Our extended family of 10 people had a lovely stay at Forest Edge. Despite the cold and rain we were very warm and comfortable in the cozy cabins. Because of the close proximity to walking trails we would make use of the breaks in the weather to go into the forest. A well run and comfortable establishment that I recommend heartedly.

Immaculate, clean, attention to detail. The air is so clean you can drink it. Quiet and beautiful. Incredible walks in the forest and to swim in the river. Close enough to the towns surrounding to eat out, explore the area and then return for a peaceful nights sleep.

Lovely little sanctuary hosted by lovelly people. You can walk into the knysna forest directly from the here. My wife and I not only felt welcomed but we also loved walking in the forest and enjoying communing with the forest in that way.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STAY! From start to finish we were spoilt and looked after by the lovely management couple and staff. Breakfast basket, packed picnic lunch, couples full body massage on our own verandah, to catamaran trip and dinner at Sorocco's Restaurant. Even a fireplace ready for chilly evenings left us wanting to stay longer. Highly recommended.

We were so happy with our stay. Everything was perfect and we honestly have no complaints. The power lines were damaged and there was no electricity which we realized was out of the staffs control, but we actually enjoyed our stay even more with the power off and they clearly made a plan very quickly for us, which was appreciated. Servicing daily was great and the staff were all lovely.

Thank you for the kind words Sallee, I’ll be sure to pass your thanks & praise on to the team. Apologies again for the power cut, the lines were damaged by the storms, but we did hire an emergency generator that was moved between the cottages. Till we meet again.
