About The Clarens Country House

The Clarens Country House is the newest lifestyle option in Clarens' exceptional portfolio of weekend getaways. Situated on the secure and scenic Clarens Golf and Trout Estate, this century-old stone sheep shed has been completely remodelled as a luxury self-catering guest house.

With half-metre thick sandstone walls, The Clarens Country House is a cool retreat in summer and a cosy refuge from the invigorating winters. The country house offers four self-catering apartments named Ouhout, Wildeals, Bosman and the Shepherd’s Loft. With a 20 m fully glazed veranda commanding rolling lawns and 360-degree views, this is the ideal place for ultimate relaxation. The country house is a mere five-minute walk from the village square which offers some of the best shopping, restaurants and art galleries in the country.

Oom Schalk’s se Stoep runs the length of The Clarens Country House and provides shared living space for relaxation and al fresco dining in summer, or snug conversation around two vintage wood-burning stoves in winter. The Ouhout, Bosman and Wildeals Suites all open directly onto the stoep, which can be opened to catch the summer breeze or zipped up tight when the temperature drops. It is perfect for parties, bridge playing or afternoon naps.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic hideaway for two, a spacious apartment for four, or a house to accommodate a party of eight or 10, The Clarens Country House offers everything you could ask for. At the centre of a remarkable network of signposted walks and a world of adventure around you, The Clarens Country House is the place to be for a unique mix of rest and recreation in the country’s cleanest highland air.

                  We loved our stay and the hosts were extremely accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back.

                  We had a great stay at TCCH. Even though it was a working weekend we felt very welcomed. The rooms where cozy and the beds comfortable. The little kitchen unit was also a great addition.

                  Toni and her husband are friendly and we enjoyed our stay very much.

                  We had a very peaceful weekend. Lovely accommodation, well maintained.

                  Had a lovely stay in the Shepherd's Loft. The unit is extremely functional and cozy. I'm sad that I never had time to light the fire, maybe next time. The vouchers for coffee and beer were an absolute bonus. It's lovely staying a bit out of the craziness of town on a long weekend. It's walking distance from anything important.
