Woodlands was delightful in many ways. Room beautifully appointed, very well designed and comfortable. Lovely deck and view. Sadly I found it noisy. Sound-proofing between the suites wasn't good and I could hear too much from next door - including pre-dawn conversations on the deck. Also parking gets very tricky when there are lots of people. On a non-bank-holiday week-end this would be a dream place!

Such a beautiful place! The views are breathtaking and the little hiking trail is awesome. Lovely floating braai on the deck. It was amazing to be able to take our fur-child with and be able to let him wander freely without worrying. Our city fur-child chased the chickens but July was very calm about it. Really just an amazing place...didn’t want to leave. Peaceful and private... We will definitely go back...

Most gracious host Julie welcomed me upon arrival with such warmth and I felt at home and special, Reacher my lovable furry friend greeted me every day, walked the trail ahead of me and looked back every time to make sure I’m ok 😊 ❤ , something I will hold in my heart forever ❤ WOODLANDS. It's a serene sanctuary with the most beautifully decorated, clean spacious luxury rooms with all sorts of luxuries, spectacular views from the deck lazing in the hammock sipping coffee in the morning listening to chirping of birds, reading a book in the afternoon or enjoying sundowners with the most admirable sunsets. Its evident Woodlands has been built with so much love and care, with lots of homely touch, their personal own attention to detail you can feel it in every corner, in every step taking the forest walk with its own private path to get in touch with nature and allow your inner peace to flow and experience this unique sanctuary. Nature so glorious, magnificent and mysteriously enchanting. There truly is a spiritual magic there. If you are looking for a spiritual retreat in a sublime, natural setting then head out to WOODLANDS for solitude and serenity, to understand what is peace and calmness. If you desire more activity, beautiful beaches and the sweet town of Knysna, Sedgefield are a short drive away and don’t miss out on the Wild Oats Community Farmer’s Market in Sedgefield It was a sublime peaceful weekend with no cell phone connectivity that gave me a chance to cut off from my bruised spirit to reconnect and be at peace with myself. Will relish this memorable trip forever and looking forward to another visit!!!!! PS: for the techno crazy the wi-fi signal is excellent, but I recommend ignore the techno gadgets and enjoy the offerings at WOODLANDS!!!!!

Stayed on 2 occasions, and thoroughly enjoyed both! Understated decor, with plenty of thought given to the "little things" - handmade soap, sprig of spekboom on the bed, well laid out rooms. Would've been nice to meet the owners (Covid notwithstanding).

Beautifully & tastefully decorated cottages with everything you could possible need, right down to very thoughtful little finishing touches. The gardens and forest walks are just what we needed to relax and unwind after the stressful year. Wonderful garden and play areas for the kids, our little one loved the fat gorgeous chickens!
