About St Fort Country House

Set on 2,200 acres of Free State mountain farmland, St Fort is a sandstone farmhouse built in 1913 that has been lovingly restored into a luxurious and comfortable guest house. It is situated 5 km from Clarens, in a stunning setting surrounded by mountains.

St. Fort offers five en-suite bedrooms, divided into two separate units. The smaller unit features two bedrooms with its own lounge, kitchen, veranda and garden, while the larger unit has three bedrooms with its own lounge, kitchen, veranda and garden. There is also a garden cottage with a self-contained kitchen and full bathroom. We accept bookings for individual rooms, either of the units, or for the whole house when friends or families wish to gather. Antique furniture, DStv and all the comforts of home are what make this holiday destination truly unique in the area.

St Fort offers short hikes as well as the Mushroom Rock Trail, bird-viewing, and mountain biking in the area. The Mushroom Rock Trail is a gentle two-hour walk which takes you all along the Little Caledon River, where there are many inviting spots to have a picnic or just to sit down and relax before starting the gradual climb up the mountain to the famous Mushroom Rock from where one can behold the splendour of the magnificent view.

                      Hierdie fasiliteit is ideaal vir enige persoon wat 'n besonderse natuurskoon, stilte en ou werêldse plaaslewe-gevoel tesame met al die gemak wat die gastehuis bied, kan waardeer. Die gastehuis word sterk aanbeveel.Vir diegene wat langer vertoef, sal dit gemakliker wees as as braaihout verskaf of alternatiewelik verkoop word op die perseel

                      What a lovely location, just a short distance from Clarens, and MUCH nicer than staying in town! Our host, Ernestine, has done a brilliant job of turning this family farm into a gorgeous wedding venue, with innumerable fantastically photogenic spots! Even just the gardens themselves are so beautiful and so relaxing to meander through. We weren't here for a wedding, but it was also just a great self-catering spot for our family.The hiking was an unexpected bonus; the trails with bridges and ladders VERY well maintained, were a great added attraction! We did the Mushroom Rock Trail. The self-cat...
