About Portland Manor Knysna Accommodation
So Henry Barrington recorded in his diary of January 1865. Now lovingly and carefully restored by the new owners, Denis and Debbie Corne, Portland Manor has once again become the charming residence he dreamed of.
Situated high in the hills above Knysna, Portland Manor is a beautiful historical citrus and game estate. You are invited to stay with us - or simply visit for a day - to experience the warmth and comfort of country life at its best.
We also offer the perfect facilities for private or corporate functions. Four star accommodation in the Manor House and Hotel, the best of country cuisine in the Pack House restaurant, friendly ambiance in the 1860’s Portland Arms English Pub, and wedding and conference space in the Manor Hall - or in marquees set up in the extensive gardens.
You may also want to indulge in a variety of activities on and around the farm - fly fishing or canoeing on Lawnwood Lake, game and bird viewing, hiking and mountain biking in our indigenous forest, a game of petanque in our gardens. Or simply relaxing around the pool or in the library.
