As a seaside village, Sedgefield lends itself towards a tranquil lifestyle where residents and visitors can walk or cycle freely through the picturesque streets of our town. Being surrounded by some seven vleis (wetlands), the bird life and fishing are in abundance as well as being a haven for fauna and flora alike.
Water sports and leisure activities are available in and around Sedgefield, with two mashie golf courses and full golf courses in George and Knysna.
For the more adventurous, paragliding and hang gliding is a major attraction in the village, with the launch site situated opposite the guesthouse.
Whale watching, hiking and many other activities can be enjoyed almost all year round as the temperate climate is ideal. Sedgefield also boasts 5 pristine beaches where surfers, day trippers and sun worshippers can relax.
Restaurants, coffee shops and other eateries are within walking distance of the B&B, providing a wide, tasty range of cuisine to meet everyone’s cravings, from take-outs to elegant dinners for those special occasions.
City slickers need not despair, as Knysna and George are 35km east and west of Sedgefield, where malls, clubs and cinemas can be found, not to mention the wide variety of shops and stalls.
