    Riddle Cottage is a cozy self-catering cottage set on one of the oldest properties in Hogsback. The main bedroom with an en-suite bathroom sleeps two people in a double bed. A single bed for couples travelling with one child is available in the lounge area. The kitchen is fully equipped for travelers preparing their own meals and a fireplace guarantees to warm everyone up during the cold winter days and nights.
    While the cottage is suited to all travelers, young families with one child will particularly enjoy the magical world of Harry Potter right here at Hogwarts Forest. Whether you are a Potterhead and enjoy the spellbinding and fun decor of the cottage, or whether you just want to unwind in nature, we've got something for everyone. Little people (and big ones too) will enjoy hunting for wild berries during the summer months. Animal lovers are welcome to feed the tortoise Norbert, visit our chickens and Vietnamese Potbelly Pigs and make friends with our canine and feline house elves.
    Hogsback is a place full of magic and beauty, of mountains, forests and waterfalls. It is the perfect location to unplug from the world and get back in touch with oneself and Mother Nature.
  • We loved the magical Riddel cottage with it’s muggle touches. Heike and Kinesh went out of their way to welcome us and had a wonderful tour through their herb garden and thanks for all the excellent information. Make sure you spend some time in their forest.

    Gideon2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • We wholeheartedly recommend Heike and Kinesh’s Riddle Cottage in their Hogwart’s Forest. It’s very spacious yet cozy, with a fireplace, big comfy bed, warm lighting and lots of blankets. Heike and Kinesh are the kindest and most generous hosts and you will absolutely feel at home in their little slice of paradise.

Our spot is the perfect starting point to explore Hogsback's beautiful nature with many hikes close by. Each Teepee has a PRIVATE BATHROOM. All proceeds go back into our Rescue Farm and animals. So come and support a good cause, while relaxing body and soul!
    We have 4 beautifully hand-crafted Teepee's on the property - FIRE, WATER, AIR & EARTH. You're welcome to check out photos & availability of each of our Teepee's, they're all listed on Airbnb here: www.airbnb.co.za/p/magicalteepees All 4 Teepee's stand on raised wooden decks, each with their own bathroom facility (shower, toilet and basin) just a few meters walk away. Inside each Teepee you'll find a comfortable king size bed (great for couples) or 2 x three-quarter beds, a super comfy couch, an original Mexican Chiminea that provides an amazing atmosphere & plenty of warmth and loads of fairy lights & paraffin lamps to add extra Magic after the sun has set. We've built awesome braai spots & fire pits close to each Teepee for guests to really get into the vibe & experience the magic of the mountain!

    Hogsback is a small village in the Amathole Mountains (Eastern Cape, South Africa) with an atmosphere of pure fantasy. Its' magical forests, waterfalls and mountains are perfect for hiking, sight seeing, bird watching and is a botanists' playground! It’s said that the mystical forests described in J.R.R.Tolkien’s famous trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings” was influenced by the Hogsback landscape as his son was part of the Royal Air Force in the region and sent Tolkien detailed sketches and descriptions of the Hogsback forests. Treat your tummy with delicious food at different little restaurants & quirky hotels, spoil a loved one (or yourself!) with unique hand-crafted items and feast your eyes on special attractions all the way from the beginning to end of the village.
  • Anke’s teepee experience is awesome! The property is home to more than 20 rescue dogs, all of which are friendly upon arrival. The teepee is very comfortable and clean. Each teepee has its own big bathroom, and the water is hot with good pressure. Anke gave us great tips on hiking routes. We loved this stay!

    Natalie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 100 % AWESOME !!! This isn’t just the kind of place to stay if you find yourself in Hogsback, this is the kind of place you should drive all day just to stay at! Anke, Tyl, and her team were so warm and friendly, and the teepee village they have built is inspiring beyond words. Every little touch was so well thought out, and their artistic sensibilities will leave you with a huge smile on your face. And can we talk about the dogs?! So many sweet dogs! It is such a cool thing they are doing and I implore you to go stay there! Go cozy up by the warm fire and pet some dogs. You will not regret it. It was our favorite Airbnb experience of all time!

