Travellers' Choice
Our self-catering cottages are a popular choice for Honeymooners, lovers, and nature lovers. Peaceful and very private timber chalets with awesome views of Knysna forest and the Outeniqua mountains, yet only 15 minutes from Knysna town. The Knysna Forest in one direction and the beach in the other direction, also about 15 minutes away.

Nice enough but if not for the view nothing special. Location is remote so day to day essentials not readily available. Not really any restaurants to speak of. Self catering but only just equipped with the bare essentials.

I am most surprised by your review! Our location feels remote but is a mere 15 minutes into the centre of Knysna. Our cottages are VERY well equipped for self-catering! There is also a well stocked country store 2km down the road from us. Totties Farm Kitchen is a lovely daytime restaurant 6km up the road from us, and The Bell Tavern is 10 minutes from us. We communicate this information to our guests on booking. This being said makes us wonder whether you actually stayed at Cliffhanger Cottages or perhaps you're confusing us with somewhere else.

What a wonderful stay we had! The cottage we stayed in had the most serene atmosphere and picturesque view of the beautiful mountains and hills of Knysna. I would recommend this place to anyone needing a break from their busy lifestyles to relax and have fun :)

My partner and I took a 2 day break and we can definitely recommend Cliffhanger Cottages for a romantic getaway. Our secluded chalet had Beautiful views of the forest area and we could also enjoy the view from our bathroom. The air-conditioned bedroom was a welcome retreat from the heat. Unfortunately there is no swimming pool on the property. However we would however love to return in winter as the lounge has a beautiful indoor fireplace.

This is a stunning place, the views from all around, from the balcony, lounge and bedroom are breath taking. We did not close our curtains. We loved our stay and will definitely come again. Hosts are lovely too :) Thanks for making such a comfortable place to stay.

We love hearing from our guests what they enjoyed! The birds certainly enjoy the birdbath and our guests enjoy filling it from the deck, with ease. Thank you for your recommendations!
