The main bedroom features a four poster King bed and the second has 2 single beds, together or apart. The en-suite bathroom has a bath and a shower, and the guest bathroom has a shower and a toilet. The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering with a gas stove and oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, cutlery and crockery.

The working farm has cattle, horses, 2 friendly pot -bellied pigs, chickens and faithful farm dogs. Guests can enjoy the experience of a true working farm, peace and quiet, breathtaking mountain and valley views, walks on the farm and mountain paths, mountain streams, rock pools, hiking, cycling and picnicking on the farm dam and the Little Caledon River.

The cottages are situated in the farmyard of Blackwoods Farm, a working farm between Clarens and Fouriesburg. Access to the farm is from the R711, 26 km from Clarens and 7 km from Fouriesburg in the Eastern Free State. The Golden Gate National Park is just beyond Clarens for easy driving day outings.

Blackwoods has a rich history of the Boer War (with Surrender hill and the Brandwater basin nearby), dinosaurs (and dinosaur fossils) the Maluti mountains and the Little Caledon River. Blackwoods has links to interesting stories of the Boer War involving the De la Harpe and the Van Reenen families, as well as the "Love Story" of Clarens. Clarens, the Golden Gate National Park and Ficksburg are a short drive away. Clarens is a haven of restaurants, craft shops, art galleries and has its own brewery. The Golden Gate National Park makes a fine day out picnicking.
Close by Fouriesburg is a fine up-and-coming little town steeped in history with some restaurants, pubs and shops. Fouriesburg is the gateway to "Afriski".

In Room Facilities:

The main bedroom has a King-sized bed and the second has a Queen-sized bed.

Area Information:

The Eastern Free State town of Fouriesburg is in the scenic Brandwater Basin, surrounded by the Maluti, Rooiberg and Witteberg mountain ranges, on the border of Lesotho.
Fouriesburg is named after Christoffel Fourie, on whose farm, Groenfontein, it was established in 1892. During the Anglo Boer War, it was declared the capital of the Orange Free State Republic – a proclamation yet to be rescinded!
With a primarily agricultural economy – wheat, cherries, asparagus, sunflowers, beans and mielies – it also offers unique scenic beauty, activities for nature and adventure enthusiasts, arts and crafts, places of historical and architectural interest, and small-town hospitality.
A quieter alternative to the bustling village of Clarens (just 35km away), Fouriesburg is a comfortable commuting distance from three of South Africa’s major urban centres: Johannesburg (350km), Durban (400km) and Bloemfontein (250km).

Excellent stay, very welcoming, comfortable and relaxing exactly what we needed. All the little extras makes it very special. Views are immaculate. Great to play with the dogs and roam around the farm. The hosts are very friendly and engaging with information about the area..

Absolutely magical. Carol and her family (including the hounds and horses) were incredibly welcoming. It felt like home away from home and the perfect place to unwind. My family and I will definitely be making Blackwoods a holiday destination

Sit back and relax, that pretty much sums up the beautiful location of Blackwoods. The cottage is really well equipped with all the essentials and much much more than traditionally found at self catering accommodation. The farm has an amazing setting with the backdrop of beautiful mountains which remind you of the Golden Gate mountain range. The friendly horses and cute pot-belly pigs really let you embrace the farm style holiday.

We spent an amazing few days at the farm. I can't say enough about how tranquil and lovely the cottage and farm is. The cottage itself is elegantly decorated and has all the facilities one could need. We were extremely comfortable there and lacked nothing during the stay. The hosts are warm and genuine people and made us feel right at home. Blackwoods is a must and I would highly recommend it as a place to recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
