Arumvale is a country house situated in the Hermitage Valley, offering self-catering apartments and separate cottages in a pastoral ambiance just 2 km outside Swellendam. Our guest units boast indoor hearths for winter evenings gazing upon the snow-capped mountain peaks, and barbecue facilities for those who wish to enjoy the tranquility and serenity of the late summer evening sunsets. We also have a rustic farm cottage on our premises overlooking a dairy herd field adjoining the Klippe River, with electricity and gas heated hot water for an old world experience.

In addition to being surrounded by peaceful untrammelled nature, Arrumvale offers numerous outdoor activities within walking distance, including rock climbing, mountain hikes, bird watching, mountain bike trailing, canoeing, field rambling, swimming in the rock pools in the mountain gorge, horse riding in the Marloth Mountain Reserve, and historical heritage walking trails in one of the oldest towns in South Africa.

Further afield in the region, but within an hour's driving, is the De Hoop Coastal Reserve, where pristine flora and fauna exist abounded by the Indian Ocean and from May until September the Southern right whale can be viewed, the region's famous coastal resorts of Arniston, with its turquoise sea waters, and Cape Aghulhas, the southern-most point of Africa. We look forward to hosting you at our special country home.

Guest Comments

The visit was just too short but it was great.

We originally booked the rustic garden cottage for an overnight stay but was offered an upgrade to a more modern unit after the owner spotted some water damage to a wall caused by recent heavy rains. This gesture attests to the value the owners attach to providing their guests with quality accommodation. Although this unit is not freestanding, we still had our privacy and appreciated the pastoral views across the valley. You have the convenience of simply lighting the braai fire as everything required for the fire has been provided. The unit met all the criteria for a comfortable stay. In addition there are conveniences like Wi-Fi, a TV. This establishment provides a great stay overall.

We chose this venue oblindly so to say and what a pleasant welcome and stay we had for the weekend. Great service and friendly staff, beautiful setting and stunning views. Thanks George for a living experience for us town people.

We had a wonderful stay, it has the most beautiful view and the unit we stayed in is very up market and luxurious. We'll definitely book again.

Arumvale is an overall dream holiday destination, it's tranquil and serene environment really exceeded our expectations. The hosts were friendly and gave us a sense of warmth and homely feeling.
I was disappointed that it is rated a 4 star destination because we received 5 star treatment.
I would really encourage anyone who wishes to visit Swellendam to book a stay at Arumvale.
You will not be disappointed!

Thank you guys for a lovely holiday

Kindest regards,
