Country style charm at Jan Harmsgat

Country style charm at Jan Harmsgat

Jan Harmsgat Country House
Just outside Swellendam, along the picturesque R60 road, you’ll find Jan Harmsgat Country House nestled amongst Pecan trees with spectacular views of the Langeberg mountains. Not too long ago, I got to experience their hospitality thanks to a media trip put together by Hot Oven Marketing.

This Cape Dutch homestead has that authentic countryside charm combined with 5 star service and all the luxuries you could need. Small details make all the difference, like the beautifully packaged Rain bath goodies and discovering a toasty hot water bottle in my bed after our dinner.

Jan Harmsgat is in fact a working farm producing pecan nuts, pomegranates and grapes for their JHG wines. In the late afternoon we were taken on a drive in their Land Rover up to a scenic point on the farm to enjoy the 360 degree views. This was definitely a wine tasting to remember!

In the evening we sat around one of their bonfires which was a lovely experience, enjoying the crisp winter chill and starry sky which we don’t get to see in the city. Our dinner was outstanding and so I would absolutely recommend a meal here even if you’re passing through the area and not staying as a guest. The Pecan Pie is of course their specialty! Thanks to Jan Harmsgat for a wonderful stay!
