Fern Gully Forest Cabins . . . the perfect getaway for ultimate relaxation . . .

The gully that gave the farm its name runs through the bottom half of the land. The cabins, being built on stilts at the edge of a gorge, give the impression and ambience of being in the tree tops. They are so positioned as to provide maximum seclusion and privacy and each one’s deck faces its own view through the trees.

The cabins are solely Rob’s design and creation and being uniquely different, each one has its own distinct appeal.

Each cabin is fully furnished and equipped for self-catering ease: fridge, hot-plate, microwave, crockery, glassware, cookware etc., and bedding and bath towels are provided. All the cabins have an indoor shower and loo and an additional hot & cold outside shower and braai facilities on the deck. TV reception is poor in the forest, so a DVD player has been installed for movie watching. The cabins do not have fire-places but heater wall-units.

hoopoe 1Slightly more spacious than Owl, and is decorated in the colours of the beautiful Hoopoe – its outdoor shower has an even more spectacular view through the tree tops. It is frequently visited by a troop of vervet monkeys and Fern Gully’s resident lourie.
