About Arundel Studios

Arundel Studio’s have spectacular, un-interrupted mountain views. Waking up to a rising sun over the Maluti mountains, you can see the Golden Gate from your bed. Only 4km outside of Clarens you’ll find yourself in the midst of pristine nature. It’s a place to experience the power of living in harmony with nature. A place to rediscover the meaning of stillness, to experience the richness of natural beauty.

Arundel Studio’s are set on a 4ha stand with 100m of river frontage and are located within Bethel Estate, which sits atop a ridge that boasts great views of Mount Horeb, Golden Gate, the Maloti Mountains and the Witteberge towards Ficksburg.

Roam the open countryside and picnic down by the Klein Caledon, which meanders through our own valley.

Self Catering Accommodation

Arundel offers two self-catering studio’s for 2 persons, each with its own entrance. Here you’ll enjoy the real ‘room with a view’. The accommodation comprises of a light and airy bedroom / living area with a fire place, dining table and a wall of floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the magnificent mountain views.
