What a lovely surprise the Bokwagtershuisie was at the end of short mountain pass! Peace and quiet, beautiful views and everything inside to make it a chilled and cozy stay. It was a freezing time of year but no issue with a huge hearth slash braai, plus fireplace. Very well appointed kitchen with 2 fridges, washing machine and dishwasher. Loved the charming decor. We also went for a stroll along the river and would love to explore more hiking routes next time. The braai area at the river looks really welcoming - plus there is a canoe to meander down the river. Will definitely return in warmer weather. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!

Excellent stylish accommodation with beautiful surroundings for peace and quiet. The location is great, away from traffic and people in the middle of an oasis, it is great for relaxing and breaking away to rest and recoup.

We stayed at Middelplaas Cottage (part of the Matjiesvlei Cottages of the Scanell family) for three nights. This beautifully furnished renovated cottage was very clean, kitchen well equipped, with comfortable beds & good linen. Aircon in living room.We enjoyed the big veranda and tree at the front with lovely view. This was our favourite area. Also sat there star gazing every night with our binoculars. Wonderful that there are reading lamps at each bed. Also appreciated the files with info about the history of the valley and the people of the valley. It is such a beautiful valley. We enjoyed wonderful walks every day, there are different options. We did not swim in the river or use the canoes, but it was readily available. This cottage is within walking distance from the Gamka river. Lovely braai area next to the river and at the cottage. Will definitely go again. Do not plan any excursions out of the valley, rather spend your time there! (But bring enough food & wood, travelling to town is not really an option!)

If you're looking for a very clean, quiet get-a-way, just slightly off the beaten track, then this quaint air conditioned cottage is it. Plenty to do and see during the day in the Calizdorp/Swartberg area.
