We booked the cottage for a peaceful get away from it all weekend after a hectic Christmas. St Fort couldn't be better - quiet and secluded, just outside of Clarens, with a fantastic view of the mountains and the mushroom plus a lovely garden to walk and chill in. All in all the perfect base to explore Clarens and the...

We booked out the whole house for a few days in December. It's a beautiful house (10 minutes or so from Clarens on the Fouriesburg road) set in a stunning garden with an amazing view. The rooms are great (if you don't book out the whole house try and get the main suite), the staff are friendly and there are...

I got married at St Fort in September. It was the perfect setting for a country wedding. Conrad was brilliant in making sure that all the pieces tied up perfectly on the day and everything happened the way we wanted. The service providers he suggested were all excellent. The guest house was the perfect place to stay for the weekend....

We rented the whole house on a self-catering basis for a large family get-together. The house is spacious with well-appointed rooms and suites. It is beautifully situated. We used the barn for communal dinners. The venue was ideal for this purpose.
