“Embrace the countryside in the heart of the Swartberg Mountains…”
Nestled at the foot of the famous Swartberg Mountain Pass you’ll find “Voorbedach” Farm, home to the charming Swartberg Country Manor.
25 gorgeous, individually decorated en-suite rooms are set across three different locations, namely the Historical House (four rooms overlooking the sprawling fig orchard), the Main House (11 rooms with breath-taking views from the open lounge) and a further nine rooms set in Karoo-style cottages, including a dreamy honeymoon suite with a vintage feel. Combining classical styles with modern touches, each room is a delightful pocket of charm and tranquillity – what more could you ask for on a relaxing escape away?
If it’s rest and relaxation you seek, Swartberg is the ideal spot, but if you’re keen on exploring the surrounds, it also provides the perfect base. Discover the nearby Cango Caves or epic views from the Swartberg Pass, go hiking in the hidden valley of Gamkaskloof, mountain biking on the surrounding rugged terrain or picnicking/pairings out in nature.
The onsite restaurant Patat serves honest and delicious dishes paying homage to South African flavours and traditions. Enjoy daily breakfasts and sundowners on the open deck as you drink in the changing hues cast on the mountains as the sun dips down low.
Experience elegant country style, warm hospitality and true relaxation at this authentic country retreat.
Available for weddings | Children welcome
