Woodlands Retreat is a secluded, peaceful venue ideal for rest and relaxation and, is an easy 3-minute gentle drive (+-13-minute walk) to Central Clarens.  Here you can re-connect with the soothing rhythms of nature, watch a variety of birds frequenting the garden and wander around the meandering pathways, discovering what is hidden around the next corner.

493 Villiers Street is situated in the peaceful Swartland area of central Clarens, in the protective arms of the Rooiberge Mountain Range. Backed up to the southeast by the mighty purple/blue  Maluti Mountains.   Apparently 493 Villiers was part of a vlei covered in water, which the original farmer/owner drained and reclaimed.  Now a tranquil Retreat nestled in a lush garden, amongst woodland trees and surrounded by the inspiring layers of multi-coloured sandstone mountain landscape, for which Clarens is renowned.

Clarens being part of the scenic Highlands Route ensures that we are conveniently situated being a short hop for a weekend getaway (+- midway between Johannesburg & Durban & equidistant from Bloemfontein).

Clarens is endowed with more trees than most other Free State towns.  The different seasons present unforgettable sights as the leaves change colour from light green Willows in spring to the magnificent vibrant autumn shades of the Lombard Poplars, Chinese Maples and Elms to name a few.  The abundance of spring blossoms are breath-taking.  All these attract artists, photographers and nature lovers.

Clarens is also called the Adventure Capital of the Free State because of the wide range of sporting and outdoor activities within easy reach.

The Golden Gate National Park is about 20km away and makes for a lovely day trip
