Stay at Jan Harmsgat Country House near Swellendam, South Africa, offering guest house lodge accommodation. 5 Star Wedding Venue in the Overberg.

Jan Harmsgat Country House is the perfect stop-over spot, near Swellendam, Western Cape, especially when you’re journeying across South Africa. Located on the R60 highway off the N2, it’s a short two hour drive from Cape Town as you head to the magnificent Garden Route.

Set on the working Jan Harmsgat Guest Farm, it encapsulates country charm and a rich history. You’ll immediately notice the understated elegance and comfort present throughout the 10 exclusive rooms, each individually styled and spread across three buildings. An authentic Overberg influence marries beautifully with modern conveniences and furnishings, so that you get the best of both worlds during your stay. The original metre-thick walls and yellow wood details are a fitting nod to the past.

Enjoy a scrumptious breakfast each morning and indulge in delicious lunches and dinners (created using produce grown on the farm) at the fine-dining restaurant on the property. Jan Harmsgat is famous for its kudu fillet, baked goods and preserves, so you’re in for a treat.

If you’re looking to experience an authentic country ambience, then this is the place for you – it’s undoubtedly where quiet luxury meets rustic country charm.

We would love to host your wedding at Jan Harmsgat Country House, and if you’re looking for warm & friendly farm hospitality, we are the ideal venue.

Jan Harmsgat Country House is TGCSA 5-Star rated and all children of all ages are welcome.
