Charming cottage, quiet and peaceful
Well equipped and clean, interesting to have the horses around, close enough to the N2 to take you to Plett or Knysna within 15 mins. Authentic small holding stay. Cottage heats up in sunny weather, but cools down fast enough with all doors and windows open. Loved it to spend time here!

Piece of heaven!
What a fantastic weekend away at Angels Rest! Liz warmly welcomed us as we arrived and were even treated with a basket of goodies which was really unexpected and so thoughtful. Merlin's cottage is just the place if you are looking to rest and recuperate... surrounded by the beautiful surroundings and horses that freely roam the farm added that something special! With two small children this cottage was ideal! Fitted with all the home comforts. Liz has gone out of her way to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We've been to many similar accommodation types but there is definitely something uniquely different about Angels Rest - you will not be sorry! Thanks again Liz, see you next year again!

What an Amazing Place!
Angels Rest. How to explain our time there? The sentence needs to have the words "beautiful, peaceful, amazing, special, service! friendly!". The list really goes on. And please do not forget the hospitality of Liz and Hannes. We had the time time and will recommend Angels Rest!

Peaceful, happy place
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Angels Rest Farm - what a happy, peaceful place. Our toddler loved the free-roaming horses! The cottage is also thoughtfully designed and very comfortable. I was very impressed by the fact that the entire farm is off the grid - rain water and solar only, but everything works as normal! We slept so well and rested out that the weekend felt like a short holiday instead. Thanks Liz and Hannes for being such kind hosts.

A Little Piece of Heaven
Anyone looking for a little piece of heaven for a getaway should definitely try Angel's Rest farm, 20 mins from Knysna, 10 mins from Plett. We were greeted by Liz with a basket of fresh farm eggs and wild porcini mushrooms, with 11 free-roaming, apple-demanding horses in tow. With forests and dams to explore and lots of space for the kids to run around, the weekend felt like a whole week away!

What a wonderful place
We’re a family of four, with two children aged 8 and 10 and we spent 5 days at Angels Rest farm during July. It really was a wonderful experience despite the fact that it was winter time. The cottage is really well equipped and spacious and beautifully located on the farm. The fireplace made for cosy family evenings playing some of the games provided in front of the fire. The farm itself contains a section of forest which is big enough for the kids to have a real adventure without you having to worry about them getting lost and of course the horses and other animals make it a real farm experience. It was love at first sight between the horses and the kids and the daily handing out of carrots and apples was a definite highlight. (Hannes made sure that they knew how to be safe around the horses on day one) We also found the farm to be well located, and central to a lot of the tourist activities in the area. We did the elephant park, the big cats, the tree top adventures and we hiked at Robberg. All and all a great time. Liz and Hannes can really be commended for the way that they made us feel welcome, spoiled us with jam, eggs and chocolate cake, and patiently dealt with our kids who had lots of questions about the farm. It’s a wonderful place and we will most certainly be back.

Our rest with the Angels
We had a most glorius stay at Angels Rest. What a welcome, what hospitality. We had the freedom to come and go anywhere on the farm and got a tour of the vegetable/herb garden. Anita even got a chicken tour. Agnes overcame her fear of horses and discovered they had the gentlest souls and Bert experienced his first South African Braai. What a fabulous time. Friends joined us for an evening meal and our hostess generously supplied herbs from the garden. We loved the decor and felt rested after two days. I most definately will return.

A beautiful place
We spent 4 wonderful days at Angels Rest and cannot recommend it enough. Conveniently located, yet peacefully tucked away. We were able to explore the attractions of Knysna and Plett and then come back to Merlins Cottage and kick back and relax. The children loved all the animals but especially the horses and we all loved the space.

Hannes and his horses looked after us extremely well in Liz's absence. Angel's Rest was perfect for our family, well located in tranquil forest between Knysna and Plett just off the N2. Thanks to Hannes for the birthday cake (hope to try his famous omlette next time) and always lots of generous hospitality.
