Area Information:
The picturesque little town of Swellendam is just off the N2 about 240 km outside of Cape Town and connects the Southern Overberg with the Garden Route.
Swellendam lies at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains and has become popular in recent times as a place to retire and as a retreat for artists seeking a lifestyle outside of the city rat race. One of the oldest settlements of colonial times, Swellendam is seeped in history and buildings such as the Drostdy date back to the time when Swellendam was declared a magisterial district in 1743 and named after Governor Hendrik Swellendgrebel and his wife, Helena Ten Damme.
The Tourism Bureau in Swellendam provides a brochure, aptly entitled ‘Swellendam Treasures’, full of appealing snippets of information about the various National Monuments in Swellendam and the surrounding area and the Drostdy Museum is definitely worth a visit to ogle the amazing collection of late 18th and early 19th century Cape furniture.
Today Swellendam, apart from being a peaceful and certainly an appealing town with its numerous restaurants and pubs that make it such a popular stop-off en route to the Garden Route, is also a flourishing agricultural village.
Swellendam is the largest youngberry growing area in the world, due mainly to the unique microclimate of the Hermitage valley just a few kilometres outside of Swellendam, and includes farms such as Wildebraam Liqueur farm, which offers liqueur tasting and a cellar tour. The foot of the Langeberg is home to a number of fruit and dairy farms whilst the dryer and flatter region, further in from the mountain, is predominantly sheep and grain farming.
Only 6 km outside of Swellendam is the Bontebok National Park, home to the rare and beautiful antelope of the same name and dedicated to saving it. 126 different species of bird have been identified here and there are other small buck and charming picnic spots on the banks of the Breede River. The Marloth Nature Reserve offers gorgeous examples of the local wild flowers and fynbos and the hiking trails alone make it worth the visit. The 81 km Swellendam trail provides a number of stopover huts at regular intervals and there are several day walks.
Swellendam has retained its ability to refresh both gastronomically and cerebrally - it began its life as a refreshment station for those undertaking the rather tedious journey up the coast - with the beauty of its surroundings and the fine fare provided by its coffee shops and restaurants.

In Room Facilities:
Fully equipped kitchen. The lounge is comfortable and leads onto a small veranda. Experience a working farm and let the kids enjoy the farm animals.

We had a great short stay at Appelsbosch Farm Cottage. It has been very well appointed and equipped - very comfortable and relaxed with wonderful views of farmland, forest and mountains. You have the feeling of being completely away from it all but it’s only a short drive to Swellendam where you can get everything you want.
Highly recommended.

Superb. 5 out of 5

It's not often that you visit a new place and its all and more than what you've expected.
Applebosch Farm was just what we needed. The facilities was in good taste. I think what was so cool we could choose between typical farm house experience or just a few meters away farm experience with touch of modern
Our host as well as her team was phenomenal. With all our needs and requested they responded promptly and met it with delight. Everyone I met at this venue that forms part of this facility was courteous and pleasant. As a family we definitely going back.
Thank you Susan for making my anniversary a memorable one. The lindt gift was most inviting. A glims of heaven that I will recommend without reservation.
Regards
Adrian and Natasha.
Ps. It's not always that people have the finances to enjoy the needed things in life like a break away. The price i found was the cheapest around and made it affordable for us to have a blessed time away as pastor's.
Thank you to Susan and her husband for making this possible.
