Mike & Sue Mills
Belvidere Manor was originally a farm but fell into decline in the 1960's. As Knysna started turning from a little coastal village to a tourist town the farm was bought and restored, the plan for the cottages was laid out, and the residential estate surrounding us was launched. It is now a delightfully tranquil estate, echoing the architecture of Belvidere House, and over 170 bird species have been identified.
Although we were both born in the UK, we have lived in South Africa for most of our lives. Our early married life was spent close to Johannesburg, but we moved to Knysna for a change in lifestyle in 1996 and have never regretted it. Travelling is a wonderful way to learn about our world and its peoples, and we hope our experience enables us to give our guests a great South African experience.
Knysna has consistently been voted South Africa's favourite holiday destination, and everyone remembers holidays here whilst they were growing up! The tranquil lagoon is sheltered from the Indian ocean, and boating, fishing, and relaxed summer days are all part of it. We are fortunate to have some of the best beaches in the country just minutes away, and awesome walking and biking trails in the hills that rise to the back of the town.
