    Beautiful self catering cottage on the edge of the Knysna forest. Lots of peace and quiet and some beautiful forest walks for the more energetic. Cottage is well equiped for all your needs away from home.

    Wonderful place to stay. More luxurios than most places. Kitchen a bit on the small size, but the rest compensated more than enough. I can recommend Forest Edge to every one who loves to be at a quite and tranguil place and stay in luxury.
