Iona Cottage

Self Catering House, Cottage, Chalet Accommodation in Clarens

This cottage is set on its own erf in the Swartland of Clarens. Surrounded by mountains, Horeb is visible to the east of Iona. To the west, there is a huge convex cliff which juts out to the left of Iona. To its right, directly opposite the cottage, and part of the range, is a section of concave cliffs. After heavy rainfall, a waterfall flows from the right hand corner of these cliffs which is both visible and audible from the garden of Iona. Eagles nest in these cliffs. They are often seen and heard across from Iona.

Why the name 'IONA'?
In his book "Civilisation", Kenneth Clark describes the island of Iona off the west coast of Scotland as secure and sacred, with a feeling that 'some God is in this place'. He adds that 'Iona gives one more than anywhere else... a sense of inner peace and freedom'. This statement is applicable to Clarens.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all required necessities. The sitting room-dining area is furnished with comfortable settees, a dining table and chairs.
