Three rooms have double beds and the fourth bedroom has twin beds. Each bedroom is en-suite, with both shower and bath. Large built in cupboards and a dressing table completes each room.

On the second level on the house, an open plan living area of lounge, dining room and conversation nook, is spacious and beautifully furnished. A fire place, essential for Clarens winters and cold evenings is situated in this area.
