Boskloofswemgat is a beautiful small farm in the unspoiled Boskloof Valley, some 10km from Clanwilliam, at the foothills of the Northern Cederberg mountains.
The farm offers five self-catering, thatch-roofed cottages, 1 corrugated iron-roofed and 2 quaint prefab cottages, all situated on the banks of the Jan Dissels River with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
It is the ideal place for a family getaway, or a romantic weekend.
Explore the farm roads on foot or mountain bike, fish and swim in the unpolluted river and be awed by the stars in the clear night skies above you.
Make this your base and explore the Cederberg, the coast at Lambert's Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam from here, or simply relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature around you.
The farm Boskloofswemgat is situated in the Boskloof Valley, a magnificent unspoiled area, bordering on the Cederberg Wilderness Area . The Jan Dissels river flows through the valley and the farm was named for a favourite river pool or "swemgat".
The accommodation is set along the river banks and guests can enjoy swimming and fishing in the clear, unpolluted river.
Other activities include mountain biking and hiking, on farm roads or longer hikes - the start of the Krakadouw Trail being near here. You can also do the rewarding hike to "Die Toring", a nearby peak - about 4 hours there and back.
In Spring the valley turns into a spectacle of riotous colour when wild flowers carpet the landscape as far as the eye can see.
Eight whitewashed cottages set in the tranquil farm landscape offer the ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
All are well equipped, have full bathrooms and good quality bed linen and towels are provided. All the cottages have indoor fireplaces and outside braai facilities.
Wood is for sale on the farm for your convenience.