    Darren2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most amazing time in our little Teepee which is really clean, cozy and stylish. Anke is super friendly and helpful and the animals remind you that you are supporting a local cause. Will definitely recommend

    Jess2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at a hogs life! Best thing to wake up in beautiful surroundings with all the sounds of the animals. There is so much to do in Hogsback too! The accommodation is incredible, we loved being able to light a fire in the evenings. Anke is really doing an amazing thing and giving these animals a second chance at life and it’s so nice to be a part of it for a while. Definitely book to stay here and support the amazing work they are doing!

    Maisie2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

    Keren2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience. Everything was perfect. Will highly recommend it to anybody. Better than most 5* hotels. Loved it!

    Johan2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Anke has put a lot of effort into creating the perfect “glamping” experience. It was the absolute perfect getaway where roughing it included a very comfortable bed and couch, a very cozy Mexican fire pit which was great to fight off the cold and create an amazing atmosphere. The bathroom was clean and an absolute treat to have our own private shower and toilet. Anke herself was the true gem — her welcoming and kindly demeanor made us feel right at home. The map and all the tips made us feel like locals knowing exactly where all the great spots were. It was a truly wonderful experience and we will definitely be back again.

    Duncan2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing experience! Absolutely loved staying in the Tee-Pee ~ such a well thought out room in terms of living space. Having the rescue animals around was just such a delight and added a more homey feel to me personally. Beautiful location and host was on point with the tourist hot spots :) Our time was too short so we will definitely visit again.

    Hogsback, Eastern Cape, South Africa

    My cozy yet spacious rustic eco-cabin is nestled in the Hogsback Mountains with a spectacular view of the three Hogs as well as Tor Doone. Affectionately named the Fox Den, the cabin is located on my small holding, Wild Fox Hill. The cabin is completely off the grid and is well positioned to enjoy beautiful morning and afternoon light. In the summer enjoy bonfires and outside baths under starry skies. Winters have frosty mornings, falling snow and roaring fires. Come and explore the mountains!
    Wild Fox Hill is a home of berries, fruit and indigenous trees, mountain scapes, light and abundant stars. The endangered Cape Parrot is a regular presence in the area and we are close to the secret waterfall, a local dam, beautiful flower filled grasslands, forests and extraordinary mountain views perfect for sundowners.
    Hogsback is a truly magical place, where it feels like gravity holds me here. It's a place of possibility, sacred spaces, expansive skys, intriguing forests, sparkling waters, and beautiful grasslands.
  • What a beautiful space! Enjoyed it immensely!

    Juli2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely eco cabin. The view is stunning and everything was really clean. We enjoyed our stay. However the WiFi did not work and there was no toilet paper and no soap.

    Tjark2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • What a stunning cabin with the most beautiful view. Such a friendly and welcoming host! Loved the friendly animals around. Can't wait to go back!

    Stacey2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really cool place to relax and enjoy the beautiful area. The cabin is awesome and has everything you need to be comfortable including a wood burning fire place in the den. Helen is a super nice host and gave us great info for the area and we did a nice trail run she suggested to an 800 year old tree and tall waterfall. Great value!

    Bryan2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay! Such a spectacular view and a blessing to stay at a eco cabin.

    Anna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Helen, for being a wonderful host in Hogsback. My friends and I were more than happy with the accommodation. The cabin is gorgeous and clean, and the views are wonderful. The beds were particularly comfortable and we felt right at home throughout. Thank you for suggesting we visit your sunset spot, it was the highlight of our trip. Although we only stayed one night, we wished we were staying longer and we definitely hope to come by again soon!

    Liam2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at your cottage in the sky. So beautiful from up there. The position and being high up above the trees with that amaizing view seemed to be the best place. Your view certainly was the best. There is a lovely Boma for making fires at night. The log cabin certainly blends in with the surroundings and is completely off the grid. Excellent bird watching position. Saw the elusive parrots. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and spread out. The deck out side with the views was the best. Highly recommended.

