“A good stop-over for the pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2017

We arrived very late, but were still welcomed. In the morning, breakfast was served on a decking looking across the valley. The gardens are perfectly maintained.
The perfect place to stay for the Cangoo Caves and the Swartberg Pass.

Everything about Swartberg Country Manor is exceptional. The location, food, service but most of all, the people. We only stayed two nights but when it was time to say our fairwells, everyone, include us, were sad to go. The restaurant, Patat serves the most incredible food, no need to go into town for dinner. Thank you......we will definately be back! Rene & Andre

Truly magic the stay in this property. The location first as the manor is nested at the footstep of the swartberg pass. The scenery is just breathtaking. The road heading to the manor is also worth the ride. Yes it is a bit far away from many things BUT aren't good thing and priceless pieces just around the corner? Yes it's worth making it special that make the experience a unique one.

For some of you who did not know that the manor also had a restaurant, there is a great one called Patat.
Attention to details, again the view of the restaurant, facing the mountain. The food was superb with diverse options. The staff was simply fantastic. The wine list - as far as I recall - was exactly what I wanted... great Sauvignon from SA to start then a Pinotage but they also serve Shiraz and other grapes.

The next morning - early riser normally when I travel to the western part of the world - breakfast was simple yet, serving freshly made products. Even though I was up at 6.45 am at the breakfast area, they helped me with all the things I wanted.

Places like the Swartberg manor should be on the top list of places to visit for its location, participation in developing the tourism in this part of Karoo region.

Many thanks to the team and Leonie and her husband for the hospitality and the path they indicated to reach Capetown - avoiding the nationals highways.

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
