We loved every moment of our stay. Hill cottage was wonderful. Great amenities and total privacy. The setting is out of this world and as avid mountain bikers to be on the edge of the Knysna forest was the highlight. We will definitely be back.

Warm reception, and a very nice breakfast. The Estate has got a lovely view, and if time permitted, we would have enjoyed a swim in the lovely pool.
