We recently stayed at Narnia for 3 nights and can safely say we are unable to find a guesthouse that matches up to the charm and beauty we found in this little piece of heaven.
We stayed in what is called the "shed", quiet and peaceful, away from all the distractions and hussles of everyday life!
What we loved about the shed was that, as a group of friends, we could have our privacy- away from the other guests- but still within walking proximity of the main house.
The only thing we would change would be to prolong our stay in this beautiful place- sitting outside with a cup of coffee, looking out at the view of the heads was exactly how we wanted to start each day of our holiday :)
Thank you to Stella and staff for making us feel so welcome, we hope to be back soon!

- The Narnia Guest House provides affordable bed and breakfast accommodation and self-catering accommodation in Knysna. Situated on top of a hill, we surrounded by majestic views of the Knysna Heads (famous entrance to the sea), Knysna lagoon, the Knysna river and the Garden Route's Outeniqua mountains, this stone and timber guest house nestles in an acre of award winning gardens, visited by 180 species of bird and small wildlife such as bush buck, lynx, monkeys and bushpig.You would be hard pressed to find a better location to stay. Just 2 kms from the town of Knysna with its fabulous shops and restaurants, beaches within 10 kms, forest walks closeby, Plettenberg Bay 30 kms away and both the Tsitsikamma National Park and Oudtshoorn easy day trips.The Guest House is eclectic and intriguing with a mix of building materials, most of which were found on site. The salt water pool is a delight in summer and boasts a view of the mountains very difficult to beat. Geyser water is solar heated, the owners collect glass and tin to recycle, the gardens are watered from dams and are fed with worm farmed compost and an organic veggie garden supplies whoever needs what is being picked on the day.This is a place looked after, with love, by staff who have worked here for over 15 years and looked after guests for 12. Bed and Breakfast guests are treated to a fun drum call by Nomic. Mavis and Natalie make sure your room is spotless and your flowers in the bathroom fresh. ... more less
