Very relaxing and close to the town and surroundings. Will advice others of this peaceful and tranquillity.

Lovely stay at Forest View! The house was extremely well equipped and much bigger than we expected. There were only three of us, but the house could comfortably accommodate a bigger group. A home away from home, we would definitely stay here again!

This is my second stay at Forest view and will definitely not be my last! I was there about 2 years ago for Christmas with my family and then my friends and I decided to brave the cold and book a stay during winter. Forest view never disappoints, as it is comfortable and spacious, a real “home away from home”. We cooked a number of hearty meals in the kitchen, which is very well-equipped with utensils and appliances (in some cases more equipped then my own home.) When we didn’t want to brave the cold, we spent the evenings relaxing in the cosy lounge, watching DSTV and warming ourselves by the fire (and Sherry). I have recommend Forest view to several of my friends and will definitely make the journey to Clarens again because of this beautiful accommodation. It really made our stay. Bring yourself, food and you are home!

This was absolutely the most wonderful place I have stayed at in Clarens so far, and I have been going there for +- 5 years. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything one needs for a weekend. Will definitely go back without a doubt

Forest View is spacious and comfortable, and the photos give an accurate impression of the place. Maybe even a little understated. My wife and I took our friends from the UK and their baby to stay for the weekend in Clarens. It rained shortly after we arrived, but that made no difference to our holiday. There are two spacious lounges, a fireplace, braai area, big covered stoep, and a well-appointed kitchen. This is not a holiday cottage with the owner's old furniture and mismatched crockery. Far from it! Everything promised was provided, including the DSTv, although we hardly watched it because we were having a great time. The beds were comfortable, and nothing felt cramped. We cooked several meals in the kitchen, and it felt better than home. We felt thoroughly spoilt staying in Forest View, and have already mentioned it it several friends. The garden is large and offers plenty of privacy: no inquisitive neighbours or B&B owners hovering around. Just peace and quiet, and a view of the hills around Clarens. Perfect. Clarens it a lovely town to visit, and we plan to return whenever possible. Forest View made our stay even more special.
