About The Longhouse Guesthouse
The charming Longhouse Guesthouse is the ideal place from where to explore the village of Clanwilliam, the rugged beauty of the Cederberg or the Atlantic Coast at Lamberts Bay, 60km to the west.
Dating back to 1810, this historic house is one of the two oldest surviving buildings in Clanwilliam and offers visitors an old-world elegance and charm.
