Forest Hills Self-catering Cottages is situated in Knysna and is an ideal spot for couples, families and nature lovers to relax and unwind. The self-catering accommodation is set in private indigenous gardens and lawns that lead to the natural forest.

Accommodation is offered in 2 self-catering cottages; Taaibos and Forest View. Taaibos Cottage can accommodate up to 5 guests and Forest View is a couples retreat. Taaibos Cottage is a historical 2-bedroom traditional thatched round house, comprising 3 joined rondavels. The cottage is privately positioned and comfy, and features a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a bath and shower, a lounge and 2 bedrooms. From the large deck guests can braai and enjoy lovely views of the indigenous forest and the Outeniqua mountains in the distance.

Sagewood Cottage is a spacious 1-bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a lounge, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. This cottage has a large verandah that looks out across the forest valley to the mountains in the distance. Each cottage is equipped for self-catering with a fridge, an oven and stove and a microwave.

Facilities on the property include a swimming pool with a pool slide, and a trampoline. Paths from the gardens lead to a short circular walk around the property, through forest, fynbos, past a dam and a large lookout deck on the edge of the forest. If you are lucky you may spot bushbuck, boar, caracal, monkeys and baboons that visit Forest Hills occasionally. The Knysna loerie can often be seen with a flash of red as it swoops along the forest edge, and at times the call of the fish eagle can be heard. Forest Hills is a birders paradise.

Forest Hills Self-catering Cottages is conveniently positioned 16 km from Knysna and 20 km from Buffels Bay. The forest offers several day hikes and mountain-bike tracks, as well as picnic spots along the river. Buffels Bay has a swimming beach and unspoilt stretches of coastline.
