SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE PLACES IN THE AREA

Swellendam in general has very nice restaurants and coffee shops, but some of our favourite places to visit are:

Keurbomen cheese shop. This cheese shop is very close to Vrede Vallei, on the R60 road.

There is a very nice market on a Saturday morning right next to the river in Swellendam. The market is opposite the NG church, next to Grace & Mercy coffee shop.

Grace & Mercy is a wonderful coffee shop to visit (we can highly recommend their strawberry milkshakes).

The Republic of Swellendam Restaurant is very nice for lunch or dinner. They also have their own craft gin, called Rebel Gin.

There are very nice walking trails at Marloth Nature Reserve.

Jan Harmsgat is the place to be for lunch, dinner or wine tasting. It’s very close to Vrede Vallei on the R60 road.

Spanspek se Plek is also a very nice coffee shop on the R60 road, close to Vrede Vallei.

Wildebraam Berry Estate (The berry picking is from November – December, but throughout the year you can do liqueur tastings and buy different relishes, chutneys and jams).

If you maybe want to go for a drive, Ashton (39km from Vrede Vallei) and Bonnievale (36km from Vrede Vallei) is not too far away for visits to different wine farms.
