Welcome to

Mardouw Country House

Swellendam, Western Cape

The 5 star graded Mardouw Country House, just outside Swellendam on the R60 between Ashton and Swellendam, is an idyllic venue for exclusive, accommodation and we also cater for intimate celebrations or corporate meetings. The Mardouw Olive Estate and its Manor House were renovated in 2002 by the Verder family.

The Country House offers accommodation in double rooms, deluxe suites and superior suites. The manor house also stands out with its spectacular views of the Langeberg mountains and also the Olive orchards that is used for their famous preserves, oils and now skincare.

For the real hiciologists the manor house boasts with its manicured gardens including a private rose garden and luscious lavender beds.

On that lazy summer days there is an infinity pool where guests can cool down and enjoy sundowners overlooking the magical sunset the valley has to offer.

For the more adventurist guest there is a hiking trail just behind the manor house that will take you all the way through the woods into the mountain gorge. Here you will have the opportunity to spot some unique fynbos species and also some indigenous bird life.

Be sure to book your next stay at this majestic Manor House when you are next time passing through and looking for a relaxed stay and some majestic magic.
