Free State Accommodation

The Free State province lies in the heart of South Africa's interior. It is a large, flat area with a more or less uniform landscape throughout. To the east however, the landscape does change somewhat as the provinces rises into the foothills of the Maluti and Drakensberg Mountain Ranges respectively. Accommodation in the Free State provides the ultimate escape and can be particularly charming if you choose one of the quaint little towns.

The Free State plays a significant role in South Africa on various counts. For starters, it has a thriving agricultural industry, which mainly produces grains. In fact, the Free State is often referred to as South Africa's bread basket because it produces up to 70% of the country's grain. To the north of the province mining is a widely practised economic activity.

Welkom, one of South Africa's youngest towns is the capital of the Free State's mining industry. Visitors to Welkom get the opportunity to better understand the practise by visiting the gold museum and going down a real mine shaft.

The Free State's other noteworthy attribute in the context of South Africa is that it's home to the country's judicial capital, Bloemfontein, also the capital of the province. Bloemfontein is a small city renowned for its streets lined with roses.

The Free State also has some other delightful attractions such as the small town of Clarens in the east and Parys, in the north. Clarens is a lovely place to visit and offers some of the most pleasant Free State accommodation options. The town is surrounded by wide open spaces - open fields and big skies. It has a lovely laid-back vibe which has a special appeal to artists, who in turn perpetuate the atmosphere of a quaint, artsy town. Clarens is home to no less than 18 art galleries!

The old mining town of Parys is situated in the north of the province and possesses an old world charm which many visitors find hard to resist. This town too boasts a thriving artist community as well as a craft beer brewery.

Just outside of Parys lies one of the Free State's most notable slices of natural heritage, the Vredefort Dome. This crater is the site of a giant meteor crash which occurred hundreds of years ago. The dome is now a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and is of international significance to geologists and scientists.

One of the most popular choices with regards to accommodation in the Free State is the Vaal Dam. This is the second largest dam in South Africa, and unlike the quaint little towns and historical sites, 'what you see is what you get' applies to the dam. It is a large body of water which provides hours of fun for water-sport enthusiasts. It is a popular weekend destination for Gauteng locals, being so close to Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Bloemfontein
Baie mooi plek skoon en netjies
- C Van Heerden

Clarens
Still one of my favourite holiday destinations. So many beautiful, clearly marked and easily accessible hiking trails in Clarens and not too far away at the Golden Gate. The scenery that surrounds you is breathtaking. The quaint little shops, restaurants and coffee shops make this a unique destination.
- Gillian Venter

Gariep Dam
We drove around the area and were astonished at the size of the dam and would probably stay longer on our next visit.
Restaurant facilities could be expanded.

- John Mcleish

Bloemfontein
Beautiful Area

Clarens
Lieflike plek. Kosse uitstekend. Baie om na te kyk en wonderlike natuurskoon.
- Santa Nortier

Bloemfontein
Baie mooi dorp maar munisipaliteit kan iets doen met die veilgoed sakke wat op die hoeke staan van die strate . Veilgoed soos die sakke geskeur het word nie op getel en skoon gemaak nie . Kan die stadsraad nie kaste bou so dat die veilgoed sakke daar ingeplaas kan word nie . Die plekke op die hoeke van die straat is veil en slordig .Jammer Bloem jy maak dit nie vir my nie
- Chris De Bruin

Gariep Dam
It is a very interesting small town, only knew about it when I found View Lodge.
I would definitely go back and stay longer to explore the area.

- Hilton Xolani Ntombela

Smithfield
Greatly enjoy a stop over in Smithfield
- Barbara Verity

Clarens
The village of Clarens has plenty to see and do with many bars, restaurants and shops. Dogs are welcome in most places. The many mountain walking trails are great fun for 2-legged and 4-legged explorers, with magnificent views. Definitely worth a visit!

Parys
