A number of hiking and cycling trails are on your doorstep (we have three bicycles available for hire). The cottage is also in close proximity to the historical Millwood Gold Mines and enchanting Jubilee Creek. Allow Mother Holly's Tea Garden to nourish your taste buds while soaking in the breathtaking mountain views.
Visit the Dalene Matthee monument under the gentle giant Yellowwood tree. Bird watching is popular - watch out for the Knysna Loerie and if you're lucky, the Narina Trogon. Enjoy country living with a few good restaurants and general store within 10 minute drive or take a scenic drive to Knysna town.
We are a 20 minute drive to beautiful safe beaches. Horse riding is available nearby.
