About Forest Edge Nature-lover's Retreat
Experience tranquility, romance and privacy in nature at multi award winning self catering cottages. Nature-lovers' retreat: birds, game, secluded rock pools, forest walks and biking trails. Sun downers with fireflies and cosy log-fires. Experience the magic of the forest ...
Off the beaten track, quietly nestling in the Millwood Indigenous Knysna Forest, Garden Route, Western Cape: Forest Edge offers a self-catering vacation haven for nature-loving families, stressed-out city-dwellers, adventurers and honeymooners. Each fully equipped 2-bedroom cottage houses up to 5 persons. Forest Edge accommodation offers an authentic, memorable and affordable break-away holiday experience.
Experience an emerald day on forest walks, picnics or biking trail adventures, lazing in a hammock, or visit the beach or Knysna town (20min away). Rejuvenate in a hot-water outdoor shower or indoor bath. Mellow out on the chalet verandah, watching birds or buck drink at the dam. Light a braai (barbecue) under the stars; flitting fireflies and evocative night-jars add to the enchantment. In winter enjoy a book or movie by the cosy log-fire.
There are five fully equipped two-bedroom gold-mining style self catering cottages, aptly named Firefly, Froggy Pond, Fieldmouse, Fox Glove and Fairy Den. Each cottage accommodates up to five persons and offers the following accommodation: verandah with table and chairs that overlooks the private barbecue area; a private outdoor hot water double-shower; hammock; an open plan lounge / dining / kitchen (fridge with freezer, stove with oven plus extras like microwave and TV / DVD) and cosy fireplace. Some cottages also offer Free WiFi, DSTV, a Queen sized bed and more.
Main bedroom with Double bed or Queen bed, second bedroom with two single beds (cot and extra mattress on request), old-fashioned bath and basin (toilet separate). Linen and bathing towels are provided. Park right next to your cottage.
Please note that only kids over 12 years old are allowed in Superior Main House.
The jungle gym and our pet donkeys (Hansel and Gretel) delight the kids. No need to get bored: Stunning birdlife, forest walks and biking trails, swimming at the nearby beach or at Drupkelders rock pools, picnic at Jubilee Creek, nearby forest horse riding; fishing at The Drift or a host of adventure activities in the area (e.g. canopying, abseiling, ferry rides, whale and dolphin tours) and day trip options (e.g. Elephant Park, Monkeyland and more).
As an alternative to braaing under the stars there are wonderful country restaurants and tea gardens nearby, not to mention the award-winning Saturday Farmer’s Market and the restaurant selection in Knysna town.
