    "Breaking News - we recently completed our picturesque Lily Pond Deck where we serve a delicious Farmhouse Breakfast."

    .. at Award-winning self-catering cottages. Nature-lovers' retreat: birds, game, secluded rock pools, forest walks & biking trails. Sundowners with fireflies and cozy log-fires. Discover the Magic of the Forest....


    Situated off the beaten track, Forest Edge quietly nestles in the expansive Millwood Indigenous Knysna Forest on the magnificent Garden Route in the Western Cape. Forest Edge offers a self-catering vacation haven for nature-loving families, stressed-out city-dwellers, adventurers & honeymooners.


    Enjoy an emerald day on Forest walks, picnics or biking trails, horse riding nearby, canoe at the “Drift”, enjoy a massage or beauty treatment, laze in a hammock or at the beach, or on an adventure activity or trip to Knysna town (30 leisurely minutes away). After a refreshing hot-water outdoor shower or relaxing indoor bath, mellow out on the verandah with sundowners.


    Watch a bushbuck or baboon family drink at the dam. Light a braai (barbeque) under the stars to the chorus of frogs; flitting fireflies and evocative nightjars add to the enchantment. In winter, enjoy a book or movie in front of a cozy log-fire.
