We were overwelmed by the warm welcome of our host. Our rooms were squeaky clean, towels, bath soaps and shampoo were provided. Our balcony is overlooking a pocket garden and a pool! Our bed was comfortable to sleep at as it has a warmer beneath...More

The neighborhood was so incredibly quiet. The couple that run the guest house were so charming and hospitable. Great breakfast and adorable rooms. I wish we stayed longer. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets.

About
Description
Purple Heron Guest House is a luxury accommodation establishment, situated in an urban nature conservancy on the banks of the Swartvlei River. The area abounds with bird life and the river offers water activities More such as safe swimming and canoeing. The beautiful surrounds offer a feast of outdoor activities - bird watching, walking, hiking, cycling and lazing on the beach. Sedgefield is also one of the top paragliding areas in South Africa. Numerous excellent restaurants can be found close by and popular attractions such as Knysna, Plett, Oudtshoorn, Mossel Bay, Wilderness and George are all an easy drive away. The world famous Wild Oats Farmers' Market held every Saturday morning is a must and attending the annual "Slow Town" Festival held in April every year is highly recommended.At Purple Heron Guest House, our beds ensure an excellent night's sleep and our breakfasts send you out ready to enjoy a truly enjoyable day here on the truly beautiful Garden Route.Egret, a double room downstairs, is wheel chair accessible as are all the public rooms downstairs. The bathroom is suitable for visitors needing some adaption or who have someone to assist them. Less
