About Gnome Cottage

Gnome Cottage is a quaint and unusually shaped building, set in a pretty enclosed garden. It is a short walk away from the centre of Clarens, with its many art galleries, restaurants and interesting shops. The cottage contains a comfortable double bed, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchenette for self-catering and a living and dining area. Quality linen, towels, toiletries, heating and electric blanket in winter and a complementary tea and coffee tray are provided. We accept pets but we have some rules - they must be house-trained, have their own beds and not sleep with you nor get on the beds or chairs, you will clean up after them, pay for or repair any damage that they have caused, and to not leave them on their own for longer than an hour as the barking and howling is not pleasant for the neighbours. Cooperation is sincerely appreciated! Only a few metres away from the garden is access to a wide choice of hiking trails in the conservation area and not far away are two excellent golf courses, tennis courts, superb trout fishing, historic explorations, dinosaur trails, horse riding and game viewing. Bring your passports and you can enjoy a day trip to Afriski in Lesotho and visit the caves on your way.
