We spent 2 wonderful nights at Forest Edge in the Froggy's Pond Cottage. Ronel's passion for sustainable living, her attention to detail and care taken to ensure her guests' are comfortable, are appreciated and commended. The proximity to the Knysna forest and surrounding attractions are very convenient, and yet one still feels secluded in this wonderful natural environment. We highly... More

It is not often that we are blown away by an experience, but this was certainly the case when our family recently visited Forest Edge. Ronel's attention to detail and pride in her establishment shine through in every aspect of Forest Edge. The natural surroundings are breathtaking, but the cleanliness, friendliness and "bend over backwards to help" attitude of Ronel... More

What an absolutely awesome way to get away from it all. The cottages are private and right on the edge of the beautiful Knysna forest. It was very clean, very comfortable and equipped with every possible thing one could need on a weekend getaway. Superb!

I stayed here with two mates for a week at the end of July for some relaxation time. The cottage (budget) was equipped with everything we needed. The TV did not get much use, but the indoor fire place did. The Kitchen was well equipped. Luckily the weather gods were good to us and we had near summer weather in... More

My husband and I stayed at Forest Edge for our honeymoon and we couldn't have made a better choice! We wanted for nothing, as all our needs were catered for - the cottage was clean, cosy and very comfortable, we felt totally at home. The staff are discreet to the point of being almost invisible...lol. The recommended daily activities are... More

We (2 adults and 2 children of 4 and 8) stayed for 4 days in July and we wished we could stay longer. The cottage was amazing and we had everything we needed. Ronel had thought of every detail, it was just perfect! We liked the hammock and the outdoor shower! This beautiful place is worth a recommendation. We hope... More

We felt really privileged to have stayed at such a wonderful location. We felt spoilt as our every need was catered for or accommodated in some way. The finer details are what made the experience a memorable one and one that we would highly recommend to all! Thank you!

Our family of four, incl our two boys of 9 and 11, had the privilege of staying at this lovely resort in July. We had booked for 3 nights but loved it so much we ended up staying 4, and would have stayed even longer but my husband needed to return to work the following day. The cottage was well... More
