Score from 90 reviews Wonderful
The interior of the house is very cozy. The kitchen is fully equipped which was perfect for our barbecue. The beach at the hotel is also very great. Nothing more to add.
From the moment we entered Skylark Cottage until we booked out, our time at Under Milkwood was fantastic. The view, the private deck, the comfortable interior and just everything was superb. Considering that this used to be my husband's play area (veggie garden when they owned Beach House Hotel), it brought back great childhood memories for him.
The setting of Under Milkwood always makes it special.You have your own little beach with canoe's to use, and the kids are occupied all the time so it is relaxing, private and stunning.
very close to the sea with canoe to enjoy. Wood for barbecue available

The welcome by friendly receptionist, The location at the heads, The setting, under the Milkwood trees, The fully fitted kitchen with all the Le creuset equipment to test/use Cleanliness of cottage, The free use of kayak's to explore the waters of the Knysna lagoon, Within walking distance of one of the best cafes in Knysna, East Head Cafe and if you're fit a walk to the top of the heads with one of the most beautiful views
The fact that there is such a huge price difference between front cabins, middle cabins and upper cabins. I agree there should be a price difference but not as it is.

We liked everything about our stay. We stayed in Bottom Cottage and, as always, it was welcoming, clean and warm. The views over the lagoon are stunning. We love the idea of the chalets being built around (and in some instances onto) the beautiful old mildwood trees. The staff are friendly and helpfull, but also unobtrusive. We've been to Under Milkwood a number of times, and will keep going back.
Friendly, helpful staff, excellent accommodation and great views.
No air cons in chalet

The service was exceptional at all levels. Having the private, sandy beach and kayaking was priceless. The plants and birds and views of the Knysnsa lagoon made it such a wonderfully restful stay.
