Honeymoon, casual luxury, romantic hideaways available for you to consider. Built at treetop height, all have awesome amphitheatre views of the deep indigenous forest, valleys and mountains surrounding Knysna.

The cottages are stylishly furnished with a natural contemporary feel. The rooms either have queen-size beds or double beds with quality linens, as well as a Jacuzzi/hydro-spa bath, one room has a hydro tub, opens to the gorgeous view from the deck.

We supply invigorating bath goodies and lots of candles for you to use; bubble away and sip on some champagne or wine brought to you. There are also showers in some of the en-suite bathrooms.

The lounges have wood-burning fireplaces, and wood is placed on the deck for purchase. During winter, we supply firewood at R50 a grain sack full. DStv and CD players are provided in each cottage, and the kitchens are fully equipped for self-catering, including microwaves, small ovens and fridge-freezers.

Some units have private courtyards and lapas, where you can really enjoy the forest night calls. All have private decks with tables and chairs, to enjoy the awesome views.

There is also a plunge pool to use in the muggy weather, with all-around seating and overlooking the magnificent views. More braai areas are sited here if you want to make a day of it.

The housekeepers service the cottages midway into your stay, where they will make beds, wash dishes, and clean Weber barbecues and fireplaces; towels are changed every second day. This excludes Sundays and public holidays.

A winter special runs from May to June, July 15 to 30 July and throughout August. We are on the Cape Town side of Knysna, the lovely forested side. Forrest Valley Cottages are situated 12 kilometres out of Knysna and 15 kilometres from the centre of town, close to beaches and forests, it is private and safe.

My husband and I enjoyed a mid-week break and we want to thank Mark and the staff for a truly memorable experience. The cottage is beautifully situated; the views breath-taking and the atmosphere is as serene and peaceful as advertised. The pictures on your website give a glimpse of paradise and that is exactly what we found! Thank You - we will definitely recommend Forest Valley Cottages to all couples wanting that romance and privacy essential to "Quality Time!"

Thank you owners of Forest Valley Cottages, for creating an atmosphere of calmness and pure bliss. Waking up to the sounds of chirping birds was awesome. We had a wonderful weekend. Wish we could stay longer. The cottage was clean and neat. The fireplace worked perfectly and kept the cottage warm.
