"The magic of the forest"

"We had a wonderful stayu in Hillside Forest Valley Cottage. The setting and location is not only magnificent but very convenient. We had wonderful meals at Totties, drove through the magical Phantom Pass and visited not only Knysna but also Sedgefield markets and local farms with wonderfull produce, all within a 10 minute drive. That however said, the highlight was evenings spend in front of the fire place. This is an ideal setting to find yourself. It feels like home and you will never want to leave."

"Wonderful place really quiet and romantic and completely safe.One small drawback is that WI-FI not available in the cottages only at the owners house.We had a great time and it is a good base to explore Knysna without the bustle of the main tourist area"
