About Eden

Eden Cottage is in the delightful village of Sedgefield. Just a few minutes drive from Knysna and within walking distance to some beautiful beaches, the lagoon and shops. Eden Cottage is within easy reach of George and Plettenberg.

Various arts and crafts are on display throughout the year. Come join us every Saturday morning at the Wild Oats Farmer's Market just outside town next to the N2 motorway en-route to Wilderness. Bird watching is one of the most enjoyed activities as there are numerous species that only live in this area, so bring along your binoculars and bird books! We have a number of magnificent beaches around the village.

The main beach, where Swartvlei Lake meets the ocean is popular for families. Myoli and Cola beach join to give endless white sand where one can walk safely and admire the beauty and tranquility. Swartvlei beach offers horseback access and leads to Gericke's Point, which is accessible at low tide and is excellent for snorkeling and exploring the tidal pools. To the east of the town is Groenvlei - a fresh water lake famous for its bass fishing and this forms part of the Goukamma Nature Reserve with its abundance of bird life. 

So many fun and memorable activities are available for the holiday visitor; paragliding is a must with a tandem jump from the top of the dunes or spend the day on a combined canoe/bush hike in the nature reserve to see the many beautiful birds in the area. Go a little further afield and enjoy the famous treetop canopy tour on a zip line, or go game watching in an open vehicle or on horseback. Then there are the wolves, elephants, monkeys and birds to see as well as catching a pleasure boat to the Heads in Knysna and enjoying a guided hike to enjoy the most spectacular views of the ocean and estuary. Beaches, paint ball games, shopping, fine dining, cave exploring, catching a steam train, diving with crocodiles and just enjoying nature at its best.

Ons het die wonderlikste tyd gehad. Ons was op soek na rus en ontspan en dit is wat ons gekry het.Die plekkie is lieflik, privaat, netjies en alles wat jy nodig het.

A nice enough place but at the back of the house. Guess I was expecting something with more of a view. Had to wash all the crockery, cutlery, pots and pans before using as it was so dirty. Overall and for the price probably not bad as the intention was not to spend too much time there. Maybe the owner can be a bit friendlier? ???

A lovely friendly host and a unit that was comfortable and exceeded expectations! Close to the main shops and the Segefield Arms which is a good place to eat if you don't want to cook. We thoroughly enjoyed it here and hope to return.
