Belvidere Manor is located on Knysna Lagoon, with breathtaking views of blue waters, surrounding forests and the Outeniqua Mountains beyond.

There are 30 fully serviced cottages offering either lagoon or garden views. Each cottage is individually decorated in warm earthy tones and most have a light and airy feel. All cottages have a fully equipped kitchen; they are either single or double storey and range from one to three bedrooms. They all feature a wide veranda, comfortable lounge with fireplace, telephone and satellite TV and they are all fully serviced.
The original manor house has the drawing room, an information centre with a small DVD library and internet facilities, an outdoor terrace over looking the pool and gardens and Caroline's at Belvidere. Superb cuisine is served in the gracious dining room furnished with fine Cape antiques. The Bell Tavern, located behind the manor house serves alcohol and offers a pub-style menu. If you would prefer not to dine at the property you will need to drive to one of the local restaurants or into Knysna itself where the waterfront complex offers an eclectic mix of dining options.
