In the lee of the Eastern Free States Maluti Mountains, The Clarens Country House is the newest life-style option in Clarens`s exceptional portfolio of weekend getaways. Situated on the secure and scenic Clarens Golf and Trout Estate, this century-old stone sheepshed has been completely remodeled as a luxury self-catering guest house.
The sheep and their shearers gave way to a cherry liqueur distillery a decade ago, before this historic building was reclaimed to become the place to stay in South Africa`s Tourist Town of the Year. With half-metre thick sandstone walls, The Clarens Country House is a cool retreat in summer and a cosy refuge from Clarens`s invigorating winters.
The Clarens Country House is themed around the work of Herman Charles Bosman (the artist-in-residence created the Illustrated Bosman) and much of the art work from that book features around the rooms and the Stoep, which is named in honour of Oom Schalk Lourens, the greatest story teller in the Marico, if not the world!
The Clarens Country House offers five en suite, self-catering apartments (The Ouhout Suite, The Wildeals Suite, The Bosman Suite with two en suite double bedrooms and the Shepherd`s Loft) opening onto a 20 metre fully-glazed verandah, commanding rolling lawns and 360-degree views. The Clarens Country House is a 5-minute walk from the village square, which offers some of the best shopping, restaurants and art galleries in the country.
We have a Family Suite (4 people) and 3 Doubles (2 people each), all rooms are en suite, luxury fittings and full kitchens make each space the home you love to visit.
The Family Suite is called the Bosman Suite and is filled with art work from the Illustrated Bosman, brought together with you for the ultimate group getaway around a large dinner table and lounge area.

We were very well received by your lady at the reception and enjoyed our weekend at The Clarens Country House. We especially enjoyed the tranquil surrounds and quiet nights.

We spend 3 nights at The Clarens Country House at the beginning of November staying in the Shepherd's Loft. The accommodation was wonderful, very comfortable and beautifully appointed with a very generous tea and coffee box, a jug of fresh milk in the fridge, a welcoming packet of rusks, biscuits and chocolates, toiletries in the bathroom, and a decanter of sherry on the coffee table in front of the fireplace. The setting in the secure Golf and Trout Estate is peaceful and countrified, yet only a few minutes drive from the village centre. I would highly recommend The Clarens Country House.

The little extra's (in the kitchen and bathroom i.e extra coffee and soap) made it for me. Oh and the coal stoves on the stoep. I wish I could stay there permanently. As they say " home from home" It is the the best. Thanks
