Kees & Kay are such genuine loving people who made our wedding day so special. Their organisation skills, attention to detail, prompt communications made our day run smoothly. The food was a highlight. Everything was delicious from the canapes to the main to the dessert. We couldn't have planned our Wedding without them. If you are looking for an exceptional wedding venue and food that's out of this world, I can't recommend Knapdale enough !

We had a fantastic stay at Knapdale Eco Lodge. The room was spacious, clean and totally comfortable with a beautiful view of the farmland. Knapdale is a very nice and peaceful place, where you can really relax. The breakfast was just great and dinner was awesome. Kay is a fantastic cook. An absolute highlight was also the walk with Kees across the farmland with all the animals (sheep, cattle, swan, ducks and of course the dogs) . We were so friendly and warmly received and felt almost like old friends. We had the impression that our wishes were read from our eyes. Thank you so much, Kay and Kees for this unforgettable stay! All the best to you.

Kees, Kay and their team were nothing short of amazing - we simply couldn't have done it without their organisation, attention to detail, prompt communications and genuine interest in us personally. We planned out wedding with them while we were overseas and they made our day as easy as possible for us. Lovely people and great venue!

I was fortunate enough to visit this lovely lodge in December. I went with a group of people forc clay bird shooting and dinner. We were greeted by the lovely host and told a bit about the beautiful place and told what to expect when we went clay bird shooting. Our host was very professional and helpful. We walked across the farm to shoot and then walked back again for dinner. We had drinks and entrees outside. The seating and views were wonderful. It was hard to tear ourselves away to go inside for dinner. Our host lit the outside fire for us and the atmosphere was amazing. I was expecting something special for dinner and I wasn’t disappointed. The meal was excellent, the staff were very friendly. It was a night to remember and I would highly recommend this very special place with such wonderful friendly hosts.
