Clarens Accommodation

Marken Cottage is a ‘home from home’, clinker brick cottage with everything necessary to make one’s stay comfortable and memorable. North-facing for maximum warmth and light in winter and for being cool and comfortable in summer, Marken Cottage has a patio and built-in braai area from which to relax and enjoy views of the Rooiberg Mountains which surround Clarens, Horeb Mountain being the most outstanding feature.

Marken Cottage sleeps four. The main bedroom, also north facing, has a double bed and en-suite bathroom and toilet. The second bedroom has twin beds and en-suite shower and toilet. All beds have electric blankets and all linen and towels are provided.

The living area of the cottage is spacious with a lounge, dining room and open plan kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped for four people and includes a combination fridge/freezer, a microwave oven, as well as a counter-top two plate stove and oven, toaster, and kettle.

Patios on either side of the cottage offer a place to relax and read, and enjoy an early morning tea or afternoon sundowners. Undercover, off road parking completes the picture. There is full DStv.
