Moolmanshof (1798): Manor House, Traditional Cape Dutch H-Shaped Farmhouse.
Said to be the oldest house still standing in Swellendam, also the first Guest House in Swellendam and a National Monument.
All three rooms in the main house have original yellow wood ceilings and beams; yellow wood and stinkwood doors; extra wide yellow wood window sills. Floors are either Oregon pine or Yellow wood.
The original stables of the old farm have been converted into three comfortable Self Catering Units.
Strolling through the gardens is a delightful experience. Little unexpected signs, gorgeous flowering bushes, a personable scarecrow and ancient trees lure you down verdant pathways. Or just cool off and relax in the private little swimming pool under the oaks, watching little owlets peering from their nest. The house is set back from Voortrek Street, Swellendam’s main road, previously “ Die Ou Kaapse Wapad”, ( The Old Cape Wagon Road).
