“We had a really nice stay at Forest Edge. The Cottages are very nice with a big garden and clear skies at night. We were using the braai and it’s a short drive to Knysna where you can find the best oysters. It’s highly recommended to stay some days at Forest Edge if you want to relax and enjoy a quiet place on the Garden Route.” – Andy TripAdvisor.
