The Fernery at Forest Ferns

Tsitsikamma Coast, South Africa

This remote retreat surrounded by forests and farms has individual chalets overlooking the gorge of the Storms River. The beautifully furnished chalets, all in private and serene settings along the river, have wraparound decks, sitting rooms, and elegant bathrooms with claw-foot tubs. Meals at the lodge include ingredients grown in The Fernery’s own garden. The Fernery is part of an environmentally friendly fern-harvesting farm that employs local people and ships cut ferns to flower shops across Europe.
