About Woodlands Retreat
Woodlands Retreat offers a luxury self-catering suite (sleeps 2 - 3 guests). Surrounded by inspiring sandstone mountains, secluded amongst woodland trees and nestled in a lush garden, this peaceful venue is ideal for rest and relaxation and one can take an easy three minute gentle drive (approximately a 10 minute walk) to central Clarens.
We strive to create an organic environment which is eco-friendly and our goal is to be as self-sufficient as possible, planning to be off the grid in the future.
