The Braeside is an absolute gem ! A beautiful Edwardian Dutch style house in gorgeous gardens set on a hill on the outskirts of Swellendam. We arrived in the early evening to the warmest of welcomes from the delightful owner Fiona. Our beautiful room and complimentary glass of wine made us realise this was indeed somewhere very special.
Breakfast on the verandah the following morning was a delight. We were very sorry indeed to leave !
Stay as long as you can - the Braeside is a jewel in South Africa's crown !