    Geoff2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    A quaint, well-appointed cottage on a working farm in the Cathcart/ Katberg region of the Eastern Cape.
    The thatched cottage comprises of two cosy double bedrooms, a comfortable lounge with fire place and well-equipped kitchenette. Snowfalls are a regular occurrence in winter and leave a blanket of white to explore through.
  • A beautiful location, and a clean, lovely cottage

    Birgit2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you want the perfect relaxing getaway in a picturesque, farm-style setting then this is the place for you. There was absolutely nothing to complain about. The only thing you need to know (as was well communicated by our hosts) is that the closest shops are in the towns quite a few km away. Buy your food on your way to the place and spend a night there in utter bliss.

    Travis2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A simple, down to earth cottage with cows outside your bedroom window. A great place to unwind - wonderful walks through the farm with the farm dog making sure no-one got left behind. We will definitely be back!

    Anne-Lise2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place, so conveniently off the main road. We had the privilege of seeing snow for the very first time. The whole landscape with stunning views was covered in this white blanket all from your cottage window. Sally's place is my next trip's only destination as this is the perfect place for family time.

    Rozelle2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely lovely spot in the mountains ! Beautifully positioned with amazing 360 degree views of the farmlands. We stayed one night with Sally, on our road trip up to KZN. But will certainly be returning for a longer weekend stay!!!!

    Katherine2019-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent night on this beautiful farm in a magnificent setting. We enjoy our stroll with Sally's dog around the farm. Sally is very hospitable and we enjoyed her welcoming confectionery. We highly recommend this establishment.

  • Unfortunately we were only 1 night in bramber cottage. Gloria welcomes us. The accommodation was super comfortable and well equipped. We had a barbecue. Everything was there, nothing was missing for the preparation. Also in the morning for breakfast. And the dishwasher was also very accommodating. The evening was quite fresh and we could make a nice fire in the oven in the oven. The garden is huge and beautiful. The cottage is just around the corner from the ecoshrine and the edge. If it is possible then you should try to stay longer than just one night. Many thanks, Gloria!

    Claudia2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Gloria's place was fantastic. Plenty of space for the four of us who were staying there. The location was perfect, food and entertainment were walkable distances from the house. Gloria was very accommodating and communicative during our stay. We couldn't have had a better host.

    Camphor Cabin is perfect for single travelers or couples needing an escape. Enjoy the view of the sunset from the balcony or cosy up by the fire. Take a stroll down to the waterfall or simply absorb being surrounded by nature. The choice is yours!
    Camphor Cabin is built below a Camphor Tree and is a cosy open plan spacious escape. The cabin itself is privately tucked into a soft hillside and accessed via steps which lead down to the entrance door. The open plan aspect of the design is to allow a warm and relaxed space of comfort and cosiness. The bathroom has a bath to enjoy a hot soak by candle light on those chilly Hogsback evenings. Everything has been crafted and handmade to capture the element of reusing, upcycling and recycling. The cabin is designed around being efficient and convenient. Grey water is filtered and redirected back into the contours of the hillside. Separate bins within the cabin are provided to make rubbish disposal easy and hassle free.
    Organic Origins is the last property on our road - after us you head into Forestry. Our neighbours north and west of us are the trees. Occasionally a timber truck or chainsaw may be heard but otherwise we are spoilt with a serene calmness and quiet. Due to the lack of light pollution the night sky is something to behold while you stand and gaze up to the milky way.
  • What a wonderful, wonderful stay at Camphor Cottage. It is the perfect escape, surrounded by trees and the "background noise" of a waterfall. We would also highly recommend taking Jaco up on his offer to make dinner - organic, made from scratch and delicious. Our stay was cut short due to the Corona crises. However, the hosts were extremely understanding and accommodating. We left feeling restored but also inspired to always aspire to live more sustainable, intentional and organic. We can't wait to return.

    Anton2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect getaway. A very stylish eco-friendly cabin hidden away in a forest with the sounds of a waterfall make it the perfect retreat from a busy lifestyle. Jaco and Dayle's breakfast is a sure treat and dinner is a MUST.

    Matt2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Dayle & Jaco was the best we had on our trip. We saw some amazing birds (including the rare Cape Parrot) just from the comfort of our private deck. Jaco's food and Dayle's massages were amazing. We hope to be back one day!

