About Us

The late Mr. George Herman Mauchle a hard working Swiss man started the farm over five decades ago together with his family. In the year 2000 he decided to share his beautiful farm with all of you by building the amazing cottages that you can all visit and enjoy. Over the years Swiss Farm Cottage has been expanded to become a tranquil place with a picturesque scenery.

Our district is rich with heavy green vegetation, exciting woods and fields to explore, breath taking waterfalls, discover the different species of birds, spot the rare and shy Colobus monkeys, see the fascinating double horned chameleons, breathe the freshest air and marvel at the quiet streams of water flowing.


Provides a good communal area where you can eat drink and mingle. Savour the flavour of good organic local foods fresh from our farm and neighboring surroundings.


Relax & Rejuvenate

These rooms provide you with an amazing view of our green rocky hills and bright gardens, with the chirping sounds of different species of birds and the sight of colourful butterflies. We guarantee you a peaceful and quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities.

A lovely placeYou will want to stay here foreverAmazzzing Place!
A fitting name for the hotel. It does feel like you're in Switzerland. Staff is really helpful and food very tasty. We visited with family and totally enjoyed the peaceful environment and lush greenery, especially after coming from the city. We had a very good time and cant wait to visit again.
A lovely place
The first time I came alone, was so taken aback with the beauty and not to mention the sumptuous food. Within two weeks i brought my whole family here. My childres loved the place so much that we had to add it to our yearly gateaway place. The cottages are clean and quite big to accomodate a big family. The waiters are very friendly and accomodating always have a welcomming smile. It is a fantastic place for a family stay and getting away from city and this crazy heat.
You will want to stay here forever
We were here for the Easter break.Stayed for 3 nights and we really enjoyed. Everything from the magnificent view to the rooms and the food is just perfect. The service was excellent! Kudos to the staff of Swiss Farm, they made our stay very comfortable serving us with a smile! Also a very different experience from the standard hotel service we usually get.. a home away from home with all the hotel facilities.
