Nestled in the foothills of the Overberg mountains on the fringe of the historic town of Swellendam, Bloomestate is the perfect home base from which to experience the region's highlights - whale-watching on the Indian Ocean, wine-tasting in the estates of the Robertson Wine Valley, wandering the trails of the Langeberg Mountain range on foot or on horseback, and enjoying the nature, birdlife, wildlife and hiking trails of the Marloth Nature Reserve, the Bontebok National Park and the world renowned De Hoop Nature Reserve.
Set on 6.5 acres, Bloomestate balances a crisp, clean decor and contemporary architecture with open and natural spaces. A deck by the dam, a secluded jacuzzi, a saltwater pool, strategically-placed hammocks, a pampering day spa - every element of the guest house has been crafted to create a soothing and natural experience.
Bright and spacious, the 6 luxury garden rooms have a spacious bathroom with underfloor heating, a bath and a walk-in shower, and French doors opening onto a private patio with unobstructed views over garden and mountains. The extra large beds feature alpaca throws and high quality linen.
In addition, the Red Cloud room is perfect for a special occasion. The bed, bathroom and sitting area are all kingsize allowing for additional space.
To help sustain both the estate and the surrounding natural beauty, the guest house strives to use as many locally-made or Fair Trade products as possible. They serve local fruits and organic veg, use energy-efficient lighting, and scrub with earth-friendly cleaning products. The hot water is solar- heated and the waste is composted.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.

I thought you might appreciate some feedback on the guesthouses you booked for us last November.
Bloomestate in Swellendam is wonderful. The accommodation is first class, very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. Our hosts were charming and attentive and highly professional; they are very nice people. The breakfast was fantastic. You can recommend Bloomestate with complete confidence.
Woodhall, near Addo is fabulous. We could have stayed there for ever. You would be pushed to find anywhere better. This was definitely the high spot of our holiday.
Thank you so much for looking after us. We will be in touch again - we are hoping to return to South Africa in November
