Your first choice in Swellendam B&B accommodation.

Cornfields River B&B are proud recipients of a finalist certificate in the Lilizela South African Tourism Awards for the Western Cape.

Swellendam is perfect for a two day stay over where the fit and adventurous can enjoy stunning hikes and horse riding in the Langeberg Mountains. The Bontebok Nature Reserve is also certainly worth a visit where one can see the indigenous buck of the Overberg area, and a visit to the Swellendam Museum is also a worth while experience.

For the hot and weary traveler we have large grounds and a 9m x 5m salt-water chlorinated swimming pool where you unwind and soak away under the African sun.

Anthony & Rebecca moved to Swellendam from Cape Town after selling their IT Software business, leaving behind their two daughters, Claire and Sarah, to study and marry, and dragging their two not-so-happy sons, Liam & Connor, to the country-side.

Why Swellendam? Well, we took a drive after watching a television program featuring country living, and discovered this beautiful town, the third oldest in South Africa. Swellendam has some spectacular attractions, where you can appreciate nature on foot, on horseback, and of course, with your camera. Places of note include Marloth Nature Reserve - beautiful walks, horse-riding, waterfall; Bontebok National Park, with buck and zebra; Wildebraam Berry Estate, which hosts a berry festival in the summer, sells all sorts of berry products, and fun-fact... Swellendam is the world's largest producer of youngberries. There is also the very interesting museum, where you can see workshops where the early settlers performed tasks that are now strange to us, like hide-tanning and horse-milling. Spend a few days here and you can take day-drives to the other beautiful little towns around us, like Montagu, Bonnievale, Barrydale.

So that was what awaited us here in the Overberg. After renovating our property, we took a few months off to relax and then started Cornfields River Bed and Breakfast in the first week of October 2016. We are absolutely loving life here in Swellendam with the relaxed lifestyle and the incredible friendliness of the locals.
