About Yellowwood Forest

Yellowwood Forest offers an unconventional camping experience for nature lovers and family holidays. This unique forest retreat on the bank of the Inchara River is 1km from Morgan bay beach. Its 30 camp sites, rustic self catering cabins and new luxury self catering Cob Cottage, all break with tradition in a variety of delightful ways.

Yellowwood is a peaceful place surrounded by enormous trees and lush riverine vegetation; a tranquil, bird watchers paradise. This Eco-friendly site is protected from the wind and sun. It has a gift shop, licensed tea garden restaurant, pizzeria and Dstv sport on the big screen. Wireless Internet and pre-paid vouchers are available and there’s firewood for sale.

There are bunnies, guinea pigs, birds and a magical playground with a tree house. The decks, ladders, bridge, swings, slides, trampolines, toys, bikes and carts will keep kids amused, so come hungry and make yourself at home.

The river has a small natural swimming hole with high rocks surrounding it from which to do bomb drops and forest trails to explore. Bring your bicycle! A short walk / ride away is the Morgan Bay dam for Bass fishing, swimming and canoeing.

We stayed for two nights in the romantic loft room. Sean looked after us exceptionally well, he was always ready to help and very accommodating. The campsite is in a beautiful location with nice walks into the forest and a cool swimming spot close by. It's a short drive to Morgan bay. The market on Saturdays is nice too. In short, very friendly staff and a beautiful, peaceful place.

...if you want to run away from JHB. Environmentally friendly, lovely people, gorgeous dogs. Pizza in fully vegetarian oven. The cottage we stayed in was a dream. Better than in the pictures. Only thing to keep in mind: if you have a bad back, make arrangements about mattress. Otherwise, fabulous:  fully recommend it. ESTABLISHMENT RESPONSE:We are grateful for the review as we hadn't slept in the beds ourselves- as a result of the review we have replaced all the mattresses with brand new spring mattresses- awesome sleep and no bad back guaranteed!Kind regards Sean & Robyn

Thank you so much for your hospitality and making us feel welcome.. There's only one word to describe the Cob Cottage and Footprints Festival in a nutshell, awesome! We found everything in order and enjoyed every minute, too short! Can't wait to book for longer next time!:-)
