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.
LILY POND BREAKFAST – R115 / Adult, R85 / Child
Cold Continental meets Hot Farmhouse to deliver the perfect Breakfast in an amazing natural setting on the deck – just the way to start your day.
We DO also offer a traditional braai pack that you can pre-order, to cook in the comfort & privacy of your cottage. Our food packs are made up from quality & organic produce. Rather than a budget meal; we save you a shopping trip when you’d rather just chill. Arrive, cosy up, braai when it suits you; without having to dress or stress!
UNDER AFRICAN SKIES – BRAAI PACK (self service in-cottage) – R180
1x Traditional Boerewors piece
1x Chicken Thigh
1x Jacket Potato in tin foil with butter, for cooking in the coals
1x typical South African ‘Braai Broodjie’ – 2 slices Tomato, Cheese and Onion to add as filling, to grill over hot coals
Here’s how it works:
- Pre-order when you book by selecting the extras offered during online booking, OR just email us with your requirements.
- Once checked in, pre-order at least 1 day ahead of your required meal – this can be arranged with reception.
- We keep stock for average demand; avoid disappointment (e.g. sudden large orders on busy days) – so give us a couple days’ notice to be sure.
- Food order service not available on Sundays / Public Holidays.
- Orders need to be pre-paid either when placed, or in cash on arrival.
- These packs/meals are based on a per-person basis.
- You can also pre-order fire wood and even cottage servicing for your cooking day so that you can leave the mess for us…
