We had a big group of 15 staying at Boesmanskloof stone cottages and we absolutely loved it The cottages are so well equipped and the accommodation owners are very helpful We definitely want to make a yearly thing

Change nothing - a tonic for the soul, and a beautiful spot.Ruth a great hostess.Hint : if you do the trail, leave early and caution for the heat.

The accommodation is very basic (we stayed in the white cottages). The location is awesome - right on the Greyton to MacGregor hiking trail with incredible views down the valley. Pool was cool as was the bed on the stoep and the wind-sheltered braai area. Clean & tidy, though a little cramped and we did have some problems with water.

It was the perfect resting place after a day out in the trails. Rustic, but clean and very well equipped.

Ons het in huisies 1 en 2 gebly. Geriewe nie 5 ster, maar baie gerieflik met alles wat nodig is. Goot verskeidenheid proteas wat al blom is pragtig, sal dit graag wil sien wanneer in volle blom. Hier is selfs die voëls ook rustig, want mens hoor net af en toe een, terwyl die paddas en krieke blykbaar in die nag slaap, want 11 uur in die aand is dit doodstil. Te veel wandelpaadjies wat te min is vir `n naweek.
