Falcons View Manor


Majestic views from Falcons View Manor

The sprawling terrace of Falcons View Manor overlooks the town of Knysna, its lagoon, islands and the famous Knysna Heads. This Victorian-style house, built in 1894, is dripping in old-world charm and comes with a history inextricably linked to the town and one of its oldest families. This stunning country house retreat is the perfect host to visitors exploring the Garden Route.

South Africa’s Garden Route is one of contrasts. Its sheer valleys and mountains are overgrown with lush Afromontane forest, while its beaches extend for miles in every direction, broken here and there by emerging river mouths. Visitors can enjoy nature trails in the Knysna Forest, trips to the elephant sanctuary and Plettenberg Bay Private Game Reserve, or breakfast at the Wild Oats Community Farmers’ Market nearby Sedgefield.

Guests can stay in Falcons View’s Manor Room, Manor Superior Room, Garden Superior Room or Garden Suite, with the latter two boasting private terraces. All have en-suite bathrooms, king-size beds and views of either the forest or garden. Enjoy afternoon tea in the Tea Garden or on the verandah and dinners at the manor’s restaurant.
