Blackwoods Farm Cottage is a delightful, open plan, 2 bedroomed cottage situated on a working farm 2km off the R711, 7km from Fouriesburg and 26km from Clarens, in the Clarens municipal district in the Eastern Free State Highlands. Afriski in Lesotho is close by. The farm is off the grid, utilizing Solar energy and fresh water from the Maluti mountains on the farm.

The cottage has magnificent views over the farm and the mountains (on the farm) and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The farm has horses, cattle, sheep, 2 Pot bellied pigs and the Little Caledon River flows in the valley below. The mountains and foothills are ideal for hiking and cycling. The cozy cottage has a wood burning fireplace and a well kitted out kitchen/dining area with stove, fridge, microwave, toaster cutlery and crocery.

The patio is suitable for outdoor living and braais. Wood is provided from the farm with our compliments.

We do our best to keep the gravel road in order, please drive slowly.

The Cottage sleeps up to 6 people.

  • The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed for 2 people with a view of the farm and mountains. 
  • The second bedroom has 2 single beds with a view of the farmyard.
  • A sleeper couch in the lounge can be made available for 2 extra guests.
  • A camper cot is available for a small fee for little ones under 2 years.

The Open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area is well kitted out with gas stove, fridge, washingmachine, microwave, toaster etc. The kitchen area overlooks the farmyard and the lounge has a beautiful view of the open valley below. A patio with table, chairs and braai facilities also overlooks the valley below. Wood is supplied from the farm.

Blackwoods Farm offers great walks on our very own Muliti foothills, walks and bicyle rides through the farm lands and picknicking down by the Little Caledon river which runs through the lower part of the farm.

Nearby Clarens is abuzz with restaurants, shops, art galleries and usually a festival on the go. Eg. Craft beer festival, Cherry Festival, Asparagus Festival etc. Drive a bit further on though to the wonderful Golden Gate Nature Reserve for a day out.

There are biking and hiking trails, horse riding, fishing and mountain climbing facilities nearby.

Faurieburg is growing into its own with the Orange Apple, Die Plaasstoep, the Fauriesburg Inn, Jen Lees and a few other interesting restaurants and craft shops.

The farm is the most wonderful place to relax and unwind.
