About
Description
Our beautiful farm is nestled in the picturesque Hermitage Valley, and situated just 2km's outside of Swellendam at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains. Our cottages are known for its spectacular views, More cleanliness, luxury beds and tranquillity. Abundant outdoor activities and pretty Berry Farms are just a stone throw away. Your hosts The Zaayman Family (Ma Nadia, Pa Spuy, Little Bro Zondagh & Tiny Sis Katryn) would love for you to share our little piece of paradise and stay a while in one of the 4 self-catering cottages on our farm. All cottages are comfortably furnished with all the necessities and you will be glad to know every one of them comes with an outside Braai area. We furthermore appreciate the importance of a good nights rest and all adult beds are equipped with only the best pocket spring mattresses for your sleeping pleasure. Two of the cottages are fitted with free WIFI for guests that simply can't go without. There are loads to see and do in and around Swellendam, the 3rd oldest town in South Africa (and once declared a Republic of its own!). We really have it all. So if it's just a quick visit passing through, business trip, a weekend away from it all or a long deserved holiday, Hermitage Huisies would love to accommodate all your needs. Less
