About the neighbourhood
We are in Askop Road which is a rural and quiet road, with smallholdings and horse riding as well as the original Barnyard Theatre.
We overlook the indigenous forest so we often see deer, guinea fowl and small creatures like monkeys and mongoose. The birdlife is extraordinary and the Knysna Turaco (Loerie) is seen daily.
