Baardskeerdersbos is a small town in the Overberg region of the Western Cape province of South Africa and is located 20 kilometres east of Gansbaai on the Gansbaai Elim Bredasdorp road. The town lies on the southern slopes of a mountain called Perdekop (Horse Hill), at the base of the Boskloof (Forest Gorge) through which a small river flows south off the mountain. The name of the town, Baardskeerdersbos in Afrikaans or Baardscheerders Bosch in the original Dutch, literally means Beard Shavers Forest. The accepted explanation for this name is that a species of solifuge inhabits the area, and that this arachnid is referred to as a beard shaver because it cuts hair to use for nest-building.
The current church in Baardskeerdersbos was built in 1921 and is a National Monument. For a long time the village remained rural and undisturbed, but recently it has been discovered as a quiet getaway particularly for residents of Cape Town, several new houses have been built, and several more renovated.
This little town has also attracted attracted a collection of artists and since 2008 the group have opened their homes and their hearts t various times during the year to introduce people to the local painters, photographers, sculptors, printmakers and ceramicists. One artist in particular, Niel Jonker has also added bread making courses to the mix, to give the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route an extra bit of flavour.
