There are wonderful mountain walks and hikes for the more active, along with biking trails and extreme sports such as abseiling, white water rafting, hot air ballooning, Quad Biking to name a few.

There is also an 18 hole golf course 5 minutes away.

We are endeavouring to create an eco-friendly, organic environment and are moving to be as self-sufficient as possible, planning to be off the grid in the future!!

Attractions:

Woodlands Retreat is a harmonious peaceful getaway, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Here you can relax and breathe in the fresh mountain air. It is a place to notice the sounds of nature and peacefully connect with your inner self. Recharging your vital energies by connecting with Mother Nature.

However if you wish to liven up your day or night, especially on weekends, central Clarens is a hop skip and a jump away.

Clarens is renowned for its wonderful Art Galleries and fabulous Restaurants for wining and dining, or cooling yourself down with a craft beer!.

You will find live music and various other activities throughout the year such as Craft Beer Festivals, Hogs Roadshow, Live Music Festivals, Art Retreats, Sports events to name a few.

Weekends are generally busy with one activity or another, whilst mid week is much quieter.

Woodlands Retreat is beyond spectacular, homey, comfortable, clean & well kept. Good luck for the expansion at the retreat. We will highly recommend you to our friends & family back in Johannesburg.

We stayed here for 1 night quick stop through Clarens. It's very close to the town centre and is set in lovely surroundings. The room itself was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely come here again.