    Ines2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our time staying at the perfectly designed eco cabin. Our hosts, warm and welcoming were so very kind to offer us a lovely breakfast. Fresh, home baked bread from Jaco and tangy, delicious jam and lemon curd from Dayle. The view from the deck is stunning with an array of bird life in the day and at night, you hear croaking frogs under bright stars. Thank you very much, we will definitely come back.

    Elise2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Organic Origins is characterized by its charm and uniqueness. From small details to the amazing view, this is a perfect romantic getaway spot. Finaly its worth mentioning that Dayles home made bread was delicious.

    Lucy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautiful, clean and situated perfectly. Angus is very helpful and gave valuable information about the area. Definitely make a stop at their restaurant for not just amazing food but a wonderful experience. We will definitely stay there again.

    Pierre2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location location :) Close to everything important. Stunning garden we had a picnic in :) Monkeys and Birds everywhere! Had an amazing stay with wonderful hosts! We dined at their restaurant at their house, brilliant food and even beter hosting! You will not be dissapointed :) (when packing, think camping though as there is no stove, pots or pans. There is however a communal braai available, or you can dine out or bring a portable gas stove and pan along. Our hosts did lend us a pan with a smile though :) ) Enjoy!

    Juane2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding hospitable hosts living on a beautiful property. Quaint little cottage in a beautiful forest setting. Highly recommended

    Beth2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy little cottage and great view from the bed. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Edge restaurant and a few other places in Hogsback.

    Dylan2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous views, cozy and warm - even on the coldest nights. Beautiful hikes close by and within waking distance of the Edge.

    Meredith (Deets)2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We just loved our stay at Angus and Laurent - it felt like we were staying with old friends! We arrived at night. A heater was switched on so that our romantic cottage would be warm and cozy upon our arrival. We were also given the option to dine at the restaurant on the property - and wow, gourmet three course meals with lovely company! During our stay we also spent a lot of time on the stoep of our cottage and saw monkeys, turacos and other rare bird species. Laurent also gave us personalized maps and tips on beautiful hiking trails. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and actually felt sad to leave... We'll definitely be back!

  • We couldn't directly stay at Maggie's cause there were some issues with the bookings but she promptly referred us the the place right next to hers which was called "Maple Grove" and we had a really nice stay there. Thanks for helping us out so quickly.

    Florian2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

    Leana2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow what a great 3 days. If you really need to get a way to rejuvenate yourself, it is the place to be. You have to host that welcomes you and then stay out of the way but is available if you need her. Thanks Maggie. We will be back

    Danver2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely visit in Maggies place. She is a darling and we felt right at home. Beautiful place and very well stocked with everything you need and extra. Thank you very much - hopefully we will have the opportunity to be back soon

    Liza2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Meeting Maggie and staying with her was a real pleasure. The house is tucked away in the forest with a great view of her beautiful garden, peaceful and quiet. Most of all we loved the large veranda where we had breakfast in the warm sun each morning (after still very cold nights in November). Be aware, though, that the dirt roads in Hogsback are in very poor condition, with deep potholes even on the main street. But the beautiful nature surrounding the place is well worth a visit.

    Verena2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Maggie is a fantastic host (even if it has to be over WhatsApp if she’s traveling 😊) and the cottage and it’s charming surrounds are truly beautiful!

  • Norman and Jenny's cottage is highly recommended for your stay in Hogsback. The location is very central located but still surrounded by only nature; perfect for a good night sleep. The cottage has a beautiful manicured garden with many plants and flowers, + the terrace is perfect for having a braai. The cottage is super cozy, intelligently built and there is no missing link in its facilities. We attended a pottery workshop at Starways; we went hiking and visited beautiful waterfalls and we ate lunch at "The Edge". Highly recommended is the mushroom soup (but only in season available). All the information you need can be found in the book in the cottage. You immediately notice that the owners are very driven and well organized and run the cottage with love. Highly recommended! Thanks for everything.

  • The cabin at Maple Grove is situated in a beautiful part of Hogsback. The cabin is very spacious and well-decorated. The owners, Lyndsay and Peter went out of their way to provide advice about local things to do and where to eat. We booked in for four nights but enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed an extra night in Hogsback. Maple Grove is highly recommended!

    Paul2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

The private deck overlooking the garden is large and a lovely spot to enjoy morning coffee. Lyndsay and her husband are warm, attentive hosts and we felt most welcome. Highly recommended for a tranquil, beautiful week-end away.

