About Swallows Nest

Swallows Nest is a private and newly built self-catering chalet that overlooks the Bell River Valley. It is surrounded by the beautiful Southern Drakensburg Mountains where the alpine flowers grow in summer and are covered with snow in winter time.

The chalet is on the property of Grace Hill Farm which is situated 4km east of Rhodes Village. It is on the route to the scenic Naude’s Nek pass which is the highest navigable pass in South Africa contouring all along the Bell River, home to wild trout and yellow fish.

Self Catering Accommodation

The chalet is fully equipped for self-catering with electricity and hot water. It offers an open plan bedroom with one double bed with white linen and feather down duvet, a lounge, kitchen and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The outside braai on the deck gives you a 180˚ view over the river valley and mountains.


One can truly relax here after a day filled with various activities. The area offers the following to choose from:
• Hiking
• Mountain biking (Rhodes Extreme route and others)
• 4 x 4 routes
• Rock art
• Birding (over 280 species identified)
• Fly fishing
• Horse riding
• A visit to the local brewery at Toeka’s
• Ski in winter at Tiffendell (24km from farm)
• Visit to the highest lodge in South Africa, Tenahead close to the origin of the Bell River.

For the less adventurous guests: take a leisurely stroll along the 1.5km stretch of the Bell River on the farm or enjoy a quiet picnic under one of the big willow trees on the way.
