Secluded in the garden is a large sparkling pool for the warm summer days. Generous breakfasts are served outside on the veranda of the main house, or indoors near the fireplace on a winter morning.

Swellendam is one of the oldest towns of South Africa and has much to offer. The famous open-air Drostdy Museum, excellent restaurants, shops and art-and-craft projects, charming historical buildings, a beautiful golf course, are just a few examples. On the fringe of the town, you will find the Bontebok National Park and the Marloth Nature Reserve - nature parks that provide various possibilities for hiking, horse riding, and bird watching. Other activities include a visit to the De Hoop Nature Reserve to see the whales, or a drive to the southernmost point of the continent in Cape Agulhas, canoeing on the Breede River, or a day trip through the Little Karoo with its charming rural villages. A wine tasting trip is also recommended - the Robertson Wine Route represents about 50 wineries, from small family owned boutique wineries to medium state-of-the-art estates and large modern wineries.
The 6 comfortable guest rooms are surrounded by yellowwood trees, fruit trees and palms. All rooms have a private veranda overlooking the beautiful garden which attracts a variety of colourful South African birdlife too.
The accommodation is styled with an eye for detail - reed ceilings, natural colours and quality fixtures and fittings. There are 4 well-equipped luxury rooms with a spacious en-suite bathroom. The 2other rooms are standard rooms - comfortable but slightly smaller, and ideally suitable for a shorter stay.
