Gwendolyn's Glade Cottage - a romantic cosy double story with quaint attic bedroom overlooking a pretty lily pond nestled alongside magical forest. Situated on Peace of Eden Backpackers & Vegan Retreat in the heart of the Garden Route just 15 minutes outside Knysna. Please note as a Vegan/Vegetarian Lodge we expect Guests to respect our ethos and not bring any animal meat products onto our property. You can self cater or we offer gorgeous Vegan Breakfasts from R45-R75 & Dinners from R120-R250


This enchanting little double story Cottage nestles on the edge of indigenous forest tucked away behind Knysna, at Peace of Eden eco Backpackers & Traveller's Lodge, in the heart of the Garden Route.
Here, creativity abounds and the sounds and sights of nature will entertain you.We are an eco orientated place where we allow nature to rules, so please do not expect luxury, nor flat screen TV's, and our water is brown as it comes from our pond but very healthy and filtered with sweet natural rain water to drink.

The Cottage accommodates 2 very comfortably upstairs in the romantic attic bedroom with a 3rd bed downstairs at one end of the lounge and at a push can sleep an extra child on a stretcher bed in the lounge or with parents upstairs. It has a cute little open plan kitchen leading onto a veranda overlooking parklike gardens and a lily pond. It has one bathroom with loo and shower.

On site, get in touch with nature and pick veggies and herbs in the organic garden (when its harvet time) feed friendly horses an apple or explore the indigenous forest walks that meander down to a magical little stream where you are bound to have sightings of the stunning Knysna Loerie, shy bush buck and playful vervet monkeys that scamper along the forest canopy.

If you don't feel like cooking, you can order delicious Vegetarian/Vegan breakfasts and dinners to order. If you are a music enthusiast you may just be lucky enough to be visiting when we host an impromptu sunset soiree or are in the midst of recording some of South Africa's top Guitarist's in our award winning Music Studio.

This eco destination is is part of a ‘Conservancy’ in the heart of the Garden Route, only 15 km’s from Knysna along a picturesque country road leading to the vast Millwood Forests where the illusive Knysna elephants still roam in the depths of it's forested ravines. Close to the lagoon, forests and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Buffalo Bay and Brenton on Sea, and with most of the popular attractions and adventure activities of the Garden Route a mere one hours drive away.

Please note as we are a vegan/vegetarian eco lodge no meat is allowed on Peace of Eden.

We had a lovely night's stay. It was just a one night stopover on route and altho we wld have loved to relax longer the place was easy to find (only about 15mins drive out of knysna.) The description is accurate, and gives a good sense of the place (although the photos seem to have been taken less recently, since they differed in minor details, but nothing major). It turns out we cld even have eaten dinner at Peace of Eden if we'd arranged in advance, which is good to know for future (we drove into town which was also nice). The vegan breakfast was totally delicious, and staff/owners welcoming. And a nice tour of the music studio as well. Make sure you check in advance about what your fee covered - I hadn't anticipated the additional breakfast charge on top of our room rate. The accommodation was quirky, quaint, clean. I think the description of the place is clear, but this place isn't for you if you're the kind of person who wants sparkling white bathrooms and tv in bed! This is a place for people who love nature, and enjoy watching butterflies from the stoep and praying mantis' flying round the lamps at night. Just what we were after.

We were welcomed by Jen, a super friendly and relaxed host. We received a free upgrade so we ended up in a large, convenient apartment. We felt sad having to leave after just 1 night as we would have loved to stay at this relaxed place in such a beautiful setting in the nature.

Ответ от Jen:
Thanks Jessica. Glad you appreciated our place. Sorry you had difficulty getting through, the line was busy and perhaps engaged. Always best to ring Hosts in the morning of your departure to ensure contact for arrival. Being our very high season the rates are the highest of the year and not the best time to travel if you looking for cheaper accomm. Glad you appreciated the upgrade ;-). All the best.

A beautiful, tranquil place to stay and a real getaway from the city. We loved petting the two horses near our cabin and the incredible star gazing at night. Beautiful, natural surroundings. Unfortunately we didn't feel that the pictures matched what was advertised on the Airbnb page. The accommodation was very basic.
