Distinctly different! Lovely characterful, self-catering cottages, all with log fire-places, those on the edge of the cliff have some of the most spectacular views in SA. We also have B&B en-suite garden rooms. Cosy restaurant and bar with fire-places, serving delicious, mostly organic, locally grown fare. Great food and superb wines at excellent prices. 15 acres of beautiful gardens. Experience walking our acclaimed 'Labyrinth on the Edge'.

We had a wonderful two nights in Heavens Above. The cottage has everything needed to spend hours there taking in THE most incredible views. Make time for the outdoor shower and bath. The only thing missing was a deep freeze so bring your ice along!

"Read all reviews on accommodation in Hogsback before booking. Hogsback is a beautiful,quaint little town with stunning views everywhere."
"The cottages on the 'Edge' are the best, quite a few of the standard rooms don't enjoy the view as much."
