This charming home comprises 4 bedrooms as well as 2 bathrooms and a guest toilet. The main bedroom has a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third and fourth bedroom each has 2 single beds. There is a well-appointed kitchen, fitted with everything you will need for self-catering. There is also a large lounge, with comfortable furniture and a TV, a dining room, as well as a lovely enclosed entertainment room with a built-in braai, overlooking the garden.

The house is located close to the Woodville Big Tree, the map of Africa and horse riding. Wilderness and Sedgefield are nearby where one can enjoy the many beaches and restaurants if you don't want to cook at home.

Knysna is only 45 minute drive away and Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn is about an hour's drive.

Area Information:

Just 10km inland from Wilderness lays the little village of Hoekwil. What used to be an undiscovered farming community lies in a crook of the Touws River and is described by those who live there as a 'piece of paradise'.
Hoekwil's residents, though, are a little loathe to make too much of a song and dance about their little town, or it will become inundated with others after an alternative, country lifestyle. But they are only too happy to encourage you to visit.
The town, which sits perched above the coastline with beautiful views of sea, lake and mountains consists of little more than a church, a post office, a primary school, a couple of shops and a very large tree, known as the 'Big Tree' – a yellowwood tree thought to be as old as 850 years.

You will find the tree on a clearly marked hike, known as the Woodville Hiking trail, that takes one into a nearby forest, a circular trail that is only 2km in its entirety and passes a number of labelled trees for everyone's edification.

Hoekwill has its own tourist route too. It is a 30km circular route that starts in Wilderness, travels up the Serpentine mountain pass through the village of Hoekwil and the farming communities at the foot of the Outeniqua mountains, and then back down through the lakes district. En route are a series of farm stalls , restaurants, artist's galleries and accommodation venues.

And if you've done the whole tourist thing there is always Wilderness beach or Victoria Bay to which to escape. Personally, I'd rather languish somewhere in Hoekwil, where no-one knows you or cares that you prefer simply to read the weekend away.
