Beautiful carbon neutral cottages in Plettenberg Bay

Owners Liz and Brian Phillips are committed to doing their bit for the environment. Over a period of years the Fynbos has been restored to its natural state by undertaking a burning schedule and continuous removal of all invasive alien vegetation. Fynbos is a collective term which describes the vegetation indigenous to the Southern Cape and includes well-known plant species such as proteas and ericas. In 2001 Fynbos Ridge was proclaimed a Private Nature Reserve by the Western Cape Nature Conservation Board. Many birds, butterflies and small mammals have now made Fynbos Ridge their home.

Steps we have taken to protect the environment and conserve natural resources include:

  • Landscaping with indigenous vegetation.
  • Installed solar heating.
  • Commissioned our own biological sewage treatment plant.
  • Use biodegradable cleaning products.
  • Recycle refuse.
  • Conserve rainwater.

“Fynbos Ridge is proud to have been awarded Carbon Neutral Approved status. Annually trees are planted to off-set our carbon footprint, and guests are encouraged to take part in this initiative.”

“What happens when location, location, location meets comfort, comfort, comfort?…Fynbos Ridge is the answer. Situated a few kilometers from Plettenberg Bay on the road to Knysna, Fynbos Ridge is not surrounded by crowds, other houses or accommodation establishments, it is where it should be – in peaceful, magnificent surroundings. The accommodation itself consists of several individually ‘amenitised’ rooms with en-suite bathrooms, big screen TV’s and extremely comfortable beds. The lounge area is stocked with a wide selection of DVD’s and the rest of the house has a bar, kitchen and dining room. Next we have breakfast – an assortment of fresh fruits, pancakes and cooked breakfasts will set you up for the day. All in all – excellent service, standard of facilities and quality of location and surroundings.” Roger, The Expedition Project
