Madrid Farm Cottages comprises three self-catering cottages situated in the garden on the Madrid Farm, which has been in the Mousley family for 143 years. The cottages feature open-plan living areas with fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces, as well as private barbecue areas.

Enjoy the ever-changing colours of the mountains from the veranda, with spectacular views over the garden and mountains. The cottages are serviced daily and in winter, the fireplace is packed every day. Extra wood is available for sale in Clarens but not on site.

The Golden Gate National Park is approximately 12 km away and here visitors can enjoy many different hiking trails. The scenery is spectacular and the rock formations in the area offer many photographic opportunities. There are also horse riding facilities nearby.

We strive to provide peace and quiet and a home away from home.

Family friendly: We don't cater particularly for entertaining children but they are welcome to run about and play anywhere in the large garden. There is also a large flat grassed area which used to be a tennis court and which is great for ball games.

Great scenery, real tranquility, and good value.
Sunrise Cottage is spacious and comfortable, with good quality beds.
Four adults were comfortable with enough space and the 2 bathrooms made things even easier.
Centrally situated for seeing Clarens and surrounding areas.
Lovely to be on a working farm and to see the daily activities.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Madrid Farm Cottages. It was perfect for our needs, fully kitted out kitchen, fireplace for the cold evenings & electric blankets for the beds, all in beautiful surroundings. The kids loved exploring the farm & playing with the dogs. The mountain views are gorgeous. We look forward to visiting again!

We stayed in the Family unit and it was 7 STAR - Couldn't wish for any better
Jaco & Myrna are wonderful, Everything was organised and ready for us, communication was a pleasure on whats app. And another BIG bonus is that we parked our car, and only got back into it when our stay ended. Town is a few paces away and CLARENS is just so chilled and relaxed.
Will be back to Forever Clarens For Sure :)

So many great little restaurants and stores to explore! So hard to just pick a favorite. Really enjoyed the Gin tasting at Red Rock as well as the beer tasting at the brewery. Great and friendly service. A great town to explore the surrounding scenery from.

The hikes and the quaint town experience formed a great mix of getting outside while still being able to go into town and browse around.
