The Featherbed Company gives visitors to the Garden Route 'an unforgettable experience on the Knysna Lagoon'. The Lagoon, more accurately defined as an estuary, has five fresh water rivers flowing in from the surrounding Outeniqua Mountains meeting with the surge of sea water from the Indian Ocean through the mighty headlands – known as the 'Knysna Heads' - the grand sandstone cliffs towering above the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon.
Go down to the water's edge on the lagoon and fish from shore or paddle among the boats and canoes. Bring your own and launch from the jetty while enjoying one of the best views of Knysna and the lagoon. Brenton is ideally situated both as a mid-point in a busy holiday for a few relaxing days on the beach or as a base from which to explore the delights and attractions of the Garden Route, all within easy reach. Brenton will always delight the discerning traveller. Enjoy the bustle of nearby Knysna but return to the peace and relaxing beauty of Brenton on Sea and on Lake.
