Natures Valley offers the best of both worlds - peaceful and unspoilt yet within a stones throw of the vibrant Garden Route towns of Plettenberg bay (30km) & Knysna (50Km).
The village itself comprises of just 300 houses, a shop and a restaurant. It is unique in the fact that it is completely surrounded by the Tsitsikamma National Park. Aside from the stunning beach there is a large lagoon, which makes it ideal for all age groups.
The area supports a wide variety of wildlife, roughly 22 species of mammals & 200 species of birds. It also marks the end of the famous Otter trail.

Natures Valley is the perfect retreat to get away from it all. As you explore by foot you will see bushbucks in the gardens   and Knysna Louries in the trees.

Our house is walking distance to the beach and lagoon and we have a canoe that can be enjoyed. There are also many hiking trails starting from Natures Valley.

When you feel like getting in the car, there are several good restaurants and great places to visit in the vicinity. 

On your doorstep:
Bird watching, Canoeing, Coastal trails & Forest hikes, Fishing, Mountain biking.
Snorkeling & Swimming.

There is a small convenience shop and restaurant in the village itself.

A short drive away:

A 5 minute drive will take you to a beautiful farm shop full of local produce.

The Crags is a10 minute drive away and has wine estates, a lovely cafe with homemade food and numerous animal sanctuaries and experiences as well as kloofing.

Plettenberg bay is a 30 minute scenic drive away and is full of boutiques, good restaurants and cafes, as well as being the hub for activities such as sea kayaking, surfing and dolphin & whale watching trips. There is a lovely farmers market on a Saturday where you can mingle with the locals and buy fresh produce and crafts.

Knysna is less than an hour away and is a vibrant quayside town and home to many artists.

Storms River is 45 minutes away and is another stunning place to visit for the day.
