About Birch Cottage

Birch Cottage is a comfortably furnished self-catering house situated in Clarens, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It is only a short walk from the centre of town. Clarens is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in very close proximity to the Golden Gate National Park and the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

The cottage consists of two double bedrooms sleeping four guests, a loft area sleeping two guests, two bathrooms of which one is en-suite, a fully equipped kitchen with laundry facilities and a comfortable lounge area with a fireplace and a TV. DStv can be viewed, but guests please need to bring their own smart card and decoder.

All year round, but especially in autumn when the leaves turn to gold, the scenery in Clarens is a magnet for artists and photographers. Art galleries, a lovely church and a museum are well worth a visit. The relaxed village atmosphere, spectacular views and mild climate makes Clarens an idyllic weekend getaway.

      A beautiful house well looked after in an ideal position. Just make sure that you arrange the keys before you arrive and leave.

      Lovely stay as always, however she needs a bit of TLC in ourhumble opinion, maybe ? Crack at kitchen doir in flor really getting bigger and infront of bay-window in lounge. Window frames needs varnish, paint outside in general. Heaters (on lowest setting) trips the power. Shower tap knobs 'socks a bit, general earthing problem in cottage ?

      Thank you for a wonderful time. The cottage was so charming and delightful and made our 3 night stay exactly what we were looking for. As first time Clarens visitors, the location was perfect as we were in walking distance to the town square. We will definitely be back soon.
