Fern Gully is a macadamia farm, 18kms outside Knysna on the Rheenendal road to the historical Millwood Goldmines and the Goudveld indigenous forest.
A visit to the site of the old goldmines at Millwood or a walk and picnic at Jubilee Creek, is a 15 minute car drive away. Buffels Bay, popular for swimming and surfing, is the nearest beach and hiking, biking and horse trails are within close vicinity.
The gully that gave the farm its name runs through the bottom half of the land and the cabins, being built on stilts, at the edge of the gorge give the impression and ambiance of being in the tree tops. They are so positioned as to provide maximum seclusion and privacy and each cabin’s deck faces its own view through the trees.
Fern Gully Forest Cabins are within easy access to Knysna and Sedgefield and all the scenic and recreational activities they have to offer.
The cabin’s are uniquely different and each one has it’s own distinct appeal.
Each cabin is fully furnished and equipped for self-catering ease. Fridge, hot-plate, microwave, crockery, glassware, cookware, bedding, and bath towels. TV reception is poor in the forest so a DVD player is available for movie watching. Braai facilities are on the deck and as well as an indoor shower, there is a hot & cold outside shower.
