Stayed here for two nights in a 2-person chalet, very small and comfortable. The chalet was a good price and had everything we needed. The location is perfect, really close to anything you need/want with Senza and East Head restaurants close by which I really recommend - both are lovely. Owners are lovely and happy to help! I do wish...

After a long drive and some false readings from Lucy (our GPS) who sent us anywhere but where we wanted to go, we finally arrived. Our hostess was very friendly and welcoming and suggested the best place to camp according to our needs. We found a spot near to, but not too close to, an ablution block. Just a word...

Woodbourne resort is situated close to the Knysna Heads and Knysna lagoon. The camp site is well maintained. Most of the camp site is situated below shaded trees. The Heads is an easy walk from the resort. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Lovely campsite, nice pool .Showers in main ablution impossible to regulate....really need to spend money on the hot water system and Loo's don't flush properly. Also no laundry facility which was quite a pain as one needs to drive to town to get clothes washed ...Otherwise good but could be great !

We do advertise this on our rules and info sheet handed out to guests and also...

Wow, this was such a lovely experience. I didn't know but Mom and Dad in Plett told me that they knew the Dutthey's that apparently owned the caravan park when I was very small (special memories there for them). We were a running club that booked in for the Knysna Forest Marthon. Sites big, electricity, running water, services toilets &...

We spent 2 nights with our friends in two bed room chalet. The chalet was equipped with everything to be self-catering. The beds were comfortable and so were the bathrooms.

We once again stayed at Woodbourne and were not disappointed! The staff are super friendly - they go out their way to assist and advise and keep a tight reign on the goings-on in the campsite and resort (real hands-on!). The campsites are large, grassed and well maintained. Ablutions are cleaned regularly and are fine and there was always plenty...

Our stay at Woodbourne was short (only 1 night) but we have to say that reception was excellent and the cottage was both clean and well appointed. We will certainly return to this resort as we were very impressed with the service from the staff.

The location is perfect, situated close to the heads an Knysna lagoon. It is only 5 minutes from town and walking distance from a amazing lookout point on one of the heads. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Facilities are also very satisfying.
