire lit upon arrival so nice & cosy & breakfast provisions were very much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending this excellent venue & would certainly come back again

Billy's Cottage is a great place to stay in Hahndorf. It is centrally located, and very comfortable, with nice touches throughout. Alexi met us at the cottage and gave us an intro to her cottage , and also some local knowledge for restaurants and wineries.

Billy's cottage is a beautiful reminder of how things used to be. Full of history and character we all enjoyed staying there. The rain on the roof at night and the sounds of the birds were relaxing while I the breakfast provisions sustained us for two days of wine tasting. Thank you Alexi and Nic for sharing this historic house with us.
