#11 of 24 Specialty lodging in Clanwilliam
The farm Boskloof Swemgat is situated about 10 km from Clanwilliam 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 self-catering with warm farmstyle hospitality. Cottages are set along the river banks with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Five thatch-roofed cottages, 1 corrugated iron-roofed and 2 prefab cottages offer fully equipped kitchens, full bathrooms and bed linen and bath towels are provided. All cottages have indoor fireplaces and outside braai facilities. Wood is for sale on the farm for your convenience. Guests can enjoy swimming and fishing in the clear, unpolluted river, bring their mountain bikes or take on the hiking routes by foot. Children enjoy the farm animals and playing in the river with tubes. In Spring time wild flowers carpet the landscape. It is the ideal place for a family getaway, a romantic weekend, or some peace and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, as there are limited cellphone and internet reception. Make Boskloof Swemgat your base and explore the Cederberg, the coast at Lambert's Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam from here, or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of nature around you.

We stayed for 7 nights, having planned to walk around the Cedarberg area. The accommodation is 10km out of Clanwilliam, of which 8 are on a gravel road but perfectly manageable by ordinary car. Our cottage (Langhuis) was lovely and had its own stream for private bathing. The

We enjoyed our time - were able to come midweek so there weren't many other visitors. We enjoyed walking through the valley and the stillness of the space. Although it is close enough to Clanwilliam to buy food and such, it is entirely secluded. Kitchen was well-stocked but the
