Welcome to our guest house.

Situated in the beautiful Overberg valley you will find our well-appointed guest house which is set apart by the rich history and romantic mystery that surrounds the Battenberg family that settled in Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa, about 170 years ago.

The House

With us you will experience a delightful, character filled experience where we go out of our way to make you feel at home or just enjoy the comfort of the air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi, DSTV, and bar fridges. Our accommodation offers Luxurious fabrics, custom built furniture and spacious showers.


In the heart of Swellendam.

Battenberg’s Self Catering is located exactly between Cape Town and the Garden Route, making it the perfect resting place for tourists and travellers moving along the N2. We are also in walking distance from numerous historical buildings, restaurants, gift shops and 200 metres from Swellendam Tourism Information Office.


Things to do in Swellendam and the surrounds

Swellendam is the perfect base from which to explore the Overberg region and Battenberg’s Self Catering is centrally located in the prettiest street in town. For hiking and outdoor activities, check in at Marloth Nature Reserve or Bontebok National Park. Adventure into the forests and hillside landscapes on horseback, with Two Feathers Horse Trails. For the history buffs, a visit to the Drostdy Museum is a must.
