Area Information:
The village of Clarens lies at the foot of Mount Horeb, on the Free State Highlands Route close to the Golden Gate National Park. One of the most popular holiday towns in the Eastern Free State, its location inspires not only its own residents but everyone who stays there.

An easy three to four hours' drive from Johannesburg, Clarens has become the long weekend mecca of those after an arty, sleepy hollow with just enough entertainment not to be dull.

The town that first enjoyed a revival when it became something of an artists' haven during the early nineties is now premium second home property. It helps that it lies in a particularly scenic spot, surrounded by Rooiberge and the Maluti Mountains a little further southeast; its tree-lined streets and enticing restaurants, art galleries and boutique style stores a reason to amble away the weekend in the town's square.

There is no shortage of accommodation in Clarens in the form of guest houses, self-catering establishments, lodges and B&Bs in the area, and nature-loving activities in particular are what attract those who enjoy the great outdoors. There is horse riding, hiking, fly fishing, abseiling, white water rafting and golf. There are caves to visit, San paintings to explore, rocks to climb, and local restaurants offer live music over weekends.

Many of the homes and buildings in Clarens are built using local sandstone, giving them a particular appeal. The Artists' Amble is a route that takes in the local art galleries run by and supplied by local artists.

In Room Facilities:
Each room has tea and coffee-making facilities. The bed linen is luxury crisp white percale and soft towels are provided for each guest. Each bedroom has a heater, electric blankets and extra blankets for those chilly winter nights and both bathrooms have a heater. Fans are also provided for hot summer days. The country style open-plan kitchen and dining room upstairs have wonderful views of the property and mountains. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas stove and convection oven, a fridge and freezer and microwave. Full DStv is provided upstairs. A cast iron fireplace with wood provided for cosy winter evenings.

Clarens is a beautiful quaint little town. It has everything you could possibility need, gorgeous gift shops, restaurants with delicious food and a craft brewery all set in the majestic mountains. It's the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Must visits : The Purple Onion, which is a deli kind of store. Clarens Brewery is a must, the beer & ciders are great and the food menu is limited but fantastic. Also Red Stone Distillery has a great range of gins and there cocktails are also great. The Art Cafe is fantastic restaurant if you have kids, as they have a nice big play area for them and the food is delicious. And there cakes are to die for.

Loved everything about Clarens - people, restaurants, cherry bier (amazing), shops. Only the road to get there was bad with lots of potholes at a stage.
