About Ellerbeck Country Lodge

Ellerbeck Country Lodge is located just outside the quaint old-world town of Clocolan, in the eastern Free State, 135km from Bloemfontein and 365km from Johannesburg. The lodge is nestled between the Korannaberg and the Maluti Mountains, overlooking magnificent sandstone formations, carved over millions of years by wind and water. Their typical brilliant displays of gold and copper cliffs have made this part of the world famous worldwide.

Ellerbeck Country Lodge offers a peaceful alternative to those small touristic towns and offer visitors a spectacular world of rock formations and untouched nature: the perfect backdrop for walks and bird watching.


Accommodation at Ellerbeck Country Lodge is provided either in our three luxury chalets or in the main country house overlooking our spectacular valley, framed by beautiful mountains and their rocky sandstone outcrops.

The three chalets sleep two guests each while the main house can accommodate eight guests. All accommodation facilities are within walking distance of the Ellerbeck Conference Hall / Wedding Venue and the obvious place to stay when visiting for a conference or wedding.

Disabled guests are welcome and can be accommodated in the three chalets as they are easily accessible by wheel chair and spacious. Kids are also welcome at Ellerbeck Country Lodge: We can accommodate children under 10 with special beds while children over 11 are required to book separately.

All rooms are heated and stocked with warm blankets, wall heaters, coffee and tea stations and towels. Every room is decorated in its own style and has its own special character and identity. Guests can choose to stay in Rose, Opal, Pearl, Sapphire, Tanzanite, Ruby or Topaz. Our room names were inspired by the rich colours of the stand stone outcrops and cliffs in the area.

Breakfast & Dining

Guests at Ellerbeck have the option of having two meals catered per day (breakfast and dinner). Please note that catering is not included in the accommodation price.

The communal lounge and porch areas are the perfect gathering place for spending time in front of the fire place on cool winter evenings or having drinks while overlooking the surrounding area on the porch.


Ellerbeck Country Lodge offers the visitor a range of activities. The peaceful natural surroundings provide a spectacular setting for walks and bird watching. Several walking trails are marked out and we cater for every type of walk from a lazy afternoon stroll to more adventurous walks.

The area is known for its bird population and the species in the area include Cape Vultures, Black Eagles, Martial Eagles to name only a few, making the area a paradise for avid bird watchers.

Photographers also enjoy the area with its vast sandstone mountains, big skies, rich biodiversity and spectacular sunsets. The area is also home for the many indigenous plants typical of the landscape of the eastern Free State. “Kiepersol” trees, “Kandelaarblom” and “Witstinkhout” can all be found in the area.

The Koranna Mountains have a rich cultural history and historic sites in the mountains are easily accessible from Ellerbeck Country Lodge. Some of these sites include sites such as the Anglo-boer war “Ossewas-brandwag” cave and San cave paintings. Several 4x4 trails and private game reserves are also available in the area.
