Schoone Oordt’s ample grounds house all you require for a totally relaxing, exclusive and luxurious escape echoing the beautiful mansion’s grand and slightly eccentric past. On a cold Winter’s night warm yourself with a hot beverage by the fire and a good book from our small library or your favourite DVD on a large cleverly disguised flatscreen TV or simply ‘kuier’ a while with fellow guests in the warm & cosy bar, lounge. On a hot Summer’s Day slip into the cool saltwater swimming pool, or lounge in the shaded deckchairs whilst snacks and drinks are served. The sun-kissed conservatory is the ideal place to indulge in one of Schoone Oordt’s lovingly prepared breakfasts, deliciously divine dinners or the perfect venue to host an intimate wedding or special event.

We know how important your wedding day is to you and as such, we tailor-make and oversee each and every detail to ensure that your wedding is unique, seamless and memorable not only for you but every single one of your guests too.

Choose from the secluded gardens, the lush & large circular lawn, the intimate & private boardroom with views of the mountains, the light and airy conservatory overlooking the grounds or the cosy & slightly more formal dining room in the grand old house to host your champagne breakfast, gourmet lunch, decadent high tea or delectable dinner reception. Each wedding or function requires the exclusive reservation of the entire property for a minimum of two evenings to ensure complete privacy and undivided attention.

We would love to tailor make a wedding/function package to suit your individual needs, so please do contact us for some ideas to get you started.

Twenty adults can be accommodated in king size or twin beds– all extended length. Children are welcome and can be accommodate in the family suite, on sleeper couches in the luxury / standard suites, or if they are babies, in a camper cot.

The Wedding Ceremony may be held on any special spot around our property or you can make use of one of the many beautiful churches in Swellendam, most of which are within walking distance of Schoone Oordt. Our unfinished boardroom is a popular choice as a “rustic chapel”.

As a reception venue, we traditionally use the Conservatory restaurant for seated functions of up to 50 people. Alternatively the circular lawn has plenty of space for a free form tent.
