About Forest Edge Nature-lover's Retreat

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 offers an authentic, memorable and affordable break-away holiday experience.

Experience an emerald day on forest walks, picnics or biking trail adventures or lazing in a hammock. 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.

ACCOMMODATION

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.

ACTIVITIES

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).

Was here on honeymoon – what an amazing experience! The beauty of nature, the amazing breakfasts, the accommodating, friendly & wonderful staff and the romance of a log fire in the evenings – as far as holidays go – the bar has been set extremely high on this our first one together. The wonderful memories we have made here will carry us through the tough times. See you soon!

This place is absolutely amazing. I will recommend it to any nature lover or someone who love peace and quite. The people, the facilities, the food, just the general feel of the place made me fall in love with it. We will be back again soon. Special thanks to Susan and Dries…..we will always remember the extra mile you went to make our stay absolutely magical.
