A Little Town Called Barrydale...
Where Is Barrydale?
Nestled within the folds of the ancient Langeberg Mountains, Barrydale is situated in the fertile Tradouw Valley where the northern exit of Tradouw’s Pass meets the R62 from Worcester, Robertson and Montagu. Barrydale lies on the border of the Overberg and the Klein Karoo and is one of the 7 small towns that form the Republic of Swellendam. Barrydale has often associated with the ancient history and landscape of the succulent Klein Karoo, although this is geographically inaccurate as this special piece of land supports unique features of its own.
Given Barrydale’s location between two contrasting landscapes, one can certainly imagine the staggering natural diversity that surrounds the village. It forms part of the Klein Karoo Wine Route, the longest wine route in the world. It is also located on the popular Route 62 that was modeled after the iconic Route 66 in the USA and made famous in popular culture by the late Nat King Cole with a song by the same name.
With such close proximity to nature and the endearing quirkiness that characterizes Route 62, Barrydale is a perfect base from which to explore the majesty of the Klein Karoo. Barrydale is a tiny town with a huge heart and an offbeat spirit that captivates the traveler to stay longer.
