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.

Very nice location, perfect if you are visiting Golden Gate or Clarens. Ingrid was very welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay at Madrid Farm Cottages. Oh, and the stargazing was amazing!

Peace and quiet at Christmas time. A good Christmas lunch at Gosto restaurant (but beware the R100 cover charge per person). "Eat cheese" for a wonderful breakfast platter. Golden Gate in all its majesty.

It's a quaint little town that knows how to keep tourists happy. Stop in the town square on a weekend for a walk around the market and a cold beer at the brewery.

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.
