The uniquely built wooden cabins at Fern Gully are set amongst the trees where one can enjoy the serenity of the forest and birdlife, if you are lucky, you may get a visit from a Knysna Lourie or monkey. Each cabin is built on stilts at the edge of a gorge, tucked in the forest, giving the guests the experience of living amongst the trees.

Each cabin is fully furnished and equipped with a fridge, hot plate, microwave, crockery, glassware, cookware, etc, bedding and bath towels, and braai facilities on the deck, indoor shower, and outdoor shower, so you can be naked in the forest.
Wifi is available, please note, we are in the countryside, so it's not the fastest.

To see the Loerie on your doorstep in the morning is truly an experience one cannot describe! So special. The place is private and peaceful and perfect to switch off and relax - embracing nature. We loved the occasional visit from the friendly doggies as well :)

Best place if you just want to disconnect from the world. Friendly service and felt welcome from the start. Loved the bird life and sounds from the deck. Will definitely be going back.

Thanks for great weekend...

My family and I had an absolutely FABULOUS time at the Fern Gully Forest Cabins. The cabins were logically and well equipped and we were definitely able to experience the forestry lifestyle. It was closely situated to beautiful beaches and the hospitality offered by the hosts was excessively welcoming. We will definitely refer our friends and family and shall return for future holidays. THANK YOU Fern Gully Forest Cabins, Robert and Michelle.

We spent an amazing 9 nights at Fern Gully Forest Cabins in the Hoopoe cabin. It really feels like you are living among the tree tops. The cabin is spacious and fully equipped with everything you need. We loved the outside shower! We were visited by two Knysna Loeries every morning and evening. We loved our stay at Fern Gully!

We had a fantastic stay at Fern Gulley. The cabin is rustic and cozy and it feels like you are living in the forest. Great that it is pet friendly, there is a beautiful big Macadamia nut orchard that our dog enjoyed running and exploring in. The accommodation is close to some beautiful forest passes and there is the beautiful secluded, safe dog friendly, Coala beach a short drive away. Knysna forest Loeries also came to visit every morning. We will be back!
