About Eastford Country Estates

6 Luxurious self-catering, 3 bedroomed houses, fully equipped and serviced holiday homes in an exclusive nature reserve, overlooking the Knysna Lagoon & Heads, Knysna River and Outeniqua Mountains. Each self-catering unit has TV, Hi-Fi and dishwasher.
Relax on your secluded deck in the peaceful serenity of a private nature reserve. Gaze from the sprawling Outeniqua Mountains to the tranquil beauty of Knysna's Lagoon and its fabled Heads. Eastford Country Estate is high on the hillside, yet is a mere five minute drive from Knysna town. Extremely private and comfortable, contemporary cottages are spacious and each has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, verandah with braai area and elevated deck. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, a spacious lounge and dining room with TV and CD/Hi-Fi. Serviced daily.
Knysna: A vast lagoon entering the Indian Ocean between massive sandstone cliffs. 65,000 hectares of evergreen forest. The unique Cape fynbos. An unspoiled coastline with miles of golden beaches. The Outeniqua Mountains in the background.
Lagoons and headlands give character to its waters. Rivers and forests add texture to its land. Friendly people, fiercely proud of the beauty surrounding them, bring it all to life.
Knysna offers superb shopping – influenced by international trends – as well as restaurants serving everything from the famous Knysna oyster to sushi and fusion.
Three premier golf courses – and another 20 within close driving distance – luxury accommodation, bustling waterside cafés, art galleries, boutiques and authentic African traders.
Whatever the season, Knysna stays green. Its warm, temperate climate makes it the perfect all-year-round destination. A place where days are packed with promise.
Knysna... Sunny. Bright. Clear.
Experience the thrill of high-speed mountain biking through indigenous forests or dive the depths of the lagoon. Hire a kayak to tour the winding Knysna river, or – for an aerial view – raise the heartbeat with an abseil above the ocean’s crashing waves. Quad bike along a dusty path or ride a horse along the water's edge. Try fly fishing, rock-and-surf angling or deep-sea fishing. Or, for the daring, dune-surf down sandy waves, kite-surf on the waters of the lagoon or paraglide over the hills and lakes.
Take a cruise across the lagoon or out to sea on a stylish yacht or a ferry. Hire a bicycle and tour the town ...or visit the Elephant Park and experience a closeness with nature unlike anything you’ve ever felt before.
Encircled by reserves and situated within a national park – in Knysna, there's nature wherever you look. The Knysna forests and the Indian Ocean, the Cape fynbos, freshwater lakes, saltwater lagoons and tidal estuaries are all easy to explore by car or on foot.
The flash of a Knysna loerie as it glides. The gentle swaying of a Knysna seahorse as it feeds. A right whale as it breaches just off shore...
Stroll on an unspoiled beach. Follow a hiking trail. Take in a sunset across the lagoon. Or listen for the haunting call of a fish eagle high above the river. Discover nature reserves, private game parks and the Knysna National Park on ferry tours, game walks and game drives. Dive shipwrecks or see fish in their natural habitat. Ride a bicycle. Take a walk. Or just breathe...

Dit was baie lekker om daar te bly, die mense is gasvry en vriendelik en baie hulpvaardig. Die huise is netjies, tuine is pragtig en word goed in stand gehou. Die huis was sentraal gelee. Ons sal die plek aanbeveel.It was very nice to stay here. The people were hospitable, friendly and very helpful. The house is neat, gardens are pretty and well kept. Centrally located. We will recommend it.
