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.

Views are spectacular and gardens lush and green. We stayed in the Manor House and couldn't fault our room or our view over the swimming pool to the historic house into the valley leading to the mountains. Staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The 3 course dinner menu was excellent and varied and breakfast more than satisfying. We would not hesitate to recommend Swartberg Country Manor.

Our long awaited family getaway culminated on New Year's eve as well as on New Years Day, and we were NOT dissapointed. Nestled against the spectacular Swartberg Mountain, on a working farm, it had ALL you could wish for! Beautiful accomodation, gorgeous pool and restaurant "Patat" (with a veranda to DIE for) dishing up food that you would wish to eat on your last day on earth.... The best thing about Swartberg Country Manor is their hosts (friends!) Riaan and Leoni and of course the rest of the competant and very friendly staff!

We stayed at Swartberg Country Manor for two nights early December. The gardens are well maintained and it offers beautiful scenery and an exquisite setting but the lodge itself is slightly dated (especially the bathrooms in the main house) and not quite as depicted on website pictures. It is also worth noting that the property is located in an isolated area in the Swartberg so when it rains for example there is not much to do at the actual lodge but one can drive to attractions like the Cango Caves and Oudtshoorn etc. The property has a lovely restaurant with good food options although small and limited menu. At R2000 per night we were disappointed with the accommodation (which included a good breakfast) but it was clean and Covid protocols were good. Lovely pool to use if weather allows. Managers of the property are extremely kind and helpful but could pay closer attention to detail eg. geyser for our room wasn’t switched on when we arrived, ceiling leaked during rainy weather etc. The lodge does offer solitude and a complete respite from city life but one night would have sufficed.
