About Moolmanshof Bed and Breakfast

Moolmanshof Bed and Breakfast was built in 1798 is said to be the oldest house still standing in Swellendam. This classic example of a Cape Dutch style farmhouse is situated on the last remaining hectare of the original farm. Stroll around the park-like gardens, relax under the oaks and watch newly hatched owlets peering from their nest, or just cool off in the sparkling swimming.

Accommodation consists of three double en-suite rooms in the Manor House and self-catering accommodation is also offered in the restored old stables on the farm. Enjoy the privilege of actually sleeping in a National Monument. The Manor House has recently been restored and stylishly decorated to offer heritage accommodation with the unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere of a bygone era. It is here where old-world charm meets contemporary comfort.

Scrumptious farm breakfasts are also offered and the restaurant will soon be open for dinner. Moolmanshof Bed and Breakfast is wheelchair friendly and children and pets are most welcome.

Lizette and Estelle couldn't have made us more welcome.  The house is delightful, and so are the gardens.  The breakfast was terrific. So much thought had been put into every aspect.We had an excellent evening meal at the nearby hotel which Lizette recommended.

Had a great and relaxing stay. Our host, Lizette, was warm, friendly and extremely accommodating. The grounds are beautifully kept and provided much entertainment for our two-year old. The self-catering apartments have no TV or radio, which was great, as we really needed to unwind without disruptions.
