Description

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)

                  For a family of four with young boys, this was a great weekend getaway with enough activities to keep the kids busy. Beautiful hikes and great hosts, this farm stay will be one we will be returning to.

                  04 July 2013

                  Fantastic getaway place. Will definitely return. Our friends agree that it’s a place we should come back to soon. So much for the kids to do and places for the adults to “chillax”. Nice and close to Cape Town. Hikes were incredible, views breath-taking. Didn't give 5 stars because the bathroom in Loerie Cottage needs an upgrade (I believe this is currently being attended to).

                  21 August 2012

                  We were very warmly welcomed and enjoyed the breakaway. Everything was as in the pictures. We will be returning shortly.

                  30 January 2012

                  We spent the weekend in the Rose Cottage, five adults and a baby, and absolutely loved it. The cottage felt very private and all you could see was the meadows with cows and horses, the trees on the river bank and the mountains. We enjoyed swims in the river and the dam and had a go on the foefie slide into the dam, but didn't get a chance to use the canoes, do some fishing or take a walk to the waterfalls. Next time we'd like to try the Fish Eagle Lodge as, while not as private, looks more spacious and is right by the dam. All other facilities were great, such as the excellent braai facilities including wood and firelighters, comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen. We look forward to going back.

                  09 January 2012

                  This was a superb holiday venue, and very tranquil.
