Lily Pond Deck – Knysna Forest Venue
Our newly build, rustic, 64 square meter, under-roof Lily Pond Deck, is the ideal place for our guests to enjoy a wholesome Farmhouse Breakfast or an unforgettable Wellness Retreat.
Nestled against the ancient and magical Knysna forest and overlooking a mesmerizing Lily Pond, nature is the perfect backdrop. Lily Pond Deck can comfortably accommodate 40 guests.
No loud music, deck closes at 10pm and events are only organized for in-house guests, so all 5 cottages must be hired for minimum 2 nights over weekends.
Closed during December Peak Season.
