Swellendam Wedding Venues

Jan Harmsgat Guest Farm is one of the top Swellendam wedding venues and has seen a renaissance that captures its rich past, in a way that fits in with the discerning traveller’s needs: Space, charm and an unsurpassed opportunity to indulge in an authentic country ambience and history. Guests are treated to understated elegance and comfort, combining the power of its original meter thick walls, yellowwood details, and authentic ‘Overberg’ style while every modern convenience is available. The indulgence does not stop with the accommodation but is carried throughout your experience.

Granted as a ‘freehold farm’ in 1723, the historically significant buildings at Jan Harmansz schat (Jan Harmans Treasure) are featured in the writings of Lady Anne Barnard. The original meter thick walls and yellowwood details provide an authentic country experience filled with ambience, charm and history. Jan Harmsgat Country House offers ten beautifully decorated rooms which are situated in three different buildings.

The mountain views, vineyards, warm hospitality and delicious menu offering creates the perfect setting for your wedding, celebration or meeting. The main dining venue can host up to 50 seated guests for an intimate celebration or wedding, while the rolling lawns can accommodate larger groups for an outdoor function.

The Jan Harmsgat packages are extensive and offer various options to make every event special and memorable.
The tranquil country setting that surrounds all of Jan Harmsgat offers guests not only the peace to revitalize their spirit, but also a variety of wholesome activities to indulge in an authentic country ambience and history.
Jan Harmsgat also offers a Farm Drive experience that will have you sipping on their delectable, single block wines with views capturing the essence of the wine valley.

Jan Harmsgat is a true a gem within a gem.
