Ellerbeck Country Lodge

From R600 per Unit



Ellerbeck Country Lodge is located just outside the quaint old-world town of Clocolan, in the eastern Free State, 135 km from Bloemfontein and 365 km from Johannesburg. The lodge is nestled between the Korannaberg and the Maluti Mountains, overlooking magnificent sandstone formations, carved over millions of years by wind and water. Their typical brilliant display of gold and copper cliffs have made this part of the world famous worldwide.
The many caves in the Korannaberg have been providing shelters for the Koisan people and more recently to the Kora tribe ("those who judge") who chased the Koisan in the mid-19th century and after whom these mountains are named. Many caves display exquisite paintings from both these eras. Soon after, the Kora people were chased westwards by the Basotho, who in turn were chased beyond the Caledon River in 1867 during the British occupation of the area.

Accommodation at Ellerbeck Country Lodge is provided either in our 3 luxury chalets or in the main country house overlooking our spectacular valley, framed by beautiful mountains and their rocky sandstone outcrops. The 3 chalets sleeps 2 guests each while the main house can accommodate 8 guests. All accommodation facilities are within walking distance of the Ellerbeck Conference hall / Wedding Venue.

Although secluded, Ellerbeck is easily accessible by well maintained roads, although a short stretch is a dirt road. The Lodge remains easily accessible by most non 4x4 vehicles under all weather conditions.

Guest Comments

Ellerbeck Country Lodge was the highlight of our holiday. Although we travelled to Hogsback and Dragon's Peak in KZN, Ellerbeck was the best accomodation and friendliest people who did everything to make us feel welcome. Scenery very beautiful. Definitely want to go back for another visit.
