Cottage Pie Clarens situated on the picturesque Free State Highlands Route, 17 kms from the Golden Gate National Park, 3 hours from Gauteng, Pretoria and Bloemfontein, and 4 hours from Durban, a special place awaits you.

Cottage Pie Clarens is a quiet tribute to solitude and peace, nestling beside a trickling stream amongst indigenous trees at the foot of a magnificent sandstone mountain.

A variety of birds with occasional visits from buck, hare, dassie, baboon and porcupine, make living in the country a truly special experience.

Recreation in the area includes trout fishing, walking, hiking, climbing, tennis, squash and horse riding. Local pubs aplenty.

Skiing in nearby Lesotho during winter.

Art galleries and gift shops galore.

A hearty cooked breakfast is provided in the main dining room.

Hospitality is great, but facilities are average.

Cottage Pie cottage is lovely - beautiful views - and is in a great location. We were comfortable although the kitchen was not very well equipped and there are a few small problems (like the leaking shower) that need fixing.
