The lodge and its uniqueness

Swellendam Country Lodge is proud to be officially accredited as a four-star Guest House by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. The guest house is conveniently located just off the R60 road, a beautiful provincial route. The characteristic manor house dates from the 1800’s and still has its distinctive historic features. The lodge has a unique setting in a large beautiful lush and exotic garden full of fruit trees. The various kinds of birds that the garden attracts will amaze you! The large swimming pool with sundeck complete with sun loungers and umbrellas is located privately in the back of the garden. You will also find a boules-court on the property to be enjoyed exclusively by guests.

Our 6 quality garden rooms are situated in separate buildings amidst the garden and all breathe a warm and stylish atmosphere with natural tones.

As owners, we take great pride in adding a personal touch to your stay. Your breakfast is exclusively made for you by Jan, our early-morning-chef. He will prepare everything fresh for you and will use as much ingredients from the garden as possible. Our homemade compotes and jams will surely delight your taste buds! Occasionally Vivianne might have baked some of her delicious muffins or cookies for you to have with your coffee. In Summer, you will enjoy your breakfast outside on the veranda of the house overlooking the garden. In Winter, breakfast will be served inside the house near the fireplace.

A perfect country getaway!
