GETAWAY Magazine

Forest Edge as one of the TOP 10 affordable Romantic Breaks in South Africa

Getaway Magazine’s 2012 August edition ran a popular article “Romance on a purse-string – don’t let a tight budget hold you back – treat your love to one of these secluded breaks” by Meg de Jong. AFFORDABLE TRAVEL – ROMANTIC BREAKS – We are very proud that Forest Edge featured!


Everything at this tranquil spot on the outskirts of Knysna is picturesque, especially the two doe-eyed donkeys named Hansel and Gretel, who love an apple before a pat and a photograph.

Geared for romance, you’ll love that each of the five little corrugated-iron cabins has a private braai, an outdoor shower and oh-so-comfortable hammock, which is perfect for a snuggle if you can get your balance right.

Cosy up in front of a fire with a DVD or a book from the collection in the lounge or take a candlelit soak in the bath.

Even if you are not newly-weds, spoil yourself a little and take advantage of the honeymoon package which includes extras such as champagne, chocolates, bubble bath and petals on the bed.

Don’t forget there is loads to see and do in the area. Pack a picnic and venture out of your love nest for a hike – there’s one just outside Forest Edge, which leads to a secluded rock pool. Ask owner Ronel Pieterse to organise a permit.

Self-catering cottages cost from Rxxx a night for two people. The most popular Honeymoon Package is Rxxxx a couple for four nights midweek and it includes all the extras, plus discount vouchers at local restaurants, massage therapists, canoe and bike hire and much more.
