About Forest Hills Cottages

Forest Hills is the perfect place for couples, families and nature lovers to relax and unwind. We offer casual self-catering accommodation set in private indigenous gardens and lawns that lead to the natural forest . Paths from the gardens lead you to a short circular walk around the property through forest, fynbos, passed a dam and a large lookout deck on the edge of the forest. If you are lucky you may catch sight of the bushbuck, boar, caracal, monkeys and baboons that visit Forest Hills. The knysna lourie can often be seen with a flash of red as it swoops along the forest edge and at times fish eagles call from up high. A true birders paradise.

Facilities include a large swimming pool with a slide and trampoline.
Forest Hills is also pet friendly.

We are conveniently positioned 15 minutes from Knysna, Buffalo Bay and the National forest. The forest offers several day hikes and mountain bike tracks as well as picnic spots along the river. Buffalo Bay is a prefect swimming beach and has extraordinary unspoiled stretches of coastline to walk.

Family friendly: Forest Hills has walks, a dam to investigate, a slide at the pool side and a trampoline. Taaibos Cottage is a fun house with it's unique round rooms. Buffalo Bay and the National Forest are both 15minutes away.

Romantic: Forest View is the perfect hideaway for couples wanting a private time in the country. The bedroom has a large wood burning fire place for cozy romantic nights and the viewing deck is perfect for sundowners.

          Very pretty garden overlooking forested mountains. Lovely airy building with great linen. The walks connected to the cottage are short and the dam at the time I stayed was almost dry. Good place to relax.
