Gentle Presence is one of the oldest sandstone homes in Claren. It is thought to have been the stables of a larger farm where farmers gathered for Holy Communion. Due to the exceptional views of the Rooiberge (including Mt Horeb) and the Malutis, the home was originally given the name Kyk Die Berge in the 1960’s. At the time it was the only multi-storey structure in Clarens and the locals affectionately called it “Die Flets”. It has a charming history which we would love to share with you.

In Room Facilities:

The cottage has an open plan living area, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2,5 bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering. There is a TV with DSTV and a dining room table where you can enjoy meals or play games. The bedrooms have all linen, electric blankets, heaters & fans. Both rooms have Queen size beds and the Living Room has a sleeper couch for 2 children/young guests.

Area Information:

Clarens is a small village situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in the Free State province of South Africa and nicknamed the "Jewel of the Eastern Free State". The village lies at the foot of Mount Horeb and is on he Free State Highlands Route close to the Golden Gate National Park.

Being an easy 3 to 4 hour drive from JHB or Durban is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the eastern Free State. The area appeals to young and old with many activities such as abseiling, hot air ballooning, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, quad biking, horse riding, game drives, tours to cultural villages and into Lesotho. It is also a great base from which to explore the area and the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

Clarens has become the long weekend mecca of those after an arty, sleepy hollow with just enough entertainment not to be dull.

Property Facilities:

The garden is large which guests are welcome to use.

The covered patio has a large table and chairs where guests can make use of the braai and firepit or just enjoy the views of the garden and mountains.

Shaded parking is in the yard, behind locked gates.

Cleaning on request at additional fee.

Attractions:

*Golden Gate National Park
* Afriski

Gentle Presence in its name is exactly what you feel and receive at this beautiful venue, the photographs do the views and atmosphere no justice as this is a true love story at your door! The surroundings and hosts made our stay amazing and we are definitely going back again! Thank you for making a memory that will last for years and years to come. If you are looking for tranquility and a soul revitalizing experience, Gentle Presence is exactly what you need! Loved every minute and hated packing to leave.

We love exploring Golden Gate, wondering through the shops in the Town and visiting our favourite Clarens Brewery. We enjoy supporting the smaller farm restaurants in the area. Highland Brew was a lovely new addition to this trip.

Main roads to town are recommended for daylight use only. Small town atmosphere but with a wide variety of activities and stores. The annual Titanic Challenge Trail Run was my main attraction - stunning views!

Small, quaint, but very lively little town with spectacular views all around. Hiking is a must and can be done on the edge of town. We stayed at Views and the hiking trail was on our back door. Beautiful, beautiful little town offering great food, culture, entertainment and beautiful hiking trails.
