      We stayed for 3 nights at Boshoek Bass cottage. It was an amazing experience for us all including the boys (4,9,11) who could run around the farm, climb mountains, helping with the fires! The views on the farm is unbelievable, and walking to the dam a MUST. Although the house does not have electricity, it is sufficiently geared with oil lamps, gas stove, gas fridge and gas geysers for hot water. The anthracite stove was definitely the best. Once you get the hang of operating it, a kettle continuously boiling and heat in the kitchen remains a winner during the cooler days and evenings. With...

      What a wonderful weekend away! The beautiful natural scenery of the Eastern Free State is the best-kept secret. Mountains, valleys, rivers, cosmos, beautiful scenery wherever you look.

With a fireplace inside, an old stove in the kitchen, fireplace outside plus braai area outside, you have no excuse to be cold. Our hostess, Zanet, is extremely gracious, warm and helpful - thank you Zanet for even...

      We had a lovely stay at Boshoek. A real old farm house with a lovely fireplace and a coal stove for warmth, gas for hot water, a cold fridge and cooking. Two big tables in the kitchen and dining room and a cosy sitting room provide ample opportunity for conversation. Best part was the morning coffee on the north facing stoep early in the morning with the most beautiful view over the mountains.

      What a gorgeous old sandstone house!Two days were definitely too short. We enjoyed lovely walks, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and the quiet surroundings. Boshoek is the perfect place to relax!

      Ons kuiertjie by Boshoek Bass Cottage was 'n verkwikking vir die gees, siel en liggaam. Dankie Zanet vir jou gasvryheid, en 'n baie spesiale dankie aan Stephen wat ons in die donker tot by ons bestemming vergesel het. Boshoek het ons harte verower - ons kom BESLIS weer terug...
