About Swinford Manor
This delightful wooden chalet, nestled in between milkwood trees and built on the banks of the Touw River in Wilderness, is a wonderful holiday home.
It boasts stylish and functional furniture and can sleep 8 persons including children. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a lounge, dining room and fully kitted kitchen as well as large deck and a balcony overlooking the river. There is also a communal pool area.
The Wilderness, in the Western Cape of South Africa, is renowned for its beautiful sea and mountain views and wonderful hiking trails. So come and stay, have a sundowner on the deck or go canoeing on the river at dawn but most of all come to relax.
Family friendly: Our establishment is family friendly and has a communal pool and play area for children. Care needs to be taken because the house is next to a river.
Romantic: The unique romantic vibe we offer is the balcony view of the river. This is where the sun rises in the morning and it has a spectacular view. In the evening flocks of egrets fly past to roost which can be a magical experience to share.
Please email us a copy of your ID document or passport.
