Foxglove Cottage - Visual Tour

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

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

Foxglove cottage is near the Western end of the road (also away from the busy reception area) with a nice space in front of it overlooking the indigenous Sanparks forest, and overlooking extensive gardens to the right. Sometimes bushbuck like to rest in the shade under this cottage and Knysna Loeries and other forest birds are often seen in the tall Forest trees in front of it.

This cottage is popular with families, and groups of mountain-bikers who often book Fairy Den and Foxglove to be close together, pensioners who enjoy gardens and bird-watching, and budget honeymooners.

The below interior and exterior photos of Foxglove 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.

Gorgeous Garden Delight

Foxglove 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. Foxglove has 2 single beds in the second bedroom, a dining counter in the dining area and a picnic bench in a little secluded 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.
