Arundel Studios have spectacular, uninterrupted, mountain views of the Maluti Mountains, where guests can see the Golden Gate from their bed. It’s a place to experience the power of living in harmony with nature. A place to rediscover the meaning of stillness, to experience the richness of natural beauty in the midst of pristine nature.

Only approximately 2 km outside of Clarens, Arundel is set on a 4-hectare stand with 100m of river frontage and is located within Bethel Estate, which sits atop a ridge that boasts great views of Mount Horeb, Golden Gate, the Maloti Mountains, and the Witteberge towards Ficksburg. It offers the best of 2 worlds, out in quiet nature, yet at a stone's throw from the friendly town of Clarens, the jewel in the Eastern Free State, with its attractive amenities.

Accommodation is offered in 2 self-catering studios, each with its own entrance and wall-to-floor ceiling windows to enjoy the magnificent mountain views. Both light and airy, open-plan units of 24-square metres offer a queen-size bed, a living area with a fireplace and dining area, and an en-suite bathroom. Linen, electric blankets, and towels are provided.

Enjoy preparing your own food in a fully equipped, hand-built kitchen complete with granite worktops, freestanding stainless steel electric stove with gas hob, microwave oven, and fridge, with Arundel's own mountain mineral water on tap, or go to one of the quaint restaurants in Clarens.

The studios each have a roofed terrace with braai facility and garden furniture where guests can relax and take in the views after a day of hiking, mountain biking, playing golf or relaxing by the river.

At the Klein Caledon, a picnic area is created with a weir and steps, so Arundel guests can have a swim in the river or throw out a fishing rod, whenever the weather and water-level permit.

Arundel Studios is the ideal base for undertaking a full range of adventurous outdoor activities or to rest and relax and go out for a romantic dinner in Clarens. The owners will be pleased to advise you on the various options. Smoking is not permitted within the studios, but ashtrays are provided for the patios.