    The Heron cottage is one of three cottages along with the main residence all private of each other on a privately situated 15 acre property bordering a stream.
  • A beautiful place in the middle of nature. The round table is very cozy with a nice and light space around it. A very pleasant and hospitable owner !! Remote place and rough road but then you have something!

    Letta2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our cottage was in a private spot amongst the trees and close to the birdlife and passing samango monkeys. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had all we needed. The indoor fireplace was a treat in the rainy weather. Bubuhle is close to the centre of Hogsback and though a rough road, it's manageable with a small car. We even saw flocks of the Cape Parrot along the road.

    Wendy2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Kerri2019-12-28T00:00:00Z

    Anel2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Lantern is a unique, romantic and special place. Loved the nights under the stars and the light bulps inside the bedroom making you feel like in a private fairy tale. In the middle of the woods, no wifif- lots of time to think, read and enjoys the surroundings that does fit into Hogsback like no other place. It is not that lonely, as looking on the pictures, as the caretakers and another house is directly beside the place, but we did not care at all. We were great looked after the caretakers and warmly welcome with a lot of tips! We would come back anytime!

    Jessi And Max2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Lantern is absolutely incredible! We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon trip of South Africa and it was without a doubt the standout accommodation of the trip! Such a unique, quirky, beautiful building- so fitting with Hogsback- an enchanting magical place! We had mist and some rain during our two days stay which we were told was the best weather to experience Hogsback at its best, we bought firewood for the wood burner and Braai and loved the cosy vibes in the woods! We were incredibly well looked after by the hosts, great communication, and wonderfully welcoming with a wealth of local tips! Thank you, we’d love to come back!

    Sean2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Lantern is an awesome space. The architecture and design is really imaginative and original. We had a great stay in this magical house in magical Hogsback. I only wish we lived there permanently.

    The ideal base for a magical Hogsback stay, relax and enjoy the beautiful setting of this charming country cottage. Settle in by the cosy fireplace or woodburning stove and unwind on the verandah for stunning views of the famous 3 Hogs Mountains.

Hogsback is an outdoor lover's Mecca with mountain biking, horse riding, abseiling, birding, waterfall hikes and more.

It is a welcoming, comfortable and clean space with a quaint rural feel to it. The bedroom has a double bed and 2 children can be accommodated in the lounge.
    Hogsback has many wonderful activities on offer as well as great places to enjoy a meal or a drink. Our favourite spots are The Edge for a drink, a meal or to have a sundowner on the cliff edge overlooking the valley. Butterflies Bistro for great food (lovely vegetarian options), Away with the Fairies backpackers lookout point where you can enjoy the view from what feels like the edge of the world, and Hogsback Adventures for all your adrenalin and outdoor needs.

  • This is a beautiful home to stay in in Hogsback over busy season if you are looking for peace and tranquility. We had all the benefits of being nearby the main road, away from new years crowds, with space to The garden is the highlight of this home: a place to laze under the trees and read your book, a shaded porch to eat breakfast, and plenty room to braai in the evening.

  • Had a great stay, even though we arrived late, alternatives were made for us to get the key. The house was clean and very homely. We had wood so it was easy for us to have a braai. We even had a fire place so we kept warm all the time.

    Anele2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully relaxing weekend in this holiday home. The property and house itself are much bigger in real life than it looks in the pictures. Beautiful views of the mountains from the garden, everything you could need in the kitchen and lots of cosy spots to settle down with a book. Our 3 dogs loved exploring the garden and checking out the monkeys! Will definitely book here again. :-)

    Donna2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is charming and has a well stocked kitchen (bring ingredients though) for cooking allow for a real home style meal, while away from home. The wood stove is a treat! Loved our stay there.

The Mexican Chiminea fire pot in the teepee was much needed, as it was quite a chilly night in Hogsback, and it worked incredibly well.

