I love back roads, forests, wilderness and the sounds of nature. Given that I live in a city, my holiday happiness depends on finding these things, no matter where I go. At Cliffhanger cottages near Knysna on the Garden Route I learnt how to escape to the country and sweep away the city dust.
We stayed in Cliffedge cottage and loved its open-plan spaciousness, its wide sliding doors to a full-length deck where we could sit and absorb the sights and sounds of nature. A pottery dish on the deck was plumbed into a bird bath in the fynbos below so we could top it up to lure the resident birds into drinking and splashing.
Would I visit again? In a heartbeat. Only this time I’d stay longer.
Note: We were guests of Cliffhanger Cottages for one night but the opinions are mine.
