 Sleeps 43
Check-in: 2:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM

Somerset Gift Getaway Farm lies in a beautiful valley bordering the foothills of the majestic Langeberg Mountains, just 16 kilometre from Swellendam. Combining an idyllic and peaceful setting, with stunning mountain views and green pastures dotted with Hereford cattle and horses, a spring water lake, and the Buffeljags River skirting the length of the farm, waterfalls and rock pools.

There is a choice of four gorgeous accommodation options to enjoy it all from: Fish Eagle Lodge (sleeps six in three spacious en-suite bedrooms), Loerie Cottage (two bedrooms)and Rose Cottage (two bedrooms both en-suite) both sleep four, and Olive Cottage (one bedroom), sleeps two. Common to all the above are fully-equipped kitchens, indoor fireplaces and outdoor undercover patio braais - firewood is available for sale (50 pieces are supplied free of charge). All linen and bath towels are supplied, but remember to pack your own swimming towel.

With an activity list longer than your arm, much of it water-based, you won't have a moment to spare: swimming in the lake, river or mountain pools, fishing and canoeing (it's possible to paddle to the Buffeljags Dam, an 8 kilometre return journey), easy walks through cool indigenous forest to the waterfalls and deep mountain pools, taking in the rich birdlife along the way.

Mountain hikes through majestic valleys also leading to waterfalls mountain pools. There is also an 10km mountain bike trail, a foefie slide and a pub on the water fitted with DStv. What's more, Swellendam and the coast is just up the road, with their own platter of restaurants and activities. "I think it is one of the most idyllic places I have yet discovered... it is a piece of paradise right in our back yard." (CEO Cape Town Tourism, Nov 2007)

We had the most amazing time at the farm, the cottage is thoughtfully and beautifully furnished. There was plenty to do on the farm, hiking, canoeing , ziplining... which we enjoyed thoroughly, young and old! Tanya, the manager of our cottage was very hospitable and friendly. We absolutely loved every minute and are looking forward to be back again

Wow wow wow, this place is such a gem. We stayed in the bushbuck (myself, hubby and our dog). It’s a perfect little spot- right size for us. The cottage really has everything you need. It’s right on the river. The views are magnificent. The signal is bad which is great for a breakaway. We just loved it and will return soon!

Very neat. Would have been great if the rose cottage had an enclosed garden for our dog

We stayed a couple of days at the Little Bushbuck Cottage and on our first morning, we knew we had arrived at a special place. The cottage itself is spacious certainly for two people (and the doggie which came along for his first ever vacation at 7 years old!) and cosy. What I loved most was the attention to detail and the obvious passion that has been poured into the place. There is a balance... Read more
