Clarens is a tiny Free State village, a little piece of Europe in the middle of nowhere with
restaurants, coffee shops, craft and gift shops, decor shops and shops that you won’t find
anywhere else. The food is excellent and so is the coffee! The landscapes surrounding
Clarens are of Lesotho, Golden Gate Mountain Reserve and Mt Horeb. And just about any
outdoor activity you can think of, you will find in Clarens.

Book a cottage in Clarens where you can park your car and spend the weekend strolling to
the Village Square with all the shops and live entertainment.

Bring you dogs as there are many trails surrounding Clarens where dogs love to go for walks.

Have you ever been to Rhodes?

Almost forgotten, frequented by few, this little known secret of the Eastern Cape will
captivate lovers of vast, majestic mountainscapes, clear, starry skies and crisp air.

Bordering the Kingdom of Lesotho, Rhodes is safely nestled high up in these mountains with
the pristine, crystal clear Bell River with her many riffles and runs, gracefully flowing
through the village.

Rhodes Cottages has 17 self-catering cottages in the village, each with their own history,
garden, views and charm.  Many of our cottages are over 100 years old and still clothed in
their original Victorian character.  Some of our houses have been carefully and beautifully
refurbished, offering up-market accommodation while others have been untouched, leaving a
sense of the old world to our holiday makers.  All our cottages are serviced daily and are
fully-equipped with all you will need for your stay.
