Budget Getaways Review

Snuggled on the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains, just above Swellendam, A Hilltop Country Retreat is country decadence in its various forms: lush green lawns, the herby fragrance of lavender permeating the air, a splash pool, stylish accommodation, Egyptian linen... 

Your rooming options range from standard and luxury rooms sleeping two, and a pair of family suites that can sleep four apiece. The latter are free-standing and open-plan with a King bed and a set of bunk beds. Apart from these suites, you can also book one of two, two-bedroomed family-friendly houses that can sleep four or 6 guests. 

Each unit is kitted with a fully-equipped kitchenette, flatscreen satellite TV and DVD player and WiFi access. Most of the finishes and furnishings have been locally sourced from resident entrepreneurs and artists, lending a nice country originality to the place. 

Your stay at A Hilltop will begin with a steaming cuppa Jo and complimentary homemade rusks. If you find yourself in one of the family suites or houses, you can look forward to enjoying your afternoon tea in front of the fireplace.

All of the units have their own outdoor braai area and access to the splash pool. For an additional charge, your hosts will stock your fridge with an array of breakfast treats for you to prepare. Then again, Swellendam has an excellent network of eateries to explore...

If it's a homely spot with a large helping of luxury that you're after, look no further than this great find.

"We had a wonderful weekend at A Hilltop Country Retreat. They offer lovely rooms with everything you need. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to escape for a weekend away."

"Spent three weeks at A Hilltop and used this as a base to visit the Cape. Exceeded all expectations, great place for our small children."
