Nestled under the Langeberg Mountains, 220 km from Cape Town along the N2 Garden Route, in the beautiful town of Swellendam in the Overberg region, this magnificent Victorian guesthouse (a parsonage from 1904 until 1974) has welcomed many visitors from all corners of the world. The peaceful settings of the gardens, to the warmth of the splendid decor, and comfort and service to the visitor, guarantee their return. Enjoy the elegance in a stately historic manor house, or in the garden cottage rooms each with a private entrance. Relax in the magnificent landscaped garden, or enjoy the African sun at the large salt-based swimming pool. A scrumptious breakfast is personally prepared by the owners using fresh local produce and from their garden. Dutch, German, English and Afrikaans are spoken.

Very large, comfortable, charming room in the main house. Great welcome and wonderful breakfast. Good location on the main street. Nice swimming pool and outside relaxing area. Would highly recommend both De Oude Pastorie and Swellendam.

We had a room in a separate house with a shared kitchen/diner/lounge and outdoor sitting space. The host was friendly and helpful and booked us a restaurant within walking distance. The pool was rather small.

Stayed here one night after our previous mix up with our booking left us with nowhere to stay so a gem of a find with 2 available rooms as we were travelling with friends. Large comfy room with tea & coffee making facilities with connecting door to lounge & kitchen facilities

When we arrived we were met by both Des and Wilma with a warm and friendly reception. Breakfast was first class Des even made me pancakes that were not on the menu, I must say they were perfect. After a morning shopping it was lovely to get back to their lovely garden to sit in
