Madrid Farm Cottages

Self Catering House, Cottage, Chalet Accommodation in Clarens

On the R712 about 9 km from Clarens and 8 km from Golden Gate. Turn off onto the Sunnyside Road and drive for about 3km on a dirt road.

We have three self-catering cottages in the large garden on the farm "Madrid", which has been in the Mousley family for 144 years. The cottages are close enough to the homestead to be very safe but still out of sight of each other. Also in the garden is a Banksia rose which was planted soon after the first George Bennett Mousley arrived to take up residence during the early 1880s. The present generations farming here are the fourth and fifth Mousleys to take up the challenges involved in farming on this farm.

Sunrise Cottage is a weathered sandstone cottage with the main bedroom opening out onto the patio and a second bedroom with en suite bathroom. The shower room opens off the small hallway between the two bedrooms. Optional King-sized or single beds. This cottage sleeps two extra guests on pullout beds with bases and good foam mattresses. Ideal for children or small adults. The lawn in front of the cottage is ideal for children to play under the watchful eyes of their parents relaxing on the patio. From here there is a lovely view across the garden towards the mountains.

Sunshine Cottage is also built with old sandstone, having two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms (one shower, one bath). Optional King-sized or single beds. This cottage was built in 2003 with stone from a redundant Lucerne shed and has its own fenced lawned garden with a view across an old orchard towards the mountains.

Sunset Cottage is a plastered brick building, having one double bedroom and one bathroom with a bath. This very private cottage is ideal for a honeymoon or a couple breaking away for a weekend alone. From the stoep one can look across the lawn and rose-garden towards a ridge which protects the garden from the west wind.

All the cottages have open-plan living areas with fully equipped kitchens, (stove with oven, microwave & fridge, kettle, toaster, dishcloths, dishwashing liquid & scourer incl.) and open fireplaces as well as private braai areas with views of the garden and mountains. 

Bath soap and liquid hand washing soap is provided. Linen is provided (except swimming towels) as well as extra blankets, electric blankets , heaters and fans. Complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and creamer provided on arrival.

The cottages are serviced daily. The fireplace will be packed each day but guests are requested to bring extra wood. Not available for sale on the farm.

There are no TVs in the cottages. Guests are welcome to bring their own radios or CD players but are requested to consider other guests when playing their music.

We do not have card facilities so guests are requested to make direct payments for the deposit and another just before arriving. The balance to be paid during the week preceding arrival.

Smokers are requested to smoke outside.
