Our house is situated on our family farm 35km outside of Swellendam between the foothills of the Langeberg Mountain and the Indian ocean. Depending on the time of the year there are many farm activities to see and experience. Our house is light and airy but very much home. We have an indoor garden which is any plant enthusiasts dream. Our guest bedroom has a lovely dubbel bed with only Egyptian cotton linen and an en suite bathroom with a shower and white towels.
The cottage is situated about 30 meters from the main house and 45m from the river. It is elevated and overlooks the BreedeRiver. Guests are welcome to make use of the two-man canoe or SUP at their own risk. There is rainwater to be used as cooking and drinking water. Please do not use the tap water for drinking water as this is pumped straight from the river. There is a TV in the cottage with Netflix connected. This is the place to relax and regroup. Enjoy!