    Fill your heart while staying in Hogsback's little Teepee village on our Animal Rescue Farm! Spending time in our luxury Teepee's will let you reconnect with the simple ways of life & the magic that surrounds us. Our spot is the perfect starting point to explore Hogsback's beautiful nature with many hikes close by. Each Teepee has a PRIVATE BATHROOM. All proceeds go back into our Rescue Farm and animals. So come and support a good cause, while relaxing your body and soul!
    We have 4 beautifully hand-crafted Teepee's on the property - FIRE, WATER, AIR & EARTH. You're welcome to check out photos & availability of each of our Teepee's, they're all listed on Airbnb here: www.airbnb.co.za/p/magicalteepees All 4 Teepee's stand on raised wooden decks, each with their own bathroom facility (shower, toilet and basin) just a few meters walk away. Inside each Teepee you'll find a comfortable king size bed (great for couples) or 2 x three-quarter beds, a super comfy couch, an original Mexican Chiminea that provides an amazing atmosphere & plenty of warmth and loads of fairy lights & paraffin lamps to add extra Magic after the sun has set. We've built awesome braai spots & fire pits close to each Teepee for guests to really get into the vibe & experience the magic of the mountain! If you wish to use a kitchen, you're more welcome to use our facilities inside the main house. You will have a solar powered battery block inside the Teepee to charge cellphones and run the fairy lights. It's a great idea to bring a headlamp for after sunset hours to find your way to your private bathroom easier. We provide wood for free! No extra charges for refill :-) Guests do not have to interact with the animals, but are always welcome to give them some love and cuddles too! We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused, neglected and abandoned animals from the surrounding towns and villages. Our farm is home to an average of 20 dogs, 4 cats, 5 pigs and several chickens on 1.8 hectares of beautiful mountain land, between lush green trees and vast space, creating a home and safe heaven for these animals. Who knows, you might even fall in love with a four legged friend during your stay! We also have loads of daily visitors, including the Cape Parrot, Knysna Lourie, Samango Monkeys and more...
    Hogsback is a small village in the Amathole Mountains (Eastern Cape, South Africa) with an atmosphere of pure fantasy. Its' magical forests, waterfalls and mountains are perfect for hiking, sight seeing, bird watching and is a botanists' playground! It’s said that the mystical forests described in J.R.R Tolkien’s famous trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings” was influenced by the Hogsback landscape as his son was part of the Royal Air Force in the region and sent Tolkien detailed sketches and descriptions of the Hogsback forests. Treat your tummy with delicious food at different little restaurants & quirky hotels, spoil a loved one (or yourself!) with unique hand-crafted items and feast your eyes on special attractions all the way from the beginning to end of the village.
  • A very special place to stay at while visiting Hogsback.

    Joshua2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Anke’s place is a wonderful escape for South African’s and travellers from afar. So many dogs to love and the tents so tastefully decorated and beds comfortable. Looking forward to seeing it once everything is all set up!

    High Goonvrea's Woodland Cabin is a secluded hideaway in its own large private woodland and garden. It is the perfect peaceful retreat from the world. The garden is a cacophony of colour in spring with the Azaleas and Rhododendrons. Winter can be white. But every season has its own beauty. Whether the sun is shining, or the mists are swirling Hogsback is a place of myth and magic. Just watch that you don't step on the woodland and garden fairies! Book for a magical stay.
    The Woodland Cabin is a brand new retreat in its own private woodland and garden. It's small but perfectly designed to include a sitting area in front of a wood burner, a fully-equipped kitchenette with counter top oven and stove, a microwave and all appliances. The bedroom has a built in cupboard and a separate bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. There is a covered patio overlooking the beautiful old garden with table and two folding chairs. Another two chairs are available on request. A small weber braai is supplied. Explore the 15 acres of woodland and garden on this spectacular property. Walk to the top along the path at the edge of the property and then climb Tor Doone if you are feeling energetic. Or simply sit in the garden and listen to the birds. Watch out for the Turaco (or Knysna Lourie). When it launches into flight the spectacular crimson colour under its wings is visible. There is deliberately no wifi or TV in this cabin as it's designed as a restful retreat in nature. The perfect privacy and peace of this little cabin in the woods will refresh your mind and spirit. A little further off on the property are two other units should these be required: the two bedroomed Cottage and the Garden Flat.
    Hogsback is high in the Amatola mountains of the Eastern Cape. As you climb up the mountain pass and leave the Karoo behind, you enter a different micro-climate and another world. Hogsback is rich in natural beauty but also has other fascinating places to visit, like the Eco Shrine and the Labyrinth, art galleries and craft sellers. During the Spring Festival many of the beautiful private woodland gardens are open to the public. Tolkien is said to have been inspired to write The Hobbit here and one can imagine how Hogsback evoked Middle Earth for him. The indigenous forests, the mountain paths, the waterfalls, the winding lanes and the quaint cottages all contribute to the air of enchantment. Experience the magic of Hogsback: hike through the indigenous forest, say hello to a Hobbit, splash in the waterfalls, climb Tor Doone, admire the fascinating outdoor art installation at the Eco Shrine, walk the labyrinth at The Edge, stroll through the open woodland gardens in Springtime, make a snowman in winter, have a delicious light meal in the garden at Butterfly’s Bistro or a more formal meal at The Edge. Or just relax in the garden and listen to the birds and cicadas. The Tourist Centre at the Gallery in the village can give you lots of ideas of things to see and do. Hogsback and High Goonvrea will always welcome you.
  • Private magically cottage- perfect escape from reality.

