Gentle Presence is one of the oldest sandstone homes in Clarens built in the 1900's. It is thought to have been the stables of a larger farm where farmers gathered for Nagmaal (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 with fridge/freezer combo, 4 plate gas stove with gas oven, microwave, toaster, etc. Limited tea, coffee, dish clothes and cleaning materials supplied. The living area is comfortably furnished. There is a TV with full DSTV and a large dining room table where you can enjoy meals or play games. The bedrooms have quality linen, electric blankets and heaters. The 2 single beds can be converted into a king size bed and the other room is standard queen bed.

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 white river rafting, 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 gas braai or just enjoy the views of the garden and mountains.
