The Barbet Country Cottages is situated on a large farm, 17 km from Clarens along the magnificent Maluti route, a beautiful, scenic drive, including our very own 'God's Window', overlooking the vast Maluti Mountain ranges.
The Barbet Country Cottages is perfect for family getaways or large groups, with four lovely cottages to choose from, each with their own wonderful characteristics and style.
The views from the Barbet Country Cottages are astounding. The farm is home to Blesbok, Reebok, Duikers, as well as many other forms of wildlife. Birdwatchers will enjoy the many species of birds, including the paradise flycatcher, hoepoe, raptors and, of course, the crested-barbet. Mountain bikers are also welcome to come and enjoy our purpose built trails from 4km - 30 km in distance. Unwind with the breathtaking mountain views, relax in the champagne air and enjoy quiet reflection or invigorating walks.
