About

Millpond House is a charming guesthouse situated in the quiet and peaceful Swartland suburb of Clarens. There are three tastefully decorated en-suite rooms and one family suite consisting of 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom.  The guesthouse was built in 2005 and since then has been run by the same owners.

The village which is packed with art galleries, restaurants, shops and a brewery is a mere 800 m from the guest house. Take a ten minute stroll through the beautiful tree lined streets, surrounded by mountains and you will come upon this little gem of a town.

 

Millpond House is situated close to the Clarens Village Conservancy where there are many spectacular hiking trails.

 

Enjoy the expansive garden with beautiful trees, bird life in abundance and rose-clad gazebo; an English country garden in the "Vrystaat".

All rooms have either balconies or French doors opening out onto the garden. DSTV (commercial package), free Wi Fi, under-floor heating, electric blankets and small kitchenettes in all rooms.

The rooms may be booked individually or the whole house on a Self Catering basis.

Testimonials

A little piece of heaven

"Our stay at the Millpond House was a series of pleasant surprises from start to finish! From the beautiful gardens to the lovely suite - functional but tastefully furnished - we moved from indoors to the little secluded garden outside as our mood moved us. Millpond House allows the guests to rest in the quiet, peaceful garden setting to just relax and unwind but at the same time using it as a base from which to explore Clarens and the surrounding areas. They took care of housekeeping and we took care of the fun! Loved our time there. ”
