About North Cottage

North Cottage, positioned front and centre at Noetzie beach Knysna, has been around since before the place was made into a township in 1915 and even before plots were properly surveyed. It is older than 100 years, made from strong corrugated iron and timber, shipped in kit form from the UK.

In the last 10 years a few improvements have been made; a flushing WC, an outdoor shower, gas fridge and stove, a fresh paint job and a face lift. The cottage also has solar powered lighting and hot water - which make it a lot more comfortable than it was 100 years ago!

Self Catering Accommodation

There are three bedrooms; two front rooms facing the sea, all 3 with double beds. There are two extra double bed bunks, on the verandah. (The beds can be moved around to suit the needs of guests by prior arrangement.) There is a central living / dining room and a small, equipped kitchen with a gas powered fridge and stove. Guests choose to spend most of their time at the braai area, on the beach or on the front stoep / verandah, enjoying the sunrises, sunsets, dolphins, whales, otters and other wild animal sightings. Lighting is solar powered, you can charge small devices like cameras and phones. We also provide portable solar lanterns, books and some games for beach.

We meet you on arrival, show you where to park, help offload luggage and give you a crash course on how the cottage works. It does have a few quirky requirements, like any old lady, around 110 years old would have. There is a Telkom pre-paid phone line, and we live close by- 20 minutes drive away from Noetzie, to assist you if necessary.

North Cottage facilities include a canoe and paddles for use on the Noetzie River.

Activities and Attractions

Things to do include fishing, easy or challenging coastal hikes to secret beaches and tidal pools, canoe trip upriver and hike alongside the shallow river to the Brackenhill Waterfalls (donít get lost though). For fishing and for fresh wild oysters from the rocks at low tide please obtain a permit from the post office first.

For the less adventurous types, the outdoor classroom on the hilltop is heaven for bird and fynbos fundis, trees and plants are named, and information provided on flora and fauna. Picnic tables with incredible views are provided for your enjoyment.


One provison before renting this precious place to anyone is that the National laws and Conservancy rules must be obeyed: tenants are not permitted to drive on the beach, or to disturb the peace in any way.
