Me and my wife are pensioners and recently has done a tour through the small and great Karoo. We had booked a stay-over on 20th March at Swartberg Country Manor and found it a stunning experience! On arrival we were introduced to our very friendly host and manager, Colleen Smith. She suggested us to first relax with a drink on the restaurant deck before showing us our room. What a wonderful first impression to see the majestic Swartberg mountain range from here. On our request we were shown around and we were impressed by the diversity of enchanted rooms. We chose the bit less luxurious, but much more romantic 'Baking house' room, a small single standing old house, suitable for the more adventurous and romantic couples. We enjoyed the breathtaking view onto the Swartberg with some wine for the rest of the afternoon. We then had dinner on the patio outside the restaurant and although there was not a variety of choices on a menu, we found the service and food very well prepared. We noticed that groups can also be accomodated, as we met a group of happy dutch mountain bikers.
What we liked most of this manor were different aspects: the excelent personal attention, the location with beautiful views, the diversity of rooms, and very central to visit the Swartberg Pass, Meiringspoort, Cango Caves and ostrich farms near Oudtshoorn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm "Voorbedacht" situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Pass. The picturesque panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to "get away from it all" and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.The farm was purchased in 2003 and welcomed its first guests in February 2005. The extraordinary views of the Swartberg Mountain from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley."Voorbedacht" farm is a working farm, which offers our guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo. Among the various agricultural products farmed, we also farm livestock such as, cattle, sheep and ostriches. Daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley, while for the more "wild at heart"; mountain bikes are available to explore the more rugged terrain. ... more less
