Throw your troubles into an old kit bag & drop them off in Clarens!

This has to have been the worst year ever experienced by most people, universally, which means that if you can get away and head for Clarens in the Free State, the pure fresh air and wide open spaces will help to blow all your troubles away.

It doesn’t matter if you only have a weekend to getaway, if you live in Durban, Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, the trip will only take a little over 4 hours from each of these locations.

In fact Clarens has always been a favorite weekend hideaway for many taking the short journey to what’s fondly known as The Jewel of the Free State, and finally, after a total lockdown, the team offering the best accommodation at Clarens Eddies Self Catering/Bed & Breakfast is back in full swing.

There is more than enough fresh air to go around, and with the lowest rate of infections, the Free State is the perfect weekend break, or for a few more days than just a weekend.

The welcome extended by the staff at Clarens Eddies is so genuine that you can’t help wanting to stay a little longer, or to visit again and again to become another of the regulars who won’t stay anywhere else in Clarens.

It’s not just the welcome that lets you know you’ve hit a bulls eye by choosing to stay at Clarens Eddies, it’s also the fact that as locals, the staff and owner Dawn Trevelyan will be the perfect guides to you in terms of finding the best hiking trails, restaurants and over 20 things to do in Clarens, and they do it with joy!

This is a team that’s received the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame from 2015 to 2019 from TripAdviser and, which should give you a pretty clear idea about what to expect when you book into Clarens Eddies!

Clarens should be on the bucket list for anyone that loves a rich history, which is the case with Boer War Sites, Bushmen Paintings to be found in the sandstone cliffs around this 100 year old village, as well as the Basotho Cultural Village not far from Clarens.

Visiting Clarens any time of the year will always be a stroll down the annals of time and history, no matter where you look. There is also unmistakable evidence of a rich past in the sandstone architecture still to be found in many houses, art galleries and restaurants in and around the Village Square.

This beautiful valley, combined with staff that really care that you enjoy an unforgettable holiday in Clarens, makes it one of those destinations you can never get tired of. 

It’s certainly off the beaten track, which must account for the phenomenal art displayed in galleries along the Art Avenue. Your unit at Clarens Eddies is also a miniature art gallery, with paintings and other artwork displayed beautifully in this stylish accommodation.

If you’re ready for more than just a bit of fresh air, affordable accommodation that’s stylish and designed for comfort, then this is the time to contact Clarens Eddies to make your booking.
