We stayed at the Fernery in February for three nights with friends, we stayed in a beautiful spacious cabin, our friends stayed in a small but very comfortable room in the main house. It is a beautiful place to stay and very relaxing, a lovely swimming pool and area. There is a rather long bumpy drive up to the Fernery...

We had a beautiful, fully equipped lodge with plunge pool on the extensive deck. We overlooked a ravine with small stream running through it. The restaurant had a small menu but each dish was amazing. Signature dishes being the belly of Pork and the Sole. We tried both and they were delicious. One evening we took advantage of the offer...

A wonderful getaway with longstanding friends. Within easy reach of Plett/Knysna. It was interesting visiting the nursery and indoor garden. The purchase of plants was a bit of a hassle because payment could only be made at Reception and they had no idea of prices!
