Arundel House Studios

Arundel Studios: The best of two worlds…

With spectacular, uninterrupted, mountain views of the Maluti Mountains, Arundel Studios is where guests can see the Golden Gate from their beds. It’s a place to experience the power of living in harmony with nature. A place to rediscover the meaning of stillness, to experience the richness of natural beauty in the midst of pristine nature.

“Exquisite surroundings, peaceful, extremely neat, spacious, convenient braai area: basically the PERFECT getaway for a break from the big city or when you need to spend quality time with your loved one.” (review 22 March 2018)

Only + 4-5 km outside of Clarens Arundel is set on a 4ha stand with 100m of river frontage and is located within Bethel Estate, which sits atop a ridge that boasts great views of Mount Horeb, Golden Gate, the Maloti Mountains and the Witteberge towards Ficksburg. It offers the best of 2 worlds, out in quiet nature, yet at a stone-throw of the friendly town of Clarens, the jewel in the Eastern Free State, with its attractive amenities.

Studio Interiors

2 self-catering studios each comes with its own entrance and wall-to-floor ceiling windows, to enjoy the magnificent mountain views. Both studios are light and airy, open-plan units of 24 square meters.

Each studio offers a queen- size bed, a en suite bathroom, a living area and a dining area with a fireplace. Linen, electric blankets, and towels are provided.

Enjoy preparing your own food in a fully equipped, hand-built kitchen complete with granite worktops.

Kitchen includeds:

  • Freestanding stainless steel electric oven and stove with gas hob
  • Microwave oven
  • Fridge
  • and Arundel's own mountain mineral water on tap

Each studio has a roof terrace and patio equiped with braai facilities and garden furniture where guests can relax and take in the impressive views.

Smoking is not permitted within the studios, but ashtrays are provided for the patios.

An added bonus is the fact that Arundel has its own clean water supply from a borehole while since Arundel is on the so-called Eskom ‘load limiting’ scheme, loadshedding is no longer being experienced.


At the Klein Caledon, a picnic area is created with a weir and steps, so Arundel guests can have a swim in the river or throw out a fishing rod, whenever the weather and water-level permits.

Arundel Studios is the ideal base for undertaking a full range of adventurous outdoor activities or to rest and relax and go out for a romantic dinner in Clarens. The owners will be pleased to advise you on the various options.