    Jocelyn2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Woodlands Cottage is exactly as it is pictured - quiet, peaceful and right under the trees. Its not large but really adequate for two people - everything works and care has been given to guests comfort. We loved it and will be back. Thank you Pieter and Nic

  • We had the most special stay at Anke's teepee getaway. Wow we were so surprised by the magic of it all! Truly a once in a lifetime experience. With the touch of a warm welcome by Anke and all her puppies, as well as Junior ready to help whenever we needed. We had so much fun listening to giant thunderstorms while curled up in front of the Mexican fireplace and surrounded by fairylights. Absolute value for money!

    Dillon2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • A Hog's Life is a real insider tip and a very special experience! Anke is a great host. We would come back at any time and recommend it to everyone. Everything is detailed and lovingly built and furnished by hand. Just a dream !

    Janina2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • One of my best Airbnb experiences!! The teepee was beautiful, comfortable and so relaxing. They were waiting for us with the fire on and candles in the teepee. Everything was clean and so beautiful. On top of that unique Teepee experience, they help so much animals and rescue them. If you like animals and want to feel close to the nature this is the best place to go! Felt in love with the dogs and baby bigs, soo cute!! merci encore Anke, quel séjour inoubliable. Jessica et Ivan xxx

    Jessica2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is the right place to make your childhood dream of living in a teepee come true. We arrived on a rainy day, so having a fireplace in the teepee created a very nice feeling of coziness. We received some love and cuddles from the rescued animals which was a lovely bonus to our stay. Would come back again in a heartbeat.

    Kat2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was not just accommodation but a whole new experience. The luxury themed tented camp and animal sanctuary blend well together. Great hosts who spent time to chat with us. A Hog’s Life is a once in a lifetime experience!

    Elsabe2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Anke was a excellent host, she made us feel welcome and went the extra mile to ensure that we have a memorable trip. It is an amazing experience staying over in one of the Teepees and it compliments the magical feeling of Hogsback.

    Blackwood Cottage is ideal for a solo adventurer or traveling couple. We are situated at the end of our road (being the last property before one heads into Forestry), but still close enough to the Village for exploring if one chooses to - although there is plenty to explore right on our doorstep. Enjoy the sights & sounds of our very own waterfall - or simply stoke the wood burning fire and take some time out. You choose!
    Blackwood Cottage has been renovated into a bright yet cosy space. It stands adjacent to some large Blackwood trees but enjoys wonderful sunshine all year round. Much of the contents have been handmade or up-cycled giving it a completely unique atmosphere. The kitchenette has a two plate gas hob, refrigerator, toaster and all the necessary crockery/cutlery one should need. The bathroom is complete with basin, toilet and a spacious shower. Feel free to take yourself on one of the meandering pathways down to the river and the waterfall. Or enjoy a stroll through the orchard. Besides the main house, workshop and other private cabins/cottages, guests are free to explore the property and surrounds at their own leisure. As we have two very friendly and curious dogs, please don’t be surprised if they join you on a stroll!
    Our property, Organic Origins, is the last property on our road - after us you head into Forestry. Our neighbours north and west of us are the trees. Occasionally a timber truck or chainsaw may be heard but otherwise we are spoilt with a serene calmness and quiet. Due to the lack of light pollution the night sky is something to behold while you stand and gaze up to the milky way.
  • Great hosts - great private dinner experience! Lovely tranquil location.

