"This is a beautiful country house set in lovely gardens just off N2, 5 minutes from Knysna. I really liked it here. The staff are fantastic! It feels like a proper country house. The rooms have a contemporary modern feel to them, but with subtle hints to remind guests that they are in South Africa."
