“Re-creation at Forest Edge I feel like a new person after hearing the forest sounds from the quaint comfortable cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, forest paths on the doorstep, a cosy cottage to come home to, efficient and quick service, the hot outdoor shower, the hammock on the porch, the sense of private space and the quality of the information available about local life and the amenities in the area.

Forest Edge is an unforgettable and extremely special place to us. It is apart of a place in our hearts that will never fade. If we could we wouldn't change a thing and quiet easy move in permanently. We love it there.. Thank you.

The quaint chalets are well equipped and the location is fantastic - right in amongst the woodlands of Knysna national park. The place is well run and the eco style of living is an inspiration. Keep up the good work.
