Stay in the natural paradise of Knysna

A strip of lush green grass is all that sits between The St James of Knysna and the tranquil shores of Knysna Lagoon. Two pools, a large Koi pond and a private jetty make up the grounds that look out to the dramatic Knysna Heads. With an Old English feel about it, a highlight of this country house is its Twin Palm Restaurant which serves sensational meals – enjoy local cuisine accompanied by regional wines. To really appreciate your surrounds, head out and dine on the terrace.
