Superior Accommodation

One of Grahamstown's most admired landmarks, 10 Market Street has had many illustrious owners.  Declared a National Monument shortly after the restoration by Peter and Belinda Tudge, this gracious Settler house dates back to 1826 when British Settler Benjamin Norden acquired the original erf, then bordered by Market, Wilcox, Retief and George Streets.

Each of the nine double guest rooms is individual and special, whether located in the main house or in the converted stables.

Cooking at Norden's follows traditional lines and makes full use of seasonal ingredients and local produce.  Features are home-baked bread and rolls, stocks and plenty of fresh herbs to flavour soups and sauces, and after-dinner rum chocolate truffles served with coffee.  The innovative menu combines the best of South African and international influences and is superbly complimented by the excellent wine selection.

Discovered great food in peace and tranquility.
