"The cottages are located on a beautifully situated farm halfway between Clarens and Golden Gate which makes it ideal for guests who want to hike but also spend some time in town. Ingrid and her daughter put sweet touches into the rooms with flowers from the garden and firewood for the winderful and effective fireplace. However these dont manage to mask the sizeable and numerous cracks in our cottage (sunrise), the tired looking furniture in our room the old, unappealing linen or the dirt in our bathroom and beds on the first day we arrived. That being said, my sister and her family stayed in sunshine cottage which was lovey, homely and sunny. They claim to be family friendly, but dont let the kids do the entry in the guestbook on your behalf unless you want to receive an unappreciative email in response. Perhaps our cottage is just in need of some maintenance as the farm seems to be too, but if the owners put in a little bit of TLC and repainted and updated our cottage a bit I could reccomend others to stay here, but as it is, Im afraid Id suggest you look elsewhere for a cosy Clarens getaway."

"Warm and snug for the coldest weather next to a blazing fire! Neat and clean comfortable 'Home from home' hosted by caring Ingrid, George and Margot. And the dogs who felt we needed a waggy visit every day! Thank you Selina for logs in the fireplace every night and for daily, friendly service. We loved everything!!"
