Schoone Oordt

1 Swellengrebel St., Swellendam, Western Cape, 6740, South Africa

The ultimate luxury getaway, this renovated Victorian manor house, with original ceilings, wooden floors, and antique furnishings, boasts five-star accommodations. Eight double rooms, two family rooms, and a secluded honeymoon suite set in the lush gardens (separate from the manor house) have king-size beds, goosedown bedding, wool carpets, and restored Victorian baths. The Conservatory Restaurant, in the conservatory, serves dishes like saffron handcrafted pasta with black garlic and cinnamon pork ragu, locally sourced grass fed fillet with coffee glazed carrots and spiced chocolate brownie with toasted almond frozen yogurt—all made with locally sourced ingredients. Breakfast is a three-course affair, and afternoon tea is served with both sweet and savory home-baked goods. Activities nearby include hiking, a visit to a nearby lavender farm, horse riding, bike riding, and water sports. Rates are based on two people sharing.
