The most charming Bed & Breakfast
in Swellendam on South Africa’s
Garden Route

Breakfasts

Imagine sideboards groaning with homemade breads, scones, muffins and jams, handmade cheeses, beautiful ham, pate and salami, freshly squeezed juices, freshly made fruit salads with creamy yoghurts and home baked honey muesli, the aromas of freshly ground coffee and fine teas brewed specially for you, while in the kitchen your breakfast is cooking, just as you like it!

Sundowners

Imagine watching the sunset reflected pink and gold against the green velvet backdrop of the mountains, sipping a glass of something delicious and listening to the evening chorus with a roaring fire to keep any evening chill at bay as day drifts softly into night.

Restaurants

Imagine enjoying a gourmet meal at one of several beautiful, romantic restaurants a stone’s throw from where you are staying with fine wines and fabulous food to make your evening just perfect.

Activities

POOL

Imagine swimming in beautifully clean, clear, mountain spring water, warmed by the sun, with a stunning view of the mountains running down towards you.

YOGA

Imagine giving yourself time and allowing soft mantras to soothe your mind and find inner calm as you breathe into the stretch, mindful of how your body feels and savouring the promise of savasana to come.

SPA

Imagine the wonderful fresh-hewn wood smell of a Finnish sauna cabin, where the dry air warms you and releases the tensions of the day, and the bubbling effervescence of the Jacuzzi where the jets gently massage your body from the outside and a glass of bubbly fizzes gently in your hand as the warm water envelops you.

SALON

Imagine the aroma of essential oils wafting around you while firm fingers knead your tense muscles to supple softness, your nails are gently buffed to perfection, or your face is restored to a youthful glow at the hands of an expert therapist.

Accommodation
Imagine relaxing in your temperature controlled junior suite, or enjoying the warmth of the heated floor percolating up from your toes in your bathroom where you can enjoy exquisite Rain products to pamper your skin and hair.
Imagine enfolding yourself in a soft duvet with crisply ironed Egyptian cotton sheets, cool in summer and gently warmed in winter, on a really comfortable bed where you can drift away into dreamland.

Gardens

Imagine tracing lines in the condensation running down the glass of your free ice cold drink as you admire the view from your comfortable sun lounger under a cloudless sky with a gentle breeze cooling you from over the water of a beautiful crystal clear pool.
Imagine walking on soft green grass under arches laden with beautiful roses, breathing in their scent as you amble past a spring of quiet water gently trickling over rocks into a stream.
Imagine dipping your toe into the clear water of the rill, burbling its way between the rocks in an orchard full of fruit trees and olives, while the air, filled with birdsong, comfortably warms your body.
Imagine watching your favourites on the huge screen, while reclining on the sofa with a cool drink! Stepping outside to cool off in the natural water of the swimming pool while savouring the excitement of the moment.

Swellendam and South Africa

The third oldest town in South Africa, the shady oak-lined streets of Swellendam seem to groan with history. Visit the Drostdy Museum, the old Gaol, the intricately built Dutch Reformed church that acts as a focal point of the town alongside a clutch of other historical national monuments – and all within just a few minutes’ walk from the Hideaway.

Nestling at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, Swellendam has much to offer visitors who have an interest in history, nature and outdoor activities.

First time visitors to South Africa are often surprised by how developed the country is. That being said, there is no doubt that South Africa – and the South African way of life – can be markedly, and sometimes amusingly, different from your own.
