Forest Edge Nature Lovers’ Retreat

3-Star |  Rheenendal, Knysna

Multi-award-winning, affordable, private Knysna Accommodation in the middle of the Garden Route, with self-catering cottages on the edge of the ancient Knysna forests beckons…

Whether active on a stunning forest walking or biking trail, having a picnic next to a secluded forest stream, swimming in magnificent rock pools, or simply lazing in a hammock by your fully equipped Knysna Accommodation cottage, Forest Edge promises TRANQUILITY, PRIVACY & ROMANCE. We now also serve traditional Breakfast & Dinner on our new picturesque Lily Pond Deck!

Spend the day rocking in a hammock on your ‘stoep’, watching water lilies open to the sun while kingfishers dart in and out of the pond. Or put on your boots to tackle the Drupkelders hike and spend hours at the waterfall and swimming pools you’ll discover in the forest. Or go into Knysna for craft beers or coffee and to wander through the town’s art galleries and shops. Then return to Forest Edge in time to watch the fireflies emerge as you light the fire for your braai…

Each of the five cottages is private and tranquil. Built in the nostalgic style of the old woodcutter cottages from centuries past, each unit is fully equipped for a comfortable, relaxed and self-sufficient stay.

There is also a lovely undercover deck overlooking a gorgeous pond where you can enjoy mouth-watering South African cuisine for breakfast or dinner and experience true Knysna Forest Hospitality.
