We checked in to the Clarens Country House for a 1 night stay on the way to the Drakensberg. The room was beautiful and well appointed. The setting in Clarens is perfect. Loved it and will be back.

The people are verry nice and happy to see you. Every thing is super clean, great view and safe. A little noisy in the mornings when the staff is in the garage under the loft. But great service!!
Comfortable, warm, friendly - perfect little weekend retreat

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.

Shepard's Loft coziness

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.

We had an amazing weekend away. Would recommend it to anyone that's looking for a quiet and peaceful breakaway.

What a delightful and quiet place to stay! Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, with all the little extra touches like a wide variety of teas and coffees, rusks and biscuits, the milk in the fridge and the sherry as an appetizer, everything was just perfect. We recommend it to anyone who would like to spend some relaxing time in this part of the country. Many thanks to our friendly hosts - we will definitely be back.

The shepherd's loft has everything that you need for a romantic weekend getaway. It's very private and peaceful, the facilities are great and the views are to die for. Clarens is stunning! It is not possible to fit everything there is to do and see into one weekend. We'll have to go back for more!

We had a marvellous stay and highly recommend it to all! We will definitely stay there again when we visit Clarens in the future. The Oudhout Suite was lovely, very clean and tidy and the warm welcoming touch of having lovely rusks and biscuits, coffee, tea and milk was wonderful - as well as the sherry as a nightcap! Splendid indeed!

Het so lekker gebly by hulle, baie vriendlike mense, great uitsig en baie skoon.
Die verblyf is naby alles gelee en is baie gemaklik, ek en my vrou sal verseker weer ons huweliksherdenking daar gaan bly.

Perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway

The accomodation was perfect for a weekend getaway.
Right across the road from the main city centre, but far away enough so that you arent competing for parking.
The unit had a seperate kitchen with a couch and cofee table. Stocked with coffee and tea. Fully equiped with stove, microwave, fridge and kettle. They even provide rusks and biscuits.
Rooms are serviced daily and they provide free internet. Everything you need for a perfect couples weekend.

We enjoyed our anniversary weekend @ Clarens Country House (OUHOUT SUITE)! What a nice place! Our host, Toni, was very helpful and thought of every little detail - from sherry on arrival, candles in the bathroom, earl grey tea and "moerkoffie" & rusks in the kitchen, milk in the fridge ... to ... a hairdryer, very clean "spierwit" towels, sjampoo and lotions! Rooms are spacious and clean, bedding white and 100% cotton, good quality beds! Oom Schalk se stoep - nice for relaxing with a book or enjoying the view of the golf estate and Clarens town. Very relaxed weekend! Excellent customer care and friendly host and staff. Our batteries are recharged! We will definitely visit again soon and will recommend to everyone!

My husband and I spent a lovely three days in Clarens. The Clarens Country House was perfect and clean with good bed linen, heaters, electric blankets, etc. Everything was just perfect for our needs. Our room was nicely appointed and the hospitality extended by Toni and Peter was excellent. They made sure we had everything we needed, in fact, Toni even made a booking at the restaurant where we were intending to have a celebration dinner. We will be back!
Wonderful stay at the Clarens Country House

We had an amazing time here from 28-31 July. We decided to spend my birthday weekend in Clarens, and this was the best choice in accommodation. Toni and her husband arranged a discount for us in restaurants as well as for spa treatments. The suite we stayed in was beautiful, and we appreciated the electric blanket and heaters everywhere around the house. We could not tell it was below freezing point outside as we were so cozy and warm inside.

We stayed in the Shepard's Loft at the Clarens Country House. As soon as we entered the door, my wife and I fell in love with the place! Very cosy and neat! The Shepard's Loft is very private, with it's own entrance and private parking! Toni seems to know everyone, and organised us discounts and coupons at the local establishments! We received a huge discount at the golf course! We really enjoyed our stay, and would recommend The Clarens Country House to anyone!
A fantastic experience

Toni really added special touches to her house. Little things like Earl Grey tea, fresh herbs given to us to help with our evening meal and a comfortable bed. Made our stay special. Thanks.
The Clarens Country House
The Clarens Country House is nestled in a wooded corner of the secure Clarens Golf and Estate, where it started out as a sheepshed on the original farm – long before the Golf estate came into being. This century-old stone sheepshed, with wrap-around mountain views, 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 one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations. 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 complete collection of illustrations is on view in The Gallery On The Square in town.)
The Clarens Country House offers four 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). The Bosman, Ouhout and Wildeals suites open onto a 20 metre fully-glazed verandah, commanding rolling lawns and 360-degree views, whilst The Shepherd’s Loft is a separate, private suite – ideal for a romantic getaway. The Clarens Country House is a 15-minute walk from the village square, which offers some of the best shopping, restaurants and art galleries in the country.
We are now also offering breakfast in a basket. Breakfasts are freshly-made that morning by Amy Joy and delivered to your suite at a pre-arranged time. (So far all our guests who have made use of this service have been absolutely delighted with their breakfasts.) The cost per breakfast is R120, and Amy Joy is happy to do diabetic friendly or vegetarian breakfasts provided that she gets at least a day's notice.
