Travelling to Clarens in the Free State and lost as where to stay? Large group looking for superb accommodation and self-catering, then look no further than Ridge Road Country House & Cottage.
A short drive of 9 km’s from the town of Clarens, on the R711, the accommodation boasts everything that the weary traveller could desire. The main house – Country House sleeps 12 with certain of the rooms having en suite bathrooms while others can share nearby bathrooms.
The entire look and feel of the main house is French Provençal, hewn out of sandstone rock and perched on a ridge overlooking a nearby stream; its location is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The house offers all the necessary home comforts and utensils needed, you only need to bring your food and drink. 100% cotton percale linen in the bedrooms, heaters in winter and a splash pool outside for the long lazy summer days really provide a splash of luxury and comfort. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with a large table to accommodate a large crowd of hungry folk.
The setting is ideal for a large group wanting to relax and unwind with more than sufficient space to have a quite relax, watch TV, or for the more energetic to go walking.
The other property in the grounds is the Cottage recently built based on a typical Karoo style is enchanting. It boosts 3 bedrooms sleeping 6 in total each with its own en suite bathroom. It’s totally self-contained with its own living area and kitchen all open plan. The cottage has TV with a DSTV boutique offering like the main house. The cottage has spectacular views and an interesting external pool.
The properties are pet friendly but take care with small children and old folk due to the terrain and structure of the properties.
Owned and run by Lyn and Simon who also have the Addey Hoyle Gallery situated in the town of Clarens, the house and cottage are a must stay!
We loved our stay here, and enjoyed being close to the town and being able to pop in and flavor the tastes, smells and sights of Clarens. Clarens is well known for its various artists and galleries dotted around the town, as too the delicious flavours of the various restaurants situated in and about the town.