    Jean2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • An exquisite and rustic cabin for a perfect quiet getaway. Hosts are helpful and kind.

    Jacoba ( Cobie)2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Blackwood cottage is a cozy and compact place to stay. The kitchenette is tiny, but well-organized and supplied with exactly the right dishes and tools. Dayle and Jaco have an excellent composting and recycling system -- we enjoyed talking with them about their methods for sustainable gardening and building on the property. Walking trails begin on the property to take you through the woods and rivers. A quiet and relaxing place to stay!

    Katie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely "chalet de montagne". Beautiful garden, with some samangos and baboons that are not annoying at all. On the contrary, this is such a different place! You are close to the main shops and restaurants in Hogsback, but you’ve got the feeling that you’re hidden in a secret garden... Go and stay at Graham’s cottage!

    Elise2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • In a great location. Close it everything on Hogsback. Graham is a friendly host. He gave us a great recommendation about a night market on the Friday night we were there. The cottage itself is also very well kept and clean. We really enjoyed the deck which overlooks a tranquil garden.

    Jessica2018-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely cottage nestled in the heart of Hogsback. Perfect for a short or extended stay with space to relax on those very rainy days and plenty to do in the area for the not-so-rainy days. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be back.

    Gryffin Cottage is a charming self-catering cottage set on one of the oldest properties in Hogsback. The main bedroom with an en-suite bathroom sleeps two people in a king-size bed and has the possibility of a single bed for couples travelling with one child. The cozy loft right under the thatch roof sleeps two people. The kitchen is fully equipped for travelers preparing their own meals and an open fire place guarantees to warm everyone up during the cold winter days and nights.
    While the cottage is suited to all travelers, young families with kids will particularly enjoy the magical world of Harry Potter right here at Hogwarts Forest. Whether you are a Potterhead and enjoy the spellbinding and fun decor of the cottage, or whether you just want to unwind in nature, we've got something for everyone. Little people (and big ones too) will enjoy hunting for wild berries during the summer months. Animal lovers are welcome to feed the tortoise Norbert, visit our chickens and Vietnamese Potbelly Pigs and make friends with our canine and feline house elves.
    Hogsback is a place full of magic and beauty, of mountains, forests and waterfalls. It is the perfect location to unplug from the world and get back in touch with oneself and Mother Nature.

  • Hogwart`s Forest has two nice cottages to stay and we had a chance to try out them both. Both were wonderful, private and filled with all the details you will ever need. We loved the coziness in Slitherin and wildness in Gryffindor. Hike and her family treated us extremely well, they made our stay special with all the local tips, veggies from the garden and hiketrip to an ancient forest. We strongly recommend.

    Ivika2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The Chetty’s are incredible hosts, with thoughtful touches and very passionate about the surrounding they live in. They have incredible knowledge on the area and made our stay most enjoyable. It was our second stay and won’t be the last. If you think you’d enjoy the tranquility and peace of a mystic forest, you won’t go wrong. The place is great to unwind and recharge.

    Jonas2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Absolutely Enchanting....Silver Birch Cottage is nestled in the forest, close to cascading waterfalls. The cottage is custom-built to provide comfort and beauty. An unforgetable encounter with Nature, - the magical beauty will enchant you! Great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
    Just a stone's throw from private waterfalls - this quaint, bespoke self-catering cottage is a nature-lover's dream getaway. The deck seems to float above the forest and a private path leads to one of the 3 waterfalls on the property. Fine art paintings and sculptures add flair and the victorian bath adds charm as you soak away your troubles gazing through the diamond window, out through the trees. Well-insulated with a cozy fireplace and down duvets for chilly nights. Well-equipped kitchen & portable braai.
  • This place is a must. Awesome wooden chalet in the forest. Really enjoyed the walks to the waterfalls on the property. Great views from the house and the place is well equipped. We cannot wait to go back.
