Schoone Oordt

Schoone Oordt Country House is situated between Cape Town and the Garden Route in the picturesque farming town of Swellendam. This much-photographed Georgian landmark is set within a large manicured grounds and its sun-kissed conservatory is home to the renowned Koornlands restaurant.

The eight luxury cottages and a honeymoon cottage are positioned around the grounds and each opens out to private patios

Enjoy relaxing strolls around the manicured lawns, secret woodland glades and the vegetable/herb gardens. Or simply unwind on a shaded deckchair beside the saltwater swimming pool.

Why we like it

The drive from Cape Town to the Garden route or the Karoo is best broken by a night in Swellendam. It makes for a relaxing journey and ensures a refreshed start.
