Architect, Gilbert Colyn
who also designed the Conservatoire of Music at the University of
Stellenbosch which is deemed one of the finest conservatoires in the
world, sensitively transformed the badly neglected buildings, a
stable, barn and old farm house, estimated at being approximately
230 years old, into three upmarket chalets situated between the
orange groves and with magnificent views to the mountains. At Klein
Boschkloof the silence and tranquillity can be felt.
With the town and all its modern day amenities in close proximity,
Klein Boschkloof is the ideal base from where the Cederberg,
Lambert’s Bay, Elands Bay, the mission station at Wupperthal,
Namaqualand and many other small towns along the N7 national road
can be explored.
Klein Boschkloof is ideal for a peaceful weekend away from the
hustle and bustle of city life, a family get together, intimate
wedding or that birthday party away from it all.
Every year at spring (August – October) the environment surrounding
Klein Boschkloof changes from a semi desert to one that shares in a
colourful display of wild flowers.
San rock paintings, Rooibos Tea farms, the legendary Strassberger
Shoe factory, nearby Bird Island, world renowned rock formations and
an assortment of other places of interest are worth a visit. For the
more energetic visitor, Clanwilliam offers an annual triathlon
(October), hiking trails, swimming, cycling, mountain climbing,
bouldering, horse riding, water sports and fishing at the
Clanwilliam Dam. Or . . . explore the area by air from one of The Red T
Company’s various aircrafts.
Clanwilliam has a very moderate winter climate with champagne
evenings from May to October.
No pets allowed: No credit card facilities: Safe parking: Shared
Continental breakfast - at prior notice - is available on request.
