I have had one of the best retreats at Arumvale ever. George, the host, and his team was perfect and took care of everything. My suite, Marlette, was perfect & stocked with enough wood to keep the cold out. Everything about it was just what I needed. With the views of the Langeberge and the sounds of water running gave a tranquil feeling. This was really a time to just rest without hearing or seeing cars in a concrete jungle. This is definitely going on my Favourite List.

This place is beautifully tucked away at the foot of the majestic Langeberg Mountains. The view is spectacular. The fresh air and silence is medicine for the soul. This is a piece of heaven if you are in need to break away from the city. The staff is very kind and helpful.

We stayed in the tranquil little rustic garden cottage, and had a wonderful stay. The hosts were very friendly and we enjoyed the beautifully renovated cottage that had a splendid view of the mountains behind Swellendam and some scenic green fields. All amenities we could ask for, were there and more. Would definitely recommend!

What a little piece of paradise in the Hermitage valley! We spend three nights in Anneline garden cottage at Arumvale and cannot recommend it highly enough. The cottage itself has everything one might need for a cosy winter getaway and more. The braai was set with new wood, charcoal and firelighters each evening and we received a gift of beautiful fresh laid eggs courtesy of the resident hens. The views are spectacular and although we had a lazy stay in mind, there are gorgeous looking walks. Thanks to Eskom we spend all three evenings in darkness but firelight and lamps made even this tolerable, George was busy laying foundations for a new bay window so we'll be back to see it soon! Thanks to George and Carol for sharing your beautiful Arumvale with us
