This hidden gem is located outside Knysna, on the edge of the indigenous forest and the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains. Situated off the beaten track and located on the outskirts of the Indigenous Knysna Forest, Forest Edge offers a tranquil haven for nature lovers seeking privacy and comfort on the Garden Route.

There are five fully furnished cottages accommodating up to five guests each. Each cottage has two bedrooms, a private bathroom and an outdoor shower. Guests can relax in the Victorian-style bath while enjoying the sound of forest life outside.

Each cottage has an open-plan living room which consists of a dining area and a comfortable lounge. There is also a fully equipped kitchen available for all your self-catering needs. Guests can unwind on the veranda with a sundowner, or enjoy a delicious braai under a clear star-filled sky.

Guests can spend their days taking leisurely walks in the forest, or by exploring the many mountain-bike trails. Secluded rock pools and picnic spots are perfect for couples looking for a romantic afternoon pastime. Return to the comfort of the cottage to curl up in front of the fireplace with a book, or to relax on the porch while watching the fireflies.

Full English Breakfast Buffet is available at an additional R105.00 pp.

We went to Forest Edge to rejuvenate and that we certainly did. The location, the donkeys, the peacefulness - it was all fantastic. What a wonderful experience.
