About

The key to Bredasdorp Country Manor’s charm lies in the highly personalised service of live-in owner Anna-Maré Human, who gets fully involved in the workings of this immaculately run establishment.

Anna-Maré achieved a lifelong dream after buying and renovating the 1922 manor and opening its doors to guests in 2009. The same small, passionate team that started out at the guest house is still making guests smile today.

Anna-Maré cooks the breakfasts herself and ensures that the country hospitality extended to guests allows them to enjoy their stay and experience the best attractions of the Overberg region.

It is evident that the interior decoration has also been carefully chosen, with antique furniture and colourful French styling, along with many interesting artefacts and art pieces, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Considering the significant opulence offered, Bredasdorp Country Manor is one of the best value-for-money establishments in the area.

The five spacious guest rooms are individually decorated and showcase modern elegance and old-world charm. The Red Room has Oregon pine floors and antique furniture that exudes French country flair. Guests can enjoy views of the well-tended gardens from the Garden Room, the light and clean-cut nature of the Nautical Room or the eccentric antiques of the Travellers Room.   

The Bridal Suite is particularly special, allowing brides to prepare for their big day or glowing couples to enjoy a romantic, private experience complete with a Jacuzzi, petals and champagne.

Facilities in the rooms, such as a heater, fan, wireless internet, hot-water bottles, electric blankets for winters, tea/coffee facilities and complimentary rusks, make for a comfortable stay.

For relaxation outside the rooms, the lounge area with its comfy couches has satellite television, an indoor barbecue area and a fridge and ice machine for preparing refreshments. The tasty home-cooked breakfasts prepared by Anna-Maré are savoured in a sunny dining room with a fireplace, while, outdoors, guests can relax in the seating areas, patios and loungers of the beautiful garden or take a plunge in the swimming pool. 

For lunch and dinner, your host will guide you to the best restaurants in the area, and will give information on the Overberg’s best attractions, including the unique Shipwreck Museum, the nine-hole golf course, Napier, Cape Agulhas and the De Hoop Nature Reserve.

Overberg

Western Cape

About

The Overberg is a region that’s easy on the senses and pleasing to the eye. Its landscape is a tapestry of colours and meandering patterns, both natural and manmade. 

The region forms a relatively small part of the Western Cape; it is mostly rural, and is blessed with stunning scenery and unique highlights. Its largest town, Hermanus, is said to provide the best land-based whale watching in the world. It also has exquisite beaches, including the blue flag Grotto Beach, and the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde Valley epitomises the majestic beauty of the region.

Across Walker Bay, the towns of Gansbaai and Kleinbaai are best known for shark cage diving to see great whites at the hotspot near Dyer Island.

L’Agulhas stands at the southernmost point on the African continent, and is the meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

The Overberg fauna and flora is protected in the Bontebok National Park, and its nature reserves include De Hoop, De Mond, Salmons Dam, Marloth, and the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. Staying with wildlife, the penguin colony at Stony Point in Betty’s Bay is also a tourist favourite.

Swellendam and the small mission towns of Genadendal and Elim are amongst the Overberg’s historic icons. Others that are popular with visitors are Greyton, Stanford, and Napier.

In summer the farmlands are dominated by shimmering shades of brown, the fields stripped of their winter crops and the bare earth ploughed into meandering combed patterns dotted with tightly compressed wheels of straw awaiting collection. Labourers’ cottages hunker down beneath old blue gums and on a cold day smoke drifts from their chimneys.

Throughout the year the early morning and late afternoon sun accentuates the sensual curves of the ridges wreathed in fynbos. When the winter rains return, the undulating, sometimes tiered fields shrug off their brown and slip into the vibrant greens of wheat, barley, and oats, and the brilliant yellow of the iconic canola. On still, sultry mornings, blue cranes, South Africa’s national bird, float overhead craaaaaaking as they go.

The coastline is punctuated by long sweeping bays and rocky outcrops that fringe the southern boundary of this landscape. Here one can spend hours sitting on the white sand, being mesmerised by the eternal activity of the sea.

Add to this a scattering of charming inland villages; locally produced beer, cheese, and wine; lighthouses, bird watching, and wonderful food, and it becomes evident why one needs plenty of time here.

Look out for

Southern-most tip of Africa - at L’Agulhas, which is also the official meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. 

Shark cage diving - near Gansbaai there are several operators who do trips daily out to the Great Whites’ favourite hunting grounds near Dyer Island. 

Whale watching - the Overberg offers great land-based and boat-based whale watching (best between July and November). 

Beaches - the Overberg beaches are amongst the finest in South Africa. They include the longest beach in the southern hemisphere - at 14km - which curves along the coast at Struisbaai. 

Swellendam - is the third-oldest magisterial district in South Africa. At the base of the Langeberg Mountains on the N2 highway the town has an array of historic buildings including the Drostdy Museum.

Hermanus - On the coast in the west of the region. It is the largest town in the Overberg and popular with visitors all year round. It’s especially well known for its superb land-based whale watching.

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - near Hermanus - this scenic area produces a range of wines and is known for its Pinot Noir.

Bontebok National Park - The smallest of South Africa’s National Parks, it not only protects the fauna within its boundaries but also endangered flora in the fynbos biome. In addition to the bontebok, the park is also home to Cape mountain zebra, red hartebeest, grey rhebuck, and Cape grysbok as well as 200 bird species. There are hiking and mountain-biking trails and fishing and swimming in the Breede River. The accommodation and campsite are situated at Lang Elsie’s Kraal amongst a riverine thicket of trees and aloes near the banks of the Breede River. This consists of 10 self-catering chalets with wheel chair access, and caravan and camping sites. There are also picnic spots with braai and ablution facilities for day visitors.

De Hoop Nature Reserve - Each year between June and November whales return to the rugged coastline of this 34 000 hectare reserve near Bredasdorp to breed. During this time the marine reserve supports 40% of the world’s Southern Right whale population. Although these may be the drawcard for many visitors there is much more in the line of nature-based activities for the visitor. Lowland fynbos is the dominant vegetation throughout the reserve and this supports bontebok, Cape mountain zebra, grey rhebuck, eland, and baboon, as well as many smaller mammals. It’s a great destination for ‘twitchers’, with the De Hoop vlei attracting a large number of water birds and pushing the recorded species to an impressive total of 260. Besides being able to walk anywhere in the reserve there are several day hikes and the popular 5-day whale trail. Accommodation options are varied from cottages and rondawels to restored houses and neat camping and caravan sites amongst the milkwood trees. Most accommodation is around what is known as Die Opstal near the fresh water vlei and park reception.

Wines - The region has some top class wineries that offer tasting and sales.
