About Swartberg Country Manor

Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the Voorbedacht Farm, which is 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 main farmhouse has been converted into a comfortable guest house that offers nine en-suite guest rooms, and the original 1864 farmhouse, has also been renovated to offer a further five en-suite guest rooms. It is impossible not to fall in love with this historical work of art with its ambience and character added by Oregon pine floors and ceilings with perfectly framed mountain views.

Our dedicated team will be your hosts and will ensure that you have an unforgettable homely experience. Meals are served in our spacious dining room or on the veranda overlooking the spectacular Swartberg Mountains. For those exquisite warm summer days, traditional South African delicacies will be prepared outside on open fires next to the swimming pool, along with refreshing beverages served from the bar.

Voorbedacht is a working farm which offers guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo. 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.

                  Spectacular setting, amazing hosts, and a great restaurant make this the best accommodation in Swartberg! We will definitely recommend to friends and will also be back in summer to enjoy the outdoor shower!

                  Our group of 7 people stayed for 4 nights, we can only compliment the staff and establishment for a fantastic stay. The quality of the food and willingness of the staff to fulfil our needs was exceptional. I would recommend the Swartberg Country Manor to my friends and will stay there again.

                  The Manor was absolutely gorgeous - a little jewel in the back of beyond. The room was lovely (we were in the Historic House) and the restaurant food was delicious. The service was first class and we wished in retrospect that we had a couple of nights there instead of just the one and used the time to relax and chill by the pool. Definitely recommended.
