Fantastic place to stay. We stayed in the Eagles Nest suite which I can only describe as palatial. The views of the lagoon were wonderful. Being away from Knysna was perfect, the area was very tranquil and had an exclusive feel but takes no time at all to get to town taking in the fantastic views along the way. Wonderful for children as they have their own space to explore and play on the swings and zip wire without impacting on other visitors and they have use of the pool near the visitors' lounge/bar. The Brenton Hill area is well worth a tour as we saw small antelope wondering around in the immediate area and many unusual birds. Nearby Belvedere even has it's own pub for evening meals.

Dear Wendy and Richard,

Thank you so much for such a glowing review of Brenton Hill! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You are right it is the 'best view in Knysna'....unfortunately the current tripadvisor photo does not exactly show that!!! I suppose that is the risk when trying to update photos....I am assured it will right itself soon.

Take care and we welcome you here again should you ever revisit the Garden Route.

All the best,

Catriona and Andy

If only we could wake up to a view like this every morning! I'd been to Knysna many times in the past, but for some reason never to Brenton? ... And WOW what wonderful views of the lagoon and the sea which has a magnificent sandy beach stretching to Buffels Bay. It would definitely be our first choice from now on! We were also pleasantly surprised by how quick it was to get into town if you needed to get to a shop. We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids and stayed in the 'Eagles Nest' which was perfect for our youngsters as the garden area is fully enclosed and the rooms spacious and the facilities top grade. Our toddler also loved the 'Lost Plot' which included a jungle gym and sunken trampoline and more.... Last, but definitely not least, our hosts Andy and Catriona were so welcoming and friendly and made our stay extremely pleasant and comfortable. We would definitely return and recommend to all.

I've been meaning to post this. Apologies to Catriona and Andrew who were superb hosts for not doing so earlier. Fine accommodation and they made one feel perfectly at home, being happy for me to receive a guest as though I belonged there.

We stayed for new year's eve for a few days and was just great. The view is stunning, the guesthouse cosy and charming, Catriona & family the perfect host and the greatest breakfast cook. Knysna is just 10 minutes drive but you wouldn't regret while chilling on the terrace overlooking the bay or herding the kids in the playground on the backyard;) hope to be back soon!

Easy reach of Knysna and all main attractions in area, yet away from hustle and bustle. Set in 22 hectares of grounds with phenomenal views of lagoon. Amazing to wake up and walk on to your own deck with such a view.
We stayed in a family suite with very spacious room and bathroom. Very comfortable indeed.
Lovely grounds and play areas for kids, very safe and a pool too. Loved the extensive honesty bar and great lounge/ communal area with huge fireplace and very comfy chairs.
We'll definitely be back later in the year. :)
