Description

Craighross Castle, Noetzie Beach, Knysna, South Africa

 

At Craighross you can let your imagination soar as you rule over a mystical kingdom in one of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled beach locations.

 

The historic, privately owned Noetzie Castles are world famous. Located just 20 minutes from Knysna, their stunning oceanfront location and extraordinary design have made them a favourite retreat for the rich and famous – including Nelson Mandela and his family. The stunning sandy beach, rocky outcrops harbouring wild oysters, the meandering Noetzie River and the backdrop of fynbos-covered cliffs are part of a prime nature conservation area.

 

Dolphins, sharks and whales (in season) are regular visitors, as are several species of sea birds and raptors. By night, the minimal light pollution makes stargazing an unforgettable experience.

 

Being right on the beach, you’ll wake up to nothing but the roar of the Indian Ocean and the call of the oystercatchers. Here you can forget the stresses of everyday life in an environment of peace and seclusion.


The area between Knysna & Plettenberg Bay is nature’s playground. In addition to scenic drives, boat trips on the Knysna lagoon & beautiful forest and coastal walks, there are several superb wildlife reserves and sanctuaries - perfect for children & adults alike.

 

These include: Knysna Elephant Park, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Buffalo Hills & Plettenberg Game Reserves, Tenikwa Wild Cat Park, Noah’s Park Wolf Sanctuary, Eagle Encounters & Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary. A day trip to the ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn, the magnificent Cango Caves or the Tsitsikamma National Park will prove unforgettable.

 

The extensive and spacious accommodation offered at Craighross Castle is enhanced by modern facilities. Sleeping up to 14 people, plus a separate room with its own entrance (ideal for visitors bringing their own maid or nanny), it’s perfect for large families or groups of friends. It features an impressive master bedroom on the top floor with a lounge area, coal-effect gas fire, well-appointed ensuite bathroom with separate shower, dressing room and patio with glorious sea views.

 

On the ground floor there are two ensuite bedrooms with kingsize beds and superb ocean views, two further twin/king rooms (both with ensuite facilities) and a large children’s bedroom - playroom with 2 sets of twin beds and its own bathroom.

 

At the heart of the castle is a light and airy lounge/dining room with fireplace, opening out to a unique walled patio. Overlooking the beach, it’s a romantic setting for al fresco meals and sundowners. Off the lounge, there’s a separate family room with Satellite TV, DVD player & iPod docking station.

 

The spacious, well equipped kitchen and adjoining utility room features a hob & oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and ample crockery, cutlery, cooking pots and utensils. A breakfast bar and wide serving hatch (with doors) link the kitchen to the dining room.

 

NOTE: As the castle can only be accessed via the beach, guests should use the alloted parking space at the entrance to the beach (around 100m from the castle). A free porterage service to convey luggage is provided at the beginning and end of your stay. This service can also be requested at other times for an additional charge.
