WORTH A LOOK

Getaway (South Africa) - - THE FINAL CUT -

Sun­ny­side Guest Farm

You’ll find 80-some­thing Mrs Boland still help­ing to pre­pare the meals and daily tea rit­ual that are part of the ex­cel­lent-value pack­age here. Not much has changed since she and her hus­band took over the farm 60 years ago – fur­nish­ings, fit­tings and at­mos­phere of the sand­stone cot­tages and home­stead fill one with nos­tal­gia. R650 pp shar­ing full board. 058-256-1099, clarens.co.za

Red Moun­tain House

Just six rooms in this small, com­fort­able B&B on the vil­lage square, each with a fire­place and four-poster bed, plus there’s a self-cater­ing apart­ment with moun­tain views – small won­der this spot is of­ten fully booked de­spite the some­what fuddy-duddy decor. Room R655 pp shar­ing (R830 sin­gle) B&B, apart­ment from R1 100 for two (sleeps four). red­moun­tain­house.co.za

Clarens Manor

This is the best op­tion for a large group want­ing to be in town. Ar­chi­tec­turally un­pre­pos­sess­ing but the in­te­ri­ors are lovely, with five vir­tu­ally iden­ti­cal en-suite bed­rooms (that is, easy to share) and great open-plan liv­ing spa­ces, in­clud­ing a re­ally well-equipped kitchen and a veranda and deck with moun­tain views. From R3 000 a night. 082-859-7915, where­tostay.co.za

Clarens Coun­try House

Lo­cated on the golf es­tate op­po­site town, this old sand­stone sheep shed has been clev­erly con­verted into four small ‘apart­ments’ with glass-en­closed pa­tios – great for sun­set drinks as the lights flicker on in Clarens. One of the units is a fam­ily suite (sleeps four). Break­fast is served in your room. From R650 pp shar­ing B&B. the­claren­scoun­try­house.com
