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.

We only stayed one night at the Swartberg Country Manor, the scenery was spectacular. We had dinner there, which was excellent, as was breakfast. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our time there, although it was too short.

An unplanned but one of the most pleasant trips Ive done to date. Beautiful scenery, this hidden jewel was highlighted by an incredible restaurant that puts out 5 star dishes that compete with Michelin star restaurants.

Beautiful stay on a working farm at the bottom of the Swartberg pass and near the Cango Caves. Staff were pleasant and helpful, dinner was great but a bit pricey, room comfortable. Breakfast was great, served on the restaurant patio overlooking the mountains. Will recommend this for a fine place to stay to as a base to explore the region

Stopped over for one night whilst driving from Great Karoo back down to Cape Town whilst stopping off at Cango Caves (15 mins away). Beautiful setting, rooms were lovely and clean and spacious. Food was amazing. A special call out to Mornay who was a great host who was extremely hospitable. Recommend.

This hotel complex was surrounded by exceptional scenery and so close to the Swartberg pass that you could almost see the summit! The hotel was very quiet but that in no way affected the quality service we received nor the attitude of the Manager on duty Mornay who was super efficient and so friendly. A great place to stay before the sheer pleasure of driving over the pass in the morning sun. Definitely a destination stop over.

Stunning views, and great value for money. Excellent meals, and professional, friendly staff, with attention to detail. I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent choice of wines . We were made to feel very welcome, but not intrusive, and it was a very pleasant weekend. Will definitely recommend..

Awesome stay and perfect location to ride the Swartberg Pass. Great breakfast and dinner to refuel, and prepared breakfast pack for us to take with when we left very early in the morning. Beautiful views from the property and staff friendly and effective.
