Then Amohela ho Spitskop Country Retreat & Conservancy is exactly what you are looking for, we most certainly have the best family getaway in the Eastern Free State........we have the place, the space, the time, the silence, the solitude, the stars, the mountain, just bring you and the family, our EarthStone Cottages are superb, spacious, well appointed.  

For here you will FIND that something magic, that touch of special…our EarthStone Self Catering Cottages are beautifully positioned to enjoy the most spectacular view of the Eastern Free State. Here in the Eastern Highlands the long warm summer days lend themselves to barbecue evenings on the covered deck, cooling swims in the farm reservoir with sparkling clean borehole water and long beautiful evenings whilst watching a huge golden moon rise over the mountains.

In winter the snowy mountains and crisp clear air, big open fires and glass doors and windows give optimal enjoyment of the view. With a good book or a game of chess, enjoyed over a beautiful bottle of wine, what a way to while away an afternoon or indeed an evening. The magnificent sunsets are followed by nights with stars that take your breath away. 

The Retreat offers walks, hikes, climbs into the mountain, swimming, birding, small mammal viewing, cycling, scenic beauty, great day drives. Close by the  Retreat: Clocolan Golf Course with plains game wandering and a nice restaurant and pub, quaint villages, galleries and eateries,  proximity to the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, steam train rides, crop festivals, San rock art, and in season those yummy cherries and cherry farm visits.
