Die Skuur at Bos­jes


Getaway (South Africa) - - The Final Cut -

Bos­jes, owned by the same fam­ily since 1831, is more fa­mous for its strik­ing Mod­ernist chapel and restau­rant than its guest house. But this fab­u­lous barn con­ver­sion, fur­nished by Liam Mooney with his inim­itable taste and flair, is an­other for the design an­nals. Com­pris­ing just five ul­tra-lux­u­ri­ous rooms hug­ging a fab­u­lous pool area with moun­tain views, the house is an ideal ex­clu­sive-use venue (it’s of­ten booked in con­junc­tion with the chapel for wed­ding par­ties) but is also avail­able on a per-room ba­sis. The restau­rant, Bos­jes Kom­buis, has some of the most beau­ti­ful views in the val­ley but it’s only open for lunch. Break­fast and din­ner, a two-course home-cooked meal such as bobotie or lasagne, are served in the guest house’s din­ing room. Given the qual­ity of fin­ishes and fur­ni­ture, and in­clu­sion of two meals, this is ex­cel­lent value and worth in­clud­ing here even if it is 20 min­utes from the river pools at Tweede Tol. ROOM TIP Room 5 sleeps three chil­dren or teens in a loft space. Only Room 3 doesn’t have a fire­place. COST R1 375 pp shar­ing half-board. CONTACT bos­jes.co.za
