Bovlei Guest Farm
About Bovlei Guest Farm
Bovlei Guest Farm is located a mere 10 km from Clanwilliam in the peaceful and tranquil Boskloof Valley, surrounded by the majestic Krakadouw and Cedarberg mountains. The farm has been in the same Nieuwoudt family for several generations, all farming with citrus, and therefore many valuable memories have been created under the giant oak trees, around the fireplaces and on the lawn in the shade of Toringkop. Next to the old farmhouse is an old mill yesteryear used by the farmers of the kloof to mill flour for bread.
Self-catering accommodation at Bovlei is provided in the 100-year-old farmhouse which offers four double rooms, plus the extra option of a separate two-bedroom flat. It is an ideal getaway for more than one family for a relaxed and peaceful outing.
The spectacular scenic beauty of the flower season is available all around the farmhouse, however guests can also explore Lamberts Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam, where several water sport facilities are available. The well-known hiking trails to Toringkop, Krakadouw Mountains, God’s Window and the Biedouw Valley start at our front door.
Other than gorging on life’s good things, Bovlei offers guests swimming in the Jan Dissels River or a hike across the river to God’s Window at Platberg. You may be the lucky one to spot a leopard or even just its footprints. The Boskloof Valley is rich in bird life and 76 different bird species have already been spotted in the area.
No credit card facilities. Rates vary according to the number of guests and a minimum tariff may apply.
