About the neighbourhood
Askop Road, on which Treehouse Cottage is situated, is to the South of The Crags, and the properties on this beautiful road nestle in amongst the indigenous forest. The properties are large and at quiet times of the day you will see buck roaming freely. Monkeys, baboons, wild pig and other smaller creatures all live together in the forest and the bird-life is extraordinary! The Knysna Loerie, now known as the Knysna Turaco, is but one of the beautiful birds that are seen daily.
Treehouse Cottage is in Ashlands Estate which is a gated community and it is very quiet and very secure.
