Budget Getaways Review
Part of the wider Assegai Rest family, you'll find Boskloof Forest Cabin tucked under a secluded Alabama-style thicket of trees at the end of the Assegai Rest farm road (high clearance vehicle recommended).
It’s all about blissful isolation and getting back to nutty wheat basics at Boskloof - don’t even bother bringing your tech toys. Life here is off-the-grid, off-line and off the beaten track. Heck, there isn't even a cell signal to worry that work ulcer. It's nothing but you, the birds and the occasional antelope or zebra loping by.
The cabin is a rustic old-school affair - aka no percale linen and no familiar urban luxuries in sight. Instead, comfort comes via a simple and a lekker living area centred around an open Jetmaster fireplace. A bottle of OBs, a few good mates with personality, a charred piece of meat, you're all set to go.
The kitchen is well equipped and is open-plan to the dining area and lounge.
Sleeping-wise, you have three bedrooms sleeping six comfortably: a Queen, a double and a twin room. There are two shared bathroom, one with a bath, the other with a shower. Take note: You'll need to bring your own towels.
Boskloof is not "child" friendly, so best you leave the under 10's at home.
Outdoors, a full-length covered stoep lines the front of the cottage, and here too you’ll also find the braai area.
Days can be spent lazing about at the cottage, hanging in hammocks under trees or exploring Assegai Rest farm with its hiking trails and MTB options.
Simple, down-to-earth and uber easy-going, Boskloof Forest Cabin is well worth a weekend twirl.
"Beautiful and peaceful place to get away to. Inside fire place an absolute winner on cold nights. Loved our stay there."
(Bridget Oakes, visited May 2018)
"I must say there is no equal setting for a cabin like this one at the foot of the valley. The serenity and tranquility in the morning when the sun comes out is amazing; not to mention the hiking trails and the crisp mountain water to refresh you along the way. Everything you would need from a mountain cabin to be enjoyed alone or with someone special. What a lekker vibe! I will be seeing you soon Boskloof. Thumbs up!"

"If you love absolute silence and the rustle of wind in tree tops then this is the place for you. It's remote and completely private. the cottage is basic but comfortable. It's deep in the forest and the atmosphere is amazing."

"Great place to unwind and disconnect for a few days. Very well equipped and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay."
