About Forest Valley Cottages

Forest Valley is the perfect destination, with its low people traffic, fresh air, vast views and plenty of rejuvenating factors. It’s a book away-from-it-all spot for honeymoons, anniversaries, recoveries, lovebird hide-aways and anyone wanting time out. Just perfect!

Self Catering Accommodation

We offer self-catering accommodation on the edge of a magnificent indigenous forest valley just outside of Knysna, with glorious views of the Outeniqua Mountains.

Our 8 fully equipped cottages provide stylish, private and comfortable accommodation and a true getaway-from-it-all experience. Experience casual luxury in this sublime setting.

Each Forest Valley cottage has unrivalled views of the breath-taking Knysna forest and surrounding Outeniqua mountain range. Guests have a choice between 8 self-catering romantic hideaways, all valley facing and perfectly equipped with your privacy and comfort in mind. A daily housekeeping service is provided allowing you to truly kick back and simply enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

Some cottages have a spa bath with a view, while the others have a Jacuzzi tub, indoors with a view or outdoors on the deck.

Please see the individual cottage descriptions and photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

On Site Facilities

There is a plunge pool, which overlooks the magnificent views, for the use of all the guests. It's like a big Jacuzzi with aim flow jets and seating all around. And for the more active there is a forest trail from the cottages to the bottom of the valley.

Excellent Location

Forest Valley is conveniently located on the Cape Town side of the Knysna Lagoon, a scenic 15-minute car drive from the centre of town or Knysna’s pristine blue flag beach and 8 minutes away from the famous Knysna Lagoon.
Whether you are on a tourist, family or romantic visit, our hide-away cottages are sure to please. All are valley facing and perfectly equipped for privacy and comfort.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.
