The farm offers three self-catering, thatch-roofed cottages, 1 corrugated iron-roofed and 4 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.

In Room Facilities:

Seven 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. Some have indoor fireplaces and all have outside braai facilities.
Wood is for sale on the farm for your convenience.

Area Information:

The Cederberg Wilderness area comprises approximately 7 100 hectares and lies to the South-east of Clanwilliam. This remote, pristine area with its breathtaking natural beauty which includes a variety of fynbos and dramatic rock formations offers the visitor a unique wilderness experience. Generally, only walking and hiking is permitted in the area. For the less fit visitors there are more accessible places such as Stadsaal Caves with their famous Bushman-Elephant paintings. There is a range of accommodation facilities with a number of recreation options. This area forms part of the Cape Nature Conservation and operates out of Algeria, 30 km from Clanwilliam. The area is know internationally for its walking and hiking trails and is home to a variety of unique plant species such as the Cedar Tree. It is also the only place where leopards are protected.

Property Facilities:

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.

Pristine cottages in an idyllic setting. So very quiet, save for the sounds of bird calls, a donkey's bray and now and again the bark of the resident zebra. The roosters drop in for crumbs and treats, the donkey gives hugs and the resident ponies get up to mischief. There is a massive lawned area and a jungle gym for the kids, the swimming holes are magnificent and, for the less adventurous (or more lazy) there is a hidden hammock where you can catch up on a good book or some zzz's. All in all, an amazing break from real life. Cannot wait to go again.

Boskloofswemgat is the perfect place for a peaceful getaway. Beautiful venue, and highly recommend Nenna Cottage as it has the best fire place for views of the farm and mountains. Perfect spot for stargazing too.

We stayed at Hangnes for two nights and enjoyed the terrace with the nice view and the comfortable living room very much.

We stayed at Boskloofswemgat so that we could have a SHORT DRIVE T THE BIEDOUW VALLEY TO SEE THE SPRING FLOWERS.

The reception was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The farm area where the cottages are located, is beautiful as is the river.

However, the specific cottage we were allocated, Kliphuis, was dark, cold and dank. I cannot recommend it. The other cottages seemed very nice.

We had the most wonderful rest. We were made very welcome by our host Lizbie. The bird life is something to behold, even for the untrained bird watcher! The weather was wonderful the first two days so enjoyed the river which flowed strongly in front of our cottage. Just sad that two large water tubes arrived to late to laze on the river with. I highly recommend Boskloofswemgat as a place of relaxation and rest. Expect the cottages to be very basic in decor and equipment.

We decided to take a trip to see the spring flowers, and spend the night at Boskloofswemgat. We found the cottages to be very clean, and costy. As it was rather cold we made a fire in the inside fire place, which heated up very quickly. I would love to go in summer so we could swim in the river, and hike up the mountain.

We enjoyed the sunset over the dam.
The gravel roads were mostly in a fairly good condition.

Okay. 3 out of 5
