Belvidere Manor

The beautifully restored Belvidere House, nestled amid ancient oaks, presides over 10 acres of manicured gardens with lovely views of the lagoon and surrounding forests. Belvidere Manor is situated in the Garden Route's treasure trove of pristine beaches, lush indigenous forests and tranquil estuaries. South Africa's most romantic and most relaxed getaway.  Enjoy the beguiling tranquillity of the west shore of Knysna's lagoon. Relax by the swimming pool in the beautiful gardens (Belvidere Estate is a nature-lover's paradise with more than 270 bird species identified), or retreat to the secluded comfort of the sunny terrace or cosy fireplace in your own Cape-style cottage.

Belvidere Manor Restaurants

Caroline's Bistro: Belvidere Manor's new-look restaurant.... serving a contemporary menu embracing the 'gastronomica' ethics of sustainable, locally sourced produce - slow-cooked or lightly tossed - the result will delight! The Bell Tavern: Knysna's smallest pub is housed on the site of the original Belvidere farmhouse, and indeed a feature of the pub is the wine cellar viewed through the window in the floor, where freshly caught game would have been hung. With a yellowwood ceiling and ironwood block floor, The Bell is a quaint favourite of the Belvidere locals. Relish pub meals served outside in the garden in summer, but in the winter enjoy the cosy warmth of the wood-burning stove. A wide selection of beers, wines & spirits are available.
