About Fern Gully
Fern Gully is 18kms outside Knysna on the Rheenendal Road to the historical Millwood Goldmine and Jubilee Creek in a rural, plantation forested area in the Garden Route. Enjoy the serenity of the country and the bird-life in their natural habitat. Forest walks and horse trails are nearby and the beach is a short drive away.
The gully that gave the farm its name runs through the bottom half of the land and the cabins, being built on stilts at the edge of the gorge, give the impression and ambiance of being in the tree tops. They are so positioned as to provide maximum seclusion and privacy and each cabin's deck faces its own view through the trees.
The cabins are uniquely different and each one has its own distinct appeal. They are fully furnished and equipped for self-catering in the Garden Route and braai facilities are on the deck. As well as an indoor shower, each cabin has its own outside hot and cold shower.
Owl Cabin (sleeps 2):
Owl Cabin is fully equipped and furnished for self-catering ease. There is a braai on the deck and a special feature of the cabin is an additional outside hot and cold shower.

Hoopoe Cabin (sleeps 2):
More spacious than Owl Cabin, Hoopoe Cabin is decorated in the colours of the beautiful Hoopoe and its outdoor shower has an even more spectacular view of the forest.
