FairyDen Cottage - Visual Tour

PLEASE be patient while it loads: detailed pics are worth it

Fairy Den cottage is a STANDARD level cottage. See detailed facilities here.  These cottages offer excellent value for money.

It is at the Western end of the 5 cottages at Forest Edge, furtherest from the Forest Edge Reception and the only passersby are guests who visit the Woodcutter graves or Donkeys, or staff with operational business in our separate water / tools / wood processing camp. Due to it being quieter especially at dawn or dusk, there is a slightly increased chance of seeing visiting forest wild life. The cottage is quite close to the indigenous Sanparks forest. This cottage is very popular with budget honeymooners or those wanting to be as private as possible.

The below interior and exterior photos of Fairyden were taken since OCT 2013. Gardens change; linen, wall hangings etc get changed or upgraded, so this is meant to be representative. Guest photos are acknowledged in the hover-over.

Private Hide-away Haven

Fairyden offers the clean, comfortable, benchmark standards that have won so many awards for Forest Edge over the years. It has everything you'd expect from an excellent self-catering plus extras like DVD, fireplace, hammock, m/w, hairdryer etc. Fairyden has 2 single beds in the second bedroom, a dining counter in the dining area and a pretty garden area in front of the cottage.

*** IMPORTANT: Please note that we do NOT under any circumstances guarantee a specific cottage where there are more than one available in a specific cottage class. You are welcome to indicate your first and second choice as we obviously want to make you happy where we can, but it is impossible to place all guests in the cottage they want, if it happens to be the same cottage! A shift to a different cottage may be necessitated in the case of an unforseen operational challenge like a burst geyser, for example.
