Overview

Portland Manor
High in the hills above Knysna lies the historic estate of Portland Manor, known to readers of Dalene Matthee's "Moerbeibos" as the home of the Hon. Henry Barrington (1808 - 1882). His adventure seeking nature led to a chance meeting with Thomas Duthie from whom he purchased the farm "Die Poortlande". It took Henry 16 years to build Portland Manor and eventually completed the mansion fit for his bride, Georgeanna, in 1864.

Today the farm is owned by Mr and Mrs D.A.J Corne. At considerable expense and effort, they have lovingly and carefully restored Portland Manor. If Henry Barrington were to walk into the Manor today, he would be amazed to find that it has finally become the charming residence he dreamed of.

The estate also includes Lawnwood Lodge, an 18 bedroom lodge equipped with all the modern amenities and has been designed with the "Olde Worlde" feeling that the rest of the estate projects.

Manor Dining Room
The stylish and atmospheric decor of the dining room will transport you back to a bygone era. The Cape yellowwood floor and ceiling give this room a wonderful feel. The baby grand piano is played to our guests as they gather in the library, bar and lounge for pre dinner drinks.

The ambience that the music creates is a perfect start to a truly wonderful evening of fine wine and dining.

Dining Room
Manor guests have first choice of available seating in the exclusive 36 seater-silver service dining room.

Manor Bedrooms
Largely unaltered since building and subsequent rebuilding after the great fire of 1869, the 8 tastefully furnished bedrooms are comfortable and will ensure a peaceful night's rest. Some of our bedrooms afford enchanting 4 poster beds popular at the turn of the century.

All Manor House bedrooms offer a tea and coffee facility and hairdryer.

There are eight tastefully decorated and comfortable bedrooms within the Manor:

  • 4 en-suite double rooms
  • 2 doubles with shared bathroom
  • one family unit of 2 bedrooms and bathroom


    Selected rooms have 4 poster beds and spectacular views over the game park and 7ha Lawnwood Lake.

    We offer 4 star accommodation in Manor House, est.1864, and Lawnwood Lodge.

    The PackHouse Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner - a la carte meals of the highest standard, with the old 1860's Portland Arms English Pub and Sports Bar providing an unique ambience - the perfect setting for a friendly get together.

    NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is “per unit” the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
