Beautiful extra large suite with lounge and dressing room. Comfy king size bed. Jacuzzi on the terrace.

Perfectly located in Harkerville for forest mountainbiking and walls in Garden of Eden.

Lovely breakfast from very helpful staff. Enjoyed it very much.

Thank you Marc Lorenz and team for making our stay so special.

Country Charm at it's best. We stayed for two days and seriously hesitated to leave.

Garden Suite 4 was very spacious and had all the amenities you would expect. Add to this a crackling fire and spa bath and we were totally submerged in relaxation.

Our car had safe parking, we slept undisturbed, enjoyed a hearty breakfast and decided to soak up the sun with a picnic on the Manor grounds. Plett and Knysna are but a stones throw away, with nature right at your doorstep.

Thank you Marc Lorenz and team for making our stay so special.

Edenbrook sits within the Knysna forest. Not only is it such a beautiful and tranquil place to stay, but the staff and establishment manager are exceptional. Do yourself a favor and experience some of the hiking trials in the area too.

Thank you Marc and the Edenbrook staff for making our stay very pleasant. We will be back again soon!

Fantastic host and service. Awesome property. Cosy romantic atmosphere. Easily accessible to the Garden Route attractions. Very accommodating to our specific dietary needs. Nothing was too much. Spacious rooms with all amenities readily available.

Our stay at Edenbrook Country House will not be beaten any time soon.
From our arrival at the establishment, after a long day of travelling, Mark made us feel at home. We were shown to our gorgeous room, which had a view absolutely to die for!

Upon entering our room, we found chocolates, champagne, personalized welcoming letter and our bed beautifully decorated with rose petals.... We mentioned to Mark via email briefly that we will be travelling for our honeymoon, and he went to great lengths to make sure that our stay with Edenbrook was truly a special and memorable one.

Edenbrook is surrounded by a gorgeous forest and lovely well kept gardens and views. I fell in love with the quiet and the tranquility. The breakfast we received was absolutely wonderful!

Edenbrook is situated a mere couple of minutes drive to either Plettenberg Bay or Knysna, making this gem the perfect get away for those who would like to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough to pop out to shop for necessities.

No request was too big or too small for Mark and his staff. We received a beautiful braai kit in order for us to braai when ever we wanted, along with spices, cutlery and crockery. I handed it laundry as well that was done promptly and at no extra charge.

Do not hesitate to book Edenbrook Country House. You will not be disappointed.

We thank the staff at Edenbrook Country House for meeting our greatest expectations. Thank you Mark, for making our honeymoon weekend special and memorable..

Stayed here because we had friends getting married at the elephant park. I think we were lucky because we had the peace and tranquillity of Edenbrook.
Lovely place, beautiful presented, delicious breakfast and wonderful hounds!

Luana & Stefano made us very welcome to their elegant country estate. The surroundings are stunning & tranquil and the accommodation was more like a 'honeymoon suite'. The breakfast was filling, healthy and beautifully served. A must for anyone who wants to escape the rat race!
