The Studio @ Mount View Lodge is an upmarket pet-friendly studio, featured in the Getaway magazine, and designed to sit unobtrusively in a rural setting.

Just off the Barrington Road, the setting is safe and peaceful, and encourages rest and rejuvenation. It boasts beautiful views over farmland to the mountains and forests, but is only a 15 minute drive to Sedgefield and 25 minutes to Knysna and Wilderness.

The property is fully fenced to ensure that your pet is safe.

The space
The studio offers a spacious and sunny lounge, kitchen and dining area with gorgeous views out over farmland to the mountains. There is an indoor wood burning fireplace for romantic cosy winter evenings, and wide concertina doors that can be flung open to let the summer breeze, sunshine and birdsong in.

A feature bathroom allows you to commune with nature, and luxurious bedding on the King sized bed (or 2 singles) allows for peaceful sleep with only the sounds of nature as your companion.

The kitchen has a 2 plate gas hob, a microwave and decent sized fridge, and is well equipped for stay-in meal prep.

A paved patio area under a pergola has glorious views onto the Outeniqua mountain range, perfect for sundowners and a braai after a day exploring, or for simply soaking up the sun in a quiet and relaxing environment.

Large windows and doors look out onto greenery planted to encourage birds, butterflies and bees. A small enclosed lawned area makes it pet friendly too!

Guest access
Access to a herb and vegetable garden - pick whatever is available.

You are welcome to walk your socialised dogs onto the larger property to interact with the resident Labrador and Golden Retriever.

Location

Sedgefield, South Africa

The property is based in a quiet and safe rural area, a 15 minute drive from Sedgefield, and 25 minutes to Knysna and Wilderness - all through forestry plantations.

Being close to the Garden Route Trail Park, the Seven Passes Road, the Knysna forests and numerous hiking trails, this is a perfect base for cyclists and adventurers. Or if activity is not your thing, a romantic retreat for couples (although there is a sleeper couch for young children!), and an off-the-beaten track hide-away for the travel-weary.

Groenvlei / Lake Pleasant sits at the end of our road and is well-known for it's bass fishing. The Garden Route lake system and the lagoons of Sedgefield, Knysna and WIlderness offer numerous angling, boating / sailing, and bathing options.

During your stay
We live in the main house on the same property and are respectful of the need for privacy (the cottage is on its own fenced-off piece of land). However we will gladly help with any information and recommendations on the area, be it restaurants, activities or sightseeing. In addition, and in particular those with dogs, we invite you to use the rest of the land for walking / swimming purposes (amount of water in the dams varies according to drought and season). We have 2 very friendly dogs (a Labrador and a Golden Retriever) of our own who welcome socialised friends!
